Sheer Rocks is an idyllic open-air restaurant on the west coast of Antigua. It boasts incredible sunsets, daybeds, and a plunge pool as well as soul-soothing atmospheres, and since the early 2010s has built a deserved international reputation thanks to its great Mediterranean menu. The restaurant has hosted sets from the likes of Danny and Ilona Rampling, Darren Emerson, Nigel Gore (Back 2 Life), Alan Russell (Black Market Records), and many more; now owners Kate and Alex Rocks have reunited with old friend and Cafe Mambo resident Pete Gooding, who has put together a perfectly breezy feel-good compilation to go with the world-renowned restaurant. Hand-selected by Gooding and Phil Dockerty, cofounders of Secret Life Music, Sheer Rocks: Music On The Rocks Volume One includes some key musical highlights and some of the hottest names in balearic music, and is a great sonic window into the Sheer Rocks world. Things kick off with a perfectly horizontal cover of "On The Beach" by Nick & Samantha, setting an expertly beachy vibe right away, before sun-kissed reggae from renowned chill-out producer Afterlife, long-legged disco from Midnight Mystery Club, and serene sunset sounds from Paqua. Norwegian producer Telephones contributes his excellent "Hot Destinations For A Cooler You," originally released on his The Ocean Called EP on Gerd Jansen's taste-making Running Back label in 2014 (RB 047EP), and fellow Norwegian Rune Lindbaek teams up with Øyvind Blikstad on the truly wonderful "North." Sunset master José Padilla contributes his Brazil-influenced "Mojame," a collaboration with Mark Barrott originally released on Padilla's So Many Colours on International Feel in 2015 (IFEEL 042CD/LP). Other highlights include Italian DJ-and-production duo Balearic Gabba Sound System's remix of "So Good" by Danish band The Ball And The Wall feat. Clara Sofie, "Taza De Oro" by Waldemar Schwartz (Golf Channel Recordings), and "Moogie Wonderland" by Simon Mills aka Napoleon from legendary production duo Bent. Also includes tracks by Jacob Gurevitsch, Luminodisco, No Logo feat. Ashibah, and Private Agenda.
