The debut album from tried-and-true members of the Gang Starr Foundation, Lil' Dap and Melachi the Nutcracker, illustrates the benefits of loyalty in the rap game. After paying their dues and appearing on prior Gang Starr projects such as Daily Operation and Hard to Earn, they earned the right to record their own LP, proudly waving the Gang Starr flag. As a registered battalion under the command of executive producers Guru and DJ Premier (founders of Gang Starr), the talented duo reaped the benefits of membership. The virtuoso DJ Premier provides a rugged and rich musical canvas for the gravel-throated lisp of Lil' Dap and the straight-razor sharp flow of Melachi. Both MCs pull no punches; their lyrics and deliveries are clear, concise, and to the point. While their lyrical content is profound in its simplicity, Group Home is never simple. Livin' Proof exemplifies the harsh realities of coming up in the concrete jungle and in the rap industry. Tracks like "Suspended in Time," "Serious Rap Shit," and the title cut portray the perilous struggle that faces every MC trying to rhyme and reason his way out of his constrictions. Track after track Premier astounds with his unpredictable drum sequences embellished by entrancing hints of piano, strings and horns that seem to dance in and out of the compositions. The results are nothing short of rhythmic masterpieces. Many cuts are preceded or interrupted by short instrumental interludes that leave the listener longing for more. Livin' Proof should not be reduced to a pure showcase for Premier; however, the deadpan lyrics of Lil' Dap and Melachi rise to the level of their maestro to create a fairly fantastic debut.

Kamasi Washington, le sax des Anges

Un triple album l’a placé au sommet en 2015 (“The Eric”), et il est revenu avec un double en 2018, le tout aussi réussi “Heaven and Earth” ! Kamasi Washington intrigue et charme par-delà la jazzosphère. Aux côtés de Kendrick Lamar et Snoop Dogg mais surtout à la tête du collectif West Coast Get Down, le charismatique saxophoniste de Los Angeles souffle un vent de folie sur la scène jazz contemporaine.

DJ-Kicks : l’histoire de la compilation qui a redéfini la musique électronique

« DJ-Kicks est la plus importante série de DJ mix de tous les temps. » C’est Mixmag, le magazine de référence de la musique électronique en Angleterre, qui l’écrit. Difficile de lui donner tort : depuis 1995, le label allemand !K7 fait un sans-faute sur plus de 60 volumes en confiant ses mix à des artistes incontournables. Pionnier du genre à une époque où le format ne courait pas les rues, le label a réussi à sortir le mix des clubs tout en vulgarisant la musique électronique auprès du grand public.

Run The Jewels, la rage contre la machine

Formé, à l'approche de la quarantaine, par Killer Mike – un rappeur noir d'Atlanta proche d'OutKast, versé dans le street rap baraqué – et El-P, un b-boy blanc de Brooklyn devenu le parangon du rap expérimental, Run The Jewels aurait pu s'ajouter à la longue liste des castings ratés de l'histoire du hip-hop. À l'inverse, le duo est devenu une institution, qui ravit les foules et réveille les consciences. Alors que sort “RTJ4”, son album le plus politique et dévastateur, retour sur les trajectoires croisées d'El-P et Killer Mike.
