Buddha Bar XI mixed by DJ Ravin contains Rucyl's "Love In War"

Buddha Bar XI
Already in stores since March 9th 2009, we are proud to let you know that a Pesto tune has found its way onto the famous "Buddha Bar" compilation series.

DJ Ravin, of Mauritius origin, states on his website that his quest is "full of curiosity and passion" for "unknown sensations and ignored talent". While "sensation" and "talent" are with no doubt true for Pete Gust's remix of Rucyl's "Love In War", the words "unknown" and "ignored" have to be stripped off thanks to numerous weeks on DJ charts and sales sheets last year, including the top position on Beatport's DeepHouse charts last year.

Buddha Bar XI marks a stopover of the Buddha Bar movement, funny enough, this time staying in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, place to be for Jon Silva recently and homebase of our exclusive partner Fly Music.

You can get Buddha Bar XI either on CD or as a digital download from your favourite store, in case you haven't yet!

As you can see, most of the tunes are from our last "2.0 - The Next Generation Of Pesto Artists" compilation, but also our singles performed quite well. You can get these tunes (and all the other great music on Pesto and Traxx) in your favourite online store.

Rucyl's "Love In War" on Islands Vol. 05 compilation

bcb_islands_reflect
The "Islands" CD series is a cooperation between Big City Beats and King Kamehameha Beach and has succeeded not only to follow the success of other Eivissa-centered compilations but to reach even further.

King Kamehameha in Frankfurt was elected "Germany's most beautiful Open Air Venue" by the Cosmopolitan - Big City Beats have regular shows on Big FM, one of Germany's leading FMs for Black Music and House.

The story of this compilation is made up of a careful track selection seeking for timeless DeepHouse classics rather than actual Club Hits, the excellent packing design, the authentic island vibe when you miss dancing in the sunset and an excellent DJ mix by Steve Blunt (resident of King Kamehameha). No wonder this series made it into the german compilation charts before and Vol. 05 was presented as Hot Pick on Germany's Pro7 TV network.

We're proud that Rucyl's "Love In War (Pete Gust's KID Remix)" made it onto this piece of art and enjoys the appropriate company of Masters at Work, Ralf Gum, Tiger Stripes, Scope and Spirit Chaser to name but a few.

You can preview the CD's contents here - the info text is in german only.
