I have put together a selection of some of the original Café Del Mar / Balearic classics as played in the early wide eyed days of sound-tracked sunsets on the white isle. Balearic pop, tropical shufflers and more. Before the advent of Café Del Mar rip-off comps and identikit chill out music, these tracks set the tone for what was to follow.

Balearic Mix #3 Analogue Dreams Part 3

This is the latest mix I’ve uploaded to Mixcloud. A selection of balearic grooves, chill out, downtempo and a few more upbeat shufflers towards the end. This has been one of my more popular uploads, getting over 200 plays in its first 4 days and reaching the top 5 in Eclectic and Chill Out charts. This should go well with some sunshine and an Estrella.

There are a few new tracks, including the return of U-Star records with Shrinkwrap’s ‘Outhouse’, and recent releases from Is It Balearic? and Aficionado. In addition there are a couple of classics from Bjorn Torske, and an older release from International Feel. I hope you will enjoy it.

As a further precursor to the Jose Padilla piece, here is another sunset mix. The first half is largely beatless; pure downtempo chill out music. Halfway in the pace picks up with some chugging grooves laced with a touch of acid squelch. Wait for sunshine, and hit play. As with any mixes posted on the blog, please check out artists you like & if you really love their music buy don’t steal!
