Various Artists ‚Äď Vagabundos 2012
LABEL: Cadenza Records
GENRE:¬†Dance – House
With wide-reaching influences and diverse musical citations from across the dance music spectrum, ‚ÄúVagabundos 2012‚ÄĚ carries the essence of the original Balearic Beat. It is perhaps the modern sound of Ibiza ‚Äď with moments of intense darkness and life-affirming sunshine rhythms, the mix Luciano creates is like a sublime painting of the island which contains all the colours and gradations of the rainbow. From house to techno, to human and machine created rhythms, sweet voices and warped vocals, blissful beach melodies and mind-twisting notes, classic Chicago beats and futuristic grooves, the mix is a deeply absorbing, multi-dimensional electronic fusion. There is so much wonderful density in this small 76 minute package, it seems almost counter-intuitive to dissect it.
Available in the UK and Ireland only.
You can catch Luciano at Cadenza Vagabundos in Pacha, Ibiza, every Sunday from May 17th to October 7th.
