Summer Sol VII is Sol Selectas way of marking the summer solstice aka the year’s longest day of sunlight.
This year’s Summer Solstice was on the 21st of June and that was the day of release for the epic 26-track compilation from a variety of different producers.
Along with a selection of usual suspects, the compilation also welcomes Sol Selectas debuts from artists such as Safar (FR), Murmusica and Amour Propre.
Sabo leads the charge with the opening track, which is a downtempo cut with hypnotic vocal chants and trippy sitar chords. It’s a dramatic opener from the Sol Selectas label boss and features vocals from the label artwork designer Helia Jamali.
Some of the other tracks are from Goldcap and Yamil who are both well-known for their previous Sol Selectas contributions.
All of the tracks have strong percussion elements and an enchanting atmosphere that will radiate warmth across a dance floor to match the concept of this EP.
The compilation once again delivers everything Sol Selectas fans could hope for, and no doubt the vast majority will buy the whole release rather than selected tracks. Usually, this Sol Selectas releases charts high on download stores such as Beatport, and there is no reason not to expect the same from this one.
