As summer hits full swing, it makes perfect sense for the accomplished AVOTRE label to offer up some sizzling Ibiza anthems. As such, label boss Santé teams up with musical sparring partner Sidney to present From the Terrace to the Warehouse: Ibiza Heat, a compilation that pulls together seven new tracks of sun kissed dynamite that will soundtrack your every move this summer.
The compilation pulls together a clutch of new producer talents that haven’t released on the label before, but each one fits in perfectly with the no nonsense MO of the label to date.
Along the way, the likes of classic house producer Montel offers ‘Body Music,’ which is a physical hose cut with thudding kicks and groove laden percussion. Mennie keeps it deep and old school flavoured with the slow jack of ‘Organica’ and Locklead offers up a whacked out, sketchy and playful track that is all lo fi and grainy, bumpy and raw.
Kuo Climax’s ‘Breakdown’ is a high pressure, high impact track with alien synths, sic fi sounds and massive, barreling drums that thud with a real sense of presence. Prado pulls a similar trick with the bombastic grind of ‘Back2Back Last Break’ and its flappy snares, rapped vocals and whirring machine sounds, and last but not least Ale Castro’s ‘Schubkraft’ keeps things decidedly deep and retro with hubby basslines, airy hi hats and big splashes of cymbal all riding next to a wub-wub bassline that will sends hands in the air.
This is a brilliantly varied compilation of cuts that both DJs and dancers are sure to love this summer. As ever, AVOTRE has pulled together the finest talents of the day and got the very best out of them.
‘Ibiza Heat’ will be available via Avotre from 21.08.2015.
