Various - Superclub Ibiza
With clubbing brands Cream, Pacha and Gatecrasher each getting a dedicated disc, Superclub Ibiza might be considered a (very) Rough Guide to what you’ll hear on the island this summer. Sadly, it’s a somewhat MOR selection, dominated by trance and electro-house. Fans of Fedde Le Grand, Deadmau5, Sidney Samson and Laidback Luke will be in their element, those names appearing more than once on the track listing. Expect also a smattering of old tunes given a re-rub: Kings of Tomorrow’s 'Finally', Depeche Mode’s 'Personal Jesus', Everything But The Girl’s 'Missing'. None of these are exactly bad, just indicative of a rather tired feel. The highlight? Probably T.E.E.D's gleefully hyperactive mangling of Fenech-Soler’s 'Lies'. Otherwise, file under Not That Exciting.
