Peter Kember's musical life in Spaceman 3, Spectrum and E.A.R. (as well as his production work with MGMT, Panda Bear and Beach House), has always been about two things: influences and sound. Kember is still under the thrall of the Velvets, who colored his lines of Spaceman 3, but the vocal inspiration on All Things Being Equal—the first solo album released under his nom de musique in thirty years—is mined, he says, from Sam Cooke and the Everly Brothers.

Recorded in 2015, these electronic odysseys are "regenerative stories told back and forward," focused on "memory, space, consumerism, consciousness—everything." This is consummate, layered, carefully built synth rock, much of it at ballad-like tempos, permeated by deep-toned, at times talky vocals that ponder the zen of ethical living and a newfound sense of ecological alarm. Here in a chugging, almost soothing electronic jam, "Things Like This (A Little Bit Deeper)," he chants "Take me somewhere (A little bit deeper)/I don't mind if (The climb is steeper)."

The sound of All Things Being Equal—cluttered, dynamically driven, and very Eno-esque in spots—is grounded in the extensive use of such historic analog synth landmarks as the Buchla Music Easel, Modem Dubreq Stylophone S2 and his longtime favorite, the EMS Synthi AKS (once used on Dark Side of the Moon). All this old school firepower makes the album's most amiable groove, "The Way That You Live," with a chorus of "Make it about the way that you live, make it about the love that you give," a happy, memory-generating jolt for those Spaceman 3 fans still longing for the reunion that will never happen. © Robert Baird/Qobuz

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.

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.

The One Thousand and One Eastern Voices

From the call of the muezzin to the cries of the Palestinian underground, the pre-Islamic music and the Egyptian chaabi electro, let’s go back to the voices that feed the infinite musical diversity of the Arab world.
