Xiringuitos are small beach venues along the sunny coast of Catalonia, where drinks and tapas are served. Due to the often provisional and loose organization of a Xiringuito, the word may also denote any unlawful activity outside of the formal sector of the economy. In other words, it is the perfect blend of summer sun and the underground dance floor.
I spent part of my teenage years in Barcelona – a city by the water, a city full of Xiringuitos, and the city where I bought my first ever vinyl record.
In total three field recordings were used in this mix; the waves of lake Nordenskjöld in the south of Chile, traffic in central Santiago, Chile, and seagull cries recorded from my balcony in Stockholm, Sweden.
