Residentes Balearicos are Luca Averna and Ale Doretto, both originally from around Venice (IT), now living in Ibiza, where Luca is also a Resident DJ at Pikes (Homies), Sunset Ashram and El Silencio, and Ale plays at Chirincana and Malanga Café. The duo signed their first EP in 2020 with Music For Dreams and went on to release on labels such Shades Of Sound, Archipelago Records, Cala Tarida Music, Balearic Ensemble, SirsSounds, and again on MFD. They often pick melodies and rhythms from the late-disco and early-house-music soundscape imaginary, sometimes traditional song writing is involved, sometimes the outcome is darker and powerful. As their new track ‘Smoke & Fly’ drops on NuNorthern Sou’s Summer Selections Four EP, DMCWorld goes Back To Mine with this talented Balearic pair…
Khruangbin – White Gloves
Khruanghbin never stop to mesmerize me with their beautiful guitar licks, groovy yet soft , but most of all some really simple and catchy basslines.

Lucio Battisti – Ancora tu
Here’s one of the best Italian songwriters, in this album he moved to a Disco sound with great results. I’ve been listening to this track since I was a child.

Voilaaa – Fighting Slowly
One of the best producers at the moment is Voilaaa, AKA Patchwork and many other aliases. And this is just a great track.
Reuben Vaun Smith – Photosynthesizer
One of the producers I like a lot from the Balearic scene is Reuben Van Smith, a nice use of synthesizers, great melodic lines, really great work.

Residentes Balearicos – Smoke & Fly
I listen to this song every day and it makes me feel good. Reggae, Electronic, Acid, organic Balearic sound, perfect for the Balearic feeling!

Casino Royale – Suona Ancora
Casino Royale are one of my favourite bands ever. I grew up with this music and I still listen at home when I need to relax my mind and my soul.

Miles Davis – Black Satin
I worked 10 years in a music shop and my friend Renato loved to listen Miles. At the beginning it was difficult for me to go inside the sound, but after listening many times I finally understood the world of Davis and this is my favourite album by him. I usually listen this record when I’m chilling at home.
