Various Artists - Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy presents ‘Balearic Breakfast’ Volume 2
This is a pre-order item and is expected 9th June 2023.
“Like David Mancuso and the original Ibizan DJs, Murphy understands Balearic to be a hard-to-define mixture that’s both soothing and gently envelope-pushing” The Arts Desk
“This tantalising selection of tracks is reason enough to swap the cups of tea snd toast for exotic fruits and poolside cocktails” Electronic Sound
Murphy's definition of Balearic seems more tied to music's capacity to take you to limitless backdrops than it is to any specific destination, a natural outlook for a curator whose career has been one long, fruitful journey. Resident Advisor
Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy serves up a second helping of Balearic Breakfast with another phenomenal compilation for Heavenly Recordings. Like 2022’s acclaimed first Balearic Breakfast album, this one features eleven tracks that drift between space rock and soul, disco and deep house, ambient and electronica, old and new, fast and slow. In the words of Cosmo herself, these tracks are a “hodge-podge of chill out, spiritual jazz, deep soul, percussive house, quirky disco, indie-dance and what may ‘traditionally’ be called ‘balearic’ (whatever that may be).” In the words of Heavenly, these albums are horizontal masterpieces that should be prescribed on the NHS as they’re filled with the kind of blissed out music that’s guaranteed to lift you out of the mundane and the everyday, wherever you are.
Many of the tracks on Balearic Breakfast 2 have never been available on vinyl before.
