This is Bonobo’s most awaited album. First of all because, since his first try Animal Magic on the Tru Thoughts label in 2000, the English producer, now signed to Ninja Tune (the label led by Coldcut) had never taken so long to release an album, five years since Migration. And secondly because since then, Simon Green has had three Grammy nominations (for Migration, Bambro Koyo Ganda in 2017 and Linked in 2019) and has therefore seen his fanbase grow. It’s been a tough start for Bonobo, who’s been hit by family tragedy. He eventually found his way back to the studio with Lara Somogyi, an American musician who’s reinvented the harp with fx pedals. While exploring the sound of modular synthesizers, he began to imagine a world through sessions with all-rounder Miguel Atwood-Ferguson (Flying Lotus, Dr. Dre, Thundercat etc.). But it was Jamila Woods, the new star of Chicago's New School, who gave him the key by singing the track Tides, which was the "focal point" of the album according to Green. The Los Angeles based producer, who went off into the wild to recharge his batteries between two lockdowns, lets his desire to get back to DJing shine through with a series of Detroit house style dancefloor bangers like Shadows, Rosewood, Otomo and Counterpart. The latter being one of the prettiest tracks on the album, both silky and intoxicating, like this Fragments which is more coherent than it seems. © 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.

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the ’90s, the trip hop wave overtook the UK with an electronica sound influenced by Jamaican music and hip hop beats. With their chloroformed rhythms and heavy ambience, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and several other outfits invented a kind of dark, futuristic and often cinematic soul music. Here’s a spotlight on 10 albums from a genre with blurred sonic borders but a definitive musical influence.

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.
