It has been an uphill battle for the Odd Future’s great leader. He was once one of the rising stars of the underground rap scene only to be wiped out by a series of setbacks. Tyler came back with a bang, demonstrating his passion for beautiful orchestration on the excellent Flower Boy released in the summer of 2017. The Flowerboy revealed a diversified pallet of charged soul and R&B that was conscientious and terribly sensitive, already beginning to move away from the constraints of rap. Tyler favored detail over bursts of witty remarks like on Cherry Bomb. It was a divergent move that the Angelino had already taken with the erratic Goblin. While it follows Flower Boy musically in terms of melody (EARFQUAKE, A BOY IS A GUN), IGOR is unique and proves that if Tyler had stumbled upon obstacles in the past, it’s because his genius was badly contained rather than managed.


While Flower Boy maintained the beautiful vestiges of the Goblin era, IGOR is a more radical departure. Do not be fooled, IGOR is not a rap album. No, IGOR blurs the lines between rap, electro, soul and R&B with a fantastic layering of synthesizers and tasteful samples (Head West, Bibi Mascel, Run DMC, Ponderosa Twins Plus One…). There is still significant influence from Pharrell Williams (I THINK) who can be found on the production of ARE WE STILL FRIENDS?. When it comes to lyrics, Tyler discusses a range of lost lovers further raising the question of his sexual ambiguity. IGOR features many of Tyler usual collaborators: Kali Uchis, King Krule, Frank Ocean, A$AP Rocky and Playboi Carti. An absolute classic. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

An Instruction Manual for Trap Music

Where does trap music start and end? How has the gritty sub-genre of rap from the southern states of the US mutated into pop? Historical and controversial.

How reggae conquered American Pop

Not since the days of Bob Marley has Reggae enjoyed such a high profile. For three years, hits by the stars of North American pop have taken on a distinctly Jamaican flavour. From Beyoncé to Rihanna, via Drake or Justin Bieber, more and more pop artists have taken to superimposing their voice over dancehall tracks. Dancehall, the "club" version of reggae, was popularised in the mid-1980s by the legendary producer King Jammy with Sleng Teng, the first electronic reggae track in history. Let's take a look at this velvet coup.

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…
