Stella Polaris ‘The Second Magic Number’ VARIOUS ARTISTS

Stella Polaris ‘The Second Magic Number’ 

This compilation is from the Danish Electronica festival of the same name that takes place every August. I have been a regular as a DJ at the festival for many years now and this year it was spread over 4 days in 4 different cities with the last day in Copenhagen seeing a crowd of 25,000 people come to see Royksopp, Chicane, Lulu Rouge, Laidback and others perform. The compilation is always a big highlight for me as I rarely know the tracks as they are all exclusive and often made especially for the release. This year my favourite tracks come from: Laidback, Mads Bjorn, Nicka & Asle and Andy Cato. Laidback’s classic from the late 1970’s gets remixed by Peter Visti, who does a fantastic job. Mads Bjorn, who is a very talented singer, songwriter who performed at the festival turns in possibly my favourite track with a mellow instrumental track that reminds me of the likes of: Vangelis, Jan Hammer or even Jean Michel Jarre, timeless! Nicka one of the guys behind the festival gets together with Danish producer Asle and the result is a chunky, down-tempo and bevy Balearic sounding track which leaves ‘Coast Road To San Fransisco’ from one half of Groove Armada, Andy Cato, another great track. I’m also very pleased I got my first original track on the C.D in the form of the Ambient mix of ‘Mirage’ a track I recently did with partner Jonathan Cowan, if you struggle to locate a copy try the website –
