It’s difficult to know how many versions there are of the French touch… One thing is for sure - through it’s sheer quality and quantity, this Gallic electro scene never fails to deliver new virtuosos every week. Utopia, the debut album from Terence N’Guyen, a.k.a. Darius, is all the proof you need. Emerging on the record label Roche Musique (Kartell, FKJ, Cherokee, Karma Kid, Zimmer, Jordan Lee, Dabeull, Plage 84…) via the label Animal63, this is an impeccable alloy of house, nu soul, downtempo and smooth funk, soaked with multiple influences. Hedonistic and refined, this album offers shades of chillwave (more dreamy than Toro Y Moi and Washed Out combined!), with noteworthy hip-hop beats of the late J Dilla verging on languid trip hop (like Massive Attack’s Mezzanine). Above all, it’s an album full with viscerally dreamy soul. On five of the tracks, Darius welcomes on board three misty and sensual voices. Those of Wayne Snow, the Nigerian based in Berlin, the American folk singer Max Jury and the Australian E^ST. Interventions that glue perfectly with the soundscapes created by this young electronic goldsmith who meanders through the minds of those who opt for his Utopia. © MZ/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.

Fabric, A British Institution

Since 1999, Fabric has been the heart and soul of the British electronic scene. Its Fabric and FabricLive compilation CD’s are imperative to the lives of record sellers and quality music lovers, while the club thrills clubbers every weekend with a 5-star program. Let’s dive into the history of a British institution.

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.
