Nikki Beach, Vol. 1: A Chill Out Session features a number of down-tempo house tracks mixed together into an extended, listener-friendly mix. Some of these producers -- Jazzanova, King Kooba, Ursula Rucker -- are well regarded within the house community and recognized for their quality productions. The music tends to delve into the deeper side of house, sounding often like an Om Records or Naked Music mix. Though it's not a spectacular mix, Nikki Beach is an enjoyable mix that stays true to its "chill out" intentions.
