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.

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.
