Anyone who’s ever made the trip (and guessing that’s a fair few of you) quickly finds their favourite Cala on Ibiza. Whether you figure on Figueretas, feel the bass of Bassa, lounge on Llonga, dart for d’Hort, go turbo for Carbo, or shuck yer shorts on Salinas, quite simply everyone’s got their spot!
For Alex Ryan, it’s Conta – a sandy enclave due west of San An, that quite clearly has made a special impression on the young producer. Returning to VANDIT’s ranks this week after his club hit ‘Atlantis’ stole hearts back in March, ‘Cala Conta’s a track that’s has soul to bare and spirit to burn.
If ‘Conta’ the track is anything to go by, Conta is indeed a place worth hitting. Sprung on a base of influential kicks, flamed percussion and sonorous bass, Alex stirs up its ether through female vocal harmonics. Every bit as engaging, its sub-melody sets it on its course to the break, where iridescent pads, translucent synths and, finally, ripping elevation await.
Moving, magical, inspiring or just plain up-for-it, whatever you seek, ‘Cala Conta’ will deliver. Available now through VANDIT here but and you can also catch a listen to it via the label’s Soundcloud here.
