Balearic Mike / The Charts / From LuvDup To Folk Ibiza

To accompany Mike`s interview I asked him to prepare a few playlists – to give people a feel for the music played during his residencies, and also to demonstrate how over the years the music spun at “balearic” events has changed and evolved. We decided to post these charts separately, since the interview itself is so epic. Hopefully you`ll be able to peruse now at your leisure over a morning coffee, tea, or caffeine-free herbal infusion.

Words and selections by Balearic Mike Smith.
