Release Date: 29th April 2013
Label: Defected Records
Format(s): 2CD and download

Taking its lead from the distinct musical styles at Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel’s two venues – The Ushuaïa Beach Club and The Ushuaïa Tower – The Unexpected Sessions Vol. 1 brings you cutting edge dance music from across the spectrum; the first disc packed with pure, uplifting party anthems while the second drops the BPMs for a deep excursion through the very finest house music around.

The Ushuaïa Beach Club is where the Ushuaïa legend began. Last year it welcomed a quarter of a million party goers through its doors, with its infamous parties showcasing the hottest world class, stadium acts from around the globe. The brand new The Ushuaïa Tower venue will meanwhile boast state-of-the-art technology and new features, from built-in jacuzzis on outdoor terraces to an innovative chromatherapy LED system in a spectacular location.

Ushuaïa The Album – The Unexpected Sessions Vol.1 unites these distinct venues and approaches to their musical programming for the season on a single 2-disc release.

On CD1 you’ll find some of the biggest name in EDM dropping hit after uplifting hit, including Alesso’s ‘Crash’, Hard Rock Sofa & Swanky Tunes ‘Here We Go’ and the huge Iban Reus remix of Todd Terry’s seminal ‘Jumping’. Also included are Dirty South & Deniz Koyu ‘Halo’ and Michael Woods ‘Platinum Chains’; a suitbaly epic finale to a mix that starts big and doesn’t let up for the duration.

The pace is brought down on CD2, with uber-stylish deep house very much the name of the game. The tracklist is no less impressive though; kicking off with Candi Staton ‘Hallelujah Anyway’ (Ashley Beedle’s Yardism Vocal) – arguably one of the most impressive deep house records of recent memory – the mix moves through cuts from house music royalty Solomon, Jamie Jones and Flashmob. Also includes are two records destined to be summer anthems; FCL ‘It’s You’ – easily the most hyped record of the last few months – and the stunning Follow The Step (KiNK Mix) from Rachel Row.

Whether your tastes in electronic music are alligned towards the mainroom or deep ends of the spectrum, Ushuaïa Ibiza The Album – The Unexpected Session Vol.1 has something for everyone.
