Chris Coco & Pete Gooding mix Gecko Beach Club Formentera: Volume Two
Released 15 July on Seamless Recordings
Gecko Beach Club Formentera: Volume Two is the latest instalment in the Gecko compilation series. Like its well-received predecessor, it captures the unique vibe and ambience of the ultra-chic, Gecko Beach Club, this time across two discs of music and compiled and mixed by the legendary Chris Coco and Pete Gooding.
Nestled on the spectacular Migjorn Beach on the magical island of Formentera, the Gecko Beach Club is an exclusive getaway, set amongst tropical gardens and sand dunes with only a stretch of clear blue Mediterranean water separating it from Ibiza. With an A-List clientele including the likes of Kate Moss and an unrivalled media guest book, Gecko is one of Europe’s most sought after beach clubs and the chill out destination of choice.
The new compilation encapsulates the intimate, laid back vibes of the Gecko Beach Club by day and by night.
The first disc, compiled and mixed by Chris Coco, embodies a relaxing day at Gecko, hanging out by the pool, taking a yoga class on one of Gecko’s many decks or, sunbathing on its stunning beaches.
Former Radio 1 DJ Chris is renowned for his laid back production and eclectic beach sets, so is the perfect choice for this album. His mix also features beach classic, Everybody Loves The Sunshine, plus, My Desire, taken from his own label, Melodica.
The second disc by Pete Gooding takes the listener on a journey through an evening on Formentera. There are many nods to the influence of bigger brother, Ibiza, yet it still retains the individuality and charm that makes both Formentera and Gecko Beach so special.
As a long standing production partner of Chris Coco and resident at Café Mambo, Pete lives and breathes music in his home country, Ibiza, and takes the tempo up a notch with tracks like, Twisted Sister by M.A.N.D.Y. and own productions, Same Old Street and, Those Eyes, the latter released on Seamless Deep.
The album comes complete with a 16 page booklet featuring a series of stunning, sun-drenched images from the Gecko Beach Club that together with the idyllic soundtrack will have you booking flights before the album is finished!
Gecko Beach Club Formentera: Volume Two delivers the perfect accompaniment to a lazy summer day as well as the sophisticated sounds for the Balearic beach bar nightlife.
