Through The Night (feat David Harks) - (4:17) 105 BPM
Review: Under the Satin Jackets alias, German nu-disco don Tim Bernhardt has released a swathe of synth-pop influenced singles, but only one album. "Solar Nights", his delayed follow-up to 2016 debut LP "Panorma Pacifico", has the feel of a crossover hit in the making, with Bernhardt once again showcasing his ability to graft gorgeous, sun-kissed and synth-heavy Balearic pop that's as comforting and life-affirming as a loved-up hug from your nearest and dearest. There are, of course, plenty of club-focused cuts to enjoy too, with highlights including the colourful, piano-heavy nu-disco/Balearic house fusion of "String It Again", dreamy chugger "Still Not Forgotten" and almost overwhelmingly gorgeous "All For You" standing out.

Review: (Mr) Satin Jackets is both the name of duo Tim Bernhardt and Den Ishu and the fictional protagonist of their songs (depicted here on the cover of their debut album as a Money For Nothing-style computer graphic). The 80s influences continue way beyond the sleeve as the music is pure white linen suit, palm tree and breezy ocean territory. There are 12 smooth FM synth gems on here including hit singles "You Make Me Feel Good", "Shine On You" and "We Can Talk". If a neon-tinged pop-house update of vintage synthpop is your thing, then this is most definitely your album!

Review: Ten years ago, Eskimo Recordings emerged from Ghent, as an outlet for mix albums from hometown heroes the Glimmers. Since then, the label has gone on to be a leading light on the nu-disco and nu Balearic scenes. Fittingly, this expansive tenth anniversary set was put together by the Glimmers, and features two solo DJ mixes featuring label highlights aplenty. For DJs, the real bonus is the huge selection of unmixed tracks on display, which adeptly showcases the depth and variety of the label's output. Highlights are plentiful, from the woozy Scandolearic vibes of Lindstrom & Prins Thomas and brilliance of early Aeroplane, to the sun-bright dream pop of Hiem, and the bouncing dancefloor groovery of LHAS Inc.

Feel Me (Bill Brewster edit) - (8:14) 104 BPM
Review: Parisian producer Simon Says has been doing his thing for nigh on two decades now, most recently via Dialect Recordings. Few of his previous releases, though, are quite as saucy and arresting as "Feel Me" - a killer dub-disco re-imagining of a lesser-known 1982 Blancmange album track rich in bubbling synthesizers, fuzzy bass guitar, whispered vocals and spacey synthesizer melodies. For those looking for a dose of extended pleasure, Bill Brewster's chugging re-edit - an eight-minute scalpel rearrangement of Simon Says' original - should scratch that itch. Elsewhere, fellow French producer Yuksek pushes up the tempo and gives the track a little more pulsating nu-disco flavour on two tasty revisions, while Eskimo regulars NTEIBINT cannily emphasizes Simon Says' flash-fried funk-rock guitars.

Review: When Eskimo Recordings approached Bill Brewster with the idea of putting together a compilation exploring his epic record collection, the acclaimed journalist and DJ decided to take a widescreen approach. While the CD and vinyl versions are split into multiple, themed editions ("Post-Punk", "Balearic" and "House"), this vast, 41-track digital edition gathers everything together in one place. Predictably, it's a hugely impressive and eye-opening set, with Brewster serving up largely obscure or long-forgotten cuts that range in scope from trippy, dubbed-out post-punk disco, jaunty jazz-funk, synth-heavy boogie and heavily percussive Afro-disco grooves, to saucer-eyed European synth-pop, the dub techno of Maurizio, Swag's early UK tech-house and the East Midlands deep house bump of Charles Webster's "A Love From San Francisco" project. In other words, it's a cracker from start to finish.

How Long Can I Wait For You - (7:06) 109 BPM
Review: German nu-disco duo Satin Jackets is back on Eskimo Recordings with a tasty collection of cuts from the vaults. The majority of the material on Diamonds Are Forever - save for a couple of unreleased exclusives and reworks - originally came out on various obscure compilations and EPs earlier in the decade. There's natural plenty to enjoy, from the swirling, sun-kissed dreaminess of opener "Latin Jackets" and the sparkling, loved-up synth-pop-goes-Balearic-house brilliance of "Hollywood", to the breezy, beach-friendly cheeriness of EP standout "How Long Can I Wait For You". The EP also offers a chance to own two sought-after Satin Jackets remixes, with their nu-disco/deep house fusion re-make of Novika's "Miss Mood" standing out.

As the title suggests, Beach is the most laidback, loved-up and Balearic of the three collections, and contains all manner of weird, wonderful and evocative fare - most of which is suitably obscure and hard-to-find. Highlights are naturally plentiful, from the reggae-goes-cosmic trip of Tony Wilson's "Hangin' Out In Space", and fuzzy, calypso-rock bounce of Adrian Gurvitz's "New World", to the eccentric Balearic disco shuffle of Amini's "Habibi" and quirky electro-boogie silliness of Danny Boy's "Discomix", a 1983 Dutch release that's guaranteed to put smiles on the faces of even the grumpiest dancers.

Gelee Royale - (7:02) 105 BPM
Review: Nu-disco may be on the wane a little, but thankfully there a still a few acts capable of delivering deliciously dreamy and floor-friendly electronic disco jams. German duo Satin Jackets is one of those acts. This three-tracker for Belgium's Eskimo Recordings is full of enveloping chords, shuffling grooves and bright-eyed melodies. Opener "Sunrise In Paradise" sounds like classic Aeroplane with a dash of hazy, horizontal pop thrown in, while "Galee Royale" is so effortlessly sun-kissed that you want to grab your sunnies and head for the beach. Closer "Fall Apart", meanwhile, is almost thrillingly dreamy, with Patrick Barber's guitar and vocal drifting from the speakers as if it was a plastic bag caught in a humid summer breeze.

Closer To Life - (4:03) 101 BPM
Review: You'll know Belgium's Eskimo label better than you think. The imprint rose to fame thanks to the many productions of Italian nu-disco sensation Aeroplane, back in the late 00s, and they've never ceased to release quality electronic music from all corners of the spectrum. Newcomers Atella X Froder land this time, with the two collaborating on the slow, peaceful waves of "Closer To Life", a tune that sits somewhere on the halfway line between house and downtempo. Atella, alone, delivers another mix of the same tune, and this one is perhaps even deeper, a little smoother and probably more on the sort of balearic tip that you've been digging in those dusty L1 bins for. Just go digital with it.

Review: Chanteuse Niya Wells stars as German nu-disco don Tim Bernhardt once again slips on his Satin Jackets and gets "Lost In Japan". Wells is naturally in fine form on the title track, delivering strong and sultry vocals over a breezy and attractive blend of rich pianos, fluttering electronics, deep melodies and a huggable nu-disco groove. As ever with Bernhardt's work, the song is just as radio-friendly as it is dancefloor-focused. Speaking of which, some DJs may prefer the accompanying Dub revision, in which snippets of Wells' vocals drift across a deeper, echo-laden bed of Balearic disco goodness.

Review: This triple-album collection is something of a treat for Prins Thomas fans. Released as an accompaniment to his epic, three-disc Paradise Goulash mix, it's entirely made up of previously unreleased re-edits from the Norwegian maestro. Musically, it's as cosmic and varied as you'd expect, variously touching on ambient (Claude Speed), Balearic jazz (Gabor Szabo), Middle Eastern oddness (Cat Trance), synth-samba (Richard Schneider Jnr), modern classical (a Johanna Billings cover of Arthur Russell's "This Is How We Walk On The Moon"), and all manner of hazy, sun-kissed grooves. There's little slamming dancefloor fare, but plenty of unique versions of overlooked, little known or forgotten musical gems. For that alone, it should be an essential purchase.

Review: Ilya Santana uses complex structures and enchanted melodies in his music in an attempt to uncover hidden emotions. Having previously remixed The Human League, The Phenomenal Handclap Band and Lindstrom, Santana's first release for Eskimo is "Burning Jupiter," a spaced out, disco tinged piece of electronic. The singles precedes his debut artist album, out later this year.

Review: Going by their effusive press release, Eskimo Recordings are rather excited about new signings Holy Models, a self-proclaimed "psychedelic daytime disco band" from South Australia. To be fair, "Swimming" - a wide-eyed, loose-limbed fusion of chugging Balearic bagginess, acid-fried electrofunk and touchy-feely electronics - is pretty darn tasty. It's bright enough to excite the nu-disco crowd, but dubby and eccentric enough to entice the heads. The remixes are largely tasty, too, with comeback kid Anu Pilai (AKA Freeform Five) delivering a typically brilliant Freeform Reform (think masterful leftfield deep house/disco) and fellow Aussie Rocco Raimundo dropping some suitably dreamy horizontal disco.

Flying Circuits - (5:38) 106 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Norway's seemingly bottomless well of electronic talent is an inexplicable phenomena. Made In Sane, a self-styled "mystery duo" from Bergen (home of Royksopp and Erland Oye), tread a familiar path to those well versed in Norse nu-disco. "Flying Circuits", their debut, shows great promise, delivering a formidably bright and sparkly fusion of chugging synths, pin-sharp melodies and new wave attitude. It's the kind of thing you'd expect to hear on Prins Thomas's Full Pupp label, which is praise indeed. Man Power slows the tempo and ups the chug factor on his decidedly cosmic tweak, while fellow Norse nu-disco type Morkeby goes all wide-eyed and Balearic, resulting in an extra-melodic, extra-special rework.

Review: The original of this first saw the light back in autumn 2013, and it remains a dynamically built nu-disco track boasting early Aeroplane style piano licks and an arresting vocal from Kristina Train. It's Blamma Blamma at their most stately and stunning. Here we find it in remix form; Psychemagik provide a liquid, bulbous bass facelift, Cato re-emphasises the nude beauty with a few edit sparkles, Wolf + Lamb go deeper with a synth heavy late-night floor stomper while Kiani vs Red D close the show with a sunset-minded slice of modern euphoria. Each twist adding a whole new chapter to the Blamma Blamma story, the only problem is working out which rub to add in your next set.

Here they present a newie by Danish producer Brynjolfur and, if synthy Europop's your bag, you'll love it. "I Love You" is all about the glacial synth washes, mid '80s electro-boogie bassline (think The Rah Band) and a general romantic disco air. Remix-wise we get more organic disco courtesy of A Copycat and Martin Brodin, a more brisk dancefloor version from Pharao Black Magic and some classic '80s pop vibes from Peter Visti.

The Orange Collection, the fourth volume in the series, continues in this vein. Packed with colourful synths, tactile rhythms and vibrant vocals, highlights include the chiming nu-Balearic pop of This Soft Machine, the cheery Italo revivalism of Tarjei Nygard and Are Foss's "Flog", and the quirky Scandolearic deep house wooziness of Trulz & Robin's collaboration with fellow Norwegian Ost, "Find My Love".

Review: Drop Out Orchestra's "It Will Never Be The Same Again" first appeared on Aeroplane's In-Flight Entertainment mix in October 2011, and here we finally see a single release on Eskimo Recordings, including a set of remixes from the likes of Moullinex and Punks Jump Up. Moullinex takes the optimistic core of the original and injects some Chicago snare rolls and a rounded, plucking bass line that sits in the back of the throat. Punks Jump Up meanwhile utilise a notable clap drenched in a deadly phase that cuts right through the beat. The vocal hook, fierce piano stabs and soft guitar sounds all dovetail with effortless aplomb, making for a very enjoyable cut that rounds off a fine release.

Review: Few labels have championed nu-disco and Balearic synth-pop quite as much as Belgium's Eskimo Recordings. Here they unveil another softly spun autumnal treat: a sumptuous combination of debutant Else Born's hazy, evocative vocals, and a tactile backing track that cannily combines undulating drums, stretched-out chords, nu-disco synth bass and attractive Balearic flourishes. Los Angeles-based French duo Blue Hotel provide solid remix support, making the most of the Norwegian songstress's vocals on an atmospheric, mid-tempo, nu-Balearic rework, before stripping back the beats and layering up glistening guitar flourishes on the sublime Chill Mix. All three versions are wonderfully melodious and picturesque.

Review: Having previously released Orange, Blue, Green and Pink "collections", Eskimo Recordings continues its' colour-coordinated theme with a Yellow compilation. As usual, the collection draws on material from both established names and lesser-known talents, and does a bang-up job joining the dots between hazy Balearic pop, nu-disco, indie-dance and colourful, soft-focus house. While it's all of a high standard, we're particularly enjoying the sparkling dub disco-goes-Balearic flex of Satin Jackets' dub of Du Tonc's "We Can Hold On", the trippy analogue bump of Man Power's "Fisky", the splendid rush of Luxury's baggy disco groover "Breathe", and the camp, Italo-disco thrust of "El Wild" by the brilliantly named Zombies In Miami.

Mechanical Sparrow (Man Power remix) - (8:32) 104 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Bergen, in Norway's frosty North, previously gave the world Telle Recordings, Bjorn Torske and Royksopp. The latter duo was clearly an inspiration for this new single from fellow Bergen pair Atella. In its' original and Atella Club Mix form, "Mechanical Sparrow" boasts the same dreamy, attractive blend of deep synth-pop lusciousness, fey post-indie vocals, and woozy nu-disco elements. It actually sounds a little like it could have been included on Royksopp's legendary Melody A.M full-length, which is high praise indeed. Man Power opts to give the track the full Balearic treatment on his superb remix, eventually dropping in the beats after nearly four minutes of glistening ambient build-up. It's truly a thing of great beauty.

Atella feat Cal
   
Anyone Out There? - (3:35) 106 BPM
Review: Bergen-based twosome Atella has previously been praised for delivering music that draws inspiration from fellow Northern Norwegian artists of old, most notably Erot and Royksopp. We can certainly here some of the latter in the bubbly Scandolearic/synth-pop fusion of "Anyone Out There?", where Cal's breezy vocals wrap themselves around a throbbing, arpeggio bassline and glistening synthesizer melodies. There's a slightly more cosmic, but no less cheery, feel to the EP's other track, "In The Days of the Green (45P Mix)", which boasts extended synthesizer melodies rising above a dreamy nu-disco backing track. Quietly impressive stuff, all told.

Alive - (3:29) 102 BPM
Review: Bergen boys Atella (Johannes Hallanger and Magnus Lauritzen) have previously been compared to fellow city dwellers Royksopp and Erot. On this latest outing for Eskimo Recordings, it's easy to see why. While dreamy, downtempo opener "Ascension" and equally horizontal closer "Transition" are far more ambient in tone than those celebrated artists, you'll still hear cheery synthesizer motifs and a glassy-eyed sense of mid-winter positivity. The EP's two other tracks, "Alive" and "Nothing", do sound more like vintage Telle Records gems, albeit with the kind of sparkling electronic polish you'd expect from Eskimo-released nu-disco cuts. The duo's vocals (see "Nothing" for a standout example) are very Royksopp, too.

Review: Eskimo Recordings' colour-coded compilation series has been running for a while now, serving up previously unheard cuts from the Belgian label's ever-growing family of artists. Typically, there's much to admire on The Purple Collection, the seventh annual instalment in the ongoing series. Highlights include the deliciously cosmic, slo-mo pulse of Atella's "Ascension", the horizontal Balearic disco shuffle of Antenna's "Sparks", the pitched-down, early Chicago house-meets-synth-pop flex of Dan Soloand Future Feelings' "What Else Can I Do" and the Aeroplane style nu-disco positivity of Cavego's "Var I Eyer". Elsewhere, you'll find more up-tempo, nu-disco-fired dancefloor excursions from Simple Symmetry, BOKA and Horixon, while a hugely enjoyable non-stop DJ mix of the selected tracks completes a fine package.
