DEFECTED presents The Opening Party Ibiza 2016

Alexandre Trochut

The Ibiza opening parties represent a clubbing ritual – a time of celebration when clubbers, promoters, DJs, producers and labels alike come together to kick-start a new season of non-stop music and parties. Continuing to be at the forefront of Ibiza’s thriving dance music scene, Defected presents The Opening Party Ibiza 2016 is an eclectic collection of those tracks set to be the standout records of the summer on the White Isle this year – from the soon-to-be club anthems to in-demand underground gems.

 Whether you’re making one last pilgrimage to the Space Terrace during for the legendary club’s 27th anniversary and final season or getting down to the myriad sounds of house music in Amnesia, Pacha or Sankeys, these are the records you can expect to hear thumping out of the speakers, providing a true reflection of that special Opening Party feeling in Ibiza.

Highlights on the album include what’s already shaping up to be the biggest record of the summer – the Lee Walker re-rub of “Freak Like Me, with Bicep’s euphoric remix of “Higher Level” by Isaac Tichaeur, Disclosure’s futuristic rework of Flume’s Never Be Like You and Floorplan’s disco-house smash Tell You No Lie” all set to do further damage.

Alongside upfront Defected Records from the likes of Purple Disco Machine, Sonny Fodera, Crookers and Alaia & Gallo, Defected presents The Opening Party Ibiza 2016 features 30 unmixed tracks and two perfectly crafted mixes, making this the must-have release & provides all the ammunition you’ll need to be prepared for the season’s opening weeks.
