With an infinite amount of thanks to whomever uploaded this to Google video. Ibiza(A Short Film About Chilling) is a dance music documentary, focussing on Ibiza 90’s music and the almost born balearic beat scene. As I remember it was originally shown on January 1st 1992, although my faulty memory might be making things up.
I’ve spent some time going through this to double check the tracks used, and present them to you for your listening pleasure. They aren’t all necessarily the exact version, as I’ve posted a couple of them before and don’t really want to repeat myself. Some of it is really quite dated these days, but as a time capsule it’s a great look back.
I was kind of surprised that Channel 4 didn’t make any attempt to capitalise on the success of this film and it’s mindshare by releasing a compilation album of any kind, but I can step up and provide you with that. Only 17 years late, but hey, you’re getting it for free. Think of me as the Mail on Sunday. On Monday.

It’s particularly interesting hearing Orde Meikle mention that the slow stuff didn’t work in Glasgow. He’s right, no-one took to the slowed down beats in the early 90s, and it’s wasn’t really until the Bristol folk started rolling smokier beats that it took to the dancefloor and even then it wasn’t really welcomed with open arms.
Also, many thanks to konspiracy at the oldskoolanthemz board who had researched this in the past, and from his link I was able to find the name of the missing JT and the Big Family track.
