5 tracks bubbling under the surface

Feast your soundbuds on these fire tracks from Ibiza's dancefloors.

After Eliza Rose and Interplanetary Criminal's B.O.T.A (Baddest Of Them All) rose to UK number one last week, it's safe to say that its impact on Ibiza's dancefloors has been extraordinary.

Although the journey of a track can differ, in most instances, they break in the club before infiltrating the wider public's consciousness. In that respect, B.O.T.A bucked the traditional route, going from festival anthem to chart invader, before finally being adopted in clubland.

All the big tunes that we know and love start somewhere and we may just have the next big track right here under our sleeves

We're bringing you some hot to touch tracks that haven't quite hit the bit time yet, but are definitely simmering under the surface.

Becoming more popular with each passing week and with the backing of some of the island's biggest DJs, these tracks make a late surge for Ibiza's defining 2022 anthem.

Butch | Same Like Dope But Different | Saved Records

Any House head worth their salt should be familiar with Butch's 2010 belter Dope. To this day, it still gets its fair share of plays in the clubs (at his Solomun +1 appearance, of course, but most recently clocked at Glitterbox).

Never one to rest on his laurels, he's only gone and produced another one for 2022.

Same Like Dope But Different is the track in question and we guess, an official follow-up of sorts. Jamie Roy gave me the heads up about this track at Amnesia and seeing as though I love the original so much, I went straight onto Soundcloud to give it a listen.

While there's for sure a few similarities, the name was probably more click bait than an update of his original. In which case, job done! This one is also a banger in the making.

Likely to be played at: ANTS, El Baile 

Mau P | Drugs From Amsterdam | Repopulate Mars

Maurice West, to be known forever onwards as Mau P, is in fact from Amsterdam. His break-out track is inspired by one of the many saved voice notes on his phone. Simple arrangement but feverishly catchy, like many dance records that cross over.

Mau P recently made a TikTok on how he made Drugs From Amsterdam. Popular amongst both EDM and underground DJs, I've heard this a few times over the summer on the island. Now it's hit number one on Beatport, you can expect to be hearing it everywhere.

Likely to be played at: Repopulate Mars, Future Rave

TSHA | Dancing In The Shadows | Ninja Tune

From IMS Grand Finale to numerous sets at DC10 this summer, TSHA has announced her arrival on Ibiza and the wider global stage. With her energetic performances and her ability to produce an array of different tracks, her potential seems limitless and we're all here for it.

After releasing multiple singles and EPs this year already, and with a debut artist album dropping any moment, TSHA's latest track underlines her versatility.

Jessie Ware | Free Yourself (Eats Everything Remix) | EMI

Your man Eats Everything is back with a new remix, this time putting his own interpretation on female vocalist Jessie Ware's track Free Yourself. Eats has added his own touch, stamping his personal brand of big room fun all over the catchy vocal.

For those who prefer it a bit more techy, Paul Woolford has also provided a killer remix.

Likely to be played at: Amnesia Presents, Glitterbox

Kevin de Vries | Dance With Me | Afterlife

Sometimes it seems like we can't go a year without certain tracks being rehashed. Show Me Love by Robin S and Freak Like Me by Adina Howard being two classic examples of tracks that get recycled on the regular.

The Age Of Love is another contender, having most recently be resurrected by Charlotte de Witte and Enrico Sangiuliano for their 2021 version which went gold. The familiar refrain has been used again, but this time its Kevin de Vries who breaths fresh life into it - and we approve.

"Stop... bring the beat back" - that drop is devastating.

Likely to be played at: Afterlife, CAMELPHAT
