Various Artists Riton and Serge Santiago: We Love...Ibiza
- Words: Ross Holland
- Label: Ministry of Sound
Unless you’re into foam parties and Tiësto, the very word “Ibiza” probably summons a reaction somewhere between humorous disgust and a superiority complex. Well, this compilation just made things a bit more complicated–We Love…Ibiza is pretty darn good. On Disc One, Serge Santiago digs into percussive nu-disco with remixes by Morgan Geist and Quiet Village, but as the mix progresses, it grows a bit lifeless. Riton’s disc is more successful: His criteria seems to be anything with a dirty, jacked house beat (think Green Velvet’s “Shake and Pop”), and although his inclusion of Bonde Do Role and DFA might recall a Brooklyn warehouse rather than Ibiza’s Club Space, it’s a dance party just the same.
