Günther and Regina Janssen began releasing albums as Donna Regina in 1992; their style of sweet, gentle synth-pop would prefigure much of the indie electronic music which would surface a decade later, and they would be a natural fit on the Karaoke Kalk label, their home since 1999. Thirteen full-lengths, two compilations, and several singles and EPs after the duo's debut, Karaoke Kalk issued Dis Cover: Donna Regina as Recorded By, featuring a baker's dozen of their songs interpreted by artists like Bertrand Burgalat, Dani Siciliano, and Dean & Britta. Donna Regina's pleasant, uncomplicated tunes have a timeless quality that make them easy to cover, and several artists offer fairly straightforward, enjoyable takes on the songs. Unsurprisingly, the cuts that stray furthest from the originals are by quirky German experimental electronic artists Schlammpeitziger, Console, and Mouse on Mars, who play around with twisted, electronically mangled voices and (in MoM's case) dubby, dislocated beats. A few of the album's tracks, such as the National Jazz Trio of Scotland's "End of September" and Astrobal & Tom Terrien's "Les Claviers de Colours," sound as if they could just have easily appeared on a Saint Etienne tribute disc. The album's most affecting moment is "How Beautiful" (covered here by Chica and the Folder), a wistful, pulsating electro-ballad which begins with the narrator feeling lost in space as her lover is gone, but then she realizes it's just a dream and she's not alone.

Hip-Hop: 8 Legendary Producers

Can we imagine Guru without DJ Premier and De La Soul without Prince Paul? Behind every iconic rapper and cult group, there is a visionary producer who learned from his predecessors and developed his own sound. From the pioneer Marley Marl, who laid the foundations for modern production by showing what could be done with the first samples, to the shooting star J Dilla who, before his death at the age of 32, managed to leave a lasting mark on the genre, not to forget Bomb Squad’s sonic revolution and Dr Dre’s undisputed dominance on the West Coast. Here’s an overview of the studio masters that have ruled the hip-hop world for thirty years.

My Bloody Valentine, the Inner Experience

Thirty years after its release, My Bloody Valentine's "Loveless" remains the craziest album of the 90s. This electric monument in the form of a wall of sound was a product of Kevin Shields' deranged mind. It turned the history of rock upside down and remains a major source of inspiration for many musicians from all walks of life.
