9/10 Andrew Customer review, 4th August 2014
This LP really is a treat, it should have a pretty broad appeal to fans of Balearic Beats, Disco, Deep House and beyond. Those that enjoy the Gallic grooviness of St.Germain, Air and even Daft Punk could do worse than checking this out. Yet this isn't just a bunch of filtered french house tracks. There is depth provided from nu jazz flourishes, touches of boogie, disco as well as enough sunshine in the grooves to make this suitable for soundtracking laidback barbecue sessions, sunset soirées as well as providing just enough ooomph to get you going for the night ahead.
The track titles alone give you a clue as to the music, Jovan Freak, Freak D'Espace, En Plein Air all give clues as to the cosmic disco waiting to get going upon pulling the record from within the die cut sleeve. Whilst there are clearly gallic influences, this record would feel equally at home soundtracking an exclusive Adriatic affair, with its shades of Italo house and disco. All that said, there is a deeper feel to these tracks, they aren't just throwaway or forgettable holiday tunes. I certainly feel that I'll be reaching for this record for sometime to come. Give your summer the soundtrack it deserves and add this to your play list.
