By 1968 there was a growing consensus that something had gone horribly wrong with the American dream. With urban riots, Vietnam, the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy, and ever-climbing divorce rates, the American way of life was under scrutiny from all sides. The nation’s youth had loudly made their feelings clear, but now the older, pre-Beatles generations began to look at the country and wonder what the hell was happening. This album includes rare classics (the Beach Boys’ ‘4th Of July’), lost masterpieces (Roy Orbison’s seven-minute ‘Southbound Jericho Parkway’) and forgotten gems by some of the biggest names in the business (Elvis Presley’s ‘Clean Up Your Own Back Yard’).

Francis Jean Marcel Poulenc was largely self-educated as a composer, becoming one of the group of young French composers known as Les Six thanks to the influence of Erik Satie. For decades after his death his reputation remained that of a lightweight, humorous composer, although more recently attention has been paid to his serious works including chamber music, choral music and opera. Jack Mattsson was a Finnish church musician, conductor and flautist from Åland.

As the title suggests, Beneath the Tide looks under the surface, examining underlying human realities that rise to the surface with the arrival of life’s changes. Beneath the Tide starts off with Clarinet Concertos by Michael G. Cunningham.

It is tempting to compare Matej Meštrovic's compositional style to his great predecessors in the late-Romantic tradition. After all, much of the Croatian composer's style and techniques would be right at home in Rachmaninoff’s concertos, Tchaikovsky's works, or Prokofiev's neoclassicism; and the name of the album's first work, Danube Rhapsody, naturally evokes associations with Smetana's similarly river-themed Vltava. Add to all of this that Meštrovic, like most of his great musical ancestors, is a talented virtuoso pianist, and it's easy to see why 3 Rhapsodies is bound to meet with enthusiasm.

Genre: Deep Huse, Funky, Dance, Disco / Label: Milk & Sugar

Steven 'Sugar' Harding and Michael 'Milk' Kronenberger set out their soundtrack for this year's WMC - and this selection has all the makings of an unforgettable party. The pair's own "That Body" is a wonderfully soulful house cut, laced with lush vocals and uplifting pianos. On "Walls", Purple Disco Machine pushes that style into an epic, indie vocal-led direction while at the other end of the spectrum, Monolink's "Black Day" veers into a slower, smoked out take on modern house. The pair have dug deep to include tracks from DJ Hal - his "Don't Give It Up" is given the unmistakable disco touch by remixers Full Intention - while Glasgow Underground founder Kevin McKay also features with the big room "Love Rights".

Just like Johann Sebastian Bach before him, Ludwig van Beethoven played a significant role in the development of the cello. His five sonatas for cello and piano, three cycles of variations and the Triple Concerto all enhanced the instrument's expressive scope to an extent that has not been bettered to date. With his unparalleled ability to endow the instrument with highly lyrical and elegantly cantabile qualities, he blazed the trail for composers who would follow him.

Genre: Ambient, Experimental, Techno / Label: !K7 Records

The 68th edition of the DJ-Kicks mix series is another landmark one, with experimental producer Laurel Halo taking the reins. The American’s adventurous 29 track trip features seven exclusives, including two of her own plus those from Rrose, Machinewoman, FIT Siegel, Nick León and Ikonika. An electronic outlier, Halo hails from Ann Arbor, Michigan, but has been based in Berlin for a number of years. Landing on labels like Hyperdub, Honest Jon’s and Latency, Halo has released a body of work ranging in style, yet cohered by production and compositional tendencies that sound distinctly her own. Her studio work tends to be a multi-layered mix of the electronic and the acoustic, the organic and the synthetic. As a DJ, meanwhile, she lays down more floor-focussed mixes of techno, bass and worldly drum rhythms, and her live sets are similarly visceral and direct.

In the ten years since its creation, the Opus 333 quartet has become a veritable ambassador for traditional french brass. In France and throughout the world, this surprising chamber music quartet has met with success thanks to their great musical complicity and their daring transcriptions of the greatest works from the classical and contemporary repertoire. For their 10th anniversary, Opus 333 is making a stopover in Spain! The melancholy of the Oriental by Granados compliments the virtuosic and brassy power of the Danses Espagnoles from La Vida Breve by De Falla. The luminous Granada enlightens the hectic Asturias by Albeniz… A second opus and a confirmation of the talent of this unique quartet!
