Phil Mison, a DJ who arrived in Ibiza for the first time in 1993, has been pushing sublime music throughout his career.
His latest release under the moniker Cantoma, “Out of Town” is the subject of a promotional return to the island, and guest sets at
amongst other places, the International Music Summit. Broadcast over the interweb by Ibiza Sonica, Phil inspired the
dining delegates in Ibiza sunshine yesterday afternoon. And none were more inspired than the team here at Balearic Mystique.
We are proud to promote Phil’s new album, that you can buy here, but more proud of the fact he will be treating us to
2 hours of pure Balearic bliss at the LAST NIGHT A DJ SAVED MY LIFE Industry launch for Balearic Mystique this
If that wasn’t enough, Phil will also be appearing at part 2 of the public launch Acid House/Balearic Weekender at Corsica Studios
and The Light Bar in London on 5thLearn More

Gil Scott Heron

As the world expectantly waits for the breaking of a new tidal wave, which is slowly building off-shore of popular culutre, the force behind the squal patiently attend to their promotion, posting samples and new images, doing interviews and generally steadying themselves for the ride. The whispers under the surface are growing into chat, and will soon become roars, drowed out by the white noise of the wave flooding the deserted coastal outpost where once we were spoiled by horizon gazing poets telling us how we felt. Soon the emigmatic, and celebrated poet of a generation gone by will save us again with concious lyrics and heart swelling soul.
Like for most of my generation – born in ’81 - Gil Scott Heron was the guy that made The Bottle. A strange paradox of soulful groove that at times seems to tip its hat at the carefree, but on other more introspective times holds a haunting message of our proximity to excess and oblivion. It’s a floor filler of it’s era, and ours. The man’s significance as a social commentator, a instigator of a kind of intellectual revolution, a firestarter, was sadly something that I became aware of much later on in my musical education.
This next release, courtesy of a resiliant, humourous and clearly philosophical Heron, was made possible by the production support of Richard Russel at XL Records, and for me shows that there is still hope for the world – so a thanks to Mr. Russel for that. If popular culture can embrace this gift of a human being once again, and not censor him, I think the next generation has a chance of growing up aware of the system and realizing their power to change it. I hope this record inspires new poets and musicians to articulate themselves and reach forward for a smarter future, rather than continuing to relish in the style obsessed, warring, apathetic, all consuming personality current pop music and popular culture seem to be promoting. Big up Mr. Heron, seen.
Of course I sound like an old man, not as old as Gil, but it’s a complaint I’m sure the younger generation are quite bored of. Something about this reincarnated Gil Scott Heron gives me hope that we can again all be one and rise up against injustice, financial slavery and excessive waste of our most precious treasures.Learn More
