Image: 1591693 Those generous chaps at Aficionado return with their tenth release, eager to extend your Summer with a 12" ticket to the sun and fun of La Isla Blanca.
As you should know by now, Messrs Moon and Boardman don't do things by halves so rather than hastily booking a scattering of seats on an Easyjet airbus, they've plumped for the luxury and bliss of Club Class on Onyricon air, the airline that gives you Mas y mas.

This pan European consortium, headed up by the production duo of Leo Mas and Fabrice (ably assisted by the writing talent of Italo legends Rago and Farina) formed with the aim of creating the perfect flying experience and their triumph is presented in all its transcendent beauty on the opening track.

The On Air mix of 'Sweet Dream' coasts smoothly through the upper atmosphere on a bed of blurred new age pads and celestial vocals, pure as the sunlit white of the clouds below, tranquil as the heavens above.

As you hit the strip of the Aeroport D'Eivissa, the hedonistic pulse of the Island begins to course through your body, driven by the hypnotic tribalism of Leo & Fabrice's Balearic Militant mix and carrying you back to an unremembered youth of faded club flyers and open air parties.

You're in the mood for a dance and man of the moment Andras Fox is on hand to take your bags and show you a good time. The Antipodean tape peddler brings a dash of drum track exotica to his remix, leaving the Roland out in the sun long enough to fully harness the lilting patter of island rhythms. The fretless bassline is a white walled penthouse but no pavement as the Fox provides executive Balearic, free from the dust of Ibizan streets. As you step into the realm of the senses mystical melodies, spiritual vocals and circular bassline swirl around that rattling rhythm like a Nu Groove B-side lost in Rheji's luggage back in '89.

After all your dancefloor exertion, it's recommended you cool off with a dip in the pool to the echo drenched swelter of B2's Sun mix. The sweet fragrance of dub and shimmer of sun cream on the water are all you remember as you drift gently away
