The breeze blows cool and easy throughout Mark Barrott’s “Baby Come Home,” a thumping bit of deck chair electro tugged along gently by a beaming, blissful synth line. Barrott’s been hopscotching across genres and countries for a few years now, founding the International Feel label in 2009 before relocating to Uruguay, and then to Ibiza after that. It’s the latter that’s most audible in “Baby Come Home,” the dreamy textures of Balearic lapping gently like waves on sand. But more than that, the song could also pass for the karaoke track to a lost ’70s soft rock classic. Its mood is relaxed, its pacing unhurried.
