The whiff of sunscreen, the scent of surf, the hint of a mojito – close your eyes and you can almost smell it!! Yup – real terms, Ibiza’s right around that corner and for that you’ll be needing yourselves an anthem! Something equatorially-hot in places, evocatively flyaway in others and one that’s never, ever less than elevating?!
Hang on… we’ve got just the thing!
With summer on their mind, early April saw Paul van Dyk and label-mate/super-chum Alex M.O.R.P.H. turn up the thermostat and hotfoot it into the studio. Channeling their inner sun (wasn’t hard!), the pair co-created this year’s anthem for SHINE Ibiza’s soon-to-be season-long run at San Antonio’s legendary Eden.
“Vibe-wise, this year’s hymn to the hot stuff was never going to skimp on temperate Balearic feel goodery. Pads and chords have palpably cyanic accents, the rich mainline gives it its thermal lift, while its firm bass conveys all the necessary floor-drive. We’re looking at an anthem in both name and nature here.”— DJ Mag
A track that condenses all the elements of SHINE’s unforgettable experience into seven minutes and eighteen seconds of trance perfection, ‘Shine Ibiza Anthem 2019’ is here. This is the one you’ll hum as you (eventually) head back to the hotel.
Not only are we sharing with you the track that’s going to heat up the dance floor at Eden each Thursday (and let’s be honest, it’s going to light up the night at every club and festival this summer); we’re also going to share the upcoming SHINE Ibiza lineup that will sweep you off your feet and lift you into trance heaven.
