Playa del Carmen, Mexico may not be our most obvious hub for deep house. Saying that, once a year it is.Home to Central America´s only (decent) international dance music festival, BPM, it´s welcomed the creme of the crop of the house & techno circuit to its white beaches for 10 days each January since 2007. Coincidently (or not), Akbal Music, run by Mexicos´s Robbie Akbal, has been, also since 2006, up -and-running as a high-end deep house label,realising the likes of The Midnight Perverts, Afrilounge, and Hector since its inception, proving that ¨Playa¨ now has a scene it can proudly call its own. This five-year commemorative mix by Robbie Akbal & Muan, presenting cuts from Jonny White, Death On The Balcony and Wildkats, glides as a tightly-knitted collection of melodic house gems.
Nocturnal, sun-kissed and downright funky, it´s the perfect soundtrack to a beach party in paradise
