Ghent based Eskimo Recordings return with The Red Collection, the sixth installment in their color series. Across 13 tracks, The Red Collection segues between left-field electronic pop, disco, and house, taking the listener from the frozen north, to the souks of the middle east and beyond. Icelandic producer Hermigervill opens with the crystalline electronica of "Solitaire" before passing the baton onto Norwegian duo Atella, whose collaboration with Frøder, "Closer To Life", has already been hailed by Clash as a "glittering alt pop belter". Detouring to the Russian city of Kazan, fast-rising producer Antenna delivers an ode to his favorite hookah tobacco in the shape of "Love 66", a breezy slo-mo disco gem filled with Balearic charm. Returning to Scandinavia Philco Fiction's Turid Alida Solberg delivers her solo debut as Else Born, the heartbreaking "This Time/Remember" lauded as a "masterclass in modern electronic pop" by The Line of Best Fit. Japanese based, British producer Max Essa provides a sublime moment of electronic funk with "Your Cathedrals Reimagined". Satin Jackets combine their original brand of diva funk and smooth disco with the refreshing vocals of the talented Niya Wells. LA-based, French duo Blue Motel follow up with their first original material for the label. "Lunch With The King" is divine, French house music with swirling electronic melodies and pulsating bass lines. Greek producer NTEIBINT provides indelible music for both body and soul with "Love". Dutch DJs SHMLSS offer "Train Ride to the Middle East", a psychedelic brew of twisted disco and Middle Eastern sounds. Romanian twins The Gemini Brothers take the listener deep into house territory with the hypnotic bleeps and beats of "Travel Inside". Over to Germany, producer Rey & Kjavik offers "Akya", a mix of throbbing bass, head-spinning synths and chants. Australian born, Munich based TSM, aka This Soft Machine, delivers an outstanding cut of otherworldly disco with a futurist sheen complete with Swedish singer Erik Lindestad, aka The Land Below, on the vocals. The duo Horixon end with "The Beekeeper", featuring vocals from Birsen of one of Belgium's fastest rising acts Hydrogen Sea. Horixon's label friends Atella have reworked the original to create the perfect closing track for The Red Collection. The cover for The Red Collection features a stunning photo by Berlin artist Julia Baier taken from her acclaimed series Water Matters. Includes bonus mix CD of all 13 tracks.
