6LP box version. This is the twelfth edition in the Cocoon label's alphabetically-named yearly Cocoon Compilation series, curated by label-head Sven Väth. Cocoon Compilation L is all about love: the love for electronic dance music, and its well-known and non-famous protagonists that have faithfully accompanied us through night and day for more than 30 years now. And that's why L begins with a proper love song: on "Equilibrio," Tale Of Us have teamed up in the studio with Seth Troxler, Ryan Crosson, Shaun Reeves and Lee Curtiss aka Visionquest. The result is a romantic sonnet for the 21st century, and its dream-like piano is a perfect start to this compilation. It continues with Rampa & Re.You, whose "Yeah Yeah Yeah (feat. Meggy)" bewitches with soulful vocals, a deep organ riff and dry and bass-heavy Trax house. DJ Tim Green generates in "Curious Smile" club-related but still shy pop house from playful keyboard improvisations. Doomwork lustfully engages in the summery space-time continuum with percussive dub, gorgeous sound layers and slow-motion vocals. Graham Goodwin aka Sian is pumping out his subsonic rave signal "East Of Eden" to the front and will thus present true challenges to some club PAs. Adam Port shows gusto for boogie-bass with "Black Noise," while Christian Smith will make even bigger floors shake with his tropical, powerful energy. Two extraordinary, percussion-driven energy infusions are then celebrated by Mark Reeve and DJ Paul Ritch, while Secret Cinema and Peter Horrevorts serve a surprisingly industrial techno. The finale is initiated by Guy J, whose "Genesis" finds a perfect balance between hypnotic melodies and demanding rhythms. The last chord is set by Daniel Stefanik: his more than 10 minute-long "Everything Goes Green" elevates the process of waiting for the right moment with fragmented rhythms, patient enough to intonate grated chocolate instead of exuberant sweetness.
