This week I have picked up two very nice mixes and one nice video of an installation by two artists, Romain Tardy and someone hiding behind the “Squeaky Lobster” pseudo. It’s called the Ark and it’s a beautiful combination of lights, water reflections and structures. Let’s start with these guys:
A site specific installation by Romain Tardy and Squeaky Lobster
Proyecta Oaxaca, Ethnobotanical garden of Oaxaca, Mexico
Café del Mar Summer mix 2013 by Toni Simonen
I’ve written here that I felt José Padilla and a couple others were the only ones who were able to capture the essence of Balearic music. It does not mean others do a bad job, and Toni Simonen is definitely up to something in this mix.
Manuel Göttsching – E2-E4 (part 1)
Now this is a true rarity. It’s been released in the nineties and listening to it will unveil the very soul and underlying characteristics of Balearic music. It’s all in there, in its most abstract, yet crudest form. Only AMCA ( a man called Adam) comes close to this level.
That’s all for now, thanks for listening folks!
