END OF SUMMER SPECIAL
Ibiza Rocks - Reclaim The Dancefloor *****
FOR the past few years, Ibiza Rocks has established itself as a mecca for live music on the party island. 2010 was no different, with Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro and singer Florence And The Machine performing during the season. 2010 also saw the Ibiza Rocks team start a new weekly club night at Eden featuring internationally renowned DJs. To celebrate they have released a CD mixed by their resident DJ, Doorly. The double-disc release will at first appeal to fans of dubstep, garage, techno, electro and drum 'n' bass. The second CD is a live music affair. A strong compilation which will appeal to those who prefer their dance music a little less disco.
Chilled R&B - Summer Classics ****
TO serve as a reminder of summer's relaxed early evening barbecues, this album will be popular with those in need of unwinding. Opening with Alicia Keys' wonderful Empire State Of Mind (Part II) Broken Down, this is a stress-free, three-disc compilation which mixes soul classics such as Bill Withers' Ain't No Sunshine and The Jacksons' I'll Be There with popular modern day tunes such as Lemar's It's Not That Easy, Usher's Burn, and My Love by Justin Timberlake. There's plenty of 90s R&B on show. A solid collection of tunes which will still be popular next summer.
Ultimate 80s Movie Hits ****
FOR those who have spent their summer at numerous hen and stag parties and subsequently found themselves dancing to cheesy tunes at weddings, this album will act as a tasty reminder. From Kenny Loggins' Footloose to Dolly Parton's 9 To 5, this 40-track album runs through the most memorable 80s movie songs. Film fanatics will know the words to every song including Limahl's Never Ending Story and Patrick Swayze's She's Like The Wind. This collection may not impress the music snobs but it's one of the most entertaining albums on the market this summer.
Now That's What I Call Music 76 ****
SUMMER wouldn't be summer without Now releasing another album of pop hits. Having reached the heady heights of number 76, this album features plenty of the pop tunes which have made the season memorable; The Club Is Alive by JLS, Alejandro by Lady Gaga and Solo by Iyaz. As always, the Now release will suit teenagers.
