Prins Thomas here with the b-side of 'FEEL SPACE'
'ROMA e6' mixing up rhumba piano lines
with beautiful Spanish guitar
gentle percussion & shoaring hippy-prog electric guitar.
The track slowly builds up & then melts away again,
leaving a felling of blissfull balearic sunshine behind

In the days when Louie Vega was still producing music and not trash he created masterpieces.Along with his partner Kenny Dope they left behind a legacy of remixes original material and compilations.They are The Masters At Work.Or more exact they were..Back at those glorious days they produced songs like ''Pienso En Ti''.Featuring some astonishing guitar work from Louis Salinas.More in the vein of the Nuyorican Soul Lp than their house productions "Pienso En Ti'' stands out as one of the many highlights of their career.Imagine i have both copies on vinyl..Just in case.
Louis Salinas-Pienso En Ti(Nuyorican Soul Mix)
Originally coming from Throbbing Gristle this ''couple'' produced some prototype electro during the 80's.Their biggest hit was October Lovesong.This piece comes from their album ''Songs Of Love and Lust'' and is called Walking Through Heaven.
Chris&Cosey-Walking Through Heaven
I've always thought that certain deep house tracks were the spine of the new balearic scene championed by dj's like Phil Mison(now Reverso 68).This one comes from the Netherlands and was produced in 1994.It came out on Touche records.Its one of the best deep house tracks ever.Its 51 Days with Paper Moon.
51 Days-Paper Moon
What a brilliant combination of musicians,what a brilliant song.

This is such a good feel video.Sea,romance and music.What more can you ask.As for the song it's the sound of summer.Mr Herb Albert and his trumpet in full balearic jazz funk.From his classic 1979 album "Rise".And if that's not enough i ve added "Rotation" as well cause i think these two songs go down better together.
Are you going with me??Why this soft jazz guy again?The thing is i like a lot of songs from Pat Metheny.Weird huh?Well everybody has problems.Eventually i ended up with this one.An epic balearic monster and its the live version.It's an all time favourite.Tunes like this one never wear out.And can take you to a place between heaven and earth.So go with me

FUNK MACHINE - LONG TRAIN RUNNIN'
Doobie Brothers"Long Train Runnin'", originally pre-worked as "Osborne" in 1972 was finally released in 1973 under its current title. The song bears a noticeable resemblance to Led Zeppelin's "Trampled Under Foot" from their February 1975 album Physical Grafitti which in turn resembles Stevie Wonder's "Superstition", though neither band has confirmed nor denied inspiration from the other.
The song was covered by many artist along with Bananarama , Gypsy Kings and Traks.
I prefer Funk Machine's version back in 82'.Taken from
|Dance On The Groove And Do The Funk (LP)|

Jasper Van't Hof-Hoomba Hoomba-(full length version)
Tangerine Dream is perhaps the premier exponent of electronic "rock" music. This German group can take significant credit in introducing synthesizer/sequenced electronic music to most of the western rock world. The Dream's spacey, pulsing music earned them a tenatious cult following.
This one "Love On A Real Train" it's from the soundtrack of "Risky Business" starring Tom Cruise.

And the track would be "Why" by the Woodentops,
because of the energy and the spirit of it.
It was always the last track of the night and people would just go mad for it.
The Woodentops - Why why why? live version
John Farnham-The Age of Reason-Crisis' re-edit
Viny Reilly used to be one of my indie heroes back at the time when i thought that Factory records was the only label that produced music for my ears.His band the Durruti Column was one of the strangest bands on the label.Their name was takne from an anrchist party that was active during the Spanish Civil war.Their music was the blueprint for many electronic ambient acts to come later.A really different aproach from all the new wave bands of their time.Well Otis is an all time favourite and it can be bring great results to people with stress and anxiety during nightime.Like a sideffect free pill or something..

This track first came out 1989.SInce then it has been remixed noumerous times by almost everyone and in any version its just amazing.It sent the standards for any latin based house to come later.It still sounds so fresh today.This mix is Grid's hard to find dub version.Flamenco magic at its best!!
