CUTTING-EDGE DANCE MUSIC FROM KOH SAMUI’S SUN-DRENCHED SHORES
For the next instalment in their jet-setting mix series, Nikki Beach head to the island of Koh Samui with a double disc expertly compiled by house legend Sandy Rivera. Featuring 26 tracks and two mixes, the music on show ranges from the enchanting vocals of Rachel Row and belting basslines of Huxley & Shenoda to the rolling beats of Jesse Rose and Noir & Sandy Rivera himself, resulting in slick collection of the very finest house music around.
Located in the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Samui is an idyllic holiday destination, boasting coconut trees, beautiful warm beaches and exotic weather, with Nikki Beach Koh Samui itself lying on one of the most secluded locations along the shores of Lipa Noi Beach. Nikki Beach locations are always spectacular, and Koh Samui is now exception, with the Sunset Terrace Lounge lending sensational views to one of Thailand’s best sunsets.
For over fifteen years now Nikki Beach has been combining contemporary electronic music for its own luxury international venues. Famous for its focus on booking world class DJs and curating a quality music policy, this new compilation further cements its existing stellar reputation.
A true legend of house music Sandy Rivera has little left to prove in a career that has been littered with moments of genius, yet continues to perform at the very top of his game with a level of consistency that is unparalleled. Here he shows his prowess as a selector with FCL’s Gentil Remix of Rachel Row’s ‘Follow The Step’ swiftly followed by the inclusion of Sandy’s own rendition of ‘Fall For You’. Also included are Name One and Maxxi Soundsystem’s ‘One In Three’ and Huxley & Shenoda ‘Premier’, both huge house records from this year.
Disc Two warms up with a poignant remix of Jacques Greene ‘The Look’ by Koreless and maintains the emotional intensity with Guti ‘Hope’. The second half of the mix moves through a couple of bassy numbers from Aaaron, while Copyright’s recent soulful excursion ‘Sacrifice’ precedes Sandy’s own version of his collaboration with superstar Danish producer Noir on ‘SOTOM’.
Those looking for an expertly crafted musical escape from the last approaching winter months need look no further.
