Following their "Atalanta"12", Stockholm-based Farbror Resande Mac returns to Horisontal Mambo with this extended EP of b**earic bliss.

Through releases on labels such as Aficionado, Back to the Balearics and Is It Balearic they've carved their own niche in the tropical music climate we northeners like to embrace. Although it's hard to to escape the use of the dreaded b-word it might be the most fitting label still.

Raphael Danilo Feat. George Pappos — “Strangers, Nikkname, Innellea Rmxs” on PAULS MUSIQUE / FREERIDE MILLENIUM

DJ: “XLR8R: The EP lands with an original cut, titled "Strangers," and two remixes from German pair Innellea and Cologne artist Nikkname, both of whom flip the cut into enchanting interpretations. Danilo and Pappos' original takes cues from their home area on the edges of the Greek mountain Parnassos and the ancient sanctuary of Delphi and all three cuts focus on the stunning sound design and spiritual synth work from the Greek producers. Amevicious (La dame Noir / Nein / Blindetonation / Play Pal/ The Exquisite Pai) 'Un cool single mais trop different pour intégré mon dj set' Juan Soto (Nang / Electrique) 'what a beauty thanks a lot for this Raphael and George <3 This is something to contemplate with your eyes closed and allow your mind to go away for nearly 9 minutes into a deep introspective journey... ' Duncan Gray (Tici Taci) 'I'll be giving the Innellea remix a try, thank you!' Somerville & Wilson (Hell Yeah / ISM) 'Beautiful piece of electronic music! The Original does it the most for us. S&W' Chloe (Live At Robert Johnson / BPitch Control) 'Nice Innella remix' Paul Bonomo (Snax) 'Like the original best. Nickname Remix is also sweet. Cheers.' Patrick Vidal 'Innellea remix will be nice on the dance floor' Billy Scurry (Dublin) 'Good production and vibe' Alexander Robotnik (Hot Elephant Music) 'Innellea Remix for me' James Teej (Rekids) 'nice release, interesting soundscapes, liking the nikkname remix the best, nice odd vibes' Neil Scott (El Diablo Social Club) 'cool ep. really diggin the nikkname remix' Pulp Disco and The Outcasts (Her Majesty's Ship, Correspondant, La Dame Noir) 'Love the original and Nickname remix.
