The mix kicks off with some breezy vocals and then disco fever with a '70s bass-booming groove on Metro Area’s 'Proton Candy'. Tomiie’s own recording, 'Glow', with fun Atari sounds, connects the first two tracks nicely and sets the foundation for the mix with pure mellow deep house which steadies on through the next few tracks.
The sounds get retro again with Dan Berkson’s 'Concept', a fun escapade into the early '80s before a typical John Tejada track enters, making you feel like you’re floating in a giant bubble.
The mix reaches its peak with the next pair of tunes. 'Closer to Me', with its suave vocals, stretching female droning and stirring synths, getting you rousing again. The beats get quicker and the house gets purer with Kerri Chandler’s 'Bar a Thym' before Tomiie concludes the mix with some more neo-disco fun in Spirit Catcher’s 'Code Breaker'.
ES-B has a much lighter feel than its forerunner "ES", a tight progressive mix. With its twilight vocals and vintage mellow bite it is a perfect soundtrack to lounging nights or daytime wash ups on beaches & cafes.
