For his fourth solo album, Arca has decided to display all her facets. For the Venezuelan producer, who now identifies as a trans woman, expression isn’t just about musical marketing but an introspective journey. “We all have multiple personalities. There was a clear intention [on the album] to allow every self to express itself [. . .and] allow for modulation between them in a spontaneous way. There is no such thing as normal.” Such fluidity is proven on the first track Non Binary, where the vocals change in an evolutive way. 


Recruited for her sense of sound design by Kanye West and Franck Ocean, Arca has a unique skill for expressing her emotions in a digital format, often even mathematical, like in the song featuring Catalan singer Rosalía whose voice is broken down and reassembled on the cyberpunk reggaeton KLK. Her reunions with Björk, with whom Arca produced the album Utopia in 2017, are particularly good (Afterwards), as well as her collaboration with SOPHIE which should satisfy the expectations of all futuristic pop fans. An onion of an album, which will leave you in a disorientated state of marvel. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the ’90s, the trip hop wave overtook the UK with an electronica sound influenced by Jamaican music and hip hop beats. With their chloroformed rhythms and heavy ambience, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and several other outfits invented a kind of dark, futuristic and often cinematic soul music. Here’s a spotlight on 10 albums from a genre with blurred sonic borders but a definitive musical influence.
