On their third release overall and second full-length, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth scaled back on the expansive scope of their sprawling first opus, Mecca & the Soul Brother, indeed opting to magnify the main ingredients of their sound: Pete Rock's brilliant production chops and C.L Smooth's complex lyrical delivery. The result is an album that is far more focused, with all the ragged edges and loose threads tied up. It is also just as good as the first record, perhaps an even more satisfying single listen. The Main Ingredient is full of rich, resonant, hypnotic songs -- the production being among some of the most seductive in hip-hop -- that subtly, but absolutely, swing with their lock-step precision. In characteristic Pete Rock fashion, all of the sharp edges have been sanded down, leaving a vibrant and completely lush musical backdrop which seems to have a dreamy nostalgia about it. Old '60s and '70s soul, soul-jazz, and funk samples abound, and the music is dotted with gauzy keyboard washes, hugely echoed bass-drum kicks, milky basslines, and muted horn loops, almost sounding like they are emanating out of water. All of the songs feel immediate, yet they are infused with the sort of roomy ambience that lends to each the impression of a classic tune, evocative of an earlier era, but not one that can be described exactly, and not one to which you can definitively point. As usual, C.L. Smooth is lyrically on point, spitting out intellectual rhymes and narratives that are just as propulsive and engaging as the music. The only negative aspect about the album, then, is that it ended one of the finest hip-hop duos of the first half of the 1990s.

Hip-hop : 8 producteurs de légende

Peut-on imaginer Guru sans DJ Premier et De La Soul sans Prince Paul ? Derrière chaque rappeur iconique et chaque groupe culte, il y a un producteur visionnaire qui a appris de ses aînés et développé son propre son. Du pionnier Marley Marl, qui posa les bases de la production moderne en exploitant les capacités des premiers samplers, à la comète J Dilla qui, avant sa mort à 32 ans, a réussi à durablement imprimer sa marque, en passant par la révolution sonique ourdie par le Bomb Squad et la domination sans partage sur la West Coast de Dr Dre, tour d’horizon des pontes de studio qui ont régné pendant trente ans sur le monde du hip-hop.

Les 10 titres qui ont fait la French Touch

Il y a vingt ans, la French Touch envahissait les clubs et les ondes radio du monde entier, installant l’Hexagone en bonne place sur la carte des musiques électroniques. Qobuz vous raconte l’histoire des 10 titres qui ont marqué cette période dorée pour les producteurs français.

L'âge d'or du rap existe-t-il ?

Du milieu des années 80 à celui des années 90, le hip hop a vécu une révolution artistique sans précédent. Une décennie d’une richesse alors inédite où brillera le talent de Public Enemy, De La Soul, N.W.A, Eric B & Rakim, A Tribe Called Quest et bien d’autres. Alors, le rap c'était mieux avant ?
