With a cast list lengthy enough to compete with that of a small movie, The Album is an auditory trip into the lives of a handful of nefarious individuals living a gangsta lifestyle. Major players on this project include Nas ("Escobar"), Foxy Brown, AZ ("Sosa"), and Nature, although tracks are peppered with additional and less popular MCs such as Pretty Boy ("Firm All Stars"), Wizard ("Untouchable"), Canibus ("Desperados"), Noreaga ("I'm Leaving"), and Half-A-Mil ("Throw Your Guns"). Dr. Dre and the Trackmasters share equal billing as supervising producers. Dre's production is atypically diverse from track to track and lacks any samples or arrangements reminiscent of his work with N.W.A., Snoop Dogg, or his own solo projects. This diversity may be the result of the collaboration with Chris "The Glove" Taylor on the production tasks for five of the six tracks for which Dre is responsible. The teamwork production of the Trackmasters is orchestrated by Poke, Tone, Kurt Gowdy, and L.E.S., and provides the instrumentation for the remaining seven of 13 songs.

The 10 Records that Made the French Touch

Twenty years ago, the French Touch invaded the clubs and radio stations all over the world, putting France high on the map of electronic music. Qobuz tells you the story of 10 records which have left their mark on this golden era of French producers.

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the ’90s, the trip hop wave overtook the UK with an electronica sound influenced by Jamaican music and hip hop beats. With their chloroformed rhythms and heavy ambience, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and several other outfits invented a kind of dark, futuristic and often cinematic soul music. Here’s a spotlight on 10 albums from a genre with blurred sonic borders but a definitive musical influence.

Run The Jewels: Stick it to the Man

As they neared their fortieth birthdays, Killer Mike (a black rapper from Atlanta with close links to OutKast) and El-P (a white Brooklyn b-boy and proponent of experimental rap) formed Run The Jewels, a rap supergroup which could easily have been yet another addition to a long list of hiphop misfires. But on the contrary, they are now an institution, a group that delights audiences and awakens consciences. Their new album RTJ4 is their most political and devastating. Let us take a look back at Killer Mike and El-P’s story.
