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

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.
