Review: Cardiff's nu-disco label Pole Position are in good spirits, and with this album marking their golden jubilee of releases, who can blame them? 50 releases is a good time to take stock of all you've achieved, and glancing at this 15 song tracklisting it's clear they've accomplished quite a lot indeed. Highlights include the deep and soothing Balearic soul of "After Rain", the sensual mong-house of DATO's "We Could Be Dancing" and the blissed out electro-funk of "For The Sake Of Love".
Review: London is a cruel, addictive mistress: countless artists across every discipline imaginable have scribbled, sung and sketched their own unique homage to one of the world's truly great cities. Arcadis joins that list with London Lights; the title track is an insouciant house jam with breezy, Breakbot-esque arpeggios, it's more sunny day in Kew Gardens than grotty Bethnal Green back alley. The rest of the EP is worth checking too, most notably the low slung piano house of "Lost Days" and the starry-eyed funk of Lazuli and Viper Strike's remix of "Waitress".
