Following the success of the debut release of 'Caliente' by Ibizarre Records very own Eva Pacifico - entering directly at Nr. 5 of the Beatport chillout charts - we are proud to follow up with the second installment of remixes: 4 well established artists have taken up the challenge and delivered this 2nd bake of riveting remixes, reinterpreting the Balearic vision that 'Caliente' has. The variety of their individual approaches has broadened the already wide spectrum of styles that have shaped the impact of the first release.
Introducing the remixers:
The EP opens with the remix by none other than Balearic master Dj Pippi (Valenostrum Ibiza label) who established himself as a pioneer and legend of one of the first Ibiza residents at the most glamorous club in the world Pacha Ibiza. Not only did he manage to claim a prominent spot in the early global scene of house music and but he is also one of the creators of that distinct Ibiza sound that is loved and respected worldwide. So it is with great pride that we can present the free spirited interpretation by Dj Pippi, steaming with Balearic influence in the style of a true Ibiza summer anthem.
In 1989, Ibiza based producer/composer Illinton had his first big break on the international Dance music scene. A multi instrumentalist from early age, Illinton's experience in Chillout, Electronica, House and Techno is as diverse as it is impressive. His superhuman flair with the piano and sound have landed him with names like: Angie Brown, Queen Latifah, Karsh Kale, Ricardo Da Force (KLF), Peshay, Frank E (Kox Box), Decoder (Kosheen DJs) and David Lynch. His remix of Caliente has a haunting ethnic flare laying on progressive beats.

King of Copenhagen Nightlife, Dj & Producer, Jean von Baden and Norwegian composer, Dj and producer, Mads Nordheim aka Mashti delivers another exciting take on the mix. Jean's exceptional ears and understanding of the audience combined with Mads aka Mashti's refined understanding of the musical genres and the instrumental curiosities give them a wide leeway to play with sounds and effects that will move anyone, whether they listen to deep dark melancholic tracks or more dub-chillled tracks. They are an eclectic duo playing all genres from house to Balearic. They have been djing for decades all over the world from Ibiza to Beijing and with lots of respected acts from Grace Jones to Mathew Johnson. Mads aka Mashti has released on several compilations such as Budda Bar, Kumharas, etc. They express their vision of Caliente with soft & warm Brazilian vibes.
