Mediterranean Beat Part 2
So here is the deal.Last summer i made two mixes that still remain as two of my favourites till now.One of them was called mediterranean beat and it was a tribute to all things balearic.I decied to make a second part to this mix just before i leave for my holidays in the islands of the Aegean which is my main inspiration for all this romantic themed mixes that worship the ghosts of Mike Francis and Jacques Mayol,the Aegean sea,''Summer Lovers'',Amnesia,Phil Mison playing at Del Mar,my first time at Mykonos,Cherry Lips,anchors,Spagetti del Mare and last but not least the sun.So this is part 2 of Meditarranean Beat.I was thinking what all this balearic thing really means to me and after all i thought it's just my way of escaping from the grayness of reality to a place where the sun always shine and people smile.Take this mix with you on your holidays and think of me while listening.I will be happy giving you some moments of true happiness.

The dream is getting close.It's almost there.Only a few days away from diving in the mediterranean sea.With music like this to keep me company.Mike Francis is like an old friend tapping me on the back when his voice hits my ears through the speakers.It's almost weird how can someone touch you so deeply with his music.Mike you were one of my heroes.The voice of my summers.I guess you all know this one but it's worth giving it another go.

Ok.So now it's time to stop talking crap and get into some serious stuff.When talking about classics of this magnitude it's hard to be objective.For me this is one of the biggest tunes ever.This is one the cases that music can be a real trip outside this world.Just close your eyes and let this classic take you where the sun mates with the sea exploding into millions molecules of light travelling the cosmos.Enough.Sleepwalker is one of those classics that still do the trick.Made in Belgium for the whole world.

This is nearly crossing the border of being massively stupid but i love it.

Beautiful flamenco guitar driven spanish pop played at the infamous Aficionado parties.Real balearic for people that listen to music using their hearts more than their ears.

This is due to hit the shops really soon so don't sleep on this one.Max Essa on the production with Yuki Suzuki on vocals delivers this euphoric ''spaghetti'' piano house track that makes you go way back to that early 90's ambient house mood.On the b side Lee Douglas takes on the remix controls for a more uptempo take on the original.Released on the Tokyo based Jansen Jardin label.

under open skies
I guess i was quite late on this one but it's so good that it deserves some extra hype around it.Seminal first release from Mr Apiento that being more than a really respected blogger and edit wizard,goes one step beyond with this.Sounds like Vini Reilly jamming on the beach.Can't wait to grab this.
