Tracks doing the rounds
Everyone comes to Ibiza for the beautiful landscape and the infectious vibe that springs every step on the island. But, us dancefloor inclined fellows live and breathe for those killer tracks we hear in a club.
Whether it’s while the evening is starting to heat up, or five minutes till closing time, these are the clear favourites that have got all the endorphins and ice cannons flowing for the first half of the 2016 season.
Danny Daze – Swim
‘Swim’ intoxicates you with its stabbing riff as it creeps onto the sound system. Massive one for plenty of DJs this summer from Jennifer Cardini and Kolsch, to the mighty Sven Vath.
Emanuel Satie – Come As You Are
Frankfurt’s finest Emanuel Satie so far this year has clocked up over 30 released tracks. His remix of ‘I Get Deep’ is still fairly large in Ibiza, but this track is its definite predecessor
Dubfire, Oliver Huntemann – Fuego (Julian Jeweil Remix)
Joseph Capriati is also called up to remix Dubfire and Oliver Huntemannm, but Julian Jeweil’s touch is killer and will continue to be dancefloor fuel all through August.
Krankbrother – Circular Thing (Hot Since 82 Remix)
Little summer heater via remix work from Hot Since 82 on Circus. Label owner Yousef gave this is a spin during his ANTS visit, while Amnesia and Space have had its fair share of listenings.
La Fleur – Waves
Enchanting melodic number for Berlin’s Watergate Records. Sasha introduced this to our ears during his trip to Circoloco and he’s likely been dropping it on Space’s Terraza at Elrow as well.
Cirez D – In The Reds
Who doesn’t love a bit of Eric Prydz? Whether it’s nostalgia from his 2000 hits, or material from his pseudonym artist names Pryda and Cirez D. Prydz always rules, his latest work under his techno alias being no exception.
Hector Couto – Get It On
“Let’s get it onnnnn” we are told. On DC-10’s terrace, in Amnesia, or on the discobus at 7am. Alright, alright. The overlapping percussion and ascending bass notes makes this a catchy ride. Jump on board.
Audion – Mouth To Mouth (Riva Starr Remix)
To mark 10 years since Matthew Dear’s ‘Mouth To Mouth’ several artists have remixed ‘Mouth To Mouth’ including Dense & Pika, c2, Guy Gerber and Dubfire. Riva Starr’s is a frontrunner with its funky and celestial qualities.
Marc Romboy & Stephan Bodzin – Atlas (Adriatique Remix)
Adriatique remix a monster track from two fine producers, doing it jusitce with gigantic synth chords that have ascended onto Space’s cherished terrace during Carl Cox’s last Revolution inside.
&ME – Shadows
Each year &ME has a standout track for the summer. It’s still early days, but this one from the start of 2016 is definitely praiseworthy. Davide Squillace took us to moody depths of ‘Shadows’ in Circoloco.
Raffa FL – How We Do
Club track sampling a hip hop staple from the 2000s. The year was 2004, it was a simpler time, flip phones and dial-up internet was the best of technology, while 50 Cent and The Game ruled the rap waves.
Jungle Brothers – I’ll House You
Lastly, a 1990s bomb that has been brought to our attention thanks to Marco Carola, who drew for this at Music On and during his Circoloco appearance. We also caught wind of Luciano playing it at Cocoon in July.
