The Vancouver house renaissance continues. 1080p veterans Bobby Draino (aka Journeymann Trax) and D. Tiffany come together to kill 'em softly with three tracks of chilled-out ambient house. The duo combine forces on the title track "Arctic Travel," a total viber with icy pads and highly reverberated synths that ride a top a bumping PNW groove, then go for dolo with a solo track a piece. Bobby Draino goes in with the acid on "Another Vibe (Lolo's House Mix)," freaking the 303 line while adding 'nuff percussion and a playful synth melody to push the feeling on. D. Tiffany closes it out with the mellow "Green T," a track the pretty much embodies the Vancouver house sound. Fans of Pender Street Steppers, Mood Hut, Aquarian Foundation, maple syrup, poutine, etc. need this in their life.
