Wowser, what a stunning double feature we have here in our hands today! To all our ibiza amigos andchicas: Cocoon Recordings presents an unbelievable package just in time for the peak of this yearsIbiza season. Please welcome Sonja Moonear and one of the greatest house and techno producers ofall time, mister Carl Craig! And what a package this is full of love, soul and electronic dance musichighlights.Carl Craig is in charge for CD1 of our official 2016 Ibiza release. The Detroits 90s techno wunderkindand the mastermind behind some of the biggest house and techno records ever made leaves usalmost speechless with his amazing selection and mix. Of course we didnt expect anything less thanthis as Carl is a never ending source of inspiration for us and all house lovers around the globe. Youknow that feeling, somewhere between deepest admiration and jealousy looking at such a big talentwith all these amazing productions and remixes he gave us the god of techno has blessed thislovely and gifted artist and we are extremely proud to have him on our ibiza mix-CD this year! MaestroCraig selected a fine list of tracks for his mix by fellow legends like DJ Pierre (remixed by RicardoVillalobos), Luciano (remixed by Dennis Ferrer), DJ Deep or Agoria. Carl Craig created a perfect mixwith power and deepness at the same time - this is high class techno music. Especially the start of theCD with his exclusive C2 intro edit of Luca Ballerinis Impressions Of A Dawn catches us right fromthe beginning. By including two more remixes by himself the whole selection becomes a perfectlyblended collage of music that appears like an xxl Carl Craig remix. This mix will be for sure one of theall time highlights in our ibiza-cd-series and it was definitely worth the wait! CC hypnotized us with thismix, this one will stay!
Coming up next is lovely Sonja and her mix for CD2 of our package. Miss Moonear included some realhouse lovers delights by artists like Elbee Bad, Ralphie Rosario, Frank Roger and the new US-BerlinerBrett Johnson. What looks and sounds like a deep and housey collection develops pretty soon to afreaky and technoide mix that beams us straight back to our monday nights at cocoon/amnesia. Dontget us wrong, Sonja Moonears mix follows a cool and sexy house direction but it gets us going fromstart to end and she really knows when to power up the pace before bringing us back to the cooldeepness again. This DJ-mix touches us with its electronic soul vibe and Sonja Moonear really handedus a true summer mix in. Everybody misses the sun and heat in the summer of 2016 so wedesperately needed a heart warming music cure to take ibiza with us back home. We especiallyappreciate that Sonja included some of our all time favorites by John Tejada and Ricardo Villalobos(together with Argenis Brito), who receives the honor to close her mix. This is a mix full of pure sexand kicking deepness and we are really proud to have it on our label!
