The Balearic sound is always expanding, if its not New Age influenced its a bit more world or tribal or even slightly lounge. Either way the sound wasn’t a fad from a few years ago, its definitely here to stay if you are willing to dig.
Some of the better record shops seem to be picking up on posting clips of records that are coming into the shops on Soundcloud which is making it way easier to shop through these hundreds of records that come out every week.
Lusine is back with a crystal clean single that touches on some of his best work he’s done in the past. Always smooth as gloss and driven low end thats a perfect weight, no denying the melody either. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
The jungles surface slowly growing in on hazy planet, Lance Neptune hits us with another single that makes me want to dig up a few of my old favorite EPs on Planet-Mu from a few summers ago.

Nothing wrong with something a bit more moody in the middle of the summer. Some big warm moods coming from the fresh faces in Shines, this one is an easy swallow that sways in-between melodic feelings from a Teebs track to early spacious sample based Shigeto releases.

Colorvision 13 features the work of Luke Wyatt aka Torn Hawk, straight from his slightly deserted youtube account. The channel is full of destroyed and altered VHS gems that might be some of the best alterations i’ve ever seen. Let this one ride out, its perfect all the way to the end.
Probably one of the most melodic albums you’ll hear all year. Bring back IDM but stewing in a bit of lo-fi acid and old Delsin catalog with an amazing use of atmosphere.
I try to catch every Nebraska track that comes out, some of the most visual disco that crosses over to indie rock and deep house easily. I find his approach always seems to come from a genuine knowledge of his sounds history, looking forward to more.
Beef Terminal is a Canadian guitarist that caught my ear via bandcamp, this song grabbed my ear because it was a bit looser than some of the Mark McGuire tracks and the reverb definitely has more space to roam around.
Not sure who the artist is on this but the new age whistling along with a jungle break is such a great combo.
