Cliffys’ Essential Balearic

The top 50 essential Balearic treasures.

Everyone has their own thoughts on what the true Balearic sound consists of, but the truth is there are no rules. ‘Balearic-a’ by definition is a range of sounds and genres that all fit a certain aesthetic. So for me, it’s all about a time before the sounds of the later 90’s that took over the clubs.

My guide to all things Balearic, from the accidental anthems to the leftfield masterpieces. This is essential music for the soul, 50 beautifully crafted tracks, tracks you can imagine Alfredo or Jon Sa Trinxa playing to a beautiful sunset on the beach. Understated, sexy, and far from the ‘anthem’ culture that often grips the world of dance music.
