DJ Rob de Blank is a very new name to the chillout scene but his track, El Nido, really speaks. As he states himself, El Nido is “The musical homage to one of the most dreamlike regions of our earth.”
El Nido, the small port city in the Philippines, is said to be a fantastical and dreamlike place, heavily inspiring this track, and concept album. The atmospheric tracks are complemented by sensitive vocals, however in some tracks, they may feel like a bit of a miss and stand out as slightly damaging. The beats as part of a great sound collage, subordinate to the omnipresent surfaces and create a sea of sounds and emotions that you just want to immerse yourself in.
