Born in a little city in the north of Italy, I am creative and I love graphic design and music. I collect pieces of vinyl and I founded “Balearic vibes”, a Mixcloud channel and touring party that I manage in all parts, from graphics to promotion.
I also work in radio as a speaker and DJ, and I organise party and events in my city.
I love Ibiza and Balearic sound!

For the first vinyl release from the eclectics label, it’s with great pleasure to offer up a four-tracker ep from Max Manetti.
For the last (nearly) 5 years eclectics have been supplying you guys with sounds, we could do with a little help from you our followers, we want this to release to go out as an actual record…
As many of us know there isn’t any money to be made by little labels like us. It’s about getting rich sounds out to those who think slightly outside the box, and we all appreciate the various mediums that music is published on. BUT there’s nothing like placing a record on the turntable putting the needle to it and waiting for the sounds to start. With your support, we can make this happen…
The other thing to mention is by us doing the campaign this way, online, pre order only it shows we can sell records. I want to show labels/shops/distros we are worth investing in for a P&D (pressing & distribution deal) When we sell 100 off our own backs the powers that be will know even more can be sold if placed in the shops as well as the online. By eclectics gaining a P&D deal we will be able to approach more artists and get more records out and continue to release high-quality music to a broader range of people.
The Papa Doc Aguila ep Features 2 original tracks from Max and 2 remixes (James Bright-Faint Waves). It’s baggy, it’s loose, it’s full of heart, it’s classic Max Manetti. The remixes are getting love from the ALFOS camp and the OG’s are creating heat in the Balearic realms… It’s a limited run of 100 and pre-order only, so if you want a copy of our first record to go out now you have the chance.
So it would be amazing if you could help us on this quest, below you can listen to the tracks and get more information on how to support us. Always Love Grant x
Hell Yeah’s summer will be all about Passages, a brand new and fantastic album from Quiroga that shows off his unique take on the Neapolitan sound. It is a soothing mix of real musicianship, laid back funk, soul and jazz stylings that wash over you, fill your heart with warmth and take you to a faraway beach where all your worries melt into the ether.
It is 11 years since Walter Del Vecchio’s last album on Cactus Island Recordings and since then he has put out a steady stream of sublime EPs on the likes of his own Really Swing as well as, of course, Hell Yeah. Label boss Marco calls him “a delicate musician” and it’s true that his deft sound is filled with beauty and detail.
A lot of attention is currently on his native Naples scene, but Quiroga doesn’t fit with the usual narrative thanks to his left of centre take on the breezy Mediterranean sounds of the city. This new album features six brand new cuts as well as six of his favourites that have previously been put out Really Swing, and is a fantastic showcase of his sound, with two of the tracks already getting big support from Italian ensemble 291out.
Gentle groove undulations and refrained vocal euphoria define opener Got Your Love, while fat bass twangs and nodding keys light up the jazzy-soul-funk fusion that is Martinica Feelings. Things get even more horizontal and romantic on The Zoist, with its steamy female coos and delicate keys, and North Hollywood Witches is a glorious bit of slow motion boogie with squelching bass and effervescing keys.
Elsewhere there are the lazy tumbles of Non Dire Notte, which is awash with acid gurgles, while glistening dreamscapes like Citto Di Mare shuffle on lush live drums and new age melodies. There are hippie vibes on Luzhin Defence which evokes sun beams breaking through the clouds, then Chiaia Sunset will melt your heart with its diffuse keys and rippling rhythms and ambient closer Bava casts you adrift into the clouds.
With many other gems along the way, this a perfect summer album that will temporarily rid you of whatever problems you may have.
Coyote / Buzzard Country A bird shrieks. This is Buzzard Country after all. Two wise old balearic owls rub the sandman from their peelers, and cast their gaze upon a new day. Stretching to greet the Sun, giving thanks, and remembering all those lucky years that went before. All the long journeys into night, days of altered states, and morning-afters staring out to sea. Veterans at this game, fixed on the horizon. Cosmic synths purr over a sleepy Rave baseline. Sparse, spare piano, and woodwinds pick out a path, to help you wind your way home. Around the houses, down forgotten roads. A Spanish guitar plays in the harbour, and the memory of yesterdays parties’ 4 / 4 boom sparks a slow, easy Acid flashback. Echoes of 90s IDM, Intelligent Dance Music, clever beats for stoners, mixing with the faded, but not jaded, vision of an introspective White Isle sunrise. There’s the spectre of a spine-tingling rush. The keys kick it off. Percussion rattling, a breakbeat shuffling, as you recall the dancers. Flamenco’s shout, stamp and clap, the songs of passion, songs for heroes, while lives less ordinary screen inside your head. Movies of your own making muddling up the photo-album snapshots, and the make-believe. Tabla touches, marimba tones, and Eastern drone adorn an oasis of Dub. Conjuring a psychedelic North Africa. A mirage where Tuareg nomads cross the Sahara, accompanied by tasikisikit and prayer. Then the backing track’s spinning in reverse, to score a coastal drive. Wayfarers on, as clouds caught in time-lapse charge against the blue. – Juno.
Chris Floris is a collector of many sounds which he loves to play in big rooms, small rooms, and oh well, he’d actually also rock your pied-a-terre or garden for what it’s worth. Expect spheres of eclectic hard-hitting sounds, ranging from Congolese folk dance to heavy acid-tinged disco, new wavy drumrolls and balearic soundscapes with peculiar percussions throughout. Chris is also a resident at radiostation Operator and regular at Radio Radio, runs music collective COURS and throws art-infused nights in Amsterdam with ODAM.
Zada is a Bucharest-based DJ and copywriter, host of the Cocodubs party and mix series. She’s been playing joyful sets since 2009, filled with everything from ska and swing revival to reggae, dancehall and dub. Her selections now combine afro, disco and house with a dub sensibility and a knack for colorful jazzy grooves.
When she isn’t recording a mix or writing something, you can find her playing parties around the city and festivals around the country. There’s a common thread running through Zada’s mixes and sets – a desire to find interesting sounds, build positive dancefloors and spread joy wherever she goes.
