Lush, lythe and loose Balearic funk from Gala Drop. A Portuguese collective with a penchant for expansive psychedelia, sophomore album II finds them in rude form channelling the insistence of Detroit techno with a blissfully panoramic taste of the Mediterranean Sea. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Golf Channel.

9/10 Andrew Customer review, 23rd December 2014
Pretty much anything on Golf Channel is worth investigating, they are going from strength to strength at the moment, some terrific 12" 's appearing from DJ Nature, Telefone, Mind Fair and more picking up serious attention from the deep house / balearic mafia. So to Gala Drop, the album 2 pretty much bridges between detriot electronica and ibizan sunsets, quite neatly. The Lisbon based group collaborsting with Parliament's Jerrald James to draw on slow mo disco, touches of afrobeat but mostly ambient, balearic spaced out groovers.
All Things caries a slight melancholy vibes, offset by delays, and a nice melody. Other highlights include 'Big City' and 'Samba Da Maconha', but really the album hangs together well as a whole. Perhaps not the most timely release, I imagine that given a bit of sunshine this would be a soundtrack to balmy evenings. Fans of Saint Germain should certainly give this a check.
