On a brisk set with some familiar callbacks to their big beat heyday, the Chemical Brothers offer a decent late-era installment with their ninth album, No Geography. Not as exploratory or insular as their other 2010s output, No Geography is a steady, no-frills mix that focuses more on clever samples than guest vocals and festival-sized body-rocking. Standing out atop the pack, the singles are the best moments on the album. Persistent throbber "Got to Keep On" rides a glittery disco-funk sample (Peter Brown's 1977 gem "Dance With Me") while "We've Got to Try" goes the soul route by swiping the uplifting vocals from the Hallelujah Chorus' "I've Got to Find a Way" and grinding them into a buzzy, robust anthem that recalls the duo's late-'90s best. In a similar vein, "Free Yourself" is all digital dread, taking snippets of Diane di Prima's utopian poetry and twisting them into a robotic instruction manual for liberation through the dancefloor. However, "MAH" ends up being the riotous highlight of No Geography (utilizing a hilariously crotchety El Coco sample from 1977), the closest the Chems come to that "classic" old-school sound. In addition to the singles, Norwegian singer Aurora plays an important role in the album's sound, bringing much-needed emotion to a trio of songs with her ethereal vocals and songwriting. Japanese rapper Nene also guests, dropping a scene-stealing and all-too-brief verse on "Eve of Destruction." While not a low in the Chemical Brothers' catalog by any means, No Geography is also not their strongest or most memorable work to date. It's best not to call it a comeback, just another ample addition to their decades-long discography. ~ Neil Z. Yeung

James Blake has come a long way! Things have changed a lot since the beginning of the decade when he was playing around with post-dubstep beats. Although he’s now one of the most popular producers of mainstream music (having worked with Beyoncé, Frank Ocean, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar and Anderson Paak), the sound of James Blake is still unmistakeable both for the magnificent melancholy of each one of his songs and his ability to express emotion through music. This new album is certainly no exception. It starts off simply with piano arabesques and the vocals from the title track and then come two tracks with Metro Boomin, the most highly rated producer of US hip-hop who is also a songwriter and DJ. Travis Scott on the mic is a hit on Mile High, while Moses Sumney proves why there’s so much hype around his name on Tell Them, which is proof of the saying less is more. Another great track is Barefoot in the Park featuring the Catalan Rosalía, the singer and songwriter behind the hit Malamente. Her vocals are as delicate as ever as she sings in unison with Blake for this lovely chorus with the faint sound of velvety-smooth piano chords playing in the back. But the real highlight of the album is the feature with Andre 3000 from Outkast who bursts in with all guns blazing on Where’s the Catch?, a track with instrumentals that are both heavy and delicate at the same time, a musical oxymoron that only James Blake would be capable of. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

The years fly by. Ten already! Nights Out is a golden nugget of synth pop from 2008 packed full of brooding hits such as Heartbreaker (with its squeaky door sample), A Thing For Me and Radio Ladio. With three synthesizers, a guitar, a nonchalant bass and falsetto choirs, the formula fed into the electro pop wave of the time, placing the group alongside the likes of Hot Chip. While much of the work from this genre remained in rather exclusive circles, Nights Out provoked a groundswell that affected a huge audience, despite its eccentric sound. Mr Mount, who was already an experienced producer and mixer, was at the helm of this record. After releasing Pip Pain (Pay The £5000 You Owe) alone in 2016, he joined forces with Oscar Cash and Gabriel Stebbing for this second album, though Joseph still produced almost all of it himself. It’s a concept album about having a bad time on a night out, with songs that are sometimes gloomy (Night Out), sometimes playful (On Dancefloors), but always brilliant. Metronomy plays with delays, dissonances and ever-so-catchy melodies, which still sound just as good one decade on. And what better an opportunity to revisit this wonderful record than with this anniversary edition which includes unreleased tracks, B-sides and rare recordings. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz
