Questo Amore Segreto

I haven't had the time or the inclination this week to put together an Isolation Mix. The end of the school year brought a lot of jobs to do and working from home has eaten up a lot of time. Instead I offer you a brand new song from some Balearic legends and a long mix from one of them from 2016.

Leo Mas and Fabrice are a pair of Italian DJs and producers who found their way to Ibiza in the 80s and have been quietly making gentle waves ever since, playing records at Amnesia from '85 onward and making Italo/Balearic records when the mood takes them. They have recently hooked up with Sally Rodgers, one half of A Man Called Adam, for a single called This Unspoken Love. The song opens up like a lost Pet Shop Boys classic before heading into cosmic disco territory, analogue synths and a pulsing bass and warm drum pads pushing it into the night sky. Perfect for that start of the summer holiday feeling.

In 2016 Leo Mas assembled an eighty minute mix for Proper Magazine, titled Fine Dust. Ambient, chilled out sounds, waves of synth and long chords, Mediterranean songs, beach tunes, drifting soundscapes, the full shebang- free download too.

Looking forward to giving these a listen later.
The end of the school year is a time when you just feel exhausted isn't it? I finished last week but I'll be back a week before you I guess. People who don't work in education struggle to understand why we need the breaks we get, especially this one. And although I've been in 2 days a week for the last 6 weeks or so, working remotely and managing my team has been quite challenging at times.

Yep, agree. I think some people think we've already had 4 months off too. I've been working full days while at home. Definitely not been doing nothing.
