This Time Around - Barnaby Bruce

The first release on new Tokyo and Hong Kong-based label Palms & Charms delivers a Balearic reflection on the paths of our lives through space and time. The title track sets a tropical scene, with a Riviera feel.
On side B, ‘Feel the Wheel’ is an instrumental rumination on the experience of work. The staccato sounds of Afro-Cuban bata punctuate a slice of understated synth-funk with an essence of boogie.
Max Essa (Jansen Jardin, Is It Balearic?) offers up two complimentary mixes of ‘This Time Around’. The ‘Heaven in the Afternoon Dub Mix’ brings a sophisticated post-prandial-dub feel to proceedings. Sip on a rum and ice and gravitate towards the dance floor, seduced by the interplay between the guitar, agogo and the bassline. Meanwhile the ‘Euro Terrace Mix’ takes things deeper – the stabs and subtle arpeggios driving your feet towards a better future. The night is young and the terrace is becoming busy.
“Very good and very Balearic.” Bill Brewster — “Very impressive… Bruce displaying some particularly classy production skills over two tracks.” Juno Download — “Feel The Wheel (is) a subtle clav punched groove that has every chance of becoming a Balearic classic.” Dr Rob — Test Pressing “This is a wicked, summer-drenched Balearic masterpiece! Great piece of music to listen to after typhoon passes by.” Ken Hidaka —
