Mole Listening Pearls is a label for downbeat connoisseurs and atmospheric beat aficionados. Bringing us the best that the European scene has to offer, Mole offerings smack of style and sophistication. And just listening to this collection, you'll start to feel deliciously stylish yourself. Listening Pearls Vol. 3 uses shades of downtempo, drum & bass and house to create a lush, moody soundscape. "Dubtronic" by Nor Elle is a spacey, dubby track taken from his excellent Slapstick album, released in late 2001. Newcomer to the label, Japanese DJ Nob Tee makes an impressive appearance with the hip-hop influenced "Cosmic Pink" that shows off his jazz stylings. A Juan Da Silva remix of Naomi's "Avenue L'Amour" brings some mellow house into the collection, and the reclined drum & bass of the Dualists and Q-Point round out the album. The only disappointing inclusion is Geb.El's "I'm Not In Love" cover. His recent From A Distant Point of View album has much more to offer. Overall though, Listening Pearls 3 creates a cerebral, mellow mood that should encourage you to check out full lengths from the artists included, and to look forward to the coming year of Mole releases. It will amply take care of your aural interior decorating needs.
