Fridays at Es Vive….Sunset to Sunrise

On June 7th Hotel Es Vive is kicking off its summer season with a weekly Friday party, celebrating the return to the music scene with their first compilation release for 2 years produced by Seamless Recordings.  Showcasing the best of Hotel Es Vive is Abigail Bailey playing live with Miko Weaver of Prince fame playing an acoustic set along with 2 of the islands finest residents, Martijn ten Velden and Graham Sahara.  Don’t expect the run of the mill DJ sets but a real fresh alternative.  The party starts from 8pm and finishes outside at 12am and moves downstairs to the Experience Bar where Tom Crane and friends take control to the early hours of the morning…. Friday’s at Es Vive in collaboration with Fix Ibiza and Seamless Recordings giving you a fresh, live music session, with live elements and not your usual run of the mill music.  Sunset to Sunrise

Abigail is also responsible for co-writing the top line to Chris Lake’s ‘Changes’ and MYNC projects “Something On Your Mind’, Soul Central’s ‘Time after Time’ along with many more releases on labels such as MOS, Stealth, AATW, Ego, Defected, GNAF, Pacha Records and Toolroom.

Miko Weaver

Weaver came to Prince’s attention when he was a member of Sheila E.‘s band. He and some other members of the band joined The Revolution in the studio to record a jam of “I Would Die 4 U” that would later become the song’s 12″ single. Prince later picked Weaver to provide guitar for his short-lived R&B band, The Family. When The Family dissolved, several members including Weaver were absorbed into The Revolution and participated in the recording of the Parade album, and the accompanying tour (which would be The Revolution’s last). When The Revolution disbanded at the end of the tour, many of the newer members, including Weaver, stayed with Prince to become his touring band for the acclaimed Sign o’ the Times and Lovesexy tours. Weaver also participated in many studio sessions with Prince during this time.

About the album….

After a break from several years of music compilations by Hed Kandi and Fierce Angel, Es Vive have come back with a truly independent mix, not a label catalogue mix like so many other´s these days but 3 CDs of some of the finest chillout, deep house, tech house and house around

A unique concept set in a beautiful building focusing on the very best elements of service, style and hospitality. Not defined by a genre or generation, constantly evolving and driven by passion of ambience, attitude and quality.  Hotel Es Vive  redefined the  hotel scene on the island and spanning 3 decades since conception still remains an iconic emblem of the famed Balearic freedom is will always represent.

This CD is a small sample of the music you will hear at Hotel Es Vive. Elegantly combining the days and nights…..from the relaxed post slumber of the mornings around the pool…easing into the afternoon DJ sets and up on the roof terrace for a sunset cocktail and finally to the highs of the last drinks in the Experience  Bar at dawn..this will be the soundtrack to your summer and the amazing stay at Ibiza’s favourite hotel.

CD1 compiled and mixed by T_Mo the chillout moniker of Timo Garcia including his exclusive mix of Sander Kleinenberg´s My Lexicon.  Timo Garcia is a hugely respected producer…

CD2 compiled and mixed by Tom Crane, a producer and DJ as well as being a mover and shaker in celebrity circles of Ibiza and London, last year he compiled Blue Marlin Ibiza and promotes and DJs at Es Vive everyFriday, and is music director of Ocean Beach Club

CD3 compiled and mixed by Seamless boss Graham Sahara, as well as managing the label, resident at Pacha Ibiza and also the original resident of the hotel some 10 years ago.
