“The Jacaranda Skies EP is the sort of record that is not for every moment. But when the crowds right …and I think fuck it I wanna go a different way, this is what I’d put on. Hopefully I’d take the crowd with me…”
Following solid EP’s on Is it Balearic, Secret Life and Balearic Social Joe Morris offers up four gorgeous cuts for Pleasure Unit. Continuing the producers passion for new age, paradisiacal ambience and dreamy deep house lead title “Jacaranda Skies” could easily be the result of a Telephones and Larry Heard jam session had they met in Rimini circa 1991. A dusky atmosphere provides the backdrop to ecstasy inducing chords; an elevated brass sequence and afro percussion drive forth a tight groove.
‘The Lost Garden’ opens to a reverb soaked slide guitar and soaring pad section before a Jaguar snarl introduces a subtle kick pattern…

#BalaericInDub Deep, Sunset Dubnodica 🙂
Sun Scope by Maricopa, wow what a beautiful piece of music, I’m getting goose bumps listening right now. Deep Melodica man, it flows and grows without getting all complex. This being released right at the tail of 2017 is a game changer in my favorite track of the year. What comes out of Timm Sure’s and Richard Hampson’s Camp only can only be described as remarkable. These guys completely work for the love of music. “And to possibly pay for a trip to the White Isle once a year” as Timm put it to me once. Is It Balearic….? ain’t just Balearic they’re almost punk in their attitude, in the sense there’s no big promotional campaign beforehand. The records they put out sell themselves. Well now, here’s the link to listen to the 5th track on the A side of Sun Scope the Album, Sun Scope. This Track will sail…

Dusk & Dawn By Private Agenda Promotional Mix from NuNorthern Soul’s Main Man Phil Cooper
Those of you of a chilled persuasion will know the name Phil Cooper and his wonderfully relaxed label NuNorthern Soul. Despite the name, this is not a Soul Music label but a label for Music with Soul as those that follow will know.
Over the last few years Phil has worked tirelessly with some of the most laid back names in music, putting out the most soporific of grooves to soundtrack anything from a Saturday on the beach to a Sunday roast to a heady night in a club environment.
In the run up to the new Dusk & Dawn release by Private Agenda on NuNorthern Soul, we asked Phil what inspired him to start the label and what keeps him searching for music to release on his always impressive imprint. Phil came back with…

Love, love LOVE 🙂
The incombustible duo In a Certain Ratio, captains of the label Dogs & Vultures Records, are premiered on Eclectics, and do so with a straight set, hypnotic, heterodox,with full of details and narrative, cooked at a slow pace.
The whole is like a compact and unique rock, which takes us as fast to the dance floor as to reflection.
