a selection of modern Balearic moments in music all inspired simply by the sunshine featuring acts such as
The Xx, Animal Collective, Mudd and Tony Watson. This release combines two new artists that feature on
the album along with exclusive remixes.

intense techno groove that takes hold and doesnt let go for five and half minutes of heads down dance floor
