Two years after a promising first album, Tides in 2020, brothers Nick and Jordan Smart are back with their trademark dreamy music that lies somewhere between ambient, electronica and neo-classical. This second release shows a particularly careful sense of balance between acoustic instruments (Nick’s piano, Jordan’s sax and clarinet) and electronic sounds created on analogue synthesisers, which brings a rather unique touch. This record sounds as if it’s been submerged under a huge wave—though a warm, gentle one. The duo, who make up two thirds of the British jazz band Mammal Hands (alongside drummer Jesse Barrett), have released this effortless album with Gondwana (GoGo Penguin and Portico Quartet’s label). Let yourself be carried away by Sunda Arc’s musical current. Enjoy the journey as you travel from the incredible opening track, ‘Distant Siren’, which sounds like a distant rave in the English countryside, through to more suspenseful moments on ‘Forgotten Dream’, which features two simple and haunting piano chords. See also some Stranger Things vibes on ‘Night Lands’ and electronic ballads like ‘Endless Fields’. This is an incredible electronic-acoustic album. © 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.

Warp, 30 Years of Groundbreaking Music

Warp, the record label which led to the blossoming of some of the most boundary-pushing artists of the electronic music scene, such as Aphex Twin, LFO, Boards of Canada, Autechre, and Squarepusher, now has their catalogue available on Qobuz. It’s the perfect opportunity to revisit the history of Britain’s best-respected independent label.

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.
