If you are going to Ibiza for the first time this year or even if you are a seasoned veteran, I cannot recommend this CD highly enough to get you right into the authentic balearic mood. Lemon Jelly's Fred Deakin has compiled a mix that truly represents the spirit of Ibiza better than any generic Ibiza Chillout compilation ever could. In fact, I haven't heard a mix that reminds me so much of the island since Jose Padilla's legendary Cafe Del Mar series.

CD1 is house but you'll find no funky/electro commercial nonsense here. If you have had the pleasure to hear Jon Sa Trinxa play at his famous namesake bar on Ses Salinas beach you'll have a good idea of what kind of house is on offer here. Down tempo, low slung grooves and cosmic disco similar to that which you'd hear on the Eskimo record label really sets the perfect mood for home listening and dreaming about Ibiza. Todd Terje's funky remix of Kaoru Inoue's 'Secret Field' is a standout track, as is Blackbelt Anderson's 'Sirup', a peculiar mix of live bongoes, an acid line and dreamy synths. Also worth a mention is the Reverso 68 remix of Wallis Bird's 'Counting to Sleep' which features a very sexy vocal.

CD2 is more downtempo still but this is no chillout mix either. Never sacrificing the funk, Deakin takes the mix up and down, weaving in and out of house and typical sunset balearic tunes. His track selection is spot on and it never gets boring or samey for a minute.

In short, Fred Deakin is a true eclectic DJ (check out his Triptych triple mix CD) but here he just sticks to great straight up Ibiza cool. The mixing is spot on and every tune is a gem. Perfect for that summer holiday.

For the price (currently £1.29 new), you're not going to go too far wrong with this. As Summer approaches, now's the time to dust off the Balearic beats, the jazzy house and the deep space dub.

This is a solid compilation of deep house tunes, nu disco (insert latest sub genre of house here), mixed neatly at a bpm that doesn't break a sweat - about 120?

Disc 1 is chunky and bassy, with some interesting melodies - no minimal trends here. If you're after sun-drenched tunes, that offset a BBQ well, then reach for your debit card now. If you're familiar with Caramellas by Aeroplane for example, you'll get the picture. At this juncture, I'd like to add that I can't rate this tune highly enough. It's bloomin' lovely.

Disc 2 lowers the tempo even further and subsequently gives some space for experimentation. The latter half of the disc particularly showcases this, with some funky goodies from Norway Man and Badly Drawn Boy and some San Fran style, tongue in cheek goodness from Real Ones/ beyond The Wizaeds Sleeve.

In summary, if you're partial to some decent electronica, you could do worse than spending small change on this decent compilation.

A BIT HIT AND MISS! WEIRD BLEND! There are some really lovely tracks on here but there is no connection between the mixing in places. Some tracks are fast some slow and it does feel a little disjointed as a whole. Honestly I could have put this together better in one evening sorry but it could have been better thought through. As I said some nice tracks but a bloody mess of a journey. Some familiar and uplifting tracks here and it works as a sunny sound just a little weird. I personally think this all really depends on your perspective of what Ibiza is to you. Bora Bora? Space? Sa Trincha? There are many moods to Ibiza and I have all of the Cafe Del mar stuff which is great, but I just couldn't gel with this really it's OK.

Despite the proud (or guilty) owner of over 8000 CD's (yes I know I should convert to MP3 downloads one day), this album is simply stunning. It strikes many a unique chord, stimulating thoughts of the back room at Amnesia when it all began - this is a very special, a very different, but a very recommended CD. If you want something to break the house monotony, to drive to, to have in the background at a dinner party, or to simply float away with as the sun goes hazy by the villa pool - then buy this. After a few 'run-ins' to get rid of the cobwebs, the CD will just keep on giving!
