about

We're still faded off Ichisan & Nakova's Scando-learic "Princesa" and already the Cosmic Pint Glass gets a refill, coming back for another round of double-hopped dancefloor delight. The loopy juice comes courtesy of London's Toby Tobias this time out, who takes the sun, citrus and grape of Eivissa and blends them into a thirst quenching brew with all the right notes. Dedicated to his Ibizan land lady, lifelong hedonist, original White Isle party chick and friend of Grace Jones, "A Room For Babette" takes us out onto the terrace for a swift sundowner before slipping us something extra funky and taking us for a dance. Boasting crunchy effects and the odd explosion, the steady mid tempo beat pays homage to dub pioneers while the future primitive sounds of synth flute, synth sax and synth bass are reminiscent of the early 90s Italian sound or recent rockers from Young Marco or Andras Fox. There's so much sun, sea and sand in this number you'd think it were pressed on a frisbee. Totally under the influence of Toby's intoxicating funk we sneak off to a secluded cover for the late night loving of "Touch Meh". The sexiest and sleaziest cut to fall under Toby's edit spell, "Touch Meh" bounds through bump and grind bass and leisure suit vocals while the London producer cooks up a sizzling streetsoul beat and gets frisky with the space echo - remember to use protection kids. As we float away on a wave of post coital bliss, the hazy sound of lapping waves, dreamy pads and sultry strings starts to sharpen into focus, leading us off on an ocean of pleasure. With Ptaki at the helm, we sweep past seals and dolphins, sea birds and swell, exploring the tropical textures and natural melodies of the deep ocean. A pulsating kick and submerged hats remind us that time still goes on, holding us down before the aquatic keys expand our minds beyond all limits. Drink this one deep and long my friends.
