When they played the Lab, they gifted us with a wealth of vinyl gems that spanned new-school stompers, sultry jazz and soul and a beautifully blended combination of house and disco.

They also play live and merge together tracks from their entire back catalogue, creating an amalgamation of a decade's worth of golden material. We're not joking when we say that Session Victim are two of the smoothest characters in the game and their brand new album further cements that status. 'Listen To Your Heart' is their third album in five years and dare we say it's some of their most accomplished work to date.

The 14 track LP follows much of the same formula as before but incorporates a wider spectrum of sounds, styles and speeds. 'Shadows' is the sort of cut we'd expect to go down in the club whereas personal favourite 'Castle For Sale' is one of the most perfect home-listening, chill-out tracks we've heard in years.

Imagine you're on a beach, either in a hammock or sipping a margarita on the shore. If you pop this album on and close your eyes, you're getting transported straight there. We promise.

For their In Session debut, they've done exactly what we thought they would. They've given us a slice of how they play when they DJ and shown us the thought process that goes into producing their masterpieces. Sit back, relax and become victims of the best session of the year.
