It isn't often that we get the opportunity to release our very own album. Especially not one with such island legends as Alfredo and his son Jamie - performing as The Heritage Project - purveyors of the genre-less Balearic sound. However, we have indeed managed to arrange a collaboration with the island’s most legendary DJ, Alfredo, who collaborates with his son Jaime Fiorito on a regular basis, for a unique aural experience. Together they have created an authentic Ibicenco vibe provided by the people serving up dance music in Ibiza since before the island became the world’s clubbing destination.
After 23 years of publishing printed island guides highlighting the very best that the island has to offer, we launched online in 1999 and we've since built an almost iconic reputation as a source of information and services for Ibiza. The guide aspect remains a central tenet of Spotlight and has allowed us to grow into Ibiza's biggest independent accommodation booker and also one of the leading ticket sellers for Ibiza's club events. Over time other services including car hire, airport transfers, Ibiza Villas bookings and further movements into the musical side of Ibiza, including a podcast, have been developed. Into 2012, the timing is perfect for us to deliver our first compilation album.
Alfredo & Jaime deliver a sublime eclectic selection of classic and future Ibiza records from the likes of Arnold Jarvis, Osunlade, The Backwoods, Jazzanova, Kraak & Smaak and Tuccillo amongst some incredible underground cuts to bring the true Ibiza spirit to life.
Much of this music formed the soundtrack of a very fine evening last Friday as we held our launch party at the Boutique Hostal Las Salinas, with The Heritage Project playing of course! Champagne and tapas flowed throughout ensuring our first, of hopefully many, albums was presented in the best way possible.
