Jon Hopkins got a pretty big résumé boost in 2008 through his production work (alongside Brian Eno and others) on Coldplay's Viva la Vida. Prior to this he had worked with Massive Attack and released two albums on small labels. His debut for Domino, 2009's Insides, is his first record that many people will hear and it's a promising, but flawed, debut. It shows that Hopkins has a firm grasp on many styles of electronic music but doesn't prove to be a master of any. He dips into ominously distorted gangsta glitch on the title track, lush big beat on "Wire," burbling orchestral dubstep on "Vessel," and icy cold IDM on "Colour Eye," and while each excursion sounds good, there is nothing much happening that a fan of electronic music in its many forms hasn't heard done better before. If there is an overriding aesthetic to Insides, it's the kind of ambient techno that labels like Instinct and artists like Pete Namlook and Irresistible Force were making in the early '90s. He creates acoustic instruments with synthesizers and programmed beats to create very pleasant, very well-crafted pieces that don't really challenge the listener but instead create a kind of warm, fuzzy blanket of sound for them to settle into. The problem many artists face who attempt this is that the end result comes awfully close to sounding like generic new agey music that drifts in one ear and out the other. While there are some tracks, like the overly subdued "The Low Places" and the beat-free songs that bookend the album ("The Wider Sun" and "Autumn Hill") that fall prey to this, mostly Hopkins' ear for a good melody and his willingness to occasionally dirty up the beats keep the album off of life support. The best song here, the sunny and bright, epic-length electro-ballad "Light Through the Veins," even points to a possible future where Hopkins develops a voice of his own and makes a record that breaks free of the genre exercises and half-formed ideas that may keep Insides from being a success.

Nils Frahm, ein untypischer Pianist

Das Talent von Nils Frahm wird seit zehn Jahren von Kritikern klassischer Musik sowie von Liebhabern elektronischer Experimente gleichermaßen hoch gelobt. Ob er auf einer Kirchenorgel oder auf einem mit Effektpedalen ausgestatteten Synthesizer spielt, der deutsche Pianist blickt immer nach vorn und das macht ihn anscheinend so überzeugend. Zum heutigen Piano Day, den er ins Leben gerufen hat, um dem Klavier und seinen Meistern Ehre zu gebühren, drehen wir eine Runde durch seine Diskographie.

Neoklassik: eine neue Welt an der Grenze zwischen Elektro und Klassik

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama…In den letzten Jahren wurden diese beliebten Namen alle unter dem weit gefassten und unscharfen Begriff „Neoklassik“ eingeordnet. In Wirklichkeit sieht diese „Szene“ eher wie ein zusammengewürfelter Haufen suchender Künstler aus, die – mit einer offenkundigen Verbindung zu den Pionieren des amerikanischen Minimalismus – klassische Instrumente und elektronische Produktion vermischen, die mit Spaß an der Sache auf beiden Seiten ihres musikalischen Spektrums Perspektiven schaffen.

Erased Tapes, ein nicht allzu klassisches Label

Gleich bei seiner Gründung im Jahre 2007 machte sich Erased Tapes als eines der innovativsten Labels der letzten fünfzehn Jahre einen Namen und hatte beim Publikum großen Erfolg. Da es manchmal allzu schnell auf seine neoklassischen Aushängeschilder (Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds) reduziert wurde, suchte das Londoner Label nach neuen Ideen an der Grenze zu Ambient, Electronica und Experimental, wobei der harmonisch zusammengestellte Katalog dem Deutschen Robert Raths zu verdanken ist...
