Musician Vallès, real name Marc Costa, is currently residing on Ibiza making laid back electronic tracks like this gently looping track Sorrow. You can sense the inspiration of the white isle in both the sounds and the video for this track, which layers snapshots of rose-tinted memories to create something almost otherworldly.
In addition to Ibiza itself, the track takes in a variety of sources as inspiration. Costa claims 19th century impressionism as an inspiration, together with jazz and the work of Gil Scott-Herron and Roy Ayers. The track samples the Temptations' track Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me), and combines it with some sunny and wistful guitar work. The video, directed by creative collective L'Odre, is suitably dreamy, but emphasises the darkness that lies within the heart of the track.
Following the L'Étranger produced original, Vallès forthcoming Sorrow remixes EP will feature new takes from Freddie Joachim, Conrad Clifton and Skygaze. You can grab the EP when it is released on 5 February.
