La Torre Ibiza Volumen Tres *
The year we are in has an obvious lack of what we call a Balearic compilation but hopefully PETE GOODING and International Feel - Mark Barrott dropped their third one which released and name after the idyllic sunset view hotel and restaurant ‘’La Torre’’ on Ibiza.
La Torre Ibiza Volumen Tres has an original Balearic spirit, the one that shaped by Leo Mas opening DJ Set on Amnesia Ibiza, José Padilla and Phil Mison on Café Del Mar and by many others in the island, at least not the small hours of the day, better, let’s say of the night.
Eclectic and unlimited genre valid its fifthteen ventures are moving between multifarious pop, indie and rock, melodic and minimal electronic atmospheres, paired with world music and funk sympathize.
It’s not filled with the extra rare and undiscovered tracks, exclusivities and never heard before releases but compiled with extra love and passion by both White Island residents and compilers.
In the tracklist included latest releases, classisc as recent reissued classics. Pacific Coliseum’s ‘’Morning At Made's’’ cassette only released before, extract from my favourite tape of 2017, Napolitan super stars Nu Guinea’s ‘’A Voce E Napule’’ from DJ Nova’s album of the year 2018, ‘’Obatala’’ by the emblematic Malcolm Mclaren, personal highlight of the early Balearic classic and the blue eyed soul of "After Hours’ by Swing Out Sister, one of the tracks that surprised me positive and makes me think about last Volume’s succeed choice of Eric Serra tune. The jazzed and folkish AOR "Anything's Possible’’ by Richard Torrance is one of the track that makes the selection shining like gold. Mark Barrott RSD epic Remix on Tears for Fears Head Over Heels" is here, his ‘’Mokusho’’ from his previous EP, surely a ‘’La Torre’’ sundown session delight. I must mention the jazzy dub opening by Bill Laswell & Jah Wobble "Alsema Dub’’ which is put you on the right mood.
The third part of the compilation series is crossroads between past and present and where real Ibiza’s Balearic side is living in the plethora of feel good moments of sounds, views and tastes. - DJ Nova, Balearic For You **
