This show was 8th in the global chill out chart and 25th in the global downtempo chart.
The mix has the well-known recipe of mine which is a tuple of real Balearic tracks and others that sound Balearic to me. The most of them under the umbrella of ambient or early chill out sound like the ones which have been played on Café Del Mar and not on the White Island’s dancefloors. The mix started with flamenco guitar introduction from the great collaboration between Al Di Meola & Paco de Lucia and the dancefloorless version of Belen Thomas cover of my favourite track of the eighties. Continues with Talk Talk, Malcolm Mclaren, Art Of Noise and Eric Serra, pure Balearics. Among others I mixed Special Touch which I discovered before six years on a compilation, ‘’Noon Flight’’ from Japanese Gontiti and midtempo rockin’ soul disco ‘’Splendida Giornata’’, the beautiful ‘’Plage De Lune’’ and beatless version of Pet Shop Boys are the one that belongs to the second category.
Official Mix 008 was recorded in December of 2013 for Acid House BLOGSPOT but didn't publiced.
