Ghostface Killahs is the Wu-Tang rapper's first true solo album in almost five years, following releases co-billed with the likes of Czarface and Big Ghost Ltd. Having left Def Jam in 2010, he's far removed from his major-label days, but even for an independent release, the album gives off the appearance of a low-profile mixtape rather than a studio album. The artwork looks like outtakes from an amateur straight-to-streaming crime movie, with Ghost surrounded by a crew donning cheap presidential masks and bearing weapons. The album itself is brisk, barely lasting half an hour, but it's packed with focused, riveting tracks. Ghost sounds as driven and inspired as ever, and the production, primarily handled by newcomer Danny Caiazzo, has a vintage Wu-Tang sound, filled with booming beats and lush, cinematic backdrops. "Burner to Burner" is laced with fuzzy, rough-edged guitars and eerie reversed vocals, while "Flex" revolves around a deep, aching soul sample. The lyrics typically consist of detailed heist scenes and sexual conquests, with the action-packed cop show caper "The Chase" being a definite high point, but there's a handful of more reflective moments. "New World" has a more laid-back groove and Curtis Mayfield-like chorus vocals by Eamon, with lyrics lamenting the state of the world and calling for resistance and revolution. The album ends with "Soursop," a Jamaican diversion with a sunny, reggae-inspired beat and uplifting vocals. The album seems somewhat patched-together compared to other Ghostface albums, but it still boasts some excellent tracks. The main problem is the blatantly homophobic and misogynistic lyrics which crop up throughout. Not that this is anything new, or unexpected, but it still mars an otherwise strong album. ~ Paul Simpson

Hip-Hop: 8 Legendary Producers

Can we imagine Guru without DJ Premier and De La Soul without Prince Paul? Behind every iconic rapper and cult group, there is a visionary producer who learned from his predecessors and developed his own sound. From the pioneer Marley Marl, who laid the foundations for modern production by showing what could be done with the first samples, to the shooting star J Dilla who, before his death at the age of 32, managed to leave a lasting mark on the genre, not to forget Bomb Squad’s sonic revolution and Dr Dre’s undisputed dominance on the West Coast. Here’s an overview of the studio masters that have ruled the hip-hop world for thirty years.

Nas, human after all

Nas became a legend at 20 years old. On his first attempt, this rapper coming from Queensbridge, New York, was already everything: an extraordinary technician, a striking narrator, a savior. But what happens next? How to evolve? How to surpass yourself when the industry regards you as the chosen one? How to age in a youth music when your first opus is your supreme work?

DJ-Kicks: the history of the compilation that redefined electronic music

“DJ-Kicks is the most important DJ mix series of all time,” wrote Mixmag, the leading magazine for electronic music in England. It’s hard to fault them: since 1995, the German label !K7 hasn’t made the slightest mistake on more than 60 volumes by entrusting their mixes to incomparable artists. A pioneer of the genre at a time when the format wasn’t commonplace, the label managed to release club mixes by making electronic music accessible to the mainstream audience.
