Various - Pacha Ibiza Classics
It may be peeing down outside, but you know for sure it's summer by the sheer number of dance compilations / mixes vying for your attention. Pacha Ibiza Classics does pretty much what you'd expect, ripping through the last 20 years of dance music and hitting on almost as many cheesy (if not necessarily unenjoyable) tunes as it does genuine classics. And so we go from the gorgeous MDMA-styled fluffiness of The Beloved's 'The Sun Rising' (~ 1990) to Dennis Ferrer's 'Hey Hey' (~ 2010) - which, having just returned from Ibiza, I'm pretty sure I never want to hear again. The problem isn't the variation in quality, more over-familiarity and the lack of imagination in putting it together. Pacha Ibiza Classics often feels like only two cherries away from Now Dance Classics.
