We’ve featured the small but perfectly formed label NuNorthern Soul label before and we always preface our pieces by repeating that it’s not a Northern Soul label; rather it specialises in classy soulful house, chill and dance music, much with a distinct Balearic flavour. The label was formed in 2012 in London by Phil Cooper and after a spell in Bali, it’s now based in Ibiza, so you can guess just where the NuNortherenrs are coming from.
To celebrate their 10th Anniversary of releasing some of the best laid back tunes and a Café Del Mar moments, the label is gearing up to release a very special limited edition vinyl box set, featuring 10 carefully selected Balearic chillers from Cooper’s back catalogue.
The collection features exclusive reworks from longstanding label talents such as B.J. Smith, Jim Baron (aka Ron Basejam) and Ragz Nordset, alongside Jon Tye (aka Captain Sunshine), the late Ryo Kawasaki, Torn Sail, George Koultalieris, My Friend Dario, JIM, Tambores En Benirras (aka DJ Gripper), Willie Graff, Andi Hanley, BEGIN and Sun Fanatics – all crafted with love to take you somewhere special.
Indeed Mr C say: “My own personal mission is to make Balearic music much more accessible to people. Balearic is to me music that takes you to other places – a journey through music with no boundaries or genres.”
‘NuNorthern Soul 10th Anniversary Box Set’ will be released on August 26th, 2022. Meditation and mindfulness never sounded so good!
