Haitian turntablist/producer Val Jeanty (aka Val-Inc) met Indian drummer and electronic musician Ravish Momin at an artist workshop in Brooklyn in 2017, and the two soon began collaborating as Turning Jewels Into Water. Continuing in the direction set by 2018 EP Which Way Is Home?, TJIW's first full-length is filled with improvisation-based creations that draw from the duo's combined ancestries by electronic instrumentation and samples. They construct broken rhythms using MIDI controllers and drum triggers, and ghostly voices are transmitted via turntable scratches. The choppy rhythms and unpredictable progressions make evident the spontaneity of the duo's creative process; everything sounds live and unprogrammed, and it all moves in a dream-like state. The album's title track mixes tribal drums with Delia Derbyshire-esque electronic tones, while "Desert Fire" is a sort of beguiling Afro-dub. The duo keep their ear to global dance music innovations, dedicating one track to Lisbon-based visionary Nídia and handing others over to producers such as Kenya's Slikback and Mexico City's Nueve Vidas. While informed by styles like footwork and kuduro, TJIW never try to directly emulate them, instead forging their own cross-cultural path which envisions a more positive, unified world. ~ Paul Simpson

New Order: From Darkness to Dance-floor

How does one Mancunian group move from perhaps the gloomiest band of the punk era to a master of the dance-floor? In the early eighties, straight out of Joy Division’s ashes, New Order marked one of the first successful unions of rock’n’roll and dance music. A perfect soundtrack for a morose, Thatcherite England.

Jean-Michel Jarre, 50 Years of Electronic Music

To celebrate his 50-year-long career, Jean-Michel Jarre has released the edifying compilation Planet Jarre, a collection of 41 tracks that highlight the path set by the pioneer of electronic music. It’s a wonderful opportunity to look back over the five decades during which the Frenchman expressed himself as an artist, a mad scientist, a visionary, a sucker for record breaking spectacles, an activist and now the torchbearer for artists struggling for fairer pay online.

Mason Bates' weird and wonderful electronic symphonies

What do you mean, you haven’t heard about Mason Bates (yet)? He is one of the hottest names on the North-American music scene. Born in 1977, Bates is a symphonic and lyrical composer as well as an electro DJ (under the alias DJ Masonic) – two completely opposing genres which he takes great delight in mixing. Around half of his symphonic and lyrical work consists, in one way or another, of electronic sounds. The majority of these sounds are “every day sounds”, which are prerecorded and later put into a score. On the release date of his brilliant opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz interviewed this extraordinary person.
