Madlib looks back to his influences, in order to bring back their sounds to the present, and preserve them for the future.

At this point in time, Otis Jackson Jr., aka Madlib, doesn't need introduction for music nerds and Hip-hop aficionados around the world. Known for his many aliases and projects in where he puts his characteristic touch, Madlib is a living legend in music. His catalog of solo and collaborative albums is immense, but also full of quality. The man has given us, arguably, a ... read more

It seems like Burial always had a clear vision of what his creative output, since day one, would be like, in sonic palette terms.

Lovely mixture of Ambient Techno and Future Garage.

Bicep is an electronic duo hailing from Belfast, Northern Ireland, and this is their second studio album, titled "Isles".

PC Music is running the Pop game right now, dropping excellent Pop music with an experimental edge on instrumentation, inspired by the metallic sonic palettes of Electronic music genres like IDM, Electroclash and Electro House. But please, give to Ms. Britney Spears her flowers too. This album was a blueprint in terms of performance, production and aesthetics.

As you can see, I've been on a Ambient Pop/Dream Pop/Ambient vibe, and that's because I really like how electronic musicians can create ambiance and climate in different ways. Thanks to Youtube's algorithm, I came across this album by this mysterious duo Deux Filles. The mysteriousness about this record and the group itself relies on the history behind the concept of this duo. You can do a quick research about this group's history to see what I'm talking about. But this album was a pleasant ... read more

Hello there! What is an album that you've given a 100 score, and why so?

Simple explanations are fine enough, but detailed reasoning is of course welcome. If you have multiple 100s, then just pick one of them as your answer. It's for a list by the way. Thanks in advance, and have a great day!
