“L is for lover, O is for an offer, V you got to venture, E maybe forever.” (Al Jarreau, 1986) 1 Tale of Us & Visionquest - Equilibrio 2 Rampa & Re.You - Yeah Yeah Yeah feat. Meggy 3 Tim Green - Curious Smile 4 Doomwork - Independence 5 Sian - East Of Eden 6 Adam Port - Black Noise 7 Christian Smith - Systemwide 8 Paul Ritch - Wall To Wall 9 Mark Reeve - Planet Green 10 Secret Cinema & Peter Horrevorts - Ana Bola 11 Guy J - Genesis 12 Daniel Stefanik - Everything Goes Green OK, we don’t know whether Grammy-award-winning Jazz icon Al Jarreau has actually already thought of the twelfth Cocoon Compilation when he wrote his 86′ hit.

Meggy” bewitches with a unique sense for soulful vocals without baroque-like embellishment, and with its deep organ riff the dry and bass-heavy Trax House gains unimagined emotional intensity. DJ Tim Green from London, well-known for his releases on Four Twenty, Trapez and last not least for his “Lemon"-EP on Cocoon Recordings in 2011, generates in “Curious Smile” club-related but still shy Pop House from playf
