Review: My Friend Dario is a newly emerging talent in the Balearic beat making scene. He has impressed with his vital sounds covering a broad array of styles on labels like Hell Yeah and now makes his biggest statement to date with six superb tracks on Nunorthern Soul. It is a blissful affair from the off with the fluttering synths and delicate rhythms of 'Fenice' followed by more floor facing beats on 'Malvasia' and 'Mr Mellow.' The long legged drums then return with sunset vibes a plenty on 'Neve Su Acireale'. 'Campagna 2' shows off a nice deep house sound while 'Storm' is the thoughtful downtempo closer.
Review: Nunorthern Soul continues on their mission to get you horizontal no matter the weather with a new one from Yggdrasil, a Farro Islands based project by Kristan Blak. It's a neo-classical album that was discovered by label boss 'Phat' Phil Cooper who was playing G! festival on the Islands back in 2019 and was invited to check out some of the local acts. One of them was Kristan and Phil immediately fell in love with what he heard. Nw the album is finally unveiled, with plenty of subtle references to the early sounds of the iconic Cafe Del Mar, as well as neo-classical piano pieces steeped in tenderness and New Age grooves in which to get lost.
