Run-D.M.C. was the first rap act to produce cohesive, fully realized albums, and LL Cool J was the first to follow in their footsteps. LL was a mere 17 years old when he recorded his classic debut album Radio, a brash, exuberant celebration of booming beats and B-boy attitude that launched not only the longest career in hip-hop, but also Rick Rubin's seminal Def Jam label. Rubin's back-cover credit ("Reduced by Rick Rubin") is an entirely apt description of his bare-bones production style. Radio is just as stripped-down and boisterously aggressive as any Run-D.M.C. album, sometimes even more so; the instrumentation is basically just a cranked-up beatbox, punctuated by DJ scratching. There are occasional brief samples, but few do anything more than emphasize a downbeat. The result is rap at its most skeletal, with a hard-hitting, street-level aggression that perfectly matches LL's cocksure teenage energy. Even the two ballads barely sound like ballads, since they're driven by the same slamming beats. Though they might sound a little squared-off to modern ears, LL's deft lyrics set new standards for MCs at the time; his clever disses and outrageous but playful boasts still hold up poetically. Although even LL himself would go on to more intricate rhyming, it isn't really necessary on such a loud, thumping adrenaline rush of a record. Radio was both an expansion of rap's artistic possibilities and a commercial success (for its time), helping attract new multiracial audiences to the music. While it may take a few listens for modern ears to adjust to the minimalist production, the fact that it hews so closely to rap's basic musical foundation means that it still possesses a surprisingly fresh energy, and isn't nearly as dated as many efforts that followed it (including, ironically, some of LL's own).

Le trip hop en 10 albums

A l’aube des années 90, la vague trip hop submerge la Grande-Bretagne avec une électro influencée par la musique jamaïcaine et les beats rap. Rythmiques chloroformées et ambiances oppressantes, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba et quelques autres inventent une sorte de soul music sombre, futuriste et parfois très cinématographique. Coup de zoom en 10 albums sur un genre aux frontières floues mais à l’influence nette.

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.

L'âge d'or du rap existe-t-il ?

Du milieu des années 80 à celui des années 90, le hip-hop a vécu une révolution artistique sans précédent. Une décennie d’une richesse alors inédite où brillera le talent de Public Enemy, De La Soul, N.W.A, Eric B & Rakim, A Tribe Called Quest et bien d’autres. Alors, le rap c'était mieux avant ?
