The summer season’s most luxurious new arrivals only from Bargrooves…
Bargrooves moves to the sunshine for a summer of music and fashion and this Bargrooves Summer Sessions Deluxe Edition delivers the ultimate fashionista’s guide to deluxe summer clubbing; whether by the beach, at sunset or back inside at a favourite holiday island nightspot. The concept is simple; Bargrooves tastemaker Andy Daniell serves up his latest cocktail of classier summer sounds ranging from peaktime Ibiza 2011 anthems to and soulful grooves you could expect to hear in one of the finer sunset destinations around the globe.
The decadence of summer is certainly upon us with the inclusion of three CDs (and the digital equivalent) of music for three dazzling Bargrooves locations; the Deluxe Club, the Deluxe Beach or Deluxe Sunset. With each track hinting instant glamour it is certainly true that luxurious, melodic, vocal-driven house music is most definitely back this summer and it’s all available on Bargrooves’ latest collection.
Deluxe Club forms the ultimate peaktime set with a variety of new music including hotly tipped tracks from Bob Sinclar and Ray Foxx. Both are curve balls to the straight up big room house sound and therefore perfect for summer dancefloors! The song Far L’Amore is sung in Italian with infectious Latin house influences throughout. It also stands out with its incredible new video starring Bob’s friends, Italian fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana and is developing as a huge record this year. Ray Foxx’s has really launched his whole career with The Trumpeter, with heavy radio support from Pete Tong, Annie Mac and Zane Lowe in the UK, it’s another track that’s “shaping up to be THE sound of the Balearics” according to BBC Radio 1. Further into the selection pumping tribal beats come from new Dutch duo Roul & Doors with their latest Gita and the side ends with James Talk & Ridney’s epic One For Me featuring erstwhile Axwell vocalist Max C.
Deluxe Beach is certainly a more disco-becoming-deeper affair. Starting with an 80s-inspired disco funk groove from Storm Queen with Look Right Through, Human Life’s In It Together is instantly loveable for its synth stabs and huge vocal then the disco filters of Trescem’s Turn On The Music has a certain Stardust-esque chic before Chocolate Puma’s party anthem favourite, For Your Love, returns with a new version fresh for this year. Later, one of the brand new Kings Of Tomorrow Finally mixes gets an outing before we head into deeper territory with Olene Kadar’s Baby Keep It Up, where Ian Pooley is on the remix before Jimpster’s re-touch of Youandewan’s 1988 captures a perfect beach clubbing moment.
With Deluxe Sunset, the vibe slows down and becomes just a little more emotional as you might expect. Here we have some more sensual and soulful Balearic moments and more sunset deepness from Kaine with a reprise of Love Saves The Day from Jacques Renault which is also a full single release forthcoming on Bargrooves, Osunlade features with a new track called No Way from his exquisite new artist album, Pyrography and Duff Disco (a new act to the Tenth Circle label) immerse us with deep dubby bass and beautiful pads on I Remember. Finally, Luca Bacchetti and Guti’s Esa Nena Quiere and Afefe Iku’s Mirror Dance (Yoruba Soul Remix feat. Oveous Maximus) take us to another place spiritually as the sun disappears over the horizon to mark the end of the day and beginning of the night.
All-in-all here’s an unforgettable summer of luxurious house music in one release, the CD version is unmixed for DJ-friendly pleasure whilst the digital version includes luxurious bonus mixes from the Bargrooves selector himself.
