James Bright – Betamax EP

I’ve been seeing more and more quality releases from north west based producer James Bright over the last few months, including releases on Eclectics and Midnight Riot, and mostly recently his excellent track ‘Shimmer’ on the Sol d’en Serra EP on Higher Love Recordings.

He’s about to drop a new six tracker on Danish label Quattro Music, the Betamax EP is set for release on June 6th. If you’re a fan of the summery sounds of labels like Music for Dreams or International Feel then this is one to check. All super Balearic chuggers destined to soundtrack beach bars and pool parties, it’s a really strong package with guitar driven & percussive ‘Groves’ and loon bird & gamelan bubbler ‘Flying Tiger’ among personal favourites. Have a listen to opening track, the super mellow sunset atmospherics of ‘You and Me’ below.

Into Daylight by Cantoma

The new decade dawns with a message of love and hope from Balearic envoy Phil Mison and his fourth LP under the Cantoma moniker. Joined by old friends and new acquaintances, Señor Misono draws on a lifetime of record collecting, selection and songwriting to pack ‘Into Daylight’ with the essence of the Balearic movement, from the Café del Mar and beyond.

The album features guests Quinn Lamont Luke, Hush Forever, Suad Khalifa, Apres Midi, David Philips and Luna Asteri and was recorded between London and Barcelona.

Faint Waves – Dancing Flame

Gorgeous, super slo-mo sunset balearic ambient piece here from Faint Waves, lead track on a new three track EP ‘Sol d’en Serra’ from new label Higher Love Recordings. It’s a cool package with a fine dreamhouse bubbler ‘Shimmer’from James Bright and cinematic atmospherics from Audiocluster. Out 27/4/20
