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

Fabric, a British Institution

The beating heart of the British electronic scene, label/club Fabric made a name for itself with epic nights out and legendary compilations, which have been a regular fixture in the lives of record stores and lovers of quality music since 1999. Here we take a look back at the history of a truly British institution.

Tango: Sounds of the Río de la Plata

Rooted in dance and eventually becoming its very own artistic movement, the history of tango is an epic one; and its future truly looks limitless. A musical genre with hybrid origins, it remains one of the most incredible creations to come out of Río de la Plata. “It’s the only thing we don’t ask Europe for its opinion on,” wrote Argentina’s Macedonio Fernández, the man that young Jorge Luis Borges admired “to the point of devout and passionate plagiarism.” A number of coincidences in the late 19th century gave rise to this style of music. As musicologist Carlos Vega said: "no one really tried to create tango." And yet, here it is; complete with its own traditions and innovations, as well as its own golden age, ill-fated artists, myths and rituals.
