At first repulsive and overbrewed, Animal Magic slowly takes shape as a solid debut of narcoleptic downtempo. Which isn't too surprising: Bonobo's Simon Green is known for making friends with intelligent electronic adventurers Mr. Scruff and Amon Tobin, and choosing a moniker after a species of chimpanzee Chris Morris made famous. In fact, his fusion of encouraging trip-hop, helium voices, and sitars probably isn't the quickest way to get you humming in the bath. But intimation is rarely used in pop music, and when it's put up against an uncharacteristically emotional pallor ("Kota," "Sugar Rhyme"), you're rewarded for your patience. If you hear Lionrock's hypnogogic avant-splatter or the solar affection of Air, that's because Green shares their use of textural organics in the middle of low-key electronic mood music. Although the result is not as colorful as Lemon Jelly, or as amusing as Bent, there's a balance that's just as effective, using the power of suggestion instead of cleverness to avoid the pitfalls of so much half-realized, barely aware chill-out that's always been in the market ironically fighting so fiercely for attention.

Fabric, A British Institution

Since 1999, Fabric has been the heart and soul of the British electronic scene. Its Fabric and FabricLive compilation CD’s are imperative to the lives of record sellers and quality music lovers, while the club thrills clubbers every weekend with a 5-star program. Let’s dive into the history of a British institution.

Daft Punk, Curtain Call

Eight years after Random Access Memories transcended the artistic concept that had begun with Homework eighteen years earlier, Daft Punk have brought things to a halt. It is as if to say that no further reinvention was possible after their last album, which was the culmination of a career that paid tribute to the pop culture of the 1970s and 1980s.

Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Atlantic

Between 1967 and 1979, Aretha Franklin recorded her greatest albums for the label Atlantic. It was in these albums that she blended the gospel from her childhood with rhythm’n’blues and ultimately re-defined the boundaries of modern soul music.
