This one's for the after after after Balearic hours.
This track is the perfect afterhours antidote
to any preceding episode of whatever we get up to.
Originally released in the mid-1990s on the legendary
Dr Bob Jones' Black On Black label.
This is a bit of a modern soul anthem and is something
that is well worth hunting it down.
Simply turn the volume up,clode you eyes and let the
sublime vocals of Camelle whisk you off to Sausolito...

David Drake says
"It's there a greater joy in life than total immersion of feeling,
losing yourself completely and pushing aside all cynicism
It's why you drink, dance, and throw yourself into a vast,
unknowable nightlife despite the uncertainty,
the possibility of failure and of heartbreak;
It's why we love the night away. Tiedye, a duo known for
a nearly flawless string of gorgeous tropical-inflected
tracks on the Italians Do It Better label, have taken on the task
of remixing DJ Kaos' already-excellent "Love the Nite Away,"
and effortlessly re-framed the striking vocals into
a shimmering pop masterpiece.
The bongos are pure Balearic disco,and the gruff, assertive,
and sincere vocals firmly in the tradition of Italo classics.
But the end result is a passionate dancefloor
slow burn of intense beauty, an incomparable summer soundtrack.

Sunday, June 14, 2009
This mix sums up a summertime parallel universe.
One where the people are smart,where the music
trips off the decks into glasses of cold beer & nights are warm.
A small piece of heaven condensed into a mix the summer
months were made for.
By the time you ''reach the beach''you've already
entered the warm zone,
where stuff just ''feels right''
and everything in the world is,well,okay.

June's ''B'' mix
Cheekily entitled Le Suivant ("The Next One" in English),
the album sees the duo come together to work their
collaborative magic in the studio yet again, with a few new
people drafted in the help out.Robin Lee even lends his cello skills
to the record, whilst the usual cast of friends and session musicians
have fleshed out he tracks with all sorts of instrumentation.
As with their previous work, Le Suivant sees the duo venture
away from their more dancefloor-oriented material
to create a lush summer soundtrack, mixing influences from folk,
jazz, disco and even Indian music.
As with most of the vinyl releases on Mudd's Claremont 56 imprint,
the LP version of Smith & Mudd will be limited to just 500 copies,
so wax addicts should act quickly if they fancy a slice of sunkissed
melodicism to sup their cocktails to over the summer months.
Claremont 56's released Le Suivant on June 1st, 2009.

Vangelis - intergalactic radio station
Back in the days the party manifesto was
"If it feels good ,play it''
This open music policy and a certain amount
of ''credible'' dance remixes of rock.pop,indie
and some otherwise extremely mediocre AOR
artist gave the Balearic vinyl a wider range of appeal
and collectability than any other area of dance music.
BUT,because Balearic was a vibe rather than a specific
style of music,it's very easy for some tunes to be passed off
to gullible punters as classics of the genre.
BEFORE you part with cash,make sure that obscure
Curiosity Killed The Cat instrumental b-side was
played somewhere a bit more fashionable than the
Dog & Trumpet in Croydon.
One man's Balearic is another man's Bon Jovi.
The following Balearic tunes from that era
is from The Grid.
THE GRID - Driving instructor
THE GRID - Face the sun

Mike Francis, aka Francesko, born Francesco Puccioni,
has a glorious artistic past: he was one of the protagonists
of the '80s music in Italy and internationally,
climbing the European and American charts with pieces
like "Survivor" and "Friends", impossible to forget.
Lovely summer tune.
