Ishmael Butler starts the first proper song on the fifth Shabazz Palaces album with wanderlust whispers reminiscent of Model 500's "Night Drive." The MC also echoes the early techno classic's theme of travel facilitated by nature as much as technological advancements, eagerly "hurtling through space" with moonlight as his conductor. The live-sounding retro-futuristic fusion accompanying him -- humming low end, simmering snares, and fleshy handclaps, seemingly guided by early-'70s Miles Davis sessions -- is a greater indication of what follows. Compared to SP's conceptual third and fourth LPs, which arrived together in 2017, The Don of Diamond Dreams is unified by its funkier and humanized sonics more than its lyrics. Slithering from track to track with verses chock-full of elevated non sequiturs, Butler still tends to come across as a sage, somewhat alien wordsmith, but he projects more warmth than before. Most conspicuously, affection is abundant. It's all through the burbling bass and whipping synthesizers of "Bad Bitch Walking," where the male gaze is twisted with sly remarks like "She was looking like...a genius" and an appearance from the smooth-as-ever Stas THEE Boss. On a more personal level for Butler, there's the touching "Thanking the Girls," in which he honors his wife and daughter with a slight lilt in his voice, likely grinning as he proclaims "I'm just so happy when both the girls close to me." Antagonism is limited, with Butler still at his wryest and most biting when handheld devices are in the frame ("You're a scroller, I'm an explorer"). A couple of the lengthier tracks communicate more with their titles than their music. They're at least counteracted with some of the wittiest, weirdest, and somehow most direct songs in the Shabazz Palaces catalog. Most dizzying is the John Carpenter/Junie Morrison horror-funk fantasy "Chocolate Souffle," in which Butler enumerates his self-acquired advantages, references Morris Day and Maurice Chevalier, and ices his rival with "You a data rat, I'm a black slang acrobat."

Warp, 30 anni d'avanguardia elettronica

Warp, l'etichetta discografica che ha contribuito alla nascita di alcuni tra gli artisti che hanno ampliato maggiormente i confini della scena musicale elettronica - come Aphex Twin, LFO, Boards of Canada, Autechre e Squarepusher - ha ora il suo catalogo disponibile su Qobuz, occasione perfetta per rivisitare la storia di questa etichetta indipendente britannica.

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.

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.
