If any musical trend has worked out for the consumer around the turn of the century, the flooding of the electronica market with chill-out albums has to be one of the best. For any fan of the genre, there are literally hundreds of albums featuring this blend of electronic-based styles. Chris Coco DJ Presents: Beach Grooves is a fine addition to this cycle; Coco has a good ear for the genre and avoids stepping into elevator music territory with offbeat inclusions like DJ Rodriguez's "Meet My Sensei." This may not cover any new sonic territory, but it maintains a quality throughout that can be hard to achieve on a mix album. This is a relaxing and lush collection that should fit any chill-out session nicely.
