Review: It's been almost two decades since Sven Vath's Cocoon party started its mission to redefine clubbing in Ibiza, and the latest compilation provides a glimpse at how it has achieved this. From the outset, the veteran DJ pushes the limits of house and techno, with offbeat work from Willow and Basti Grub and Eduadro De La Calle's cheeky, Plastikman referencing "The Horus Eye". While relative newcomers like Fort Romeau and DJ Slyngshot make an appearance, Vath also pays homage to veteran producers. This means that Eddie Fowlkes' organ-led house groove, "Twisted Boy" is present, alongside contributions from Aubrey (the warped minimalism of "Clock Funk") and Slam - who drop the vocal-heavy "Clap Your Hands". It would not be surprising if Vath is still preaching the Cocoon gospel on Ibiza in another 18 years.
