The indefinable Balearic spirit, sounding like Ibiza on a magical summer evening, tunes flowing from the bars on the sunset strip

Chris Coco

The light of the Balearic Islands is very well reflected while I’m listening to this music. I’m glad to be part of it

Balearic, released June 22nd

Tuesday, 2nd June

A brand new compilation series, exploring the lush, atmospheric, modern-day Balearic sound.

13 radiant, sunset inspired recordings, are meticulously selected and beautifully assembled across Vinyl, CD and Digital formats.

It begins with a gentle, dreamy classic, by Spanish guitarist Joan Bibiloni and ends with a deceptively simple piano piece by Nils Frahm that captures that mesmerizing moment of a legendary sunset in Ibiza. The current ambient sound is defined on productions from Jonny Nash and A.R.T Wilson. Album-only exclusives are provided by super producer Rui DaSilva’s new downtempo project Lisbon Kid, as well as a fun, dubby edit from chillout legend Afterlife. The dream house genre features with tracks from seminal Italian DJ Don Carlos plus a sought-after Japanese rarity from 1991 called Low Tension. Cantoma, aka Phil Mison, DJ from the Cafe Del Mar, provides Alive, a hooky record that won’t let you go and Chris Coco introduces us to his Balearic production project- Nick & Samantha.

Timeless art direction from Peter Chadwick (Popular / This Brutal House) combines with a first-rate photo shoot by David Ryle to produce a heavenly visual identity that encapsulates Summer.

The curators are: Chris Coco, who was part of the original firm that compiled the Real Ibiza compilations throughout the 1990s and currently hosts Melodica, an award winning radio show; and Jim Breese, who was resident DJ at Cafe Mambo Ibiza and currently produces the respected Ku De Ta album series for the beloved Bali based sunset venue.

Our aim is to build a proper compilation series, made with love, that people can rely on, featuring a top quality, diverse selection of music from real artists in the enduring Balearic spirit.
