Rob Da Bank, BBC radio, Bestival, Camp Bestival, Sunday Best, UK - A beautiful compilation, lovingly put together…transporting me from a grey rainy UK to the sunny beaches of Ibiza.
Chris Coco, Melodica - Just listening to the mix, there are some real beauties and hidden gems here. It definitely captures the spirit of Ibiza in the summer. Great.
Jon Tye, Seahawks, UK - The album sounds GREAT. A POSITIVE SONIC TONIC.
Andras Fox, Australia - Thanks for the links mate, sounding great. Will give a couple a spin this week on the radio show.
Michael Rutten, Soul Searchin’ Radio / Compost Records, Germany - La Escollera must be a very beautiful place. Full of music and vibes soothing your soul. I wanna go there. Thanks, Phil & Gavin, now I do have those pictures in my head, sunshine, salt, sea, beach, music, summer!
Dom Servini, WahWah45 Records, UK - Gorgeous sir! From Silk Rhodes and the omnipresent B.J .Smith to some glorious deep jazz. These selections got me reaching for my Speedos without delay
Danielle Moore, Crazy P - Wow, this is really beautiful!!! If you want to be transported immediately to a world away from the hustle and bustle of a busy life or mind then turn this on. Its calming, meditational and truly trippy whilst combining the most beautiful of delicate musical sounds, lyrics and rhythms throughout. I was drinking a cup of breakfast tea in Stockport and the next minute I was catapulted mentally to a white sandy beach! Get involved with this magical journey. It's good for the soul.
No Fakin’ DJs, Liverpool, UK - More Blissed Out Balearic goodness from Mr Cooper and Mr Kendrick… If it sounds this good in rainy Liverpool I need to experience it in La Escollera. Begin's Seahawks Remix needs to be the soundtrack to my summer.
Dave Harvey, Future Boogie Records, Bristol, UK - Sounding lovely, VIBES!!!
Aly Gillani | DJ Gilla, First Word Records, UK - Top notch selection as expected. Fantastic stuff.

Tucked away on the southern tip of the island in the paradisiacal Ses Salines natural reserve lies La Escollera, an exquisite eatery owned by Dani González, son of the Spanish actor Gaspar ‘Indio’ González. Next to the magical pine forest is the restaurant's beachfront terrace where resident DJs soundtrack sweltering summer afternoons with an authentic Balearic selection of undiscovered musical gems and left-of-centre audio delights that where captured on the first La Escollera CD released to critical acclaim in 2014.
Phil Cooper and Gavin Kendrick return for the new season with a record bag full of treats and treasures, distilled here to perfection is the much-requested compilation La Escollera Session Two, the connoisseur's choice and the musical gem in the heart of the island.
NuNorthern Soul label owner ‘Phat’ Phil Cooper, no stranger to Ibiza, was invited to play across the festive season of 2013 / 2014 and immediately fell in love with the venue and the fact he could play across the board, delving deep into his collection of rare and wonderful music picked up from years of extensive travelling.
Gavin Kendrick has been playing on the terrace which is at the side of the restaurant for several summers, and the space allows him to spin Jazz, Folk, Rare Groove, Hip Hop, House and Soul, to quote him, ‘this special time on the island is perfect for really getting inside your music collection, airing the b-sides and album tracks that rarely otherwise get their chance to shine’.
