It’s nearly the end of August so most of summer is well and truly behind us. Don’t be too sad though – we’ve teamed up with Ocean Beach Ibiza and resident DJ Tom Crane who’ve created this awesome end of season playlist to keep you in the summer mood for just a little while longer!
Ocean Beach Ibiza is located on the S’Arenal waterfront in San Antonio, and hosts daily parties seven days a week. Their closing party is scheduled for Friday 5th October. For more info please visit: www.oceanbeachibiza.com/. Words from DJ Tom Crane.
Huge track of the summer, great stuff from the 2 lads from Manchester. As you can guess from the name it’s a very tribal sounding piece of production. Good stuff.
2) SYAP-GOOD STUFF PIANO
One of my favourite tracks for a while, I’m not sure exactly where the sample used is from but the motown style works really well with the rolling baseline and that sound works really well with my style of music.
3) MATTEI AND OMICH
Awesome tune from these Italian lads, really driving baseline that always creates more of a groove to a dance floor, good track to use early in a set to create a vibe with.
4) QUIM MANUEL O ESPIRITO SANTO-SENHOR DOUTOR (ADAM PORT EDIT)
Probably my favourite from this list actually, incredible tune, great vocals alongside great guitar riffs, just a great track anytime anyplace. And with Adam Port behind this edit it was in good hands, excellent work by the German producer.
5) DEMUIR-DERRICK DOES DISCO (FIRST STANZA)
Brilliant track from this man, beautiful violin carries the tune perfectly, lots of good build ups and drops, I’m happy to say I’ve just signed one of my tracks to Demuirs label. Great guy , great producer, great DJ, we were lucky enough to have him as a guest of ours last year at Ocean Beach for Soul Heaven.
6) VANILLA ACE-HARLEM BOUNCE (ANGELLO FERRERI REMIX)
Well Vanilla Ace is an old friend I started on the circuit with years back so I’m happy he has made this top 10, with Angello on remix duties. Great funk sample with the sax destroying dance floors, always gets a floor rocking.
7) MOON ROCKET AND RE-TIDE- UNLIMITED LOVE
A really great pumping track, always loved on the dancecfloor, great samples, the talking vocal really works and holds the tune together perfectly, very disco sample with quite a tech baseline, really good works from these guys. The second half of the tune with the “don’t make me wait” vocal is awesome.
8) TODD TERRY, GYPSYMEN- BABARABATIRI (CHRIS MOODY REMIX)
Fantastic sample with incredible and loud horns throughout, this track was originally done by house legend Todd Terry and there are lots of remixes out there, this one just works really well in my sets, I’m a huge fan of Todds so defiantly needed him somewhere in the top 10, guaranteed to melt a dance floor.
9) MY DIGITAL ENEMY-ON A RAGGA TIP
Great remix of SL2’s original, quite a uk sound to the beats and base, probably not one for the minimal heads out there but a tune none the less with fantastic ragga sample from thew original which I’m proud to say I still play regularly. Great peak time Friday pool party track.
10) CHAKA KENN-WHY WASTE YOUR TIME
Well what to say about this, its a great twist on the original from Bizarre Inc, it’s been housed up a bit to make it feel current when the original was release in 1992 so its well over 20 years old. Great use of the original parts so it has the original feel feeling with the vocals being chopped up and used wisely with mainly only the hooks used. Everyone knows the original piano and vocal even if you didn’t realise. Fantastic song all round and guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser.
