Massive Attack's sophomore effort could never be as stunning as Blue Lines, and a slight drop in production and songwriting quality made the comparisons easy. Still, from the first two songs Protection sounds worthy of their debut. The opening title track is pure excellence, with melancholy keyboards, throbbing acid lines, and fragmented beats perfectly complementing the transcendent vocals of Tracey Thorn (an inspired choice to replace the departed Shara Nelson as their muse). Tricky, another soon-to-be-solo performer, makes his breakout on this record, with blunted performances on "Karmacoma," another highlight, as well as "Eurochild." But even though the production is just as intriguing as on Blue Lines, there's a bit lacking here -- Massive Attack doesn't summon quite the emotional power they did previously. Guest Craig Armstrong's piano work on the aimless tracks "Weather Storm" and "Heat Miser" leans uncomfortably close to Muzak, and his arrangement and conducting for "Sly" isn't much better (vocals by Nicolette save the track somewhat). Though it's still miles ahead of the growing raft of trip-hop making the rounds in the mid-'90s, Protection is rather a disappointment. ~ John Bush

DJ-Kicks story

«DJ-Kicks è la serie più importante di DJ mix di tutti i tempi.» A scriverlo è Mixmag, il magazine di riferimento per la musica elettronica in Inghilterra. Difficile dargli torto: dal 1995, l’etichetta tedesca !K7 ha pubblicato più di 60 volumi impeccabili affidandone i mix a artisti fondamentali. Pioniere del genere in un’epoca in cui questo formato era ancora poco diffuso, l’etichetta è riuscita a pubblicare il mix dei club volgarizzando la musica elettronica presso il grande pubblico.

Trap: istruzioni per l'uso

Dove inizia e dove finisce il trap? Ovvero, come ha fatto un sottogenere del rap, molto di nicchia, a uscire dagli Stati Uniti del sud e a cambiare al punto di diffondersi sulla scena pop mondiale fino quasi a confondersi con lei? Storia e controversie.

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.
