On her 2018 debut EP, Cruel Practice, NUXXE co-founder Shygirl delivered brash, sexually charged lyrics in her distinctive no-nonsense monotone over a jarring hybrid of grime, post-industrial hip-hop, and U.K. garage produced by Sega Bodega and Dinamarca. After releasing additional singles like the astounding "BB" and making key appearances on albums by Georgia, Zebra Katz, and Arca, she moved to French label Because Music with her second EP, ALIAS, which sports production by Sega Bodega, SOPHIE, Kai Whiston, Happa, and Karma Kid. While less abrasive than Cruel Practice, the equally impressive follow-up maintains the dark, provocative edge of her previous work. She taunts "Why ride with the devil when I could give you hell?" on the trap-ish "TWELVE," and is extremely upfront with her sexual commands on tracks like "SLIME" and "LENG." The standouts are the most club-friendly tracks Shygirl has released to date. "FREAK" starts out slow and disconcertingly woozy, then picks up with a hard-charging industrial techno beat, matching the speedy wit of her rhymes. "TASTY" is a surprisingly ecstatic house track, with Shygirl raising her voice more than usual and demanding to be treated right over ravey pianos and choppy breakbeats. The more hypnotic "SIREN" alludes to Y2K-era pop-trance, meshing perfectly with the song's lyrics about money, power, and fast cars.

In your panoramas...
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.

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.

New Order: From Darkness to Dance-floor

How does one Mancunian group move from perhaps the gloomiest band of the punk era to a master of the dance-floor? In the early eighties, straight out of Joy Division’s ashes, New Order marked one of the first successful unions of rock’n’roll and dance music. A perfect soundtrack for a morose, Thatcherite England.
