Various 'Q'

Sven Väth’s Cocoon imprint offers yet another instalment of future-facing productions with new compilation ‘Q’. Boasting 12 forward-thinking, pace-shifting heaters, the latest entry in Papa Sven’s alphabet series fuses acid, trance and house influences with the label’s trademark pumping-techno style. Kamran Sadeghi’s minimal ‘Anno Domini’ is a warm house bubbler, Alex & Digby’s ‘Da Dang’ is freaky with robotic vocals and Sebastian Mullaert’s ‘Ode To Be’ gets melodic before Baba Stiltz closes with the typically surrealist ‘All I Can (About You)’. But it’s Johannes Volk’s ‘Luminance’, Carlos Nilmmns’ ‘Fragile’, Rico Puestel’s ‘If I’d Care More’ and Söllscher & Siech’s ‘Pulse Train’ that are the peak-time highlights. Ben Jolley
