Café Mambo & Absolut DJ x Matt Nearest Faraway Place – Sunset – Aug ’21

Here’s a new super chilled 30 min sunset mix, posted as part of Cafe Mambo and Absolut‘s Sunset DJ competition. If they’re going to fly out some lucky sunseeker to play in Ibiza next month it might as well be me right? If you’ve enjoyed the mix give it a repost & favourite and maybe I’ll buy you a shot of Hierbas down at Cafe Mambo one day soon 🙂

It’s tricky to capture a mood in such a short mix, but I tried to get a flavour of what I’d want to hear in a longer sunset session. So there’s vintage Balearic classics from Joan Bibiloni and the San Sebastian Strings, fab new school Balearic from Nick & Samantha (out now on Chris Coco‘s label), Cantoma and Bongo Entp. Then closing out the set with the timeless, emotive beauty of David Sylvian‘s ‘Let the Happiness in’ as the sun dips below the horizon.

Cicada Interlude – Nick and Samantha
The Gypsy Camp – The San Sebastian Strings
Accadde a Bali – Arawak
Back Into Daylight Ft. Quinn Lamont Luke – Cantoma
Baby Song- Bongo Entp
Summer Is Here – Nick and Samantha
Sa Fosca – Joan Bibiloni
Let The Happiness In – David Sylvian
