La Torre Ibiza Volumen Uno (1CD)


Tucked away on the west coast of the island, Hostel La Torre beckons with its beauty and ‘vista spectacular’, encompassing the essence of that authentic Balearic spirit, as pioneered by Alfredo Fiorito at Amnesia and José Padilla at Café del Mar in the early 80s.

But this is not an exercise in nostalgia, rather a journey that seeks to reframe Balearic music in the present moment by embracing that ‘anything goes’ spirit via the avant-garde of Finis Africae’s “Managua”, rare classics like the Arabic pop funk of Ahmed Fakroun’s “Nisyan” and Cameroonian poetry of Francis Bebey’s “Forest Nativity”, with the proto Ambient House of Spooky’s “Orange Coloured Liquid” and modern productions like Dominique Dumont’s “Comme ça”, Andras’s “Gold Coast” and Mark Barrott’s “Deep Water”. Balearic in its truest form is all these things and much more, it’s cosmopolitan and countercultural, international yet wholly specific to a singular place on Earth.

It lights upon and encapsulates all the evocative beauty of Ibiza, the sounds themselves matching the colour palette of the island. The red dirt hills and the white sands, the pink blooms of almond trees and the electric blue of the water surrounding Es Vedrà, the magnetic magic, vivid colours and raw beauty of Ibiza is all here. At its root, Balearic music is always experiential. So even if you can’t get to the terrace at La Torre for the ‘vista spectacular’, feel free to open up the gatefold, pour a chilled glass of Belondrade and journey back within.
