Pesto 011: Sandra Lima - Higher (incl. Jay-J and The Mulder remixes)

pesto011_reflect
With huge support from House jocks, radio stations and tastemakers all over, we were able to place this massive summer tune on a couple of upcoming compilations already. Raisani Miami Sessions (Dubai), Ibiza Global Radio, Open Bar (NYC) and Clubstar (Germany) - they all had a reason to put "Higher" in their mixes.

Finally, Sandra Lima's debut on Pesto is happening and here are six reasons to look forward to the outdoor season: DeepHouse icon Jay-J contributes two smashing mixes, Jon Silva adds some mid-90ies flavour and The Mulder is pleasing us with his top-notch DeepTech sound. This is the sound of the summer 2008!

PestoMix 008 by Ricardo Torres - New & Improved

PestoCast150x150
[intro: please read about the reasons we had to change Ricardo's PestoMix] Imagine this: you're listening to some internet radio station and one of the DJs presented there really catches your attention with a very unique blend of US House. One day, you discover a tune in one of his mixes and the track list reveals it's a white label bootleg. You're now searching for this guy's web site, get in touch with him and he is more than just nice and puts the tune up his server. You are staying in touch with him, become online friends and it turns out that his wife is an amazing singer.

Sounds like a fairytale? It surely is, but that's the story how Ricardo Torres, Sandra Lima and Jon Silva got in touch.

So today is like a dream come true in several ways: first off, we are proud to present PestoMix 008 by West Coast Collective's Ricardo Torres. Below in the track list, you will also find Sandra Lima's brand new "Higher" which will be released in late April. The third dream come true is the fact that you'll have "Higher" remixed by House music legend Jay-J of Shifted Music. Here's the track list:

01. Manuel Tur & Dplay - Move [Compost / Z Records] (includes Akabu - Ride The Storm (Talkapella))
02. Rhythm Plate feat. Astral T - Inside Me [Hudd Traxx]
03. Julius Papp feat. Tonee Green - Primitive Future (Doruk Ozlen Mix) [Soulfuric]
04. Ta - Time (Original Extended Vocal Mix) [POJI]
05. Mirco Esposito & Tommy Mads feat. Andrew Robinson - Feeling (Club Mix) [Deeptown Music]
06. James Bryan - Beautiful World (Central Avenue Soulful Mix) [Barcoda]
07. Bongoloverz feat. An-Tonic - The Ministers (Classic Mix) [Soulfuric]
08. Bobby D'Ambrosio feat. Kelli Sae - Love Forever More, Amen (Fabulous and Jones Club Mix) [Soulfuric]
09. Shagman - Ring My Thing [Candy Town]
10. Groundholder - Do It 4 Da Love (Tommy Largo Mix) [Connected Musik]
11. Sandra Lima - Higher (Jay-J Remix) [Pesto 011]
