Since bursting onto the grime scene in 2004, 25-year-old East London MC Kano has produced records with the likes of Mike Skinner, Damon Albarn, and Craig David, and provided guest appearances on albums by Chase & Status, Gorillaz, and Shy FX. His fourth studio release, Method to the Maadness, continues his collaborative tendencies, hooking him up with the likes of quirky synth pop outfit Hot Chip, Jamaican dancehall artist Vybz Kartel, and the Godfather of Grime, Wiley, on an eclectic 13 tracks, which Kano argues are his most experimental to date. Opening tracks "2 Left: Topic of Discussion," a formulaic blend of languid beats, Fisher-Price production, and jarring Lil Wayne-esque elongated vocals, and the ubiquitous urban electro sounds of "Get Wild," suggest otherwise. But once the brief radio phone-in skit, "iPod Generation," and the generic, guitar-laced "Maad" are out of the way, Method to the Maadness begins to live up to its creator's claims. "Spaceship" is a cautionary tale on the merits of fame set against a backdrop of brooding dubstep rhythms and hypnotic kaleidoscopic glockenspiels, the Damon Albarn-produced "Bassment" is a head-nodding slice of authentic, minimal '80s-style hip-hop reminiscent of seminal rap pioneer Afrika Bambaataa, while closing track "Dark Days" is an introspective, ambient electronica epic featuring a soaring Tears for Fears-style new wave chorus. Best of all is the defiant "Upside," which brilliantly fuses Kano's frenetic lyrical delivery with old-school brass production and Michelle Breeze's vulnerable but engaging vocals. The teaming up with Hot Chip, "All + All Together," which must have looked like a potential standout on paper is, in reality, a rather disappointingly pedestrian attempt at electro-dancehall, while the witty lyricism of the Ghetts-featuring "Lady Killer" can't mask its irritating, high-pitched Batman-theme-styled instrumentation. Contrary to what its title suggests, Method to the Maadness' sprawling inconsistencies appear to highlight the complete lack of method in his madness, but apart from the predictable opening third of the disc, it's a highly inventive effort which refuses to compromise his genre-straddling sensibilities. ~ Jon O'Brien

Il reggae alla conquista del pop americano

Il reggae non era mai stato così in vista dai tempi di Bob Marley. Negli ultimi tre anni, le hit delle pop star americane si sono arricchite di sapori giamaicani. Da Beyonce a Rihanna, passando per Drake o Justin Bieber, sono sempre di più i cantanti che usano accompagnamenti e musiche dancehall, la versione «elegante» del reggae, resa popolare dal leggendario produttore King Jammy alla metà degli anni 80 con lo Sleng Teng, il primo reggae elettronico della storia. Una conquista praticata con guanti di velluto: ecco com’è andata.

Nas, le piccole fratture ordinarie di un genio del rap

A vent’anni Nas è diventato una leggenda. Dalla sua prima prova, questo rapper originario di Queensbridge, un quartiere di New York, è diventato tutto: il tecnico più bravo, il narratore convincente, il salvatore. E dopo, cos’è successo? Come evolversi, superarsi, quando i media ti considerano l’eletto? Come invecchiare in una musica da giovani, quando la tua prima opera è l’opera definitiva?

Kamasi Washington, il sax degli Angeli

Dopo un triplo album che lo ha piazzato in cima alle classifiche, eccolo di ritorno con un doppio! Kamasi Washington intriga e affascina non solo i patiti di jazz… Al fianco di Kendrick Lamar e Snoop Dogg, ma soprattutto a capo del collettivo West Coast Get Down, il carismatico sassofonista di Los Angeles porta una ventata di follia sulla scena jazz contemporanea.
