Those who are feeling nostalgic about 90s hip-hop can be rest assured: DJ Shadow has more left in the tank. Over twenty years after Endtroducing… the Bay Area producer has released Our Pathetic Age, one of his best records yet and certainly one of his most comprehensive since it comprises a double album where each track is as good as the last. Even Shadow considers it his most “cohesive” album since his 4-part EP What Does Your Soul Look Like from 1994.

The first disc showcases his instrumental side. As a pioneer of abstract hip-hop, Shadow’s music is impressive right from the off with the atmospheric soundscape of Slingblade. On Firestorm he proves that he can play the piano like few others on the rap scene, while the single Rosie (which samples from Little Rosie, a song from 1962 by the vocal trio The Phoenix Singers) encapsulates the different facets of DJ Shadow’s style. He describes the song as “a three-part voyage through my evolution as a beatmaker”. Equally brilliant are the tracks If I Died Today and We Are Always Alone.

The second disc boasts a dazzling list of featuring artists, with a number of figures from hip-hop’s “golden years”. We find Nas and Pharoahe Monch on the 80s beat of Drone Warfare, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah from Wu Tang Clan on Rain On Snow, and even De la Soul on the funky scratch-packed hit Rocket Fuel. It’s hard not to mention Gift of Gab’s performance, half of the Blackalicious duo, who gives a lesson in flow on C.O.N.F.O.R.M. We also find the narcotic hit Small Colleges (Stay With Me) with Wiki from the New York crew Ratking and Paul Banks, the singer from Interpol, as well as the wistful song Dark Side of the Heart, featuring the R&B singer Fantastic Negrito. 26 tracks of pure delight. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the 90s the trip hop wave flooded Great Britain with electro influenced by Jamaican music and rap beats. With dreamy rhythms and oppressive atmospheres, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and various others invented a futuristic kind of dark soul music which was sometimes very cinematographic. Time to zoom in on 10 albums from a genre with a fuzzy outline but a very clear influence.

Stax, Sounds Like The South...

Motown in the North. And Stax in the South. Two quite distinct conceptions of soul music. In the southern humidity of Memphis, Isaac Hayes, Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Booker T and a few others invented a unique groove imbibed with blues and above all gospel.

How Kanye West Turned Hip-hop on its Head

Over the last twenty years, Kanye West has consistently changed the course of rap music and influenced his era’s pop scene like no other. Collaborating with Paul McCartney, Rick Rubin, and Rihanna, he has both revitalized the careers of Jay-Z and Common and provided a platform for Kid Cudi and John Legend. Kanye West remains a major influence on artists such as Childish Gambino, Drake and The Weeknd. Cast yourself back to the career of an endlessly enigmatic artist.
