Sometimes you have to be in the right setting to thoroughly absorb the music you’re listening too. Be that comfortably in bed, lying on the sofa, or even while travelling. Listening to Poolside Ibiza 2019, a twenty-six track compilation generates such a strong urge to be in a nightclub or a beach bar that it makes my home with comfortable furnishing feel somehow unnatural.
As stated in the title and on the covers’ design, this selection of tracks are created and mixed for sunshine settings, good vibes and fun times.
Compiled by Toolroom, the twenty-six tracks, original and extended mixes, mean you’re into the late night/early hours party zone with a soulful, funky and dance beat selection.
Swedish producer Opolopo has an impressive career, renowned for breathing energy, life and dance-floor groove to tracks, and he mixes the full album into one seamless, hypnotic train of head-nodding, floor-shuffling beats – ‘Poolside Ibiza 2019‘. The bars in Ibiza really should thank him as party-going customers will be drawn by the atmosphere and vibe.
Opolopo’s own seriously funky track – Sickla Side Push Shuffle, Rhemi – Shake Your Body Down (Original Mix), and Soulphiction – Bizzness (Original Mix) are just some of the seriously addictive grooves in the compilation. The roller-skate ready Make No Mistake (…To The Disco) by Southside Connection will tempt you to glide across the floor. You could bottle this album and label it with the warning – ‘contains intoxicating goodness’.
Opolopo has provided all you need to get the party started…except the beach.
Well, you can’t have everything!
