We caught up with 3 x Winner of Pete Tong’s prestigious “Essential New Tune” award on BBC Radio 1 Essential Selection - Ridney, to find out his top five Ibizan classics ahead of his forthcoming Cafe Mambo opening party show at McQueen, London this weekend (Friday 7th August.)
1. Sandino & Frankey - Acamar [Innervisions] <<CLICK TITLE
A simply beautiful record full of balearic magic. Works either during the day or at night.
2. Flush - Come Back Baby [Strictly Rhythm] <<CLICK TITLE
Pool party vibes courtesy of Flush, reminiscent of Bangalter & Falcon Roulé releases.
3. Mark Knight - Second Storey [Suara] <<CLICK TITLE
The classic “The Player” from First Choice, a fave of mine when Daft Punk used to drop it in their DJ sets gets the 2015 treatment from Mark Knight.
From the first time I played this in Ibiza back in April this one has everybody giving you the respect nod of throwing their mobile under your nose asking “WTF IS THIS?!?”. Arguably this years biggest club record.
5. Detroit Swindle - Figure Of Speech [Freerange] <<CLICK TITLE
Brand new from DS and rocking all my DJ sets, perfect pool party vibes for the summer.
Don’t forget, tickets for the Cafe Mambo opening party at Mcqueen, Shoreditch are available right here on Ticket Tannoy…
