Review: The third release on the emergent Dreamtime label finds Bobby Bricks and Miskotom sharing precious wax space with their own takes on laid back Balearic house. Bricks is up first, laying down a laid back house chugger propelled by fluttering synth lines that have spent time soaking up plenty of vitamin D. "Amazon Blue" does away with the drums for much of the tune, letting the new age synth tones do all the work before a mellow set of percussion comes loping in. Miskotom has a more nocturnal feel at work on "Star Master", but it's no less plush in its execution, while "Ad Lucem" ramps up fretless bass licks and plastic flute tones for another blissful excursion onto the astral plane.
Review: Daniel Saxon Judd is plenty prolific as Sorcerer, turning out albums and EPs in abundance on Tirk some ten years ago not to mention more recently landing on Is It Balearic? and Real Balearic, two labels that tell you exactly where his mood is pitched. This five-track EP for Dreamtime keeps the island mindset at the forefront, from the slow and easy "Baked Wave" to the more limber strum-funk of "Drop Shadow". There's some wobbly boogie to enjoy on "Mango Messenger" and MOR grooves of the highest order on "Zoned For Fun" - it's a record swimming in smooth.
