Our Friends in the Isle of Wight…

At 24:00 BST on Saturday 20th of June the ‘Night Flight’ section of our Chill Out Tent Around the World event touches down on the Isle of Wight, UK. Our host is local DJ Jesuisanglais (Richard to his mates) who’s prepared an hour of dreamy ambient and downtempo paired with some equally chilled visuals.

In collaboration with friend and photographer Ollie Coleman he attempted to capture a positive moment of the lockdown experience, a chance to have some time to relax and engage with nature and family. You’ll hear field recordings of birdsong and wind in the trees that make their way into the mix. If you visit the Isle of Wight you’ll catch Richard playing records at the island’s answer to the Cafe del Mar, the Hut at Colwell Bay.

Our Friends in Bali…

We’re busy putting the finishing touches to out next big event, the Chill Out Tent – ‘Around the World’ stream next week. It’s pretty exciting to see the global journey taking shape and realising the quality of the performances we’ll be sharing and the great international crews we’ll be working with.

We’re really looking forward to linking up with our friends in Bali, that’s Baliaric FM and Adrian Giordano who are hosting a poolside session at the incredibly beautiful Taman Bebek. This will also feature a chilled set from Indonesian DJ Seabass with support from local musician Baba Agus who will improvise with flute and tabla. 

Broadcasting from the beautiful and vibe-rich island of Bali, Baliaric.fm is run by music lovers, for music lovers. The station plays 24/7, including playlists, shows, and live-streams from studios, private villas and other stunning locations.

The venue for the session, Taman Bebek is now an iconic boutique hotel perched on the Sayan Ridge in Ubud, Bali. It dates back to the 1930s, when the Canadian ethno-musicologist, Colin McPhee and his anthropologist wife, Jane Belo built a Balinese house and beautiful garden on the edge of the ridge above the magnificent Ayung River valley. During the 1930s this was a playground and source of inspiration to the rich and famous.

In 1980, when Bali lover, landscape artist and writer Made Wijaya acquired the land, only the foundations of these houses remained. He restored it to it’s former glory and it became a favourite hang out of jet setters like David Bowie, Yoko Ono, Mick Jagger and Francis Coppola. We’ll be able to experience it soon too, can’t wait…
