ABOUT THIS ITEM
Is It Balearic? launch into the new year with probably their biggest 12" to date. This latest release features two tracks from Hardway Bros plus remixes from Toby Tobias and Andrew Weatherall!
"Mania Theme" is a mid-tempo acid house chugger built for big systems and discerning dancefloors - proper baggy era summer of love smiley face big fish little fish nice one Balearic sounds. The Andrew Weatherall remix adds a live bass and synth arpeggios to produce a real trademark Weatherall bomb - if you've just purchased his Cut Copy remix, then this should be on your shopping list as well. Elsewhere, Toby Tobias' remix turns the brooding acid chugger into a sublime Balearic deep house groover reminiscent of the Italian house heyday and creates the same warm vibes as Don Carlos or Last Rhythm with a touch of acid for good measure. The second track from Hardway Bros is a reconstruction of the Hardkiss track "Pacific Coastal Highway" - again, tripped-out acid house vibes are the order of the day here.
