Kicking off Christmas release week for 2009 is Kahvi regular - Alkor. "Still before the sunrise" is a dreamy escapade into a surreal sunrise approaching on the horizon. Six tracks of excellence in the usual Alkor vein, with swirling pads, solid basslines and all the addictive ingredients we're used to.
With just over 30 minutes playing time, this gentle introduction to a week of classic and strong releases will ease you into the rhythm.
Track of choice is track 6 - one day above the clouds. The kind of track to send a chill down your spine every time you give it a listen, yet oddly familiar in a way?
