Its getting towards Christmas, Ibiza 2010 is a distant memory, but now we have another CD to remind us of the sun.. sea.. and amazing nights out!

The CD is made up from Cream, Gatecrasher and Pacha, three of the biggest names in clubbing, two of which have been cornerstones in Ibiza for a very long time. More …

Cream Ibiza 2010 – Mixed By Eddie Halliwell

Posted by Gary on Thursday 8 July 2010

I have recently heard the new Cream Ibiza album mixed by Eddie Halliwell. I find it hard to review a CD like this, mainly because i have so many pre conceptions about it all.

Firstly, Cream –  As a club it makes me think of Paul Oakenfold, Bugged Out, Tiesto, PVD, Ferry Corsten etc, it makes me think of Creamfields, It doesn’t make me think of the new guard that play at nation such as, Eddie Halliwell, Eric Prydz, Adam Sheridan.

Secondly, Cream Albums – Again, Cream albums make me think about Oakenfolds Residency, The old Ibiza Arrivals CD, Im not over keen on all the classics albums that get churned out, mainly because i don’t need an album of classics because i remember them the first time round!

Thirdly, Eddie Halliwell – I think your going to get the picture here, I used to whore myself to go and see Eddie Halliwell, GoodGreef starting a night in Tall Trees many moons ago created a monthly Mecca and Eddie Halliwell was at the helm! Fast forward and he’s ace in smaller doses!

If your still reading and not slagged me off and clicked away for living in the past, you can probably tell i live in the past, at least when it comes to Cream anyway. I visit Cream Ibiza and i am a self-proclaimed veteran of Creamfields, anything else and it generally doesn’t bother me any more.

The other night however, i had just received a copy of Cream Ibiza 2010 mixed by Eddie Halliwell and i thought i would give it a whirl. CD one starts of extremely trancy, and has a really long intro which works really well.

The second CD came on a different time after we had a BBQ, had a few mates round and i thought i would slip it on to gauge reaction, the reaction was good, nobody questioned what was on, and trust me the people i was with would question something they didn’t like the sound off!

Both CD’s create a mix between the freshest names and the old school with new releases, its got the tracks that are being played now and not what was played last year. Cream have pulled one out of the bag here but maybe i shouldn’t be surprised, after all it is representing Cream Ibiza and this is a night that has never died away for me. With this CD, they have pulled in the fans of Cream, Eddie and hopefully everyone else that listens to it regardless of pre conceptions.

The Underground : Ibiza 2010

Posted by Gary on Wednesday 23 June 2010

I love this time of year, not only because the weather is nice but also because of the albums that are released. Ibiza is a big money spinner for people who release albums, stick Ibiza in the title and you will sell more copies. Its also the time of year that the clubs and bars in Ibiza release their stuff, over the years their have been some amazing releases. One album that springs to mind particularly is The Space Ibiza cd from 2001 (i think!!)

This month sees a release from Ministry Of Sound, The Underground Ibiza is an unmixed album which makes it Dj friendly, im not a Dj so i personally would prefer it mixed. More …
