Bargrooves: The Ibiza Summer Collection
Mixed by Oliver Lang
Label: Seamless Reccordings
Released: June 25th 2007
The sophisticated sound of summer on the White Isle
Forget the doom-mongers who proclaim that Ibiza is over. Last year, the Balearic paradise reported its busiest season for five years as music lovers flocked to the clubbing capital for a summer of sun-drenched fun.
Ibiza is a unique place where you can dance night and day and experience the crazy but magical atmosphere that only the White Isle can generate. It will never be over. And that’s why Bargrooves are paying homage to the music, clubs and people that make it so special with their second release of 2007 – The Summer Ibiza Collection.
If there’s one venue that sums up the Ibiza spirit - rocking all day and night to a soundtrack of premier house music, then the Bora Bora beach bar is it. How fitting then, that this year’s resident DJ, Oliver Lang, takes charge of Bargrooves latest instalment – direct from Ibiza to your ears.
As essential as this season’s hottest new shades, The Ibiza Summer Collection is a comprehensive guide to the more sophisticated side of the number one clubbing destination.
CD one captures a blissful afternoon spent sipping mohitos at a sun-drenched beach bar, with hot electro-tinged house tracks like Seb Davidson’s ‘Bondi’ and Timo Garcia’s ‘Magic Roundabout’ the perfect accompaniment to dancing barefoot in the open air.
CD two is the sound of a packed terrace in Ibiza town, laden with house movers and shakers like the vocal delights on Tim Fuller’s ‘Slightest Touch’ and the massive No Dolls’ ‘He’s Getting On My Nerves’.
Ian Pooley and Majik J’s driving, piano-led ‘Heke (Pooley’s Gone Balaeric Mix)’ takes the mix forward into late-night deep and delicious territory where Oliver Lang’s own wonky house triumph, ‘Dancing Girls’ takes the roof off before a grand finale arrives in the shape of Bob Sinclar and his anthem ‘Feel For You’ with Swedish house master Axwell on remix duties.
A compilation which sounds as good as it looks – don’t pack your suitcase without it!
