The simple problem with Kylie the Queen of Disco's first remix collection is not that it's bad, because it isn't. It's that it could -- and should -- be better. For example, take the opening track, the genius 2002 mash-up "Can't Get Blue Monday Out of My Head." It's an absolutely wonderful combination of two great songs -- but who among Kylie's fans doesn't already own this? It's followed by the "Death Metal Disco Scene" mix of "In My Arms," one of only two songs appearing here twice ("Can't Get You" being the other). Unfortunately, DMDS' take is incredibly dull and repetitive, heavy on the looping and not much else. (Sebastien Leger's mix, on the other hand, is attractively itchy, and builds nicely to some tech-ish fun.) By and large, Boombox's biggest shortfall is that many of the mixes chosen just aren't that hot. "Love at First Sight" is represented by the "Kid Creme Vocal Dub," which includes almost none of Kylie's vocal. Sure, it's a dub, but come on -- this album's big draw is supposed to be Kylie! This isn't to say there's nothing good here: Chemical Brothers' marvelous, widescreen take on "Slow" still conquers, and Fischerspooner turn Kylie multi-orgasmic on a "Come into My World" remix that bears a bit of their own "Emerge" in its DNA. Overall, however, Boombox is a sadly prime example of a colossally missed opportunity.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

The Pioneers of Rock’n’Roll

Rock’n’roll isn’t dead. But you can count the pioneers of the genre who are still alive on two fingers: Jerry Lee Lewis and Wanda Jackson. They’re 84 and 82. Lewis was a wild rocker signed with Sun Records who made history by igniting his instrument and transforming church music, country and boogie-woogie into wicked rock'n'roll. Jackson was a country singer who had a brilliant career alongside Elvis. Going from Little Richard to Chuck Berry, not forgetting Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Bo Diddley, Bill Haley, Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and Hank Williams, Qobuz pays tribute to the precursors of rock.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
