Christmas pop tunes are something everyone loves to hate but you can't deny the tiny buzz you get when you hear the first one of the year, even if they have got annoying by the day itself. Having loved the XLR8R Professor Smith's Reggae Xmas mix at the end of 2007, I have always thought it odd that the EDM fraternity never released Christmas themed releases. Here, DJ Koze delivers on the fine A & R work of previous Pampa releases to deliver a very Nathan-not-Nathan Fake track that's got a real yuletide feel, a tad cheesy but interesting enough to be worthwhile.
The Koze track is one to be used sparingly, and may even be overplayed so pungent is its effect, and makes this one of the quirkiest releases I have heard in a while.
