Silver City’s Fernando Pulichino makes a welcome debut on Coyote’s ever-essential Is It Balearic?
Fernando’s accomplished and deeply funky live bass and guitar hooks standout across this classy three track EP. The A side ‘Shining’ is an epic 11 minute hypnotic trip. Gently rolling bongos, that loose bass and gorgeous delayed soaked effects combine to ensure that this should be a main stay on playlists all summer long from Buenos Aires to Bali. On the flip side first comes ‘Horizonte Rojo’; a cruising deep Balearic house groove. Again the live bass providing a bedrock to delectable whirling synths and ecstatic dub delays. ‘Karmic’ closes the EP on a more soulful disco tip. Rhodes style keys ride over loose percussion, a jazzy brass sequence providing a serene twilight moment.
Ibiza Voice Score: 8/10
