The appearance of a fresh Sven Vath Sound of the Season mix is fast becoming as great a Christmas tradition as terrible office parties, family arguments and Morecombe and Wise repeats. As with the 17 previous editions, this 18th volume is built around tracks that did the business at Cocoon's annual Ibiza residency. While there naturally darker moments and forays into minimalist techno space, for the most part Vath has delivered a bustling, big room-friendly mix packed with bombastic techno anthems, overlooked gems and slept-on cuts. There's a great flow across the two discs and the track listing, which contains killer cuts from Eddie Fowkes, Villa H2H (an outfit that includes Ricardo Villalobos and Chez Damier), Aubrey, Inigo Kennedy and KiNK, is particularly on-point.
