Just as his father had to deal with the career benefits and limitations of being the scion of an icon, Made Kuti is kicking off his international music career in the position of someone who has to both honor the legacy of his father (and grandfather) and simultaneously forge his own path. Wisely, he is not dodging the issue at all with For(e)ward, released simultaneously with his father's new album Stop the Hate and as a deluxe, two-album package called Legacy+. For(e)ward is not only sharing a release date with his father's latest, but also a producer (erstwhile Fela producer Sodi Marciszewer) and album cover artist (Delphine Desane). However, the similarities beyond that are few and far between. Yes, Made is working in an afrobeat heritage, but he is neither explicitly beholden to the style established by his (literal) forebears nor to the more contemporary, hip-hop-indebted permutations recently dominating dancefloors. Instead, Made even explicitly and reverently invokes his grandfather on one song, "Different Streets," about how, as time passes, some things may seem familiar and connected to the past, but there are even more things changing, growing, and evolving into that which will move us into the future. And Made is definitely moving into the future. Rather than utilizing a small army of musicians like his father and grandfather, all of the music here was created by Made himself, and while it shares textural and structural similarities with classic afrobeat—the languid horns, the insistent rhythms, the politicized lyrics—there is a density and complexity to these tunes that is unique. The jagged, interrupted rhythm of album opener "Free Your Mind" does a great job of expectation-setting, making it clear that this won't be another stop on the Kalakuta Express; meanwhile, the scratchy guitar lines and off-kilter drum parts, whispered vocals, synth banks and other unexpected flourishes that make their way into the a packed-full song like "Young Lady" point the way toward many future iterations of highly individualized take on the family tradition. © Jason Ferguson/Qobuz

Baile funk, le rythme contagieux des favelas

Né dans les favelas de Rio à la fin des années 80, le baile funk s’est peu à peu imposé comme le style de musique le plus populaire au Brésil, poussant doucement la samba et la bossa-nova vers les musées. Retour sur l’histoire de ce pur produit carioca qui a fini par trouver sa propre voie vers le mainstream.

Objectif Lune : The Dark Side of the Moon

Album phare dans la discographie de Pink Floyd, “The Dark Side of the Moon” est le fruit d’une élaboration relativement lente qui remonte pratiquement à 1968. “A Saucerful of Secrets” (le morceau phare de l’album éponyme) en est, pour Nick Mason, le point de départ. Derrière, “Ummagumma” laissait s’exprimer des personnalités qu’il allait falloir amalgamer pour décrocher la timbale. Pink Floyd poursuivit sa quête du disque idéal avec “Meddle”, sur lequel le groupe accentuait sa maîtrise du travail du studio, et “Atom Heart Mother”, avant d’atteindre le nirvana avec “The Dark Side of the Moon”, dont la perfection ne s’est jamais érodée.

Trojan : 50 ans à digger le reggae

Une fois passé l’arbre Bob Marley, de nombreux amateurs de reggae ont découvert la profondeur et la diversité de la forêt musicale jamaïcaine à travers les compilations de Trojan Records, devenues pour certains de véritables madeleines de Proust. A l’occasion de ses 50 ans, Qobuz revient sur la trajectoire fluctuante d’un label qui fait partie des références de la réédition reggae, en compagnie de Laurence Cane-Honeysett, curateur de la maison de disques et auteur du livre “The Story of Trojan Records”.
