This time of year, you might feel as lonely as a glass bauble hanging from a Xmas tree in a pine forest; not with Cielo's gravitational pull to the dancefloor. 

It's safe to say that Be Adult's grown up approach to festive boogie is mesmerizing at times and there's two versions of 'Gravity' gowing on here.  The original has a big feel of foreboding underneath the synth wispers and twinkly guitar and piano.

The Domingo & Loveclub remix gets a short vocals interlude and is more club orientated which is a great option to have.

And, as an added treat, if you recall the opening track to the label's birthday compilation back in March, '7 Anniversary' (see review HERE), under pressure from island steel drum spiritual types, there's a super groovey 'Nectarine (Extended Retouch)' included (DJs; watch out for the jumpy ending). 

And whilst on the subject of compilations, if you're after the warm glow these 12 tracks give you at this chilly time of year, there's some real winter cheer with 'Winter Tale' that comes out a week before.

We've really enjoyed Be Adult Music this year with The 8 Beat Quartet's 'Nu Modern Sounds' (see review HERE), MRSFLV's 'Beautiful Others' (see review HERE) and the double A of Vincenzo 's 'Extrasolar / The Witching Hour' (see review HERE) so I hope well be hearing much more from them in 2024.
