Further Information

The compilation begins with Alsema Dub. The product of Bill Laswell & Jah Wobble's liquid bass ethnicity, a cooing vocal is complimented by the pulse of trumpets as an ethereal synth runs in the background. Berlin based Neapolitan duo Nu Guinea create 'A Voce 'E Napule’, an exotic funk-driven number, whilst Canadian native Pacific Coliseum creates the tropical, emotive Morning at Made's. American Alt Country icons Lambchop provide a feel-good yet bitter sweet anthem in ‘Up with the People’, before psychedelic Australians Tamam Shud create ‘Bali Waters’, a masterpiece from the cult surf movie 'Morning of the Earth'. Downtempo talents Satoshi & Makoto produce the gently-moving Crepuscule Leger, whilst Mac DeMarco's ‘On The Level’ features soothing left of centre vocals and dream-like melodies. The late English Punk Impressario Malcolm McLaren takes us on an intricate, Asian inspired journey with Obatala, before Mark's re-imagination of the classic Tears for Fears track ‘Head Over Heels’ ratchets up the drama & bliss with its widescreen vista. Up next is Trance 's iconic Ambiente , released in Germany in 1984, it marries Eastern Philosophy with Western electronics, before English hauntology talent The Advisory Circle forms a chillingly-beautiful masterpiece with ‘Sundial’. American songwriter and composer Richard Torrance provides the groove-laden, percussion-filled ‘Anything's Possible’, whilst Swing Out Sister's classic ‘After Hours’ transports us into the Twilight via it's 80's jazz refrains. In compiling La Torre Ibiza - Volumen Tres, Mark Barrott and Pete Gooding create a sonic vision of paradise; a utopian declaration of freedom, one that conceptualises their intent through musical selections. Despite times changing, we are left frozen in a soundscape of sizeable proportion, whilst the healing-like nature of the records administer a type of medicine that can not be found elsewhere. We listen, in the present, to the Ibizan soundscape of old, nurtured and soothed in a Meditteranean bliss & beautifully re-framed for the modern world.
