Like the sound of that, the other didn’t tickle my fancy.
After The Tweenies?
Good stuff.. really enjoying part 1
Mylo. good question. Dunno. Dining out off those gloria estefan royalties probably. I wonder if he looks at Calvin Harris with some envy. He turned down the chance to sign him!

It sounds like a playlist made by my dad, but I will probably give it a listen anyhow! The strange thing about music is it's potential for re-evaluation, and how a song you may have dismissed previously can work in a new context, either in a new physical space or between certain songs. Or you just get older and aren't so concerned with just liking what's "cool".
Anyway, I just thought of this classic.
your Dad’s way cooler than mine. i was forcefed classical on R3 growing up...
basically, i’ve been clearing out thousands of files clogging up my laptop and had fun recording all these. not too many more to go.
sounds cliched but all that 70s/AOR stuff actually does sound pretty cool on remote American roads and there is a lot of overlap with the whole balearic thing because the music is dark/folky, evokes nature/landscapes and blends in well with slower electronic stuff.
*shout to AOR Disco, Steve Lee, DJ History, Michael Cook, Richard Norris, Lovefingers, Balearic Assassins of Love and everyone else who has championed this music for years
1BTN have got Rampling in for a 3 hr special next week - might be decent if he digs deep in the crates
THis is probably a bad admission, but I'm listening to Smokers Delight for the first time ever. And, yes, I have heard of NOW before and been exposed to them in bits 'n' bobs.
(I'm assuming this album is Balearic.)
Yeah, kind of. For me depends on the track really.
George obv is part of the ibz family now and gets the spirit, but i think his music is more for afternoon idling at the chiringuito than the sunset, if that makes sense?!
The opening track was on an old Jose Padilla mix 6 Music were playing. Hence why i was inspired.. Only listened to about half the album last night, but definitely seems like 'one i missed'.
ooooh, Ashley Beedle's latest is well worth a go today
that growling Gil Scott Heron bassline sounds pretty spinetingling on the right system - heard him drop it years back at plastic people and was totally floored
'Mission Venice' is the standout on there. killer tune.
Always a chuckle to these
Cesar de melero played these here last night, high on Montjuic overlooking the ciy and the port. Pretty special.
