Spotify playlist | ANTS man Francisco Allendes' top picks

After collecting his Ibiza DJ award, the resident looks ahead to the party's closing at Ushuaïa.

Francisco Allendes has been a busy man on Ibiza this summer. While he continued to put the hours in as a resident for ANTS at Ushuaïa, he also a bunch of appearances across the road at Hï Ibiza for BODYWORKS.

The outcome? His energetic, Afro-Latin sound has seen him soar ahead of his peers, with earnest conviction. His efforts were recognised earlier this week at the DJ Awards, with the Chilean awarded the honourable title of 2019 Ibiza DJ.

Not only can Francisco be found spinning at the beach club hotel on Saturday daytimes, but he also holds the prestigious title of presenting the weekly ANTS radio show on Ibiza Sonica.

The tech house maestro is set to unite the colony one last time for the closing party on 28 September. He's billed alongside fellow ANTS faves Andrea Oliva, Dublin, Joris Voorn, Solardo and Steve Lawler.

To give us a taste of what's to come, Francisco has compiled a dedicated Spotify playlist for Ibiza Spotlight. A generous mix of new beats, reworks of old classics and some groove-laden gems to sink your teeth stuck into.


Francisco Allendes | Kontakt | Rawthentic

"I found an old hard drive with many projects I did from when I was still living in Chile and I found the vocal I used on this track. It is an ethno chant in the style of my tracks from around 2009-10 that sounded too good to waste.

I created a whole track around it, trying to blend my old style and new style together. I'm very happy about with the result."


Eddy M | All I Need | MÜ​SE

"I fell in love at first sight with this track. It's just perfect! The groove, the melody, the vocal - everything! I'm sure you will love it too."


Joe Smooth | Promised Land (Gerd Janson Remix) | Armada Electronic Elements

"I'm a big fan of the original (who isn't?) so when I saw this one in my inbox, I jumped right away to listen it. Gerd Janson's work here is amazing. He refreshes the track to give it ten more years of play."


Andrew Meller | Landing (Danny Serrano Remix) | Serrano's Kitchen

"I discovered Andrew Meller last year and I think he is one of the coolest producers right now. Every track he delivers is top quality.

This one in particular is one of my favourites, with Danny Serrano giving it a hypnotic twist whilst also being quite respectful to the original groove. I play it every set."


The Deepshakerz | Caipirinha | Kittball

"A good Latin groove with samba-ish vocals. It never fails."


Matthias Tanzmann and Daniel Stefanik | Induction | Moon Harbour

"This one has one of the craziest drops I've heard in the last few months. Chopped vocals, modulating synths, lfo drones, result in an absolute banger that helps me set the dance floor on fire every time."
