Label: Eskimo Belgium | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 63:43 min | 146 mb
Disco, Nu-Disco, Synth-Pop
Eskimo Recordings' colour-themed compilation series has thus far delivered enjoyable material in spades, with the first three albums providing a mix of sun-kissed nu-disco, woozy nu-Balearica, Italo-tinged chuggers, sumptuous syntyh-pop and atmospheric deep house. The Orange Collection, the fourth volume in the series, continues in this vein. Packed with colourful synths, tactile rhythms and vibrant vocals, highlights include the chiming nu-Balearic pop of This Soft Machine, the cheery Italo revivalism of Tarjei Nygard and Are Foss's "Flog", and the quirky Scandolearic deep house wooziness of Trulz & Robin's collaboration with fellow Norwegian Ost, "Find My Love".
