If anyone DJing today is the epitome of Balearic, it’s probably, Phil Mison. His eclectic taste; his history, playing Cafe Del Mar in its heyday in the 90s alongside Jose Padilla; his consistently great production work as Cantoma; and his dry sense of, well, everything; mean he is often seen as the DJs DJ, the carrier of the Balearic flame. So, yep, you get the picture, we think he’s pretty good, and a very nice bloke too. So here’s a mix he made exclusively for The Chill Out Tent.
New music from balearic legend Phil Mison is always highly anticipated and this new album from his Cantoma project is no exception, a sublime slice of shimmering summer beauty. An essential investment, available via Bandcamp here, for digital and if you shop around you might still be able to get one of the very limited gatefold vinyl double packs.
‘The new decade dawns with a message of love and hope from Balearic envoy Phil Mison and his fourth LP under the Cantoma moniker. Joined by old friends and new acquaintances, Señor Misono draws on a lifetime of record collecting, selection and songwriting to pack ‘Into Daylight’ with the essence of the Balearic movement, from the Café del Mar and beyond.
The album features guests Quinn Lamont Luke, Hush Forever, Suad Khalifa, Apres Midi, David Philips and Luna Asteri and was recorded between London and Barcelona.’
