Default open request for Balearic anthems/faves

this is a bit more general/vague than your typical tune ID... i enjoy collecting and playing balearic classics and would welcome recommendations of popular anthems i might've overlooked and/or your personal favourites.

happy to consider a typically eclectic range of not just mellow dance and chill-out but also indie, pop, rock ballads, new beat, hiphop, Italo, etc - from the 80's and early 90's - as long as it's all in a balearic stylee.

would prefer quality to quantity so maybe list 5-20 tunes instead of posting pages of mp3 playlists!

thanks peeps.

Bart

hi folks - thanks for the replies, much appreciated.

Det, those are both good choices. oddly enough i only ID'ed and bought Afrodizziact a couple of weeks ago! i'm surprised it had passed me by for so long. have heard it played out a few times and finally made a concerted effort to ID it. was easy to pick up a cheap copy of the 2001 reissue with Oakenfold rmx.

Chiz, that's a great list. i've only got half of them so will check out the others. very helpful! thank you.

anyone else got any tips for me...?

Barticle

I've moved this thread, because as you point out it is not really an ID request.

Why don't you join on our sister site Oldskoolanthemz ? There are plenty of Balearic heads over there who would be more than happy to get a good discussion going about anthems and faves.

cheers for the pics, dogman! added 'em to my research list.

marchwiel, no probs mate. wasn't sure which forum to use but did a search and found that the majority of Balearic ID's were on the Classics forum so went for that. i'll have to investigate OSA when i get a chance - sounds good. ta!

Glad you found OSA useful. It's a pity you didn't feel like signing up as you seem like the type of person who would fit right in. There is a big tune archive on there and a friendly community who would love this type of discussion. Why not join and see if you like it.

good call on the Talk Talk. i've got their History Revisited album which has several handy tracks, including the dub mix of Hapiness Is Easy and remixes by Justin Robertson, BBG, Dominic Woosey and - on the CD issue - Fluke (as featured in my top 20 above). definitely a "file under Balearic" release.

stonkin' line-up on that Old 'Pool flyer btw!! wow!
