Phil Mison is an unassuming goliath of Balearic music. In the early nineties Phil arrived to play in Ibiza as a music officionado masquerading as a milk man, and left as a DJ legend. One famous mix inspired future Pacha Magazine editor, and Richie Hawtin manager, Ben Turner to write a glowing ode to Phil’s brilliance behind the decks. At the time written Musik Mag, the sentiments contained in the article have undoubtably been felt by many a punter since. Phil currently produces under the name Cantoma, but has also been partner in sublime crime with Pete Herbert on the infamous Reverso 68 releases. Last June, during the International Music Summit and the Last Night a DJ Saved My Life launch weekend, Balearic Mystique were spoiled by adding Phil to two line-ups within a week! Despite challenging circumstances at the first gig, Phil expertly turned it round, and then treated the Light Bar gathering to 90 mins of one of the best mixes I’ve ever heard. Phil we salute you. Cantoma has recently released its second album “Out of town”, you can buy a piece here.
