Welcome to the first release on a new record label, Real Balearic.
We are a record label based in Ibiza and London. We were set up by the team who brought you the world famous "Real Ibiza" series of compilations and released the very first "Café Del Mar" compilation. We are passionate about music and in particular music with a thread that runs between the musical sounds of Ibiza and the Balearic islands. Whilst we may "chill out" with the best of them it is not just what we are all about. Balearic techno, Balearic disco, Ambient soundscapes, Classical interludes, Sundrenched chords, Sunset grooves, Moonwashed rhythms.... and just about anything that grabs us....
If you are starting a Balearic themed record label then there's really only one place to start... And that is Jose Padilla, the DJ from the world famous Café Del Mar bar in Ibiza. Quite possibly the one person who has had the most profound impact on what has become the Balearic / Ibiza sound. Jose became resident at the bar in 1991. He compiled the first edition of the world famous Café Del Mar compilation series in 1994 (For React our sister label). Along the way he has also released a series of albums and singles. For release 001 we are honoured to be putting out our new remixes of his classic "Elixir" track.
We open up with an organic re-interpretation of the original from the Italian based producer Leo Ceccanti (one half of the chill out tunesmiths Almunia) His "Baleraric Dream" version adds layers of dreamy acoustic guitar and lazy electric chords. His "Special K" re-rub roughs things up a bit. Here the groove is deeper and the guitar veers into funky territory with its locked on groove and peak-time sunset beats.
The US West Coast may be a world away from the white isle, but Aimes nails the Balearic vibe with his remix. Counterpoints, smooth bass riff, shimmering keys and chord changes are the order of the day. The package is rounded off with the Kazakhstan based Wawawiwas and their beachy jazz version.
For our launch we are releasing our first and second releases concurrently. Please do check out "Video Magic" from the San Francisco based Sorcerer, our second release which is available on vinyl. We really hope you can join us on our musical journey.
