UK duo Coyote have pretty much become the unofficial Balearic kings of the post 2000 era. Through their releases on Is it Balearic?, Coyote have kept the Spanish islands' tradition alive and kicking, and it's clear that they are mong the few to truly understand what constitutes a Balearic tune and what doesn't. This is not for us to worry about; the only thing we're concerned about is how stunning this new "Cairo" single is, a long, explorative journey of a track that uses a wide array of musical tones to express that inimitable style that can be heard at early mornings on an Ibizian beach. Gorgeous guitar riffs, progressive beats, and that laidback style that has come to define their sound. Check the dub, too, for an extra deep sonic massage.
This ambient classic by British pianist and composer Sacha Puttnam gets some outstanding remixes. It is of course "Abraham's Theme" on Ibiza's Balearic. There's a real responsibility in taking on such an emotional piece, as the label themselves have stated, the chosen remixers have proven themselves as a sure bet. Adrian Sherwood's spacey On-U Sound Dub delicately explores the track, working the subtlest elements and combines it all with his trademark tape delays and reverb. Bartosz's heavenly, chill-out journey combines classical elements with bass and jazzy beats: all respectfully nodding to '90s downtempo. It is said to be a secret weapon of sorts, at the label's sunset gigs and that's 'conjuring up that magical Hollywood moment all around the world'.
