A leading figure of 90s British electro, James Lavelle is reactivating his UNKLE machine (whose last album Where Did The Night Fall dates back to 2010) with an ambitious and widely protean album. An opus created in collaboration with an eclectic roster of guests. With The Road: Part 1, the founder of the Mo’Wax label produces a kind of real-fake apocalyptic soundtrack, as dark as Cormac McCarthy’s novel, from which it borrows the title. Compositions are at times slow paced and almost baneful, while at other points much livelier, like on the epic Looking For The Rain, carried by the underground baritone voice of the ever mysterious Mark Lanegan and wrapped in grandiose strings and impressive guitars. Liela Moss from the Duke Spirit, Eska, Mink, Elliott Power and Keaton Henson are among the other collaborators of this strange sound object… When compared with Psyence Fiction − UNKLE’s first album from 1998 produced with Thom Yorke of Radiohead, Mike D of the Beastie Boys, Ian Brown of the Stone Roses, Kool G Rap, Badly Drawn Boy and Richard Ashcroft of the Verve − The Road: Part 1 can appear confusing with its blend of trip hop, progressive rock, electro and film music. Confusing, but also undeniably intriguing. Enough to remind us that James Lavelle is a sound producer like no other… © MD/Qobuz

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.

Fabric, a British Institution

The beating heart of the British electronic scene, label/club Fabric made a name for itself with epic nights out and legendary compilations, which have been a regular fixture in the lives of record stores and lovers of quality music since 1999. Here we take a look back at the history of a truly British institution.

Warp, 30 Years of Groundbreaking Music

Warp, the record label which led to the blossoming of some of the most boundary-pushing artists of the electronic music scene, such as Aphex Twin, LFO, Boards of Canada, Autechre, and Squarepusher, now has their catalogue available on Qobuz. It’s the perfect opportunity to revisit the history of Britain’s best-respected independent label.
