Various (mixed by David Piccioni) - Space Ibiza 2007
Space, as anybody who's ever worn sunglasses not to dim the light but to hide their freaky eyes will know, is one of Ibiza's big clubs. Mixed by resident DJ, David Piccioni, these two discs supposedly give a flavour of the 2007 season, and feature mainly full on electro house, broken by stretches of minimal techno. There are plenty of monstrous tunes here, amongst them Oxia's Domino and Booka Shade's gorgeously trippy In White Rooms. However, the latter, being sooo 2006, does make me wonder at the vintage of the tracks I'm less familiar with. Doubts that listeners might not be getting a bang up-to-date experience aside, Space Ibiza 2007 is accessible without being cheesy; just the sort of thing to get you geared up for a twenty-four hour session, in fact. You could stick a lot worse on your iPod this summer.
