Hot new tracks for September 2018

A handpicked selection of the very best tunes released in August.

Closing parties are just around the corner and that means the Ibiza clubbing season is nearing its end. Fortunately, plenty of hot new music makes up for it this month.

From Diynamic dancefloor devastators to sizzling Stripped Down Records releases, Ibiza is blessed to be the number one spot in the world for all the very best new tunes to be tried and tested.

Here are 10 of the top new tunes Ibiza Spotlight has been listening out for this month.

Julie McDermott | Don't Go (Gerd Janson Re-Work) | Cr2 Records | 3 August

Gerd Janson uses his slick remix skills to give this 1996 Julie McDermott classic a new lease of life. It's packed with feel-good energy that will have you dancing in the office, at the beach or wherever you hear it - a serious piano banger.

Gerd Janson joins Solomun as part of his Solomun +1 residency at Pacha on 16 September.

Eli & Fur | Night Blooming Jasmine (Rodriguez JR. Remix) | Anjunadeep | 10 August

Eli & Fur are taking the deep house genre by storm. Rodriguez Jr has added his magic touch to this popular melodic production by the London based DJ duo.

Rodriguez Jr. has already played at Amnesia with Do Not Sleep and at the WooMooN closing party at Cova Santa.

Elax | Reaktor (Original Mix) | Diynamic | 10 August

A thumping favourite that's been blasted on the Pacha dancefloor with Solomun many times this season. A real 3:00 in the morning tune, it sends the crowd into a frenzy.

Elax has no dates pencilled in on the island as of yet, but expect to hear this one at Diynamic's DC10 takeover on 14 September.

Terranova & Flashmob | Cosmochord (Pezzner Mix) | Kompakt | 10 August

It's no coincidence this one is signed to German label Kompakt in Cologne. It's an unrelenting techno stomper fit for a hardened audience. Just make sure you don't pull your back out when dancing to it.

Tiga & Zyntherius | Sunglasses At Night (Dense & Pika Remix) | Turbo Recordings | 10 August

Dense & Pika had the Vista Club at Privilege in a trance when they unleashed this remix at the RESISTANCE opening party earlier in the season.

The techno pair has played all across the island this season. You can enjoy their productions at Eric Prydz at Hï Ibiza on 4 September, RESISTANCE closing at Privilege on 11 September and Do Not Sleep's finale at Amnesia on 27 September.

Damian Lazarus & The Ancient Moons | Feedback Loop (Serge Devant Remix) | Crosstown Rebels | 10 August

Damian Lazarus has been expressing his innovative sound with full force all over the world for almost two decades now. He's not slowing down either. Serge Devant has remixed this Lazarus & The Ancient Moons wobbler with great effect.

You may hear this one at Paradise at DC10 on 19 September, where Serge Devant plays.

Harvey McKay | Set Back (Original Mix) | We Are The Brave | 17 August

Alan Fitzpatrick's We Are The Brave label has come a long way in its short time since launching in 2016. The techno label has released productions from big names in the industry, such as Sasha, Darius Syrossian and Skream. Set Back by Harvey McKay fits the We Are The Brave imprint perfectly.

Weiss | Feel My Needs (Purple Disco Machine Extended Mix) | Toolroom | 17 August

Purple Disco Machine gave this euphoric house number a spin at Defected last Sunday where it was met with wide smiles and pumping fists. It can best be described as a future classic and you'll be sure to hear it on dance floors all over the globe for a long time to come.

Purple Disco Machine has two nights coming up on Ibiza this summer. The funky super-club favourite plays at Glitterbox on 21 September and Pure Pacha - Paris By Night on 6 October.

Cristoph | The Duel (Original Mix) | Last Night On Earth | 24 August

Cristoph is announcing himself on Ibiza in fine fashion this season. The UK producer and DJ was handed the role of weekly resident in the Theatre at Hï Ibiza on Tuesdays with Eric Prydz. His heavy hitting bass mixed with dramatic tones in his productions have made him a perfect fit for Ibiza's newest super-club.

Skream & Christian Nielsen | Sleep Walking (Original Mix) | Of Unsound Mind | 24 August

Skream is back with some killer releases. Last month Ibiza Spotlight featured Poison and this month he's teamed up with Danish techno master Christian Nielsen. It's dark, it's heavy, it's a tune - plain and simple.

Skream still has three more dates to come on the island. You can see the former Magnetic Man at RESISTANCE closing on 11 September, Paradise on 19 September and at the ABODE closing on 27 September.

And there you have it: some of the very best new releases from last month. Of course, it was hard to whittle it down to just 10, especially with all the talent coming through on the island this season...

If this isn't enough music for your listening pleasure, you can always head to Ibiza Spotlight's Spotify playlists.
