The International Feel label is a favourite of all musical persuasions. It’s carefree grooves have been supported by the likes of Gilles Peterson through to i-ÚD magazine. Spearheaded by Mark Barrott for the last seven years, it has both broken new artists such as Len Leise and resurrected legends such as Jose Padilla, while successfully bringing Balearic back into the world’s consciousness in the process.
The title track is an elegant wash of synths and percussion, creating an emotional texture in its rhythm and serenity in its simplicity. ‘Tago Mago’ creates more action through its dense percussion and temporal melodies, all set upon the subtle field recordings that Barrott has become infamous for. Through these he manages to create a new landscape within our own senses, using sounds of the island, his rural habitat in Ibiza is reimagined in our mind’s eye to create the ultimate utopia.
