    There also exists a genre of dance music named for Ibiza dubbed Balearic Beat, similarly to the way Goa trance is named for Goa, India. The style tries to reflect the atmosphere of Ibiza, and listeners often say they can see a Mediterranean sunset when they hear its euphoric, uplifting melodies. The atmosphere is brought on with the use of synthesized string instruments, the sound of waves, mandolins and guitars, and wispy vocals. Popular tracks in this genre include:

    "Seven Cities" (Solar Stone)
    "Offshore" (Chicane)
    "Spanish Fly" (Wayne Numan)
    "Beachball" (Nalin & Kane)
    "The Devil Went Down to Ibiza" (Alabama 3)
    "First State" (First State)
    "Café del Mar" (Energy 52)
    "Return to Ibiza" (Brad Smith)
