Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy serves up a second helping of ‘Balearic Breakfast’ with another phenomenal compilation for Heavenly Recordings. Like 2022’s acclaimed first Balearic Breakfast album, this one features eleven tracks that drift between space rock and soul, disco and deep house, ambient and electronica, old and new, fast and slow.
In the words of Cosmo herself, these tracks are a “hodge-podge of chill out, spiritual jazz, deep soul, percussive house, quirky disco, indie-dance and what may ‘traditionally’ be called ‘balearic’ (whatever that may be).”
In the words of Heavenly, these albums are “horizontal masterpieces that should be prescribed on the NHS as they’re filled with the kind of blissed out music that’s guaranteed to lift you out of the mundane and the everyday, wherever you are.”
Many of the tracks on ‘Balearic Breakfast: Volume 2’ have never been available on vinyl before.
Both volumes of ‘Balearic Breakfast’ are available as a double CD, with sleeve notes by Bill Brewster (DJ History).
Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy is a highly respected and experienced musical selector and curator, founder of the album listening event and content hub, Classic Album Sundays (BBC Breakfast Television remarked, “Classic Album Sundays treat our best-loved records like great symphonies”), and an authority on music, sound and the vinyl renaissance. She was mentored by David Mancuso at his seminal Loft parties in New York City. Together they co-produced the compilation series ‘David Mancuso Presents The Loft’ and worked together on David’s record label, The Loft Audiophile Library of Music. In 2000, David told Time Out New York City, “She is very devoted and very pure about the music. She’s one of the only people I would trust, both with the music and with the equipment, to fill in for me.”
Murphy is one of the musical hosts at The Loft, the co-founder of the Lucky Cloud Loft parties in London, and DJs internationally on the world’s best sound systems and dancefloors. As a producer, Colleen has remixed Roisin Murphy, Mildlife, The Rapture, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Beardyman, Candi Staton, Two Bears, Phenomenal Handclap Band, Cantoma, Horace Andy, Chaka Khan & more under her Cosmodelica moniker, and as DarkStarr Diskotek with Ashley Beedle. Along with former Captain Beefheart guitarist Gary Lucas she recorded and produced as Wild Rumpus.
