Si le titre du quatrième album de Missy Elliott reprend le vocabulaire du bâtiment (Under Construction), c’est sans doute moins pour s’excuser par avance d’une quelconque défaillance ou vice caché (le vice, d’ailleurs, ne reste jamais caché très longtemps chez Missy Elliott, comme le prouve, au hasard, la moite ballade « Pussycat ») qu’en référence à la manière dont le disque est construit : des fondations solides, mais une architecture moderne et audacieuse.

Les fondations, ce sont bien sûr ces multiples clins d’œil aux débuts du hip hop, évoqués ici aussi bien dans la forme (les samples de Frankie Smith ou de Run DMC) que dans le fond (« Back In The Day », ode à l’esprit des pionniers et au bon vieux temps).

La solidité de cette base permet aux architectes d’imaginer les constructions les plus audacieuses dans les étages supérieurs : sonorités saturées, breaks en rafale, percussions discrètes (« Go To The Floor », une entrée en matière qui, d’emblée, envoie effectivement au tapis), groove sale et textes salaces (« Work It »), voix affolées et samples d’origine inconnue (« Gossip Folks »)… Pas de doute : nous sommes bien ici dans une production signée Timbaland, et celui-ci ne s’est visiblement pas assagi avec le temps.

Les pieds dans la tradition, mais la tête dans les étoiles : c’est dans ce mélange de classicisme et de modernité, bien mieux dosé que sur Miss E… So Addictive, que réside la force de Under Construction. Résultat : si l’album n’évite pas toujours redites et longueurs (une petite baisse de régime à mi-parcours, assez peu étonnante sur un album d’une heure), il n’en reste pas moins, aujourd’hui encore, le disque le plus équilibré de Missy Elliott.

Future, tragédie en trois actes

Avec les mixtapes “Monster”, “Beast Mode” et “56 Nights”, sorties à quelques semaines d'intervalle entre octobre 2014 et mars 2015, Future a repris le contrôle de sa carrière et offert au rap contemporain l'un de ses tournants. Retour sur l'ascension chaotique du rappeur le plus important et le plus fascinant de son temps.

Warp, 30 ans de musique risquée

Le catalogue de Warp, la maison de disques qui a permis l’éclosion de certains des artistes les plus exigeants de la musique électronique, comme Aphex Twin, LFO, Boards of Canada, Autechre ou Squarepusher, est désormais disponible sur Qobuz. L’occasion idéale pour revenir sur la destinée du label indépendant le plus respecté d’Angleterre.

Comment Kanye West a renversé le hip-hop

En vingt ans, Kanye West a plusieurs fois changé le cours du rap et influencé comme très peu de ses contemporains la pop de son époque. Il a collaboré avec Paul McCartney, Rick Rubin, Daft Punk ou Rihanna, relancé les carrières de Jay-Z et Common, révélé Kid Cudi ou John Legend et est une influence majeure pour des artistes tels que Childish Gambino, Drake ou The Weeknd. Retour sur la carrière d’un artiste qui reste une énigme.
