Various - Pacha Ibiza Chillout Classics

This three disc set is a pleasing, if mostly obvious, mix of downtempo tunes stretching back over the past 25 years or so. Choices drift between house, dub, electronica and soul, and range from the laidback to the near comatose. Highlights include Sebastien Tellier’s 'La Ritournelle' (my own dream sunset track), Primal Scream’s 'Higher Than The Sun' and Groove Armada’s 'At The River' (as appropriated by M&S). Be warned: those unfamiliar with the history of Balearic music and its inclusive spirit may be caught out by the likes of Simple Minds, Chris Rea and Simply Red. All in all, a decent barbeque purchase.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
