After a politically engaged third album released three years ago (Future Politics), Katie Stelmanis, the brain behind Austra, has gone for a different approach on HiRUDiN, locking herself up for three days in a studio in Toronto with musicians she had never met before, including part of the contemporary music improv group c_RL, the duo Kamancello (a cello and a kamanche) and an all-female kulintang ensemble (a Filipino percussion musical instrument). Having become a kind of LGBT+ indie icon, Katie Stelmanis opens up a little more on this album and deals with more intimate themes such as the consequences of toxic relationships and insecurities linked to her sexuality. The new wave influence is also more drawn-out in the orchestration which is imbued with classical touches (her passion when she was younger), carried mostly by the cello and piano. More pop than synth, like the first Supertramp-esque track Anyways, Austra releases a flock of powerful hits (Risk It, with its broken beat and cello skank, the catchy It's Amazing, Mountain Baby with its children's choir or the danceable I Am Not Waiting) which could well send her up a level. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim: The Big Beat Story

As Keith Flint, The Prodigy’s lead singer, has just passed away, Qobuz looks back on the history of the big beat, an intense movement that blew up musical boundaries, led by three major players: The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim.

How reggae conquered American Pop

Not since the days of Bob Marley has Reggae enjoyed such a high profile. For three years, hits by the stars of North American pop have taken on a distinctly Jamaican flavour. From Beyoncé to Rihanna, via Drake or Justin Bieber, more and more pop artists have taken to superimposing their voice over dancehall tracks. Dancehall, the "club" version of reggae, was popularised in the mid-1980s by the legendary producer King Jammy with Sleng Teng, the first electronic reggae track in history. Let's take a look at this velvet coup.

R&S Records: When Belgium set the pace

In 35 years of existence, Belgian label R&S (founded by Renaat Vandepapeliere and Sabine Maes) has browsed through all the subgenres of electronic music. Most importantly, it’s been on the forefront of almost all of the revolutions in the history of this niche music scene: techno, house, hard-core, drum’n’bass and dubstep. Let’s look back on ten key moments for this label that became synonymous with avant-garde, setting the pace for the electronic music industry, and let’s dive into some of Renaat Vandepapeliere’s fondest memories.
