–D.O.D. feat C de Melero – 1-2-3-4
A record doesn’t always have to be a classic to be good! Such is the case with this track. It is meant to be an after-hours song. In Ibiza and all over the world it never fails to get people off their feet. I got sick of playing this record at one time but somehow, I’ve developed a love for it all over again! Thanks and much love to Cesar de Melero for making such an unmemorable track. It’s a secret weapon…try it!
–HOG presents GROOVELINES – ”YOU GOT TO DANCE”
This is an end of the 90´s BINI & MARTINI Production. It may be really cheesy but it’s another record that I drop from time to time and it always gets a huge reaction. It’s a funky tune with a powerful punch!
–H2O feat BILLIE – ”YOU CAN’T RUN” (Bud You Can’t Hide)
A sure shot classic record of the late 90´s. As much as I say to myself “leave it at home” I always end up bringing it along because there is always people that want to hear it and if I don’t have it they get disappointed!!
–BLACK BOX – ”FANTASY”
It’s a dreamy tune for playing at the end of the night. It talks of love and fantasy and I enjoy sending people home with a positive message. It was a big soul tune in the end of the 80´s.
–MANDY SMITH – ”JUST CAN’T WAIT”
This song needs no introduction!! An essential tune in Ibiza during the 80´s…pure Balearic feeling!
–HYSTERIC EGO – ”WANT LOVE”
I will never forget that day. I was playing in Pacha for Ministry of Sound and DJ BREEZ from Ministry of Sound was the guest DJ of the night. He comes over to me and the first thing he says is that he has a hot new tune from London on acetate. At the time, acetate was a really exclusive thing. When I played it, the crowd went crazy right away. You play this in the middle of a House set and it’s guaranteed to make them go mad.
–MORENAS – ”HAZME SOÑAR”
Morenas was the follow up to the legendary track 100% Balearico SUEÑO LATINO….deep with an electronic and Balearic mix. This could be a peak tune or a warm up one also….but I put it in the after-hours category because it is a great way to calm down after being danced out!
–DON CARLOS – ”ALONE” (JOEY NEGRO EDIT)
This is pure and authentic Balearic sound, with a beautiful feeling. It’s dreamy and it’s got beautiful string sounds and a nice atmosphere that sends out a warm feeling all over the dance floor. I’ve always liked the idea of playing music that is seductive and magically sexy. Joey Negro gave it a refreshing edit.
–JESTOFUNK – ”I’M GONNA LOVE YOU”
This has definitely had a very big influence on me and club culture in Ibiza. You were just smothered in funky feeling!
–GAT DÉCOR – ”PASSION” (FEELING HIGH)
An all-time Ibiza anthem and a classic worldwide…always gets a brilliant response.
–RENE ET GASTON – ”VALLE DE LARMES”
Best track on hyppest 90’s Duch label Fresh Fruit, it’s a dreaming Tune no one deed something better in this way. It’s a unique track! As a strange title bud! The melody of this track is incredible and brings you completely in another dimension, absolutely Classic master peace after 14 year still Rocking all over the world!
I was very honoured when Defected asked me to make a compilation of my favorite Balearic Tracks. We all know that the market nowadays is flooded with many compilations bud this collection as a very special bliss
My Pacha and Ibiza experience between 1984-2006 during the golden age of House Music! has left me with many fond incredible happy musically memories and many amazing glamorous nights and support such god god music, with this selection I present ones of my favourite tracks from the past years and I hope to make you happy for some moments.
All the staff at Defected who supported and helped me a lot to make this project happen. Thank you so much Simon Dunmore giving me the opportunity to express my self. Thank you Ellie, Neil, T. Tambourine, Tony and you….
