Cliktrips likes the beach, palm trees, mountain hikes, desertscapes, forest walks, the jungle, tropical islands, swimming pools, lake swims, rocky seaside cliffs, sunsets, soundbaths, hot tubs, the occasional cold plunge, bicycle rides, road trips, spritzes of all kinds, lots of snacks and the colors pink and green. Cliktrips also enjoys late night techno parties, balearic rooftop hangs, weird weekenders, tropical sounds, trippy disco, and dancing ‘til dawn.

 

Island Vibez 

Island Vibez 

If you’ve been reading Cliktrips for awhile, you know there are two things I really like: tropical islands and good vibes. I even named one of my Spotify playlists “Island Vibez” which always seems to make people laugh at me, right before they ask me to share it with them. It’s a mix of roots, reggae and dub that’s perfect for CHILLIN.

Which brings me to this accurately titled Balearic Reggae compilation. It’s a well-curated mix of disco-inspired roots and reggae tunes primed for the dancefloor or a beach party near you. My faves include Peter Tosh’s “Dubbing-Buk-In-Hamm Palace; “Oriental Taxi” by Sly Dunbar; and the funky “Too Expensive” by Keith Hudson. 

It’s part of an extensive 11 volume Balearic series that EMI released back in 2012 highlighting the Balearic sounds of leftfield dance, house, rock, pop, ambient, electronic and more. I’m still combing through the series, but Wondering Sound did a pretty extensive review of each volume. 

Check out the full Balearic Reggae comp over on Spotify.
