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)

KountDown Project - Time 2 Get Up: remix pack incl. Jon Silva edit out today!

It's the year 2005. Summer. A certain Mr. Shayan and me is booked for a Soda Inc. live set & DJ gig in Ibiza's legendary Space venue. When we're finished with doing what we were supposed to, some italian boy approaches me - apparently having enjoyed the gig lots. We're exchanging emails as he's asking for a recording of said set. Back at home, I receive a message from Marcello, saying "hi", praising the gig once more in the warmest words you can imagine and cautiously asking for the recording. Me telling him I have it somewhere but gotta find it first. Me looking for the CDs with the recorded set, unable to find it.

Marcello, quite some time later (maybe one or two years - I don't remember exactly) asking for the recordings again. I'm promising to search in my warehouse which I do but without any success. I know I have the recording but where among those 3,987 CDs are the two we're both after?

Skip to 2011. Spring. A certain Marcello gets in touch again, this time asking for a remix of one of his and his mates' tune. And there, I deliver. :)

It gets even better: I'm signing two tracks from the KountDown Project, one of which will be on the upcoming Pesto EP003. And for f**k's sake, I will find that recording. One day. I swear!
