a couple of weeks in a remote finca lost in the hills of countryside Ibiza was what my family really needed.The sun was shining and we made a pact not to bring phones,computers, iPad, Nintendo ds and blah blah di blah...
The house had no internet...only an Ipod was tolerated so we could listen to music while baking our 6 months winter pale skins by the pool.
reading books,eat fresh fish,discover the island and drink Albarinos and juicy Riojas.(fresh orange juice for kids on the latter)
A typical day went like this:
8am ish....a Bright shiny morning:

Sly & Robbie + Howie.B - Ballistic squeeze :slow riser (the volume on your system is right!)

10am the 3 espressos i drunk finally kick in and i can now enjoy this pre-release i'd received...title is just right.
Souleance - la belle vie

Then lunch....

the after lunch, driven by the blood rushing to our bellies and sun hitting us hard would go back to some heavy limbo bass driven tunes like this beauty:
tafari syndicate - free for all

or this one..
los silvertones - carmen

or also some brilliantly produced indulgent funk:
parliament - flash light

having finally digested and after a splash in the pool with the kids trying hard to drawn me just for fun this went down well:
Al Barry _ The Cimarons-Morning sun

shimi sonic - beat of a preacher man

6pm ish feeling perk again we'd drive to a nice beach around and listen to some tunes,drink a few cocktails and watch the sunset.

Flume - sleepless feat cleopatra

this one gets you well ripe in the mood:(no pic sorry)
Souleance - Boobs

Guti _ Dubshape - Every Cow Has A Bird

Hope you've enjoyed the musical journey...


  1. ...just by listening to these few songs - i guess it must have been a great holiday :)

    parliament - flash light (nice song... i have so far never really listened to all the great parliament, funkadelic etc. music... time to do something about it...

    howie b, sly & robbie - ballistic squeeze (ballistic version is still groovin' ina 2012! nice dub...)

    tafari syndicate - free for all (good old reggae - always good to hear!)

    guti & dubshape - every cow has a bird (nice one! not sure if I know this version - but a brilliant tune for sure!)

    shimi sonic - beat of a preacher man (good good good! probably the best "modern" version of this song I have heard!)

    al barry & the cimarons - morning sun (deep heavy bass! reggae is my foundation... wake me up with a song like this every morning... ;-)
