This two-CD set is a meditative concept piece inspired by Mt. Kailas, a pyramid-shaped mountain in Western Tibet that's considered holy to the area's Hindus, Buddhists, and Bons (the old religion of Tibet). With lengthy tracks boasting a heavy world music influence, composer/multi-instrumentalist David Parsons' ambient soundscapes are meant to capture a sonic "parikrama," the circumambulation of the mountain that spiritual pilgrims make over the course of three to four days, prostrating themselves at every step. This is deeply contemplative, transcendental music that may prove a tough listen for those with short attention spans, but for those interested in meditation and spiritual contemplation, Parikrama can provide a hypnotic, otherworldly listening experience.

Jean-Michel Jarre, 50 Years of Electronic Music

Qobuz looks back over the five decades during which the Frenchman expressed himself as an artist, a mad scientist, a visionary, a sucker for record breaking spectacles, an activist and now the torchbearer for artists struggling for fairer pay online.

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.

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.
