Various Artists Soma Coma III
- Words: Thomas Rees
- Label: Soma
- XLR8R Rating: 8/10
So, you took some pills and danced all night. As you emerge from the club, the sun is already high in the sky, but you still aren't ready for sleep. What you are ready for is some healthy breakfast food and some cocktails to calm your nerves. You walk to a little spot that you know with your friends, and soon find yourself bobbing your head to some epic, synth-drenched chill-out music. Meanwhile, you cannot believe that your mimosa tastes so manna-like, or that your spinach omelet glistens such a vibrant green. Sound familiar? Then so will this surprisingly relaxed affair from Soma, featuring plenty of ponderous, jazzy electronic numbers from the Black Dog, Slam, Alex Smoke, and many of the other usual suspects from the veteran label's roster.
