A gentleman who needs little introduction is the infamous Jose Padilla and if you’ve either witnessed one of his sunset sets, or indeed lisented to one of his numerous CD compilations then you can guess what you’re about to receive. Which is, of course, tranquil blissed-out music espousing atmosphere rather dancefloor clique. The title track undulates in a deeply satisfying way as gentle layers of voice, flute and percussion underpin it all close to your heart, with Mark Barrott’s production shinning. The Bubble Clubs In Loving Memory Mix provides a more hypnotic experience with haunting pads and delays comfortably pacing themselves, while the excellent Wolf MÃ¼ller Water versions add a funkier sensibility to the equation, and one which works supremely well.

Inxec & Julia Govor
Ai Need You
Delivering yet another devilishly charged release Superfreq maintain the tension with this latest from Inxec & Julia Govor. The Original version is all sassy, funky electronics set against a dazzling array of twisted effects and gorgeous, breathy voices all of which simply stuns. Great remixes come from Derek Marin whose dark, trippy rendition contains a classic House B-line and all sorted accompanying percussion. Plus, Meandisco who supply even weirder synths and pulverising beats. Leaving, Noel Jackson’s more sensuous remix to complete with warmer meanderings.

However, its second track and the very excellent, Drop The Beat that relentlessly grabs your attention with killer Chicago styled beats booming, coupled with commanding vocals and insistent percussion lines – Party Monster!
