Mark Barrott - Sketches From An Island 2 (2016)
Label: International Feel Recordings | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 43:43 min | 103 mb
Follow up album to the first Sketches from an Island LP that came out back in 2014. International Feel boss Mark Barrott returns with nine new tracks of polyrhythmic new school Balearic, and just in time for the heart of summer too. Slide guitar, synth melodies, field recordings and soft percussion gel together to create a personable soundtrack to Mr. Barrott’s daily wanderings over on the cosmic island; “I am also telling stories of everyday life in Ibiza, soundtracking my life here through local field recordings, dusty synths, some African percussion and a bit of slide guitar. This music isn’t about finding the latest trends in the way other dance music is, it’s a lot more like folk music, taking mood, atmosphere and composition and threading stories around that framework."
