Let’s begin the week with another Ibiza themed compilation album, this time with some house and trance on the program. Last week I shared Carl Cox’ collection of Space tunes, and here we get music from two DJs who play different styles of dance music. The legendary club Space needs no introduction, so let’s dive right into the music. Fedde le Grand has been on the house circuit for the past 10 years, and he is no stranger to summer anthems. His latest progressive productions Autosave and Running can be found on disc 1, as well as the edgier Metrum and Control Room. My favorite is Control Room, which has one of the best basslines of this summer. These tracks are surrounded by the latest in house tunes, many of which are released on Armada. This should not be surprising since the album is published by Armada Music. Disc 2 features mixing by Markus Schulz, and he features primarily artists from his Coldharbour label. New stuff by KhoMha, Klauss Goulart, Mike Foyle, and Rex Mundi highlight the tracklist. Overall this is a decent purchase, although I have considerably more fun listening to either of Fedde or Markus’ radio shows. Both mixes are pretty good for parties, but they don’t have much buildup or drive that you expect from both of these great DJs, especially Markus Schulz. This album is a great marketing tool for Armada, but I would be hard pressed to say this is a complete package.
