Worldwide Premiere // Mark Barrott // Cirrus & Cumulus
July 16, 2015
As the label-head for International Feel, Mark Barrott has spent much of the last six years behind the scenes, creating arguably the finest purveyor of balearic music around. More recently, after moving to Ibiza two years ago, his own work has taken its place among the fine catalogue of work. His Sketches From An Island series is influenced by living on the island year-round and is a sonic snapshot of the island’s soft, cerulian glow.
Following an EP and LP, Sketches returns this summer for it’s third outing and Gilles is excited to premiere his favourite. Fans of Steve Reich will be pleased to jump straight into the the polyrhythms of ‘Cirrus & Culumus’, which also shows since of his love of Ghanan music. Even if the unpredictable summer weather doesn’t always permit shorts and vests, this album will have you reaching for them regardless.
Mark Barrott – Sketches From An Island 3 is out now on International Feel.
