Pacha Ibiza Chillout Classics album preview – various artists

Introducing a triple helping of tried ‘n’ tested downbeat tunes

As the title of this CD suggests, this is a selection of laid-back tunes customarily spun at the latter end of a night of sweat-inducing, high-tempo house. Their raison d’être was all about bringing clubbers down as the Ibiza sun rose.

Among the scores of well-known tracks are a fair sprinkling of classic nu-jazz and downbeat songs. Falling squarely in that camp are Kruder & Dorfmeister’s superb remix of Trans Fatty Acid, Zero 7’s Give It Away and 4hero’s wonderful reworking of I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun.

No matter how seasoned a clubber you are, a triple CD will always throw up surprises. Afterlife’s dub version of Pasilda and the rumbling bass line of Aphex Twin’s We Are The Music Makers are just such tunes. As you’d expect from a chillout CD, they’re rather cool.
