The crisply cut samples; the deep, laid-back voice; the English accent and false monotony... No doubt about it, this is Loyle Carner. With his third album, titled hugo, the London rapper has stuck with the aesthetic that threw him into stardom in 2017. Though the water might seem still, watch out: this album makes a strong political statement. Especially the track ‘Blood on My Nikes’, which deals with social violence and settling scores, referencing the knife attacks that have plagued the English suburbs ever since the beginning of the 2010s. Loyle Carner plainly explains that the problem is global; that government inaction and implicit segregation are responsible for the situation. At times, it almost feels as if the album is resurrecting Guru on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean (‘Georgetown’). Loyle Carner’s rap is fierce, gently grabbing the listener by the collar, and the album has been crafted with disconcerting closeness and intimacy. He’s familiar with the city at night and restores the mood that makes London rap so special, just like Jeshi does. He’s one of the masters of this sound; a responsibility he’s more than happy to assume. © Brice Miclet/Qobuz

The New British Jazz Scene in 10 Albums

Hard bop, hip hop, free jazz, groove, electro, calypso, experimental or Caribbean: the key players of the new British jazz scene are open to everything. They know their classics like the back of their hands though they certainly don’t hold back from exploring all kinds of genres, making for a wonderfully eclectic sound. Here we look back over ten essential albums.

Kendrick Lamar, an Autopsy of a Phenom

He is revered both by the mainstream and the underground. And rarely a rapper has gathered such unanimous support. But how did Kendrick Lamar manage to roll over the competition to such an extent? And his dominance could last for quite some time…

DJ-Kicks: the Compilation that Redefined Electronic Music

"DJ-Kicks is the most important DJ mix series ever." It was Mixmag, the English reference magazine for electronic music that wrote it. It's hard to deny it: since 1995, the German label !K7 has been making flawless albums with more than 60 volumes by entrusting its mixes to leading artists. Pioneer of the genre at a time when this art form was not widely known, the label succeeded in introducing the mix outside of the clubs while popularising electronic music with the general public.
