Balcony Beats #29, 1st Anniversary – Tarifa – 4 April 2021

This set was entirely planned while “on tour”, spending a week travelling around Cádiz province in southern Spain.

This set was entirely planned while “on tour”, spending a week travelling around Cádiz province in Southern Spain – mountains, beaches, reservoirs, salt flats… As this mix celebrates the first year of Balcony Beats livestreams, the music is all favourites from the past 12 months, with a “rave on the beach” upbeat edge to it.

The best place to listen to this set is on Mixcloud. Please consider supporting this series and the artists featured if you enjoy this set – click the “Subscribe” or “Select subscription” link above. Other listening/viewing options are at the bottom of the post.
