Calm

By Your Side - Remixes Part 2 (Inc. Mark Barrott / My Friend Dario Remixes)

About this item

The first set of remixes of Calm’s By Your Side got plenty of props for sound quality as well as their ability to get people grooving. Now the label serves up some more remixes, this time from legendary figures Mark Barrott (international Feel) and My Friend Dario.

Up first is Barrott, the long time slow motion master whose downtempo, ambient, new age and electronic fusions very much set out the Balearic template way back in the nineties. ‘Space Is My Place’ (Mark’s Re<>Imagination to the Sacred Heart Center) is an enchanting and tropical reworking with exotic percussion and liquid drums that gentle sway to and fro like a raft at sea. It’s another escapist, transportive track from Barrott that takes you to the other side of the world.

My Friend Dario returns to Hell Yeah after his exquisite Calamari Fritti EP late last year with more of his worldly infused sounds. His Etna Vision of ‘Shadows and Lights’ is a glistening affair with loosely jumbled drums and romantic keys that ring out into a balmy night sky. It’s musical and blissful as always with this artist.

Once again here Hell Yeah have come through with your most essential summer sounds.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Piccadilly's Balearic LP of 2018 continues to extend its ecstasy with a second volume of remix joy. This time round Mark Barrott of International Feel fame cooks up a cosmic chugger with all manner of chakra aligning idents and trippy blips, while My Friend Dario (best name in music?) goes deep and dreamy with an expansive house mix which shifts gears through nuanced congas, meditative breakdowns and energetic acid.
