Various (mixed by Riley & Durrant) - The Electrik Playground Ibiza

How many times a year is Ibiza's name milked to shift units of a shoddy dance mix? Arriving late in the season, Riley & Durrant's The Electrik Playground Ibiza is in fact rather good, nicely blending house, minimal and trance. Highlights include: the uplifting opening salvo of Uncle Fly and EP1 (Adam Sheridan mix), the Booka Shade-aping I.D.E (Tiger Stripes mix), the Latin house-styled City Of God and Laidback Luke's mix of Underworld's Ring Road. Only really Miracle Cure, featuring Bernard Sumner obviously doing it for the money, sticks out as lacklustre.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
