After the release of his album Elaenia in 2015, Sam Shepherd was dubbed one of Britain’s most talented young producers. He then decided to set off on tour for a good while to explore the world of jazz, bringing an entire band with him. After this, rather out of the blue, he ended up performing live each night as the opening act on The xx’s 2017 tour. Having to improvise all alone with a Buchla synth in front of 20,000 people for an hour and a half makes you rethink things. “I thought what I’d come out with would be really melodic and slow-building, but what I ended up playing was some of the most obtuse and aggressive music I’ve ever made. It was liberating”.
And that’s exactly what comes cross on the album – which, in a nutshell, is a display of creativity, hybridization and open-mindedness. The gifted English electronic musician mixes 2 step jazz and electronica on the simply divine Last Bloom, dabbles in drum ‘n’ bass on Anasickmodular and nods towards UK bass on LesAlpx. His competition has some catching up to do. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Kraftwerk, 50 Years Ahead of Their Time

Kraftwerk, the most influential electronic music group in history, have always been ahead of their time. Ahead of technology, composition, and on stage performances, the Germans proved to the public that robots were also capable of emotions and paved the way for techno, new wave and even hip-hop.

Mason Bates' weird and wonderful electronic symphonies

What do you mean, you haven’t heard about Mason Bates (yet)? He is one of the hottest names on the North-American music scene. Born in 1977, Bates is a symphonic and lyrical composer as well as an electro DJ (under the alias DJ Masonic) – two completely opposing genres which he takes great delight in mixing. Around half of his symphonic and lyrical work consists, in one way or another, of electronic sounds. The majority of these sounds are “every day sounds”, which are prerecorded and later put into a score. On the release date of his brilliant opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz interviewed this extraordinary person.
