Ascension is the keyword for Australian, now Londoner, Teneil Throssel's highly anticipated debut album. From the opening track "Channels" there is already a feeling of transcendence above the sweaty dance floors that HAAi usually reigns queen over. Like stumbling through an unfamiliar rave, we are presented next with "Pigeon Barron" which is as if you are listening to a dance party through a wall, with its slightly muffled textures and unpredictable breaks. Throssel's rich and organic approach to her production mixes euphoric ambience with mercurial techno beats creating a tracklist that sweeps you away. 


Unlike many techno albums, Baby We're Ascending is much more than just an hour of hard hitting beats you can flail your limbs to. Championing a heavily male-dominated field, HAAi brings a more sensual and 'communal' approach to her work. Using UK trans activist Kai-Isaiah Jamal’s spoken-word poetry cuts through the capricious "Human Sound", Alexis Taylor's voice from Hot Chip on "Biggest Mood Ever" and Jon Hopkins input on "Baby We're Ascending", the collaborative tracks here recreate the sense of inclusivity that techno raves allow space for. 


On the rest of the album, it is the solo tracks that give us those punchy moments every electro fan looks for, with highlights on the dark "Louder Always Better", "AM", "FM" and "Purple Jelly Disc." Beyond that of the underground venues that HAAi is known for, this debut comes as a refreshing surprise, showing Throssel's true versatility not only as a DJ, but also as a budding producer. A truly current and almost tangible album, surely fans will be flocking to the dancefloors to hear more. © Jessica Porter-Langson / Qobuz

Tango: Sounds of the Río de la Plata

Rooted in dance and eventually becoming its very own artistic movement, the history of tango is an epic one; and its future truly looks limitless. A musical genre with hybrid origins, it remains one of the most incredible creations to come out of Río de la Plata. “It’s the only thing we don’t ask Europe for its opinion on,” wrote Argentina’s Macedonio Fernández, the man that young Jorge Luis Borges admired “to the point of devout and passionate plagiarism.” A number of coincidences in the late 19th century gave rise to this style of music. As musicologist Carlos Vega said: "no one really tried to create tango." And yet, here it is; complete with its own traditions and innovations, as well as its own golden age, ill-fated artists, myths and rituals.

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.

Moby, 30 Years in Search of the Light

Moby is that rarest of artists, a songwriter who has evolved from punk to techno/house to pop, all while continuing to compose ambient music. To mark the release of Reprise, a collection of covers celebrating 30 years of songwriting, Qobuz revisits the career of an artist who has constantly kept the music world off-balance – sometimes even wrong-footing himself – before finally finding his artistic sweet-spot.
