Balearic Beacons

By barticle barticle
updated 23 days ago

This list is an appropriately random collection of full-length Balearic releases (compilations, DJ mixes and artist albums) plus some labels/series. This is "Balearic" in the sense of Balearic Beat - the original chilled eclectic sound of Ibiza DJ sets - and the music that followed in a similar vein up to and including contemporary Nu-Balearic productions and re-edits. This is not about 90's Ibiza house/trance.

If nothing else this list should help you find a couple of good compilations that don't have the B-word in the title - although most do at least have some combination of Ibiza / chill / sunset / beach / classics! The first few compilations in this list give a great introduction to a lot of the big original anthems, but many of these tracks are duplicated across several collections so be sure to check the tracklists for overlap.

Suggestions for additions to this list are welcomed and will be credited if used.
