FOR THE EVENING…
This is the point at which the sun would usually be setting in the Ibiza sky. Wherever you are, the filtered bass on Shakarchi & Stranéus’s rumbling ‘Clinton Hill’ makes for a great warm-up track.
‘Carrie’ is more downtempo than most things involving Alex Metric – listen out for some exquisite uplifting chords. Cassius then increase the tempo with a classic piano-loaded track that should have everyone nodding along as the acid line builds.
David Penn pushes the envelope that little bit further with more pianos and a driving beat, before ‘Hypercolour’ sees CamelPhat putting their distinctive progressive bass sound to a contrasting vocal from indie favourites Foals.
John Summit takes the reins with ‘Deep End’, which would surely have been the hit of Ibiza this summer – had there been one. ‘Mino’ is a percussive tribal number provided by Toolroom Records’ Ben Remember. Then it’s Mark Knight – the boss of that aforementioned label – with an update on the classic ‘Man With A Red Face’.
Horse Meat Disco are here to step things up a notch, putting their acid-filled twist on the classic Fatboy Slim track ‘Bird Of Prey’ – flipping it from something relaxed to an upfront driving number.
The evening crescendos with Eats Everything’s reworking of an 80s disco track that should leave you yearning for the clubs to open again. For the very final touch, Pete Heller’s eight-minute masterpiece ‘Big Love’ is a classic ‘one more song’ moment.
