VOL 1.

10. Patrick Topping ‘Forget’ Hot Creations new boy Patrick Topping is fast establishing himself as the next big talent to come from the Jamie Jones-helmed imprint. His latex ‘Forget’ is a thick-house roller that uses an array of sidewinding synths throughout. Killer.

9. GusGus ‘Crossfade’ (Maceo Plex Remix) If anyone knows Ibiza out of this list then it’s Maceo Plex. The Ellum main-man has been gracing the island for years and his outrageously epic and abrasive remix of ‘Crossfade’ has been doing the business both in Ibiza and around the world.

8. Vario Volinski ‘Falling In Love’ Number seven on the list comes from Vario Volinski and his uplifting and sickly sweet track on the cat-loving Suara label has got everyone dancing. If you like vocal-led piano cuts then download this now.

7. Josh Butler ‘Got A Feeling’ (Bontan Remix, Pleasurekraft Edit) Not one but two acts have jumped on editing duty for Josh Butler’s ‘Got A Feeling’. Even though this one is over a year old it’s still causing havoc over on the party island with chubby basslines and big vocals taking the lead from the off.

6. Emeli Sandé ‘Read All About It’ (Stefan Biniak Bootleg) The UK treasure Emeli Sandé has been given a Balearic makeover courtesy of Stefan Biniak and the results are a slowed-down and washed-out edit that feature the original’s big piano chords and some distorted vocal-work.

5. Agoria ‘Scala’ This was without doubt one of the biggest tracks of last year and Agoria’s ‘Scala’ shows no sign of slowing down. Released via the unstoppable Innvervisions imprint, this one is about as epic and grand as you can get.

4. Tapesh & Dayne S ‘How I Do’ Oh Tapesh and Dayne S, you naughty men. These two have turned in a rolling and groove-infused track that masterfully samples Marvin Gaye’s ‘I Heard It Through The Grapevine’. An Ibiza hit for sure.

3. Wankelmut & Emma Louise ‘My Head Is A Jungle’ (MK Remix) If there’s one thing that’s been confirmed over the last couple of year it’s that MK is firmly back in the game and he’s fucking smashing it. His edit of Wankelmut & Emma Louise puts his trademark piano stabs to very, very good use.

2. Oliver $ & Jimi Jules ‘Pushing On’ This could well be the most infectious vocal of the year and ‘Pushing On’ will, without doubt, be hammered all year long. It’s in that nice in-between of house banger and disco-stomper and we’re confident this is going to become a summer sing-a-long.

1. Ten Walls ‘Walking with Elephants’ Ever since Mario Basanov fired up his Ten Walls alias last year, every track he’s made has been auditory gold. Following on from the huge success of ‘Gotham’ and ‘Mongol’, Basanov’s first release via his new BOSO label has been smashed far and wide. We expect this one to do the damage all summer long on the White Isle.

VOL 2.

10. Tom Odell ‘Another Love’ (Zwette Edit) Pianos, Tom Odell’s soothing vocals and a rolling house beat that just keeps giving. This one is as delicate as you can get, and perfect for the Balearic sunsets and sunrises.

9. Josh Butler ‘Got A Feeling’ (Bontan Remix, Pleasurekraft Edit) This one came in at number seven last month and it seems that the Ibiza clubbers are still feeling this edit of Josh Butler by Bontan and Pleasurekraft. It’s a chubby one.

8. Anna Naklab & Parra for Cuva ‘Wicked Games’ (Original Mix) Another new entry here as Anna Naklab & Parra for Cuva crack out the strings and bouncing basslines for this one. It’s got a classic sing-a-long vocal so no doubt some drunken renditions will take place at a sound system near you.

7. Teenage Mutants & Purple Disco Machine – The Path (Original Mix) Ooh this one has flutes and horns and it comes from the cat lovers over at Suara. ‘The Path’ has some strong builds and fist-pump inducing drops, very nice.

6. Sailor & I ‘Turn Around’ (Âme Remix) It’s safe to say that this is one of the tracks of the year already. Dixon and the Innervisions crew have been pumping out Âme’s remix of ‘Turn Around’ for a while now, so much so that we had to premiere it via our SoundCloud. Exceptional from start to finish.

5. Tapesh & Dayne S ‘How I Do’ This cut made an appearance last month and no wonder, the Marvin Gaye sampling ‘How I Do’ is a certified rocket. Talk about a thick-house roller, this one will be getting played all summer we reckon.

4. Emeli Sandé ‘Read All About It’ (Stefan Biniak Bootleg) Another returning favourite, Emeli Sandé’s piano-laden track gets a bouncy beat and some nice drum-work, ensuring it’s still a track worthy of getting your phone out for.

3. Ten Walls ‘Walking With Elephants’ Obviously Mario Basanov and his Ten Walls alias makes an appearance in the charts once again. Simply put the big horns, big strings and big builds make one big track.

2. Oliver $ and Jimi Jules ‘Pushing On’ The only non-mover of the pack, ‘Pushing On’ is still pushing Ibiza’s buttons. Some disco and funk goodness is layered over a hefty beat meaning that Oliver $ and Jimi Jules are still right on the money.

1. Patrick Topping ‘Forget’ Would you believe it, the newest member of the Hot Creations family, Patrick Topping, has gone from the number ten spot all the way to number one. ‘Forget’ is the most Shazamed track in Ibiza so check this out now.
