21-06-2018 — Nils Frahm’s finger tips. Oh to be touched by them. Everything they touch becomes beautiful. Keyboards, goatees, knobs and faders… in the hands of this German composer and producer they seem to be able to switch beauty on and off at will and they are therefore, objects and fragments of the ...
20-06-2018 — Welcome, welcome to Mavi Phoenix’s jungle. Move those palm trees leaves out of the way and discover an exotic songbird, carry on along the path of electronic bends and you will get to a waterfall that gurgles with phrasing and autotune. This is the tropical and refreshing microcosm that will be re...
19-06-2018 — Bacardí Live stage, Thursday 31st May, 4 o’clock in the morning. According to these time-space coordinates, we would be in the volcanic concert that the French artist Carpenter Brut gave in Barcelona just a few days ago at Primavera Sound. But in truth, the date and the location to which the keyb...
15-06-2018 — What would happen if Black Sabbath made Afrobeat? If Fela Kuti had decided that metal was his thing?

It shouldn’t come as any shock then, that antagonistic genres come tog...
11-06-2018 — In Spiritualized’s music three states of matter exist in harmony: the foundations of his songs are as hard as silex and his arrangements pour out, flow and fill spaces like a liquid. The fact that from this combination comes a music that rises gas-like to the skies is a mystery that only Jason Pie...
07-06-2018 — Diggers of Brazilian music love him. And it is hardly surprising: since he started recording music in 1963, Marcos Valle has been a cornucopia of rare grooves, exotica, samba, bossa, soundtracks, rock, funk, disco and psychedelia. But for some time now the Carioca artist is no longer a secret ...
06-06-2018 — Dark pop. Two words that, on paper, seem like an oxymoron. But on stage, when performed by The KVB, they seem like heaven. Nick Wood and Kay Day are the type of people who are happy when it rains. In their sound cloakroom black is definitely dominant. Krautrock, dark pop, post-punk, cold electronic ...
06-06-2018 — If jazz is undergoing a sweet resurgence it is thanks to names like Kamaal Williams, the artistic name of Londoner Henry Wu. The keyboard player and producer has had a meteoric career in the last few years, a career that includes the album Black Focus in 2016 together with Yussef Dayes. 2018 sees th...
