DJ’s have started making their way onto the island of Ibiza for the start of the summer season. One of these DJs is Ferry Corsten, and he will be spinning at Sankeys first club in Ibiza, located in Playa d’en Bossa. Sankeys is a well known club based in Manchester, and this year they are expanding to Ibiza in the summer and then NYC later on. Ferry’s residency in Ibiza takes place every Tuesday night, starting on July 12th and ending on September 13th. His Full On Ferry show, revived from 2009, will feature many guest DJs, including Mat Zo, W&W, Kyau & Albert, Marco V, Cosmic Gate, Showtek, Michael Woods, BT, G&D, Aly & Fila, Sied van Riel, Rafael Frost, Lange, and Giuseppe Ottaviani. The list goes on and on, so you know it will be a special summer at Sankeys filled with many memorable back 2 back sets.

To celebrate the start of his residency, Ferry has released this compilation album. Here is a collection of assorted summer tunes, some of which you may already have heard. CD1 is okay, but I couldn’t really get into it until I heard Nitrogen by Deas & Lubica. The last two tracks in CD1 are good (especially the new Super8 & Tab), but the rest of the mix is a bit uninspiring. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m pretty sick of Yuri Kane’s Right Back. It was a bit annoying to hear Ferry play it again, especially after he included it in 2 out of 3 Once Upon A Night albums. Fortunately disc 2 is significantly better, and it contains many more interesting tracks. Save the Robot strikes again with their latest hit Compassion, and new songs by Michael Jay Parker and Virtual Vault keep the mix going strong. The flow is much smoother in the second disc, it almost sounded like Ferry was trying to force things too much in the first one. Modern remakes of Out of the Blue and Pocket Damage close out the album with style. While this album is a nice little preview of things to come, I can’t wait to hear some of those upcoming live sets. If you can make it out to Ibiza this summer, Tuesday nights at Sankeys are sure to be a fun time.
