Various Artists - Es Vive / Base Bar Ibiza 2005Hailed as the "excessively cool poolside listening" with a good measure of summer anthems thrown in, the new Hed Kandi compilation hits the streets.

Spread over three CDs, there's a tune for everyone, plus there's the BodyRockers' "I Like The Way" for the really fussy ones. The selection of tracks flows effortlessly, despite the slightly dreary, remix-heavy CD2.

Out of the 37 tracks the ones that stand out most are on CD1. The dreamy opener "Reflections" by Opus 15 and the gorgeous "Little Things" by James Bright feat. Rachel Lloyd are just a couple of examples.

"Es Vive" is guaranteed to give you that holiday feel even if you're not going anywhere this year.
