Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars are two of the very best. By joining forces as the Silk Sonic duo, they have created something greater than the sum of its parts. Their first single together, Leave The Door Open, was a big hit in March 2021, heralding the album which the pair now unveil: An Evening With Silk Sonic. Our rascally pair throw out a series of tributes to the great standards of Black music in the tradition of Soul Train, and act out a rather knowing kind of sensuality, which sometimes borders on pastiche- and it is a delight. Their broad musical palette allows them to summon the energy of Tower of Power on 777, the frantic breakbeats of the JBs on Silk Sonic Intro or the Temptations-influenced melodies on Smokin’ Out The Window. But take note: this album is no revival. In its postures, sound and arrangements, it is clearly modern, more of a hat-tip than a flashback. The proof is in the track After Last Night, on which the pair mingle generations by inviting the big beast Bootsy Collins as well as the icon of a new generation of bass players: Thundercat. And at the end of the day, this is a track that is more oriented towards late 1990s RnB than towards traditional soul. But all the same: is there anything Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars can't do? © Brice Miclet/Qobuz

Hip-Hop: 8 Legendary Producers

Can we imagine Guru without DJ Premier and De La Soul without Prince Paul? Behind every iconic rapper and cult group, there is a visionary producer who learned from his predecessors and developed his own sound. From the pioneer Marley Marl, who laid the foundations for modern production by showing what could be done with the first samples, to the shooting star J Dilla who, before his death at the age of 32, managed to leave a lasting mark on the genre, not to forget Bomb Squad’s sonic revolution and Dr Dre’s undisputed dominance on the West Coast. Here’s an overview of the studio masters that have ruled the hip-hop world for thirty years.

Herbie Hancock - Hunt for the Funk

Along with his former employer Miles Davis, pianist Herbie Hancock is the other founding father of jazz-fusion. In 1973, his album "Head Hunters" laid down the Holy Scriptures of the most successful union of jazz improvisation and funk psychedelic trance. Afros and platform boots all around!

Prog Rock in 10 Albums

Influence is a shapeless thing, moving and rearranging based on sounds from the past and how they align with sounds from the present. In the case of progressive rock, a genre relocated from the pop charts to sheet music stands and art rock-favored stereos over the past four decades, influence has shifted in a similar way—later records that expanded the lexicon have lapped previous records with the incorporation of new styles, cultures and their corresponding sounds. Prog may not be burning up the rock charts, but you can see the everlasting influence of the genre in bands ranging from Tool to Kanye West and beyond. With that said, here are ten crucial progressive rock releases for 2021 and beyond.
