So sit back, close your eyes, feel the sunshine and let that very special electric atmosphere soak in as Markus Schulz takes you to a place where you'll want to visit again, and again, and again. Armada at Ibiza - enjoy!
Playing an incredible 12 out of the 14 Armada parties in Ibiza, it was only right that Markus Schulz put together this mix CD. From the moment he drops his first track on this album, the beautifully euphoric Back For More by Mr. Pit, he sums up his entire philosophy about the island - "I have been here once before, I still come back for more". Martin Roth and Paris Nova's remix of DJ Eco's Song Of Innocence begins to lift the mix up and up, it's techy undertones bringing energy and drive, melding through into the progressive sounds of Canyon BLVD's Kimchi and Markus' song of the year so far, Arnej's They Always Come Back. Sphaera's Back flows into the ripper track Guanacaste by Element One, building towards the sensational bassline of Duderstadt's remix of the second Mr. Pit track on the album, Shana. Christine Soto's vocals on Walk With Me blow the mix apart, ramping it up for one of the biggest tunes this year, Phoria (Elevation remix). A massive track that is prime main room material, this is Armada at Ibiza on a plate. Working towards a spine-tingling crescendo of a finale, Markus chooses Cramp's Deadline and Mike Koglin's awe-inspiring remix of Sequentia presents Sunshade's Vertigo to round things off.
Sensational from start to finish, Ibiza in every aspect, Armada through and through, definitive Markus Schulz… this is the cd that will bring you in the Ibiza mood this summer!
