Quagga (Single) by Daniele Baldelli & DJ Rocca

Summer time in Ibiza and we have a real treat in store. Daniele Baldeli is one of the few DJs who can claim to be one of the founders of the eclectic Balearic sound. Take a trip back to the 70s and 80s in Northern Italy and you will fine Daniele Baldelli mixing up electronic, African and slo-mo disco records to co-create the Electronica Meccanica sub genre. Records often would be played at the wrong or variable speed to be made to fit into a wide aural tapestry of his unexpected-but-seamlessly-flowing DJ sets. This of course is an aesthetic close to us here at Real Balearic. Here Daniele pairs up with fellow Italian DJ Rocca to serve up an eclectic – electronic – Balearic track, “Quagga”.

The original mix of Quagga is a summer-hazey smoulderfest which features lazy guitar and the summer sky-lark flute of Rocca. Its slow, hot and lazy with just the right level of electronic musicality.

Remixes come from US West-Coast musical sorcerer, Aimes. First up is his early-evening “Day Into Night” remix. The sonics are one part sunset and one part slightly leftfield. Kalimbas and quirky keys and pondering bassline. Fast forward through the long night to 6am and its time to dust down the “Night Into Day Remix” from Aimes. This mix keeps the beats sweeter and more uplifting… more
