‘Balearic’ fever has definitely upped its game this summer, you just need to look on Phonica and those that stand out are these sun tinged classics. I know many Ibizan’s would be outraged with the term but for me Balearic is all about low slung guitars, cosmic strings and spacey perc. The ultimate tipster over at Heads Down is keeping us in check with some of the finest picks, but not that many come as fine as this Luca C & Brigante tip.
Luca C has been pumpin the Bicep for a while and hit us up with an exclusive mix back in September of last year, and when we heard this EP we couldnt get on it any quicker. ‘Lucio’ is outstanding, for me it’s all about the low-fi psyc funk synth that slings it back and forth around a slow stomping beat. ‘Faber’ equally is great, amazing perc and drum shuffling gives it an almost ethnic feel but with roots firmly placed in cosmic areas.
Sold out on Double Drop records, expect more from these guys.
