Review: AIMES is the production moniker and musical alter ego of Alabama born, Brooklyn resident, Aman Ellis. Fresh off releases on Wonder Stories, Spa In Disco and Pole Position, his signature brand of "spacey disco" with synth-pop sensibilities is on fine display once again for new imprint eclectics who rein him in to follow up great releases recently by James Rod, Mr BC and Coyote. Featuring the deeply emotive boogie-down antics of "You Should Be Feeling Wonderful , the sunkissed balearica of "Sun Lit Lazy" and a couple of pretty awesome remixes. Our favourite was certainly by the UK legend Chris Coco who serves up blissful, neon-lit island dream on his fabulous rendition here of "Bomba Espacio".

Review: As Cole Odin emerges as a producer we've got to know from the San Francisco area who once appeared on Golf Channel compilation in 2015, he now brings some extra attention to the eclectics label with this new EP. Using looping, motorik momentum and endlessly inventive guitar motifs to create a sonic landscape that's satisfyingly familiar yet littered with signposts to new and exotic destinations, one can't help but hear flashes of The XX through to Stereolab's "Simple Headphone Mind". Take in Bristol remixer DJ Jack Priest for something spiralling and Italo alongside Adam Warped's folkier remix, and you have that perfect blend of the organi and traditional with the surreal. Happy days.

Review: Coyote's wide-reaching assortment of post-balearic disco sounds never ceases to please our demanding eardrums, and the duo have done it once again with this tidy EP to launch the Eclectics imprint. "Too Late To Be Scared" travels majestically from start to finish, swaying its groove with slow, liquid-like synths that melt over mid-tempo house drums; there's a Dark Drift mix which ups the tempo a notch and lands on heavier 4/4 territories, while the ambient version revels in an airy, almost angelic wave of sounds that bounce along with the help of subtle subbass injections. A class outing.

Review: Eclectics has been quietly getting on with the business of releasing essential music for over a year now, establishing itself as a label that has quality as the only constant in a wide-ranging back catalogue. This latest release is no exception, but that's not to say it isn't exceptional. All the way from Daytona Beach in Florida, Justin Weems aka Faint Waves, brings music to fall for in a big way. The Paradise Lost EP features the soothing, shimmering celestial new age tones of the title track, which receives a neon-lit rework by San Francisco's Dream Chimney. Then the chilled-out balearica of "Sea Of Dreams" also gets remixed: this time by Sentrall Records Rollmottle who takes it into deep and dark kosmische territory.

Review: In the 18 months that have passed since the Eclectics label launched, the imprint has delivered a string of must-have EPs from lesser known producers and rising stars. Their latest signee, James Bright, fits that profile. A maker of downtempo grooves and Balearic beats since the dawn of the decade, Bright's releases have thus far been surprisingly limited. This is a surprise, especially since "Pacific Bright" contains some wonderful material. Opener "Mnemba", for example, is a stunning sunset soundscape bristling with lazy guitar solos and fluid pianos, while "La Digue" wraps synthesized marimba melodies around a chunky, dub-disco inspired Balearic groove. Also worth checking is "Roatan", an intensely picturesque soundscape full of elongated chords, lilting trumpet solos and gentle Spanish guitars.

World So High (Red) - (4:57) 102 BPM
Review: It's not so often we see from the enigmatic James Bright, a new agey, new-waving, disco producer outta the UK whose music in an intermittent way has, over the years, made it to obscure Russian labels further afield to others like Nang and the now defunct Tundra label via his Lux project with Seve Miller. Now with The Bournemouth-based Eclectics label (think 20/20 Vision) whom he contributed the track "Love" in a compilation they released last year, Bright delivers a fully accomplished piece World So High EP. The record brings together Avalon-era Roxy Music nous to the outer reaches of Balearic genre experimentation, shiny pop and exotica, with some new age that has us thinking Deep Forest. Our picks: "Sula" and "Transmission Station".

Review: The ninth release from British label eclectics sees them continue their worldwide search for the finest tunes they can find. Enigmatic Turkish producer KaaN offers up original track "Adab I Raki" delving deep into the exotic underground of Istanbul. Project Spectre (Clandestino's Iain Mcbeath) delivers a truly hypnotic and melodic rework for the late night, Birmingham duo Field of Dreams go for some deep and trippy acid on their rendition, and Blackpool's Ed Mahon also successfully makes the track his own with his magickal and atmospheric rework.

Review: Is the sheer pace and stress of 21st Century living getting you down? Time to unwind with this collection of downtempo and Balearic bizniss from eclectics, a label that's been turning out the White Isle-friendly grooves from the somewhat more intermittently sun-drenched location of Bournemouth, UK since 2017. Stylistically, tracks range from the bass-y, slo-mo disco of James Bright's 'Caribou', to the sultry tropical vibes of Sam Back2MyHouse's '120 Degrees In The Shade' and the plinky-plonk synth-pop of Guy Mayan's 'Dreaming'; what ties it all together is the overall lazy, sunset-friendly feel. Pass the sun screen... oh, and mine's a mojito if you're offering!
