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.
