A leading figure of 90s British electro, James Lavelle is reactivating his UNKLE machine (whose last album Where Did The Night Fall dates back to 2010) with an ambitious and widely protean album. An opus created in collaboration with an eclectic roster of guests. With The Road: Part 1, the founder of the Mo’Wax label produces a kind of real-fake apocalyptic soundtrack, as dark as Cormac McCarthy’s novel, from which it borrows the title. Compositions are at times slow paced and almost baneful, while at other points much livelier, like on the epic Looking For The Rain, carried by the underground baritone voice of the ever mysterious Mark Lanegan and wrapped in grandiose strings and impressive guitars. Liela Moss from the Duke Spirit, Eska, Mink, Elliott Power and Keaton Henson are among the other collaborators of this strange sound object… When compared with Psyence Fiction − UNKLE’s first album from 1998 produced with Thom Yorke of Radiohead, Mike D of the Beastie Boys, Ian Brown of the Stone Roses, Kool G Rap, Badly Drawn Boy and Richard Ashcroft of the Verve − The Road: Part 1 can appear confusing with its blend of trip hop, progressive rock, electro and film music. Confusing, but also undeniably intriguing. Enough to remind us that James Lavelle is a sound producer like no other… © MD/Qobuz

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.

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.

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.
