Here is part 4, the final Beatz & Carrots 1 Year Anniversary Special. I did this compilation in July 2011, a few months before I started this blog... Now that I shared all my pre-blog Beatz & Carrots selections - everything you will find here in the future will be selected live & fresh ;-)

I will be back in a few days with a first selection of some Balearic favourites of mine - a musical idea & feeling that has been growing strong on me during the last year. I have known of the term ''Balearic'' for a long time - but only began to have an understanding of it after reading Last Night A DJ Saved My Life - The History Of The Disc Jockey by Bill Brewster & Frank Broughton last summer... I will try to link to some great articles in my next post talking about Balearic music - until then I will leave you with this quote by Balearic legend Alfredo: “My definition of Balearic; its a music mostly, eclectic, happy, sexy, not cheesy, that gets its roots in the origins of dance music and flourishes on the dancefloor, as a sound that makes you forget genres, or categories and you just enjoy it, listen to it, dancing and sharing it. Beat poetic, but real!“



  1. all this leaves me speechless, so much well chosen music with many tracks unknown. beat poetry indeed, thank you fiete, sehr sehr fein :)
