I don’t recall how or when I became friends with DJ Nivek on Wechat. I’m pretty sure we’ve never met personally. But he runs a tightly curated Wechat group for Balearic Music and has a habit of posting photos of teasingly obscure vinyl on his 朋友圈. As such I figured he might be able to put together an hour of interesting music for our radio show, and wow was I right.
We’re happy to present here am all-vinyl mix of what can be broadly called ‘Balearic’, but totally in keeping with the original eclectic ethos of the term before it became codified into some kind of marketable genre. There’s no tracklisting, and I doubt Shazam will be of any help here. The couple of track IDs I managed to prise out of Nivek were seriously off-radar. As such, our suggestion is to simply grab your tipple of choice and kick without preconceptions to an hour of sublime music.
