In 1998, at barely 20 years old, Kieran Hebden was already an extremely active musician. He had just signed to Output Records, Trevor Jackson’s label, with Fridge, the post-rock trio obsessed with sampling led by himself, Adem Ilhan and Sam Jeffers. He then went solo with the release of Thirtysixtwentyfive on Output, his first “album” composed of two 18 minute tracks. An iconoclasm which allowed him to record his first “true” album one year later in February 1999 with Dialogue, this time with separate, distinctive tracks.


The arrival of this record on streaming platforms twenty years later opens a door to an “adolescent Four Tet” who had not yet become an electronic music star and the most sought-after remixer in England. It’s clear that this early Four Tet was already highly influenced by hip-hop and jazz as these elements are mixed into the record for what would be the first time. The beginning of The Space of Two reminds one of the abstract hip-hop heard of Prefuse 73. The record then unfolds into a very jazzy sound and drums which urge you to dance (Misnomer and the cosmic jazz The Butterfly Effect). Calamine is certainly the track which most foreshadows Four Tet’s future, with its use of strings and a more psychedelic sound with trance-like flutes from Emma Lindley and percussion mixed into the background. This record was not far away from his masterpiece Rounds, which was released four years later in 2003. © Smaêl Bouaici/Qobuz

Nils Frahm, An Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

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.
