Rising underground star Lex Luca has mixed the Cr2’s ‘Ibiza Underground’ compilation, which has fast become the barometer of what’s hot and what’s not on the White Isle during any given year.
With support from the likes of Annie Mac, Pete Tong, B Traits, Todd Terry, Roger Sanchez and more, Luca has been steadily climbing the upper echelons of the underground throughout 2017 and the compilation is the product of all of his hard work over the last 12 months.
As the label explains “With Lex Luca’s previous singles on Cr2 succeeding at both radio, club and retail, it seemed like a natural progression to hand the reins of the forthcoming Ibiza Underground compilation over to him so he can really get his teeth into a project and shape a musical composition that reflects his DJ sets and tastes.”
We’ve got the first play of ‘Getting Paid’, which is one of five Lex Luca cuts for the compilation, and it sees the rising star on imperious form as he unloads a crisp underground roller that’s brimming with moody melodies, propulsive basslines and clever vocal snatches, which he then expertly whips into a frenzy for an underground club monster.
Speaking about being selected to mix the compilation, Lex Luca said: “Following from the success of my two latest EPs with Cr2, it made sense to progress with them and to put together this compilation.
“I’ve picked out some of the big Ibiza tracks for this year, and called on some of my favourite rising star producers to serve up exclusives.”
Cr2’s ‘Ibiza Underground’ mixed by Lex Luca is out tomorrow.
