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.

Review: Ilya Santana, a man whom we can say with some degree of certainty is the Cayman Islands' finest disco export, releases this lovely new EP via Eskimo Recordings. Santana's pedigree is well established - his first ever release came on Daniel Wang's Balihu imprint no less, with subsequent productions seeing the light of day on Tirk, Permanent Vacation and Gomma. He also released two fine 12?s on Eskimo in 2010, namely Burning Jupiter and Erin. "Transborder" is classic Santana tackle - 80s synth work, emotive strings and an immensely pleasing disco thud. Remixes come from two esteemed sources; Minilogue (Mule Electronic, Cocoon, Wagon Repair) and Letherette (Planet Mu, Warp, Ho Tep). For our money it's Letherette's off kilter, twinkling re-rub that resonates the most.
