Balearic Beat from my dj sets and greatest hits of this genre, all times stainless tunes...

  1. Elkin & Nelson - Jibaro

    5 For Sale from $14.09

    Obviously we heard these colombian musicians thanks to the '88 summer of love and Dj Alfredo sets. Proto-Balearic first hit...

  2. Mandy Smith - I Just Can't Wait 'The Cool & Breezy Jazz Version'

    13 For Sale from $7.39

    Never forget the first time i heard this version of Mandy...instant classic.

  3. The Blow Monkeys Featuring Quan-T And Berzerk* - La Passionara

    Classic track from this british group....sounds a lot 1990-91

  4. The Grid - Floatation

    Have got this track thanks to a house compilation of that era. When i discover this sound i think how different music comes since acid fever and late 80s. A sound revolution begin...

  5. José Padilla - Adios Ayer

    24 For Sale from $5.11

    Balearic, chill out, downtempo...and many more. A new millenial classic.

  6. Jasper Van 't Hof's Pili Pili* - Hoomba-Hoomba

    How to trip to Africa hearing a tune...

  7. Carly Simon / Chic - Why

    16 For Sale from $30.67

    Unforgettable Chic bass line and the voice of Carly Simon...i just discovered years after to the edition and rotation.
    "Why" was a terrific hit during the fever of acid house, new beat and balearic wave...but a good song remains forever.

  8. William Pitt - City Lights

    11 For Sale from $2.84

    The voice of William Pitt, the production of this tune (percussion, gtrs, keyboards) and the right moment and the right place (Ibiza) to make a stainless hit of synth pop become balearic.

  9. Bryan Ferry - The Right Stuff

    28 For Sale from $1.14

    Mr. Elegance and his extended version of this tune catch an era in 6:40 min...the percussion is the key of the song in my humble opinion.

  10. Cyndi Lauper - What's Going On

    The Club Version put in place this tune...of course the percussion gains a main place as soon we heard the song, but never forget the voice of Cyndi and the additional production. Gives personality like an original theme (cover of Marvin Gaye)

  11. Moodswings Featuring Chrissie Hynde - Spiritual High

    Spiritual High (Original Edit) i love it as soon i heard it...

  12. Chris Rea - Josephine

    13 For Sale from $7.39

    The song, the version, the voice of Chris Rea and the story behind the tune are all perfect (i'm father of a girl too, touch my heart forever)

  13. Tullio De Piscopo - Stop Bajon

    How a percussionist make a big hit? This is the answer...a tune of italo disco involved in the playlists of Ibiza and the funk groove of this track made the rest...

  14. Sueño Latino - Sueño Latino

    7 For Sale from $6.41

    The Paradise Version transports inmediatly to the island of the freedom...

  15. Electra - Jibaro

    We heard this tune in 1989 in Argentina from a pirate vinyl compilation...we love it but don't know untill years after this version was a cover of Elkin & Nelson 70's hypnotic hit of Balearic...

  16. The Residents - Kaw-Liga (Dancemix)

    Definitive version (Prairie Mix)

  18. The Woodentops - Live Hypnobeat Live

    9 For Sale from $3.41

    Why...live record of The Woodentops and becomes a classic in Ibiza.

  19. Thrashing Doves* - Je$u$ On The Payroll

    104 For Sale from $0.56

    Je$u$ On The Payroll (Street Groove) this version was the definitive on the succsess in Ibiza clubs...

  20. Soul II Soul - A Dreams A Dream

    54 For Sale from $0.28

    More hypnotic or sharp for me than Back To Life or Fair Play...seems more in the wave of Balearic Beats.

  21. The Art Of Noise - Moments In Love (Beaten)

    At first moment this tune was underrated for djs...only the years put the things in his place. Total classic.

  22. A Man Called Adam - Barefoot In The Head

    Chill out, house...great vocal perfomance.

  23. BBG - Snappiness

    51 For Sale from $0.57
