It isn't without reason that Red Mecca is often referred to as one of Cabaret Voltaire's most cohesive and brilliant records. There are tangible bumpers (the record is buttressed by squealing/wheezing interpretations of Henry Mancini's music for Orson Welles' Touch of Evil), so by that aspect there's a tangible center. And taken as a whole, the record contains all the characteristics that have made the Sheffield group such an influential entity when it comes to electronic music of the untethered, experimental variety that isn't afraid to shake its tail a little. Unlike a fair portion of CV's studio output, Red Mecca features no failed experiments or anything that could be merely cast off as "interesting." It's a taught, dense, horrific slab lacking a lull. Dashes of Richard H. Kirk's synthesizer are welded to Chris Watson's tape effects for singed lashes of white noise, best heard on the lurching "Sly Doubt" and the jolting "Spread the Virus." Throughout, Mallinder's sinister jibber jabbering punctuates the high-pitched menace. What he's ranting about is rarely obvious, as the clarity of his voice is often obstructed by the tape effects, synth work, and other random whip-cracks (Watson's periodic surges of organ are another treat). Judging from his irritated tone, odds are the lyrics have little to do with bunnies jumping over dandelions or anything nearing pleasant -- it's that lack of definition that makes things all the more unsettling. Several tunes have a thick rhythmic drive. The instrumental "Landslide" is painfully short at two minutes, with a bopping machine beat and barely perceptible vocal samples that dart between the left and right channels. A grainy programmed rhythm and Kirk's sickly guitar manglings dominate the sleazy "Split Second Feeling." Sick, searing, engrossing. Along with 2X45 and The Living Legends, this is their best offering. ~ Andy Kellman

Jean-Michel Jarre, 50 anni di musica elettronica

Per festeggiare i suoi 50 anni di carriera, Jean-Michel Jarre pubblica l’edificante Planet Jarre, una compilation di circa quaranta brani che mette in luce la traiettoria tracciata dal pioniere della musica elettronica. L’occasione per tornare su cinque decenni in cui il francese ci ha svelato tutti i lati della sua personalità: artista, scienziato pazzo, precursore, amante dei colpi di scena, militante e infine paladino degli autori contro i giganti del Web.

Fabric, un’istituzione inglese

Dal 1999, il Fabric è il cuore pulsante della scena elettronica britannica. Le sue compilation Fabric e FabricLive scandiscono il ritmo della vita dei negozianti di dischi e degli appassionati di musica di qualità, mentre il club fa vibrare i suoi assidui frequentatori ogni fine settimana grazie a una programmazione 5 stelle. Primo piano sulla storia di un’istituzione inglese.

Neoclassica: un nuovo mondo ai confini dell’elettronica e della classica

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama… Da qualche anno tutti questi nomi alla moda sono stati raggruppati sotto la vasta ed eterogenea etichetta “neoclassica”. A dire il vero, questo “panorama” somiglia piuttosto ad una banda eterogenea di artisti indagatori, che mescolano strumenti classici e produzione elettronica – in connessione cosciente con i pionieri del minimalismo americano – che deliziano i sensi ed aprono nuove prospettive da entrambi i lati del loro spettro musicale.
