“Sunkissed Grooves & Blissed Out Moods” – Blank & Jones present with their twelfth” RELAX ” work the Soundtrack to the summer.
The new Songs inspire with their unique mixture of warm, acoustic sounds and subtle electronic refinements. The handpicked guest singers Coralie Clement, Zoe Durrant, Emma Brammer, Mick Roach and Jan Loechel give the Balearic Vibes a very special touch. Since its genre-defining debut in 2003, the unmistakable RELAX Sound has been part of every summer and immediately spreads a holiday feeling.
The Balearic and Mediterranean Touch runs like a common thread through the Album. No wonder, because both Ibiza and Mallorca have always served Piet, Jaspa and Andy as a retreat and source of inspiration. After dancing for the first time in Ibiza’s legendary Clubs like the KU at the end of the 80’s, and later in the 90’s as DJs in Amnesia and Eden for excessive nights, they played their Chill out Sets more and more often at special places like the Café Del Mar and the El Divino in Ibiza or also the El Cielo Café in Mallorca at the beginning of the 00’s.
Your current Residency in Ibiza is at “La Torre”, which with a breathtaking view of the sunset in the sea is the perfect place for your relax Sound. “The Feel Good Album Of The Summer”.
Piet Blank and Jaspa Jones continue their summer ritual with the twelfth episode in their Relax Edition series, released in 2006 alongside the Milchbar-Seaside series, inspired by Norderney, a sea-side resort off the North Sea. A double album which throws us back into the downtempo/acid-jazz/lounge movement which reached its peak at the end of the 90s, it is also presented in the image of the famous Café del Mar compilations, the legendary bar popular for its sunset DJ sets. It’s a place that Blank & Jones know well through playing there several times. In 2002, their chill out track Desire (Ambient Mix) even featured on Cafe Del Mar 9. Between trip hop, downtempo, Brazilian rhythms and beachside grooves, the German duo give the voice of Zoe Durrant (member of Swedish trio Little Majorette) star billing as she features on five tracks on this ultra-smooth record. Also on the vocal bill is the French Coralie Clément (sister of Benjamin Biodlay known for her collaborations with Nouvelle Vague, who also worked with Blank & Jones from 2010 with J’en rest là on the album Relax Edition 5) on the brilliant C’est pas la mer à boire, an ideal addition to a record which strives to reinterpret the concept of dolce vita. – Smaël Bouaici
