After a four year hiatus, Belgian label Eskimo revive their namesake series with The Glimmers behind the decks.
Eclectic/disco/electro label Eskimo has been finding particular success with its mix CDs lately, issuing volumes by the likes of Optimo, Ivan Smagghe, Headman, Prins Thomas, Radio Slave, Rub N Tug, Recloose, Chromeo and DJ Naughty. Next on the agenda is a continuation of their flagship 'Eskimo' mix series, mixed as always by The Glimmers, the original founders of Eskimo and veterans of the mix CD: Incredibly, 'Eskimo 5' will be their twentieth commercial mix.
The CD features nineteen tracks by diverse names such as Shirley Bassey, Primal Scream, Herb Alpert, LCD Soundsystem, Eugene Record, Trio, Tussle, The Caravan and The Glimmers themselves. Think divas, rock n rollers, europoppers and long-forgotten world music names, i.e. think deep crate-digging.
