Following Ellen Allien's back-to-basics club album Nost as well as a pair of commanding singles ("Take a Stand," "UFO"), the BPitch Control founder released Alientronic, which continues in much the same direction but ventures a bit further out of orbit. Much shorter than Nost, Alientronic is a set of focused interstellar voyages which convey a sense of mystery while delivering the requisite amount of club energy. "Empathy" begins the album with its most extraterrestrial soundscape; astral arpeggios float throughout the galaxy while a soft, sporadic pulse gradually forms. Once we're settled into this strange but inviting spot in the universe, "MDMA" introduces the propulsive dance beats, which are generally broken rather than steady. Subsequent tracks are more direct and slamming, producing a slightly more paranoid atmosphere. "Bowie in Harmony" is filled with furious thumping kick drums and frantic acid synth patterns, with Allien's shadowy vocals murmuring something about David Bowie off in the distance. As with Nost, Allien's vocals help establish the mood of the tracks, but there's no proper lyrical song structures; she seems to have left her indie-crossover days behind. Following the tense, misleadingly titled "Electronic Joy," "Exit to Humanity" is the album's most arresting moment, with suspenseful synths set to a knocking garage-like beat, and a chilling voice spelling out doom for the human race. Following the early-trance flashback "Free Society," "Stimulation" is a riveting plunge into pure electro, ending Allien's most solid full-length since the mid-2000s on a high note. ~ Paul Simpson

Jean-Michel Jarre, 50 Years of Electronic Music

To celebrate his 50-year-long career, Jean-Michel Jarre has released the edifying compilation Planet Jarre, a collection of 41 tracks that highlight the path set by the pioneer of electronic music. It’s a wonderful opportunity to look 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.

Laurent Garnier, the fight for techno

As he recently celebrated the 30th year of his career in October 2017 at the Rex Club in Paris, Qobuz seized this opportunity to dive into the musical journey of Laurent Garnier, a pioneer of the French electronic scene who spent three decades fighting for the recognition of a music genre that had been ostracized by the media and institutions. Let’s take a look at this uphill battle for techno.

Fabric, A British Institution

Since 1999, Fabric has been the heart and soul of the British electronic scene. Its Fabric and FabricLive compilation CD’s are imperative to the lives of record sellers and quality music lovers, while the club thrills clubbers every weekend with a 5-star program. Let’s dive into the history of a British institution.
