Mediterranean Vibes: listen to all tracks in full length

Pesto EP003 cover artwork
Released as a Beatport exclusive just yesterday, we have a special goody for you.

From now on, we will post full length tracks to Pesto Music's YouTube channel. All tracks will be organized in playlists so you have the whole release in proper track order, excellent audio quality and can share either the playlist or individual tracks with your friends. If you feel ripping the YouTube file is appropriate rather than supporting the artists and appreciating our service, you're an idiot:)

As a consequence, we will get rid of our Flash-based MP3 player in the sidebar, thus making pesto.de a better experience for users of Apple's iOS devices and other gadgets not supporting Flash or users who refuse to install the plugin [update: once Google has fixed the problems]. On top of that, the page load times will decrease. We will switch to the new sidebar later today.

We will begin with Pesto EP003 "Mediterranean Vibes" and constantly add our older releases. That will also mean we'll add the YouTube playlists to our catalogue section, where you can research our releases and artists.

Here we go:





Pesto EP003: V.A. - Mediterranean Vibes excl. on Beatport

Pesto EP003 cover artwork
An unusually dry April and May with lots of warm and sunny days have set us in summer mode early this year.

To pick up that feeling and bring it to you, we have just released what we would call a proper summer soundtrack. Say hi to the third installment of our multi-artist Pesto EP titled "Mediterranean Vibes".

"Mediterranean Vibes" makes the full circle from really deep and chilly beach tracks with a gentle tribal touch such as "Shake This" by KountDown Project, over a dubby and atmospheric re-interpretation of Christos Fourkis' "About Me" by EDM veteran Bobby Deep, to bouncy and uplifting House tunes like "Rhythm Xord" by J Kar. When the sun has set, you can begin the evening with Helly Larson's bumping "The Sea" tune, drop John Sweet's "Don't Forget", an atmospheric mover, just to give the crazy clubbers what they need with pure peaktime material "Success" by Fair Play Knight.

The tracks have found lots of fans in the global DJ community, causing DJ mixes to pop up on the net containing one or another tune from the EP. We'll follow up on that in brief and present you a couple of brand new mixes that are worth having.

"Mediterranean Vibes" is out exclusive on Beatport today, the 26th May 2011, all other stores will follow 9th June 2011.

track list:
01. KountDown Project - Shake This
02. Christos Fourkis - About Me (Bobby Deep Remix)
03. J Kar - Rhythm Xord 
04. Helly Larson - The Sea
05. John Sweet - Don't Forget
06. Fair Play Knight - Successful (Dub)

cover artwork for Pesto 013: Replika - Inner Visions (incl. Elastic Sound & Jon Silva mixes)
Tired of football? Enough Vuvuzela for now? Looking for some sweet DJ mixes to add to your library? We've got what you're looking for!

In addition to our post from last week, we have three more mixes that contain our current release "Inner Vision" by Replika [Pesto 013] along lots of other great tunes. Here's that:

From a long-time Pesto supporter and host of the "Paradigm" radio show on Frisky Radio comes the first mix. Zach DeVincent (who will also contribute a lovely deep remix for Alankara's upcoming single on Pesto) has invited us to his show a couple of times already and just recently rolled out an updated edition of his radio show - the "Paradigm Deep Sessions" - together with DJane Miss Disk. Here's the second hour of the show:

You should also check out Zach's mix archive page for more free mixes.

After my two stays on Crete last year, I met a couple of very nice peeps and John Sweet is one of them. He runs the "Sweet Reactions" radio show on Traffic FM and is based in Heraklion. Pretty eclectic set so we're sure you like that one, as well. Playing Replika is...umm...sweeeet! Efharisto poly, John!

And we have another long-time friend of Pesto with the name Ricarco Torres we're sure you have already heard of. He's a member of the infamous West Coast Collective DJ team who frequently throw wild parties in the L.A. area. Ricardo has a bunch of really awesome mixes on his page as well as on the WCC page so make sure you check out the other files, as well. Here's Volume 4 of the classy "City Sonar" series.
