What kind of music do the best musicians in the world play when they can play what they really love? Exactly, this is the music we like to play!
Choosing the right vibe for every moment, the sessions spans from beautiful downtempo songs to more energetic club oriented tracks flowing through tempo, style, time and genre with one aim: Having a cool time.
From his personal carrer to his work behind Bassofondo and his associations with Spandau ballet's funding member Steve Norman or the legend DJ Alfredo Fiorito (initiator of the "balearic sound" and one of the creators of house music) to his many collaborations with DJs like Angel Cielo, DJ Susso or Carlos Diaz .
"Bassofondo is an Ibiza based electronica, downtempo and house project of the artist and music producer Rafa Peletey. But it's also a DJ set with a very particular character, mixing Nu soul with smooth jazz, soulful house with retro cool and club infused jazzy sounds. To give you the idea, you could hear Miguel Migs next to Steely Dan and The Reel People after Boz Scaggs or Keb Mo.
The history of music is combined here to create an otherwise unexpected homogenic mix, which was in fact the concept that originated the now classic Balearic Sound.
Rafa retakes this philosophy and creates a unity where disparity may have been expected and achieves a coherent atmosphere with the brew of different genres and tempos. Nonetheless, all of them share the coolness as a common denominator, and timeless quality is achieved in the field of infinite musical possibilities".
