This is the tenth studio album by the stalwart of the British electronic scene; Sixteen Oceans offers an hour-long journey through Four Tet’s inspired mind. The album which could too hastily be labelled ‘ambient’ starts off upbeat with School and Baby, a perfect warm-up with a 2-step beat and a “Take Me On” chopped vocal (a catchy Ellie Goulding sample). Granted, Harpsichord (featuring notes played on the instrument of the same name), Green and 4T Recordings (which resound like the soundtrack to a forest on Pandora) are pretty ambient, but they also prove that Four Tet is no one trick pony.

The producer dives into downtempo/electronica with tracks such as the single Teenage Birdsong and its jumble of blades and keyboards, spoils us with the Burial-esque underground beat of Love Salad and gets trippy with aquatic samples (Bubbles At Overlook 25th March 2019). Some standouts from this album full of surprises include Something in the Sadness, a nod to Mathew Jonson, and Insect Near Piha Beach, started off by a heavy techno kick and gradually soothed by a swarm of strings and heavenly voices that result in an astonishingly masterful sonic chiaroscuro. ©️ Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Nils Frahm, An Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.

Erased Tapes, a Not-so-classic Label

Since its birth in 2007, Erased Tapes has made a name for itself as one of the most innovative labels of the last 15 years and enjoyed great commercial success. Although some fail to see past its neoclassical shopfront (Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds), the London-based label explores the outer limits of ambient, electronica and experimental with a catalogue that's smoothly curated by the German Robert Raths. Qobuz takes a closer look.
