Review: Soon the summer of 2021 will be all but a memory, but All Day I Dream are determined to keep it going just that bit longer via their latest Summer Sampler - a collection of warm and melodious club cuts tailor-made for humid evenings, crystal clear nights and sun-drenched afternoons. As you'd expect, there's plenty of musical highlights to be found across the hugely atmospheric and entertaining 12-track set, with our picks including the quietly ghostly chunkiness of Lost Desert, Simon Vuarambon and Hernandez's 'Moon By Day', the picturesque joyousness of 'Evergreen' by Pippi Ciez and the rolling, extra-percussive delight that is Max Degrassi's 'In The Light of Laughter'. We'd also recommend Madraas and Eduardo MacGregor's stunning 'Searching The Sun', as well as the melodic, far-sighted rush of Vince Watson's 'Quiriwana'.
Review: More typically deep, dreamy and melodic house tackle here from Lee Burridge's All Day I Dream stable, but this time served with an Afro twist, as Birmingham-based producer Pippi Ciez teams up with Idd Aziz, a Kenyan vocalist who's worked with the likes of Youssou N'Dour, Angelique Kidjo, Alpha Blondy and Salif Keita. The Original is the more floor-friendly of the two rubs, thanks largely to its deep, rumbling bassline, but both are pretty laidback and would be perfect for kicking off those warm-up sessions and longer mixes. Burning Man is taking place virtually this year anyway - spin this, and you're virtually there!
