The album opens with the sublime Sunset At San Antoni with its deep grooving techno vibe weaving its way through your body making you move to the rhythm. A warming pad mesmerizes as the beats dissipate leaving us with a stunning soundtrack to the setting sun.
The title track - Ibiza Legacy is up next and personifies the tech house sound of club life on the Island. We are met with a super tight drum arrangement that flows effortlessly delivering a cool rhythm while swirling pads fill the background as a grooving bassline keep us moving on the floor. Fantastic stuff that is not to be missed.
Sand On The Heart dishes out a full on slice of tough edged techno beats as a melodic pad swirls over head. We see Van's attention to drums prevail here, his drums are powerful and really set the track alight with their driving energy. From here we are led into the tech house realm of A Minuit Je Ne Sais Plus Ou Je suis which carries a bit of a bouncy groove with that playful bassline that dances across the sound. Cool drums get the rhythm flowing as chord stabs fade through delivering the house elements in style. Van's tribal roots can be picked out here and once again we see a fine slice with the drums at the forefront.
Bises Marines intros with a beautifully warm synth coupled with a fading melodic arp and cool voices. As we are mesmerized by the beautiful, swirling pads a fresh drum section emerges complete with chunky kicks, crispy hats and sharp claps. Just the tonic for a late night session on the terrace. Going even later into the night we have Desalmada that delivers a solid, powerful slice of techno that hypnotizes with its darker tones and a brilliant vocal. This one will dominate floors for sure, a must have track.
Next up we have Ebulus that carries a hint of retro in its sound with those ultra cool synths that remain throughout. A tight drum arrangement keeps the rhythm flowing as a throbbing bassline works the low end with ease creating a track that will definitely become a go to for many.
Fragans Feminae is a rip roaring trek through tech house with a full on tribal drum arrangement taking centre stage. Chunky kick drums are joined by shuffling hats and intricate drum patterns that form a super tight construction for the floors. On the low end a subtle bass lends a hand as the drums intensify leading up to a wall of sound
