Review: The horizontally-inclined duo Jim Breese and Chris Coco return with a second Balearic compilation to further expresses the indefinable spirit behind the movement. Some thirteen tracks and the DJ mix across the generous compilation that is beautifully hazy. From A Vision Of Panorama's Bergerac-style Jersey jaunt "Seaside Tune" to the slack Paqua bass twangs of Simon Peter's "Arc Of Lark" by way of the dreamy cloud funk of Horsebeach's "Midnight" and nylon string introspection of Dream Lovers' "Brasil", this lives up to its name in every possible way. Perfect timing.
Review: The eighth release on Sccucci Manucci sees the imprint pack a hefty eight productions that traverse various house sounds from around the world onto two slabs of handstamped wax. From Coeo's bouncy and vocal track through to Mella Dee's dark and distinctively UK-centric track the label has tried to explore the sheer wealth of production talent on offer at the moment.
Review: Released on Joey Negro's Z Records, Rio spinner DJ Meme whips through thirty of the best from Z on this new mix - available either as individual unmixed tracks or as one continuous mix. Always a haven for the best soulful and funky house, Z Records highlights such as JN's mix of Doug Willis' "Power To The People", Sean McCabe's mix of JD73's "Think Twice" and Akabu's "The Phuture Ain't What It Used To Be" make for an effortlessly bumping and uplifting voyage.
