He might live and work just outside of Detroit, Michigan, but Blair French has made some decidedly Balearic music over the last few years, in the process notching up EPs on Claremont 56 and NuNorthern Soul. In its original form (track two), 'Honey Rooftops' has a White Isle-friendly feel, with eyes-closed vocals about "chasing the sun", delay-laden piano motifs and glistening guitar flourishes riding handclap-heavy beats and a warming, undulating bassline. French's short 'Reprise' versions (available in vocal and instrumental variations) beef up the beats to provide a more dub disco-leaning vibe, while the Instrumental mix is a sun-soaked delight. Arguably best of all though is Chris Coco's near nine-minute take, which is a supremely immersive, mid-tempo dub-disco treat with oodles of sunrise-friendly Balearic charm.
