Leading bargrooves DJ Ben Sowton begins this compilation as Purobeach does its day: A deeply relaxing soundscape awash with soothing beats and unwinding melodies. Expertly selected, this bespoke mix perfectly compliments the poolside calm of Purobeach’s Mediterranean setting – a refined blend of tracks purpose made for such designer slacking.
Amongst them, music from composer Phil Thurston one of The Netherlands’ foremost downtempo producers: Alex Cortiz. If the UK has the likes of Nightmares On Wax; France has Air; Austria has Kruder & Dorfmeister; then Holland has Mr Cortiz. The aforementioned Austrian, Richard Dorfmeister, also makes his mark on disc one clad in his Tosca robes: ‘Chocolate Elvis’ was a mid-‘90s underground hit championed by the likes of Gilles Peterson. Here it appears in its slick Boozoo Bajou Soul Sufferer form.
