"On The Corner" was released in 1972. As a jazz fusion album it was Miles's funkiest attempt at connecting with a young black audience who had left jazz behind for the new sounds of Hip-Hop and Rock & Roll. Turns out the styles implemented in "On The Corner" became major influences for modern Hip-Hop, as well as Drum & Bass. This record is phenomenal so listen good.

Nobody does electronic like the French, in my humble opinion, and M83's second release is a fine example. So thick, so hypnotic, this album will leave you entranced and at the same time fill your mind with fantastical themes. These songs sound heavy and, at times, tragic. This has become my favorite acid record and you'll understand why once you give a listen. So please do.. listen.
