Defected regular Franky Rizardo shares his top Ibiza tracks of the season

The young Dutchman and Defected regular gives us the tracks he believes sum up the Ibiza season.

Franky Rizardo has had a spectacular season on Ibiza this year, bumping those banging house tunes over at Eden for Defected In The House.

Along with consistently playing at the popular Sunday night party, the Dutch DJ has had a fantastic musical year releasing a slew of new originals and remixes. Rizardo just released his new Take Off EP which features three new tracks to smash the club. He also played a coveted BBC Essential Mix earlier this month on 2 September.

As a regular at Defected In The House, Rizardo knows how to get the people moving. With Defected being one of the more successful nights on the island, we reached out to the young Dutchman for his top Ibiza tracks of the season. Some are groovy, some are bouncy, but the common theme is that they all go off in the club.

Check them out for yourself and if you like what you hear then make sure to head over to Eden for the last two Defected parties of the season. Franky will be at the decks for the closing on 1 October. Full details and tickets below.

Marian Hill – Down (Franky Rizardo Remix)

This has been one of my best received productions ever. Every time I play it the reaction is the same – Madness!

Camelphat – Cola (Franky Rizardo Remix)

This was a tough remix, as this is such a big track this summer. I wanted to tease people with it and it seems to be working when I play it out.

Franky Rizardo – Feel Alright

Solardo signed this within one hour of sending to them; then they played this at every set – and I had some great support from Steve Lawler and Detlef, too.

Rationale – Loving Life (Franky Rizardo Remix)

The original is by a very cool electronic act in the UK and I loved the song so had to remix it. I'm very happy with how this one came out.

San Holo – The Future (Franky Rizardo Remix)

Another remix of mine from this summer. San Holo is a cool act from Holland, who releases very different music to me, so it was great to put my twist on this. It's such a cool vocal.

Franky Rizardo – Buzz

Another one of my own tracks out now on Yousef's Circus imprint.

Leftwing & Kody – Sound Boy

Love the groove on this – been a winner for me everywhere.

A Sagittariun – Vanishing Point

Something a bit deeper and darker. I love to close out a set with this one.

Drastic Duo – Easy Beat (De La Swing Remix)

Loving everything De La Swing is doing at the moment. This remix is wicked.

Max Chapman – La Fiesta

Killer latino tech from Max on Hot Creations. It works everywhere.

Malandra Jr. – Dance Warriors (Riva Starr Remix)

Riva is always on point – Love this.
