Check out this very cool EP from Octogen (aka Glasgow producer Marco Bernardi). It's not really a pastiche of the Mike Oldfield classic Tubular Bells, more a doffing of one's cap to the electronic music pioneer.

Of it's four tracks the last one ("Influential Perfection") stands out for me because it reminds me of The Cure's Lovesong (in particular the bit at 3:56). So while the first three numbers present this lovely, bubbly warmth and effortlessly massage your ears with their hazy summer radiance track 4 is the one stands out.
