"Keep calm and relax" is what Jon Hopkins seems to have been telling us through his last few records. After the Meditations seriesbased on the sound of a Tibetan singing bowl, and the EP Piano Versions (both released in 2020), here he is again with an album that he says is “not ambient, classical or drone but has elements of all three”. The title says it all: Music for Psychedelic Therapy is a record for treating your psyche. And the artist accompanies it with listening tips: “For me it’s a place as much as it is a sound. It works for the sober mind, but takes on a new dimension entirely when brought into a psychedelic ceremony.”

The place in question is a cave in Ecuador called La Cueva de los Tayos, which has become legendary because of its perfectly polished megaliths and mysterious inscriptions. It was in these mystical tunnels that the idea for the album took shape in 2018. Jon Hopkins devotes a soberly titled triptych to them, Tayos Caves, Ecuador, which, over a tight 20 minutes, takes wing amid pouring rain and birdsong, and sets down again in a forest of drones. But the highlight of the piece is surely Sit Around the Fire, an eight-minute meditation guided by the famous American guru Ram Dass, Timothy Leary's travelling companion. This track was composed in collaboration with Portland producer East Forest, author of the 2019 audio guide Music for Mushrooms, who also recorded Ram Dass in Hawaii before his death in 2019. Could this mark a new path for the former student of the Royal College of Music in London? © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Erased Tapes, a Not-so-classic Label

Since its birth in 2007, Erased Tapes has made a name for itself as one of the most innovative labels of the last 15 years and enjoyed great commercial success. Although some fail to see past its neoclassical shopfront (Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds), the London-based label explores the outer limits of ambient, electronica and experimental with a catalogue that's smoothly curated by the German Robert Raths. Qobuz takes a closer look.

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.
