The first thing you need to know is there's Balearic and there's Balearic. The first one everyone with a Geography GCSE will know, of course. The second is harder to define. It's perhaps more of a state of mind among a certain type of man. Kelvin Andrews and Balearic Mike are two such men.
Kelvin Andrews has been a DJ for the cognoscenti and a maker of many remarkable records over the years and Balearic Mike has been around just as long.
As collectors and connoisseurs they are pretty much unrivalled.
Between then, they are purveyors of what semiologists like to call 'Balearic music'
If it means anything, the Balearic state of mind is simply anything, anything at all, that sounds good on a dancefloor or, as dance music writer Frank Tope once put it, "pop music that sounds good on pills". So let Mike and Kelv take you on a journey, a voyage filled with love, good times and, moreover, great music. A voyage down to the sea... (Bill Brewster, March 2010) (edited)
