Various (mixed by Eddie Halliwell) - Cream Ibiza
Need something to get you in the mood for summer clubbing antics? Look no further than this two disc mix from Eddie Halliwell, superstar DJ and no relation to Geri.
CD1 is the most varied and includes a number of storming tracks. Although not exactly fresh, Washing Up (Tiga Remix) and Walking Away (Tocadisco Remix) are unmistakable and hugely infectious. No More Conversations (Mylo Remix) is sexy electro with fantastically squelchy bass. Older listeners will recognise classic house tune, It's Alright, here remixed by Chris Straight and a very welcome presence. As the disc progresses, things get harder, faster and less vocal. Fans of the darker side of dance should be satisfied.
CD2 is compiled mainly of fairly standard trance, feeling rather monotonous after a great first disc, but still containing plenty of energy.
At the very least, Cream Ibiza will get your juices flowing in anticipation of the dancefloor. It may even bring on a case of exhaustion.
Eddie Halliwell will be playing Cream @ Amnesia, Ibiza every Thursday night from June 22nd to September 21st, 2006. On August 26th, he will be appearing at Creamfields in Liverpool.
