THE SOUND OF MERCURY RISING COMPILED WITH LOVE BY DJ HARVEY
12" Vinyl UK04.10.17
there is a long-standing love affair between dj harvey and pikes, ibiza. as well as coming back for his third consecutive ‘mercury rising’ residency, the legendary ‘djs’ dj has been appointed ‘cultural attaché’ for pikes, meaning his magic touch and feel-good presence will create even more special moments at pikes this summer, including the launch of new label, pikes records.
in 2015 dj harvey made his hugely anticipated return to ibiza and made pikes his home for his mercury rising debut, a concept inspired by the beauty of the real ibiza, the incredible history of pikes and a genuine love for music. the love, the dancing, the music and the balearic spirit perfectly and poetically encapsulated by dj harvey has seen mercury rising widely recognised as the most special night to embrace the island in over a decade.
the next step in the harvey and pikes story sees him launch pikes records – the first record label founded by pikes owners and ibiza rocks co-founders andy mckay and dawn hindle. on the label, harvey explains: i see so many avenues to work together to release music, everything from live recordings from ibiza rocks and pikes, mix tapes, original productions, showcasing new artists, theres all sorts of avenues to open up. with the finer details still under wraps, its safe to say fans can look forward to the first release being harveys very own mercury rising compilation. but what can we expect from the third instalment of mercury rising? putting it quite simply, just a serious good time really says harvey.
2008 was a huge year for colontonio with massive releases on both discover and vandit and a rising profile on the international dj circuit. 2009 looks set to be even bigger and this massive ep is the perfect start. with an original from tom together with a remix from trance heavyweight giuseppe ottaviani - this ep delivers on every level. ehren stowers has been a regular on the london trance scene for many years and as a dj he has played at pretty much all the major london clubs alongside some of the biggest names in the business. he also has a string of production credits on labels that include perfecto, alter ego and perceptive. it is no surpise then that his latest production has ended up on matt hardwicks label of the moment kill the lights. the first three releases on this label have received universal critical acclaim from across the dance music press and this release looks certain to follow in that vein. if you like your trance to be powerful, uplifting and intelligent, then this release from ehren, and the label in general are definitely for you.
