<EDM> It’s been two years since P&P as they are affectionately known, released Passport, their debut full length album. Sure they also had Passport 2.0, a remix album but One Night Only is their official follow up full length offering. What I really liked about Passport was their ability to combine some deep techy dance floor elements into an album that was essentially aiming at radio play and commercial success. On One Night Only they’ve gone for straight up radio edit EDM which I think is the right thing for them to do to achieve their aspirations of a hit record. So what of the new 14 tracker? Whilst I like the quirky freshness of Passport, One Night Only admittedly has a more focused and cohesive feel, meaning that if you like track one, you’ll probably like the rest too. Not that they lack ideas, to the contrary. It’s just that they seem to have now settled on a sound that works for them and kept to this. The variation comes in the impressive list of vocalists that include the likes of Lakota Silva, Locnville, Jimmy Nevis, Ard Matthews, Toya Delazy and Louise Carver among others, a testament to the status Pascal & Pearce have achieved as consummate producers. The album also includes a bonus disc with no less than eight remixes done by P&P.
