Hi guys, I’m back, and I’m previewing something else on International Feel. Essentially if you want us to preview your stuff just make sure it’s shit hot and send it through to us before it comes out so we can feel important and relevant.

Anyway, I digress; we all remember La Torre Ibiza Volumen Uno don’t we… No, me either although apparently it was in Resident Advisor’s top 5 compilations of the year and I’ve bought it off Juno this morning for a five spot and can confirm it is very tip-top indeed.

This is Volumen Dos (two for those of you not fluent in Spanish) and it continues the same well-worn path as the first. What path is that I hear you ask? Well, super relaxed, floaty instrumental business, off kilter pop music that sounds good on pills, pan pipes and odd foreign gear that sounds ace with a glass of Sangria and a killer sunset.

We just need them to book Simon and I to go over and play there now and it’ll be sound…

The press release for this has some really deep shit but you’re not here for that so check out this mini mix of the first comp and grab the album at the end of June – LOOK AT THAT FUCKING TRACKLIST!!

There’s some obscure stuff on there so I’ve made notes to help you out.

  • 1. On Retinae (East) – Dip in the Pool (classic)
  • 2. Tema Perr Malva – Ishi Vu (drugs gear, fully approve of this)
  • 3. Diya Gneba – Oumou Sangaré (aforementioned weird foreign gear)
  • 4. L`Uomo Invisibile – Fuga Ronto (absolute business this one)
  • 5. Otis – The Duritti Column (ask your Dad)
  • 6. Expansions – Lord of the Isles (Enya vibes)

  • 9. Clocking Off – (DON’T ASK) (sounds like what everyone was listening to in 2006)

  • 17. Learning Time – Eric Serra (theme tune to an 80’s romantic thriller that you haven’t got round to watching on your Netflix watchlist yet)
