The opening cut by this long overdue release from electronica second runners Fluke does its best to sound like 1999 Prodigy with its dark rock vocals and gritty breakbeats. A little investigation reveals that much of this album was in fact, first recorded as a set of demos, entitled Xmas Demos in, you guessed it, 1999. Fortunately, Fluke doesn't simply mimic the Prodigy's platinum-selling template, although very little of this album feels modern by any stretch. In fact, Fluke seems to have dug farther back, staying true to the trance-inducing sound of early rave music on dance thumpers like "Another Kind of Blue" and "Hang Tough," which seamlessly blend together à la DJ mix. Additionally, occasional vocalist John Fugler goes even farther back, with a tone and cadence that points to old industrial acts, most obviously Nine Inch Nails, although without the scream in Trent Reznor's patented scream/moan dynamic. Fluke will shoot for the sky at times, with closer "Blue Sky" incorporating an entire choir on the chorus, although its effectiveness will depend on where your histrionics threshold lies. Of course, the notion that two studio boffins can produce overwhelming sonic crescendos via their computers is by now a well-established fact, hardly worthy of a double take. The real test will be when NIN and the Prodigy release new albums, and we can then see where (and if) the true players will take their sound, and if Fluke can keep up.

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.

8 Great Women of Electronic

DJ-Kicks: the Compilation that Redefined Electronic Music

"DJ-Kicks is the most important DJ mix series ever." It was Mixmag, the English reference magazine for electronic music that wrote it. It's hard to deny it: since 1995, the German label !K7 has been making flawless albums with more than 60 volumes by entrusting its mixes to leading artists. Pioneer of the genre at a time when this art form was not widely known, the label succeeded in introducing the mix outside of the clubs while popularising electronic music with the general public.
