隨著武漢肺炎疫情在全球蔓延肆虐,電音社群也無可避免感受到病毒威力。近期我們聽說了LEMAY與Idris Elba感染的消息,Stomry也由於身體不適正在等待檢驗結果。以New Orleans Bounce風格聞名的DJ Black N Mind則很不幸地因病逝世,得年44歲。

被譽為Trance界最優美夢幻的聲音,來自倫敦的Above & Beyond也未能倖免於疾病的衝擊。就在3月25日,該團傳出團員Paavo Siljamäki確診的消息。在病榻上的Paavo仍不忘鼓勵樂迷與醫療人員攜手合作捍衛健康:「在這個艱困時刻,我非常感謝他們願意冒著生命幫助我。」本週Above & Beyond推出了知名單曲〈Bittersweet and Blue〉的舞池混音版,這首緬懷故人的作品寓意深遠,正可撫慰人們當下悲痛的心情。

雖然大型音樂季因疫情紛紛喊停,但藝人們的發行腳步可沒有停下來。本週Tropical House類型非常活躍,似乎急著搶先一步宣告夏日即將到來。在這些作品中,最值得注意的是Kygo與Zara Larsson合作的〈Like It Is〉。隨著本首單曲發表,Kygo也宣布他的新專輯已經大功告成。樂迷們拭目以待吧。

本週還有許多值得一提的專輯,分佈在各種類型。譬如Psy Trance的《More than Just a Name》、Chill trap的《A Promise Is Made - Remixes》與Downtempo的《Simulcast》等等。在這其中,我們特別推薦《Illusion Of Time》。這張專輯由英國製作人Daniel Avery與Nine Inch Nails鍵盤手Alessandro Cortini攜手合作,迷幻的Drone聲響宛如花瓣在細雨中緩速飄散,最宜春日鑑賞。
