It's always struck me as a bit odd that records described as "Ibiza
anthems" are released just as the weather gets a bit chilly and the leaves
fall off the trees. Maybe it's an indication of the time taken to license a
single release, but it means none of the initial Ibiza converts to this
record will get immediate, first hand memories. In addition, it can't be
missed that this track really needs a hot, steaming dancefloor.
It has all the boxes ticked. Funky bass? Check. Catchy vocal hook?
Double check. In fact, Michael Marshall's "I don't want nobody, want
nobody baby, but you" is probably one of the happiest couplets you'll hear
this side of the white island. Danceable beat? Most definitely. Just the
sort of house based tune you want to hear at the weekend, a nicely picked
guitar doing the business.
If you're experiencing withdrawal symptoms from all things Balearic, and
from the summer in general, go buy this feel good record. Otherwise,
scratch your head that it wasn't released three months earlier.
