Balearic House, it's one of those terms that gets thrown around all the time, and seldom lives up to the billing. Well i reckon today’s choice really nails the whole concept… for me it's got everything that you could need. lazy Guitars, a relaxed stomping beat and a f*cking Harmonica! Superb!
Raz Ohara – El Zahir (Acid Pauli Mix)
I know absolutely sod all about Raz Ohara other than he's Danish and lives in Berlin and had a few tunes out on Kindish.
To be honest the Acid Pauli mix is little more than a re-edit with a bit of analog wobble going on. The drums are beefed up, the clap is more prominent and the vocals are stripped back but otherwise it's – think Terjes reworking of Dolly Jolly and you're pretty much there, taking the main element that everyone loved and reworkign it into a hypnotic sunset groove.
So there you go, short post as it's been a bugger of a day (working bankholidays always is), but this eased my mood somewhat. It's been around for a while, released last year, and it just made it's way back onto my player today.
