Review: Having sold out in record time a couple of months back, Phil Mison's latest album as Cantoma - an all-star affair featuring a wealth of guest vocalists and musicians - has been rapidly reissued, this time with a colour insert. Musically, "Into Daylight" is sweet and soft-focused, with the Balearic veteran prioritising seductively shuffling samba beats, dewy-eyed vocals, gentle melodies, dubby basslines and tactile instrumentation (think meandering trumpet solos, acoustic guitars, flutes, twinkling Rhodes solos and Pat Metheny style jazz guitar). It's the kind of album that warms you like a hug, soothing mind and body whilst providing enough slow-motion excitement to reward repeat listens.

  13. Haunted Jukebox (4:15)
Review: Second time around for Saint Etienne's 2012 album "Words and Music by Saint Etienne", a typically breezy, summery and ear-pleasing affair in which Bob Stanley, Pete Wiggs and Sarah Cracknell delivered a suitably glossy, up-beat take on synth-pop that arguably owes more to the Pet Shop Boys and their own early works than some of their more celebrated albums. Highlights are plentiful, from sunny opener "I've Got Your Music" and the string-laden swell of "The Last Days of Disco", to the largely acapella "Record Doctor", baggy and Balearic "Twenty Five Years" and the attractively jangling "Haunted Jukebox". Pop perfection tailor made for sunny days and lazy afternoons: don't sleep!

  2. I Can't Sleep (Sol Levante remix By Leo Mas & Fabrice) (6:36)
  3. I Can't Sleep (Pete Herbert remix) (7:17)
Review: Japanese Balearic crew Okinawa Delays have long been friends with Tokyo-based Brit Max Essa, while the latter previously remixed one of their tracks for Mudd's Claremont 56 label. Now they've taken their musical partnership to a whole new level by offering up their first joint single. In its original form, "I Can't Sleep" adds an attractive female vocal to a sparkling, ear-catching backing track rich in bubbly nu-disco bass, White Isle-ready piano riffs, swirling synthesizer pads, typically Japanese melodies and mid-tempo beats that boast just the right amount of dancefloor weight. The accompanying remix package is strong, too, with a wonderful dream house interpretation by Italian veterans Leo Mas and Fabrice being joined by a funky Balearic disco take from nu-disco master Pete Herbert.

  1. Acid Rain (6:20)
  2. Acid Rain (Prayer version) (4:07)
  3. America (2:58)
Review: Grammy award winning sound engineer Chris Lord Alge produced the music that makes up this Acid Rain release back in 1986. It has been somewhat forgotten an or overlooked ever since, but now Thank You rightfully bring it back to the fore. The tunes have a real sense of character and include two versions of an oddball leftfield downtempo chugger. One is a wild flurry of machine sounds and occult synths and the other gets even more unhinged. As well as those is a patriotic America monologue that comes with a superbly overblown and emotional piano that is best taken with tongue firmly in cheek.

  13. Eddy La Viny - "Havan' Hamac" (3:43)
Review: BeachFreaks Records co-founder Charles Bals is a man who knows about records - and obscure European ones at that. Club Meduse, his first compilation for Spacetalk (a label with a track record for producing these kinds of killer, crate-digging comps), is loosely designed as the soundtrack to life around a mythical (IE imaginary) Cote D'Azure resort. Musically, it gathers together the kind of hazy, soft-focus and life-affirming cuts that you would have heard at resort discos in the mid-to-late 1980s. Suffice to say that Bals' selections tend towards the rare, magical and undeniably Balearic, from the glassy-eyed, cascading jazz-funk of the Keyboys and loved-up post-boogie sweetness of Gemini's "Take a Chance", to the sparkling Euro-electro of Miss' "Hip Hop" and pitched-down drum machine chug of Gigi Flag's "Nymphomaniac (Instrumental)". Essential.

  1. Kenkou - "Everlasting Dreams" (Calm Still Dreaming mix) (11:08)
  2. Deadbundy - "Lorenz" (Calm extended mix) (7:06)
Review: When it comes to sumptuous, sunrise-ready ambient, deep house and downtempo jams, there are few finer exponents of the art forms than Fukagawa Kivotaka AKA Calm - a Japanese producer whose work has been sound-tracking stunning sunsets since the turn of the '90s. Here Hell Yeah Recordings shine a light on two of his numerous killer remixes. On side A he delivers a stunning re-imagining of Kenkou's 2004 track "Everlasting Dreams", slowly building up from a lengthy Spanish guitar-sporting ambient intro to gentle, Latin-tinged deep house bliss over 11 atmospheric and evocative minutes. Over on the flip, he delivers his interpretation of Deadbundy's "Lorenz", serving up a chugging, mid-tempo cosmic disco-meets-deep house take flecked with jazzy guitar licks and propelled forwards by a suitably druggy electronic bassline.

Review: It's been three years since their last LP, but ESCAPE marks Peaking Lights's sixth full length record overall. By now, the Californian psych-dub duo are masters of lo-fi and dreamy pop, escapist grooves that feel somehow retro and familiar yet also fresh and forward looking. It's music for cruising down the motorway in hot sun, or for zooming from day into night on a sun kissed terrace. It's loveable homemade DIY stuff with percussive loops and motorik kicks making for powerful and dynamic grooves that really move you. Add in hypnotic and haunting vocal hooks and you have a fantastic record.
