ABOUT THIS ITEM
Here's the debut release on new imprint Back To The Balearics. It's a label on a mission to uncover music with significance, special sounds that can make a moment out of nothing. In an increasingly fast and disposable world the need for such moments is more important than ever. Back To The Balearics is a journey to nowhere in particular with plenty of musical stop overs on the way.
The first release, by Belfast’s Maricopa, who you'll already know from his Tusk Wax offering in 2012), perfectly defines that sound. His electronic tracks blend naïve beauty with emotional depth in a sonic landscape devoid of all the usual musical clichés of dance music. Jittery keyboard arpeggios are layered over slo-mo 4/4 beats and lazy claps for a lush Balearic-house style crossover.
