Folha De Jurema
22 Sep 17
from $1.97
Review: Nicola Cruz returns with another spellbinding fusion of Afro Brazilian charm in the form of "Folha De Jurema". With the dusky dulcets of Arteria FM, the dusty strums of Spaniol and sultry plucks of Salvador Arguaya, Cruz commands a decorated cast as they explore a mystical new vision of a traditional Brazilian folk standard. The remixes are just as warm and alluring as Xique Xique adds a little steel string tension, Crussen maps out a chugging Scandinavian odyssey and Rio's Carrot Green brings us back home to the motherland with a poignant, hazy flutter of house soul. Stunning.
New Energy
29 Sep 17
from $1.97
Review: If you were judging Kieran Hebden's 11th Four Tet studio album merely on the way it's presented, you'd immediately think he'd spent the last two years immersed in early '90s ambient house albums. While it's unlikely he's done that, it's fair to say that New Energy does owe a debt to classic electronica sets from that period. For all the exotic instrumentation and subtle nods to post-dubstep "aquacrunk" experimentalism and chiming, head-in-the-clouds sunrise house, the album feels like a relic of a lost era. That's not meant as a criticism - New Energy is superb - but it is true that his choice of neo-classical strings, gentle new age melodies, sweeping synthesizer chords and disconnected vocal samples would not sound out of place on a Global Communication album.

Review: Since first popping up on Erased Tapes at the tail end of the last decade, Kiasmos has delivered some notably picturesque and atmospheric music that defies easy categorization. The Icelandic duo is at it again on Blurred, an EP that gleefully fuses intricate electronic melodies and chord progressions with a variety of unfussy, dancefloor-friendly grooves. Highlights are plentiful, from the fluid Nils Frahm pianos, bubbly electronics and locked-in beats of "Blurred" and melancholic, string-laden shuffle of "Jarred", to the twinkling, yearning deep house shimmer of "Paused". Bonobo provides a headline-grabbing remix of "Blurred" full of his usual expansive instrumentation and tactile tech-house beats, while Stimming gently beefs up the intricate and blissful "Paused".

Review: Since November 2004, YNFND have pursued 'drunken-music fanatic freedoms' under this name: an abbreviation of You Need Friends Not Diskos. They hold concerts, parties and other forms of cultural research in and around Rostock in Northern Germany. On offer here is the best of both worlds, well.. several: electronic dance and world/jazz and punk. Get down for a debut full length straight outta 'Kundistan'. Eastern exoticism, shimmering digital electronics and classical instrumentation all collide wonderfully on this full length. It was honed via their many live performances across Germany's finest venues, including Kater Blau and Klunkerkranich in Berlin, Hamburg's Golem and festivals including Greenland Festival and 3000Grad. A hypnotic yet captivating listen from start to finish.

Review: For his last appearance on Running Back, Fort Romeau unashamedly paid tribute to the legendary Fairlight CMI sampling computer. On this follow-up, he turns his attention to another legendary piece of kit from the early 1980s: the more affordable E-Mu series of sampling keyboards/digital workstations. Naturally, the assembled "Emulators" are rich in vibrant and colourful synthesizer motifs, crunchy drum machine hits, elastic basslines and nods towards the kind of club-ready instrumental synth-pop jams that many would consider "Balearic". Highlights-wise, we're particularly enjoying the full-throttle hustle of "Emu" (think Chicken Lips meets early Italian dream house), the glistening ambient rush of "Emu III" and the undulating, acid-flecked cheeriness of digital-only bonus cut "Emu IV". That said, the thrillingly percussive "Bonus Birdy Beats" version of "Emu III" is pretty smart, too.

Review: International Feel's mini album series seems to explore the space between world beat, balearic and library music. Here, L.A's Pharaohs 'have imagined a place far from the city' on their first release for Mark Barrott's esteemed imprint. Co-founder Sam Cooper has stated that we were influenced by a surfing book by photographer Michael Kew and that a lot of the music was inspired by his travels in the South Pacific and its imagery: an idea of what it would sound like if they were actually there themselves. Cooper met co-founder Ale Cohen in Amoeba Music and the pair started jamming in the late noughties. Diego Herrera (aka Suzanne Kraft) was an original member but now resides in Europe, preventing him from collaborating, moving forward. But still, some of his playing can be heard on the album. Casey Butler aka Stellar Rahim, is the fourth member, who studied composition at CalArts.

Review: Geneva (formerly Amsterdam) based Night Noise serve up a new one by Mark Cooper's Bedford Falls Players: a collective of DJ's heavily influenced and inspired by the early acid house and balearic experience including Terry Farley, Justin Drake, Alan MacKenzie and Rob Webb amongst others. On "Moon: Chapter 1" (Agent Cooper's "Peak" Time Warm Up mix) it's an interesting genre defying one, we must say. Gloomy dub chords soar over cavernous beats and a howling EBM style arpeggio. There's some dark and reductionist Italo business up next on "Chapter: 3" (Agent Cooper's Black Lodge Excursion) which will appeal to fans of the Correspondant sound. It gets remixed up next - they save the best for last with Duncan Gray of Tici Taci's deep and lo slung balearica rendition.

Review: Dutch production trio Yor Kultura are becoming rather well known on the European festival circuit for their dynamic live shows, in addition to releases on a who's who of labels such as Multi Culti , Earthly Delights, Lump Records and Sol Selectas. Now for Berlin based Laut & Luise we have the gorgeous Hypnosis EP and it's a fitting title, as first two cuts "Aurora" and the title track prove. These esoteric and polyrhythmic journeys are optimised for major trance induction - the latter employing a captivating Afro vibe. "Youtan" employs the same sensibilities on this lo-slung effort that is reminiscent of Toto Chiavetta or Bodhi Satva. Finally the lovely "Zagora" goes for a deep and cosmic flavoured vibe, rounding off this EP nicely.
Kompakt/Total 17
01 Sep 17
from $1.97
Review: Having reached its seventeenth volume, the Total series is making its transition from adolescence into adulthood, but it has lost none of its youthful charms. Like previous editions, it features highlights from the German label's recent releases - including anthems from Laurent Garnier and The Orb - alongside some new gems. The latter category sees Thomas/Mayer deliver the tripped out, acid playfulness of "25", while Kompakt regular Superpitcher chimes in with the angelic vocals and skipping groove of "In My Head". Speaking of otherworldly moments, Jurgen Paape's "Always Disko" is a spaced out disco track from another dimension. Trends and fads come and go, but Kompakt will forever remain a constant, defined by its Total series.

Te Faz Bem - (5:39) 102 BPM

Played by: Kenneth bager
Review: While Kenneth Bager's Music For Dreams imprint hails from the chilly Danish borders, its roots are most definitely planted in something a lot more Balearic. Since the late 00s, the label has been a stronghold for all things loose and housey, not to mention sun-kissed; new deutant Copenema makes his debut here with a delightfully peaceful hybrid tune, bridging the gap between house, electronica and lounge, ending up in some brilliant corners of the wider dance spectrum. A quirky, utterly meditative groove made of organic instruments and chilled-out waves drives a delightful blend of spacey vocals and new age vibes to the stars. This is one hell of a headspace session, right here...
Primary Colours
29 Sep 17
from $1.97
Review: After a pair of lush, vibrant bundles of harmonies for the International Feel label, Private Agenda bursts into full colour with this new pack of Balearic glory for the endlessly pleasing Needwant imprint. "Sienna" opens the scene beautifully with a gloriously pale-faced drum machine jam, which evaporates neatly into the starry soundscapes of "Ochre". "Umber" provides calm and tranquility thanks to blissful ambient drones sounding like whale calls, while "Cadium" manages to slot in a fine flurry of piano keys for the downtime, and Seahawks' envisioning of "Sienna" takes us right to the heart of Southern Spain's infamous island flavours. Gorgeous.
Listen To Your Heart Part Three
21 Jul 17
from $1.97
Review: Apologies for banging on about this, But Session Victim's recent Listen To Your Heart album is one of the best Balearic-minded house sets we've heard this year. It goes without saying, then, that this third sampler EP is packed full of playable goodness. While they've naturally included an obligatory slow jam (wonderfully dreamy Balearic beats cut "Castle For Sale") and a rush inducing, gradually building Balearic soundscape (EP highlight "Thermal Explorer"), the other two tracks jostle for position in the "best for peak-time plays" stakes. Choose between the tactile nu-disco/deep house fusion of "Head Over Heels" - all sweeping strings, bubbly synth bass and twinkling piano flourishes - and "Almost Midnight", a wonderful trip into disco deep house territory that's as rich and musically expansive as they come.

Review: There must be something in the water near Juju & Jordash's studio, because they have never made a bad or even average record. Sis-boom-bah! is their fourth studio album and serves to reinforce how consistent they are. Irrespective of whether they are laying down noodle jazz workouts like the wonderful "Herkie" or off centre house grooves - check the vocal sampling, funk bass of "Rah Rah" - the pair's jams are delivered with effortless brilliance. There are dance floor tracks of sorts included here as well, particularly the lean groove of "Back Tuck Basket Toss" and the dubbed out drums of "Deadman", but like all their best work, this album's strength lies in its sprawling, freeform approach to electronic music.
Ali Kuru (Remixes)
LENG 036
07 Jul 17
from $1.97
Review: Turkey's Ali Kuru specialises in slow, textured and deep beats with sultry, exotic overtones. His forthcoming LP "Egzotik" has elements of the type of noirish Mediterranean vibes peddled by Guy Gerber or David August. Here we have a selection of remixes of mainly album tracks. First up Italian cosmic legend Daniele Baldelli and Dario Piana team up for a killer electronic body music remix of "Ashoka". Next, Craig Bratley delivers a moody, minimal rework of "Zurna", "Return To Paradise" is turned into a traditional clippety-clop clap-along by Nicola Cruz and lastly "Lost Bedouin", reworked by Peter Power, recalls a million 90s chillout rooms.
Square One
07 Jul 17
from $1.97
Played by: Lurid Music
Review: Bjorn Torske and Prins Thomas finally get back together to make music. Torske is a figurehead and elder of the electronic music scene in Norway, inspiring and laying the foundation for producers like Lindstrom and Todd Terje. Torske and Thomas' relationship goes back to the mid 90's, where they supposedly bonded over a shared passion for oddball disco, dub and Detroit techno. This album is in many ways comes full circle, where they make music together for the first time. Square One is a collection of loose, abstract and freeform avant-disco jams, a parallel world disco perhaps? Either way it is a labour of love and a sound they both have travelled towards for many years. The album was recorded live in Oslo, in the spring of 2015 with both artists manning an instrument each in each overdub, piling the layers of sounds on top of each other. And here they finally are: at Square One.
Afro Damba
MC 033
19 Jun 17
from $1.97
Review: Irishman Peter Power has become quite a well known figure in Berlin since moving there several years ago and has been one of the figures behind some of the city's now legendary haunts like Kleine Reise (RIP) and the successful Loftus Hall/Bertrams: which has had a great run thus far too. Now the man behind the Ufordia imprint returns with his second outing on Thomas Von Party's Multi Culti, which itself has also made the move to the German capital. Power delves deep into the exotic here, borrowing heavily from African music and getting very atmospheric and esoteric in the process. The life affirming raindance of "Adama Waro" (original mix) is certainly geared for some moments of truth on the dancefloor. Equally spiritual is the traditional percussion based journey of "Mori Baka" (original mix). There's some great remixes by label manager Dreems and Bucharest duo Khidja: the latter's contributions which shine the most, particularly on their balearica infused/Second Summer of Love sounding remix of "Dansakoni".
Saw You For The First Time
28 Jul 17
from $1.97
Review: Having set his stall out via a string of quietly impressive singles over the last two years, deep house producer Laurence Guy is ready to unleash his debut album. Saw You For The First Time is a typically rich and hazy affair, with the Church regular making use of various dusty, jazz-flecked samples and analogue-sounding electronic instruments across a ten-track set that mixes rolling, club-ready fare with occasional bouts of downtempo introspection (see "Claudi", "Into" and the deliciously saucer-eyed "Orchard Road"). Guy makes great use of guest vocalist Steve Spacek on the sumptuous space jazz warmth of "Drum is a Woman", while Ishmael makes his presence felt on "Anchor", where twinkling pianos and dreamy chords ride a fluid, floor-friendly deep house groove.
The Golden Ravedays 7
TGR 007D
28 Jul 17
from $1.97
Played by: Kenneth bager
Review: The seventh piece of The Golden Ravedays puzzle introduces two further tracks of the sound adventure that Superpitcher is taking us on this year. Featuring "Andy", made in memory and admiration of a pioneer and his works. David Bowie's lyrics about Andy Warhol mirror the groovy yet deeply moving emotion of this track. The music Aksel imagined here is a pleasant cruise in itself and once you wake up from it, you will for sure think of Warhol. Also worthy of mention is "Yves". The track starts with a long introduction of harp music and then gently evolves into one of the more fragile and poetic pieces he has created thus far for the album. What is clear in this music is that there is an intense understanding of the suffering Yves Saint Laurent lived throughout his life as an artist and fashion designer. As only Superpitcher can, he translated that emotion into this beautiful and touching piece of music.
Find Your Rhythm
RGRV 019
17 Mar 17
from $1.97
Review: Three years on from their last full-length excursion - the fine Borough 2 Borough on Delusions of Grandeur - Craig Smith and The Revenge return with their third 6th Borough Project album. Predictably, it's a fine set, with the duo tweaking their now familiar blueprint - think sample heavy, Balearic-minded deep house built around killer grooves and impeccable production - to guarantee a slightly more eclectic listening experience. So, while there are moments of locked-in dancefloor hypnotism - see "The Weight" and acid-gospel thump of "Tainted Dub" - they're accompanied by trips into wide-eyed, loved-up two-step territory (brilliant closer "Back Where It All Began"), seductive, synth-heavy dreaminess (Paul Joseph hook-up "Find Your Rhythm"), intoxicating downtempo chuggers ("Someday"), and much more besides.
Seaside Tune
27 Jul 15
from $1.97
Review: A Vision Of Panorama cooks up another multi-course Balearic banquet. This time he's flexed his generous, soft-centred sonics on Mellophonia. Each cut is a breezy, warm synth odyssey - highlights include the groove-heavy strutter "Heartbeat" (thanks to its loose sloppy bassline and confident synth shots) and the piano-tickling finale "Mosaic Xylos" (thanks to its flighty broken drums and arpeggiated insistency). The only thing to be wary of here is the misleading title: there is more than one seaside tune here, they're all primed for the beach... And pretty much any other activity or location you have planned this summer.
Balearic 3
12 Jun 17
from $1.09
Review: Here's a glorious selection of 12 bright and sun-drenched moments destined to be heard daily at the world's coolest beach clubs this summer and inevitably soundtracking a million gorgeous sunsets in Ibiza. This edition features exclusives aplenty. There are two album-only tracks; Tommy Awards gets an Ambient remix from Balearic's Jim Breese. Then The Madrigal blasts off with 'Ride To The Moon,' a completely unique track that's refreshing to hear. Three tracks were previously unavailable digitally, including the debut from Nancy Noise, Olefonken's spacey remix of Hubbabubbaklubb, and Steve Cobby's tropical-jazz remix of Penelope Antena's Tradewinds. Other highlights include Cantoma's 'Abando,' plus an incredible, modern interpretation of the 80's classic Southern Freeez from Paul Murphy. BALEARIC 3 captures the ineffable spirit of Ibiza - perfectly accompanying that unique moment when the golden sun meets the gleaming sea. It's destined to be a classic, go-to album you'll reach for again and again.
Silent Stars
12 May 17
from $1.97
Review: Having spent much of 2016 focusing on the 20th anniversary of his impressive Freerange label, Jamie "Jimpster" Odell returns with his long-awaited sixth full-length, his first album since 2013's much admired Porchlight & Rocking Chairs. As you might expect, Silent Stars is a musically expansive affair, with the producer's usual floor-friendly deep house workouts being accompanied by tracks that pay homage to starry jazz-funk (brilliant opener "Migrations"), synthesizer-heavy new age ambient (the wonderful "Sylvanshine"), loose and languid Balearica (Jinadau collaboration "The Sun Comes Up"), Floating Points Ensemble style jazz ("Tau Tona"), modern soul ("Everytime") and even a touch of Osunlade style tribal bounce ("Silent Stars"). In other words, it's superb.

Fragments Of A Season

Played by: Kenneth bager
Review: Emotional Response brings together two esteemed artists as they continue to celebrate five years of top-drawer releases. Alexis Georgopoulos and Jefre Cantu-Ledesma aren't necessarily household names, but their respective careers have touched on many a respected project in a variety of fields. Here, the pair turn in some wonderfully expressive compositions played out across all manner of organic instrumentation. The richness of the production and the highly developed ideas embedded within this gorgeous LP should resonate for a long time to come, not least because the pieces are all so easy on the ears. From Steely Dan precision to Balearic lilt, this is proper players music played by proper players.
Inevitable Ending
SOL 042
26 Sep 16
from $1.97
Review: The latest EP on Sol Selectas sees deep house sort Hraach join forces with fellow Ready Mix contributor Armen Miran, whose recent Lost Found EP was an altogether more Balearic excursion. Given the common ground between the duo, it's unsurprising to find that "Inevitable Ending" is a drowsy and atmospheric deep house affair, with twinkling, xylophone style instrumentation and Middle Eastern melodies riding a smooth house groove. On "Aldebarran", the pair ratchets up the atmosphere a notch or two, with Miran contributing the melancholic piano flourishes that perfectly compliment Hraach's chunky deep house groove. The EP closes with something of an epic; a 14-minute remix of "Inevitable Ending" from Viken Arman and Goldcap that offers a chugging, psychedelic taste of the exotic.
O.N.G. Versions
02 Oct 17
from $1.97
Review: Leipzig label Kann has gathered together an impressive cast of producers on this remixed version of hotly tipped producer Falke's fantastic - if a little overlooked - album, O.N.G. In keeping with the original set, the remixes are generally hard to pigeonhole. While Vakula's version of "Particle World" is little less than a loved-up, ultra-positive dream house treat, it's a little harder to categorize the dusty samples, sparse but hypnotic percussion and gentle acoustic guitars that mark out engin Eteber's beautiful rework of "Live in a Bubble". Elsewhere, Perm provides a spacey, Detroit inspired techno revision of the same track, while Samo DJ steals the show with a gently pulsating, synth-heavy, slo-mo re-make of "Stream".
28 May 17
from $1.97
Review: Kelela's Hallucinogen isn't technically a new release. In truth, all of these tunes have been out already on Warp; the first part of the release featured all the original cuts while the second focused solely on remixes. However, there's just something right about releasing them together under one roof...the timing of this thing is just right given the artist's recent touring schedule. Her style is what we would call 'SDM', or 'Seductive Dance Music', which basically means a gorgeous blend of electronica and r&b vocalism, all tied together by that unmistakable Warp charm. Fans of artists like Throwing Shade will appreciate tunes like "A Message" or "Rewind", not to mention other pearls like the lead tune "Hallucinogens". The remixes all offer different and equally enticing.
