Nathan Fake's debut album doesn't suddenly change the course of electronic music, as some of his more intense partisans can claim. For a start, the combination of almost childlike winsomeness and often unsettled glitch beats and noise inevitably calls to mind older work by acts like the Boards of Canada. But Drowning in a Sea of Love, drawing on inspiration from both the U.K. and further afield in Europe for its particular hybrid, is a fine listen regardless, a slippery and sprightly combination that further shifts the perceived context of post-techno experimentation from an urban to a "rural" mental geography, for lack of a better term. The cover photograph of a small English village helps set the tone explored further by the sound of the squeeze box on "Stops" and the title of "The Sky Was Pink," suggests a long-stretched-out sunset with its sprawling guitar (or guitar-like) solo. Again, this is not, per se, new -- Ultramarine notably sought a rural prog/techno fusion at its best and sometimes achieved it very well, to name just one act. But Fake's ear for what has already become an established tradition in electronics makes this a new kind of roots music, and his one-person compositions can have the weight of a full band, thus the dramatic cascade and pace of "Grandfathered," which is not far removed from M83 in ways, and is appropriate given his obvious love for shoegaze as filtered through computers (à la Ulrich Schnauss or, somewhat indirectly, Fennesz) elsewhere. The lush melancholia of "Bumblechord" and "You Are Here" are begging to be used on a film soundtrack somewhere if they haven't already, while "Fell" makes for a fine conclusion, drawing together all the album's best elements into a serene climax.

Moby, 30 Years in Search of the Light

Moby is that rarest of artists, a songwriter who has evolved from punk to techno/house to pop, all while continuing to compose ambient music. To mark the release of Reprise, a collection of covers celebrating 30 years of songwriting, Qobuz revisits the career of an artist who has constantly kept the music world off-balance – sometimes even wrong-footing himself – before finally finding his artistic sweet-spot.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.
