OUT NOW: ESTIVA – RAGE RACE + EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW @ HI IBIZA

 

The Dutch electronic dance music DJ has performed at events across the world, Estiva has brought his infectious sound and energy to some of the most pivotal events in the scene. His new track ‘Rage Race’ shows a totally different side of his album ‘Spectacle’.

Estiva: ‘As much as I love the pretty and emotional melodies, sometimes I just feel like raving and raging on the dance floor. Rage Race is a bass driven track I wrote having a dark and steamy club environment in mind. I named it Rage Race because I want to see which one of you clubbers can go out of its mind best!’

Be ready to go on another crazy ride with Estiva, listen to ‘Rage Race’ here.

 

 

 

Definitely one of the darker tracks from his ‘Spectacle’ album, ‘Rage Race’ shows another side to the acclaimed signature sound of Dutch top producer Estiva. Merging a vicious sounding bassline with thumping beats and buzzing synth rises, this tune sets the mood as soon as it kicks in late at night.

And talking about dark and steamy clubs, we met Estiva during the summer at the world famous club Hi Ibiza, and sat down with him for a chat, check this out!

I’m in A State Of Trance ….at Ushuaia

When we talk about summer,

the first place that comes in my mind is …Ibiza, the white Isle!

every summer I love to go there for a week or two and just reload my battery with positive energy under the sun….Chilling with a nice mojito on the beach and taking a swim in its crystal water is pretty much my definition of …Heaven!

This summer I had the chance to spend there some more days than usual, just landing at the airport brings me in a good mood, there’s is something in the air that makes it all beautiful, and I feel like that, is the place where I belong…

To top it all, there are loads of party to attend at night….

Let me tell you about my favorite party ever….

It takes place at Ushuaia, the famous glamorous hotel in playa d’en Bossa, and it’s called…Armin is in A State Of Trance!!

And with him, other thousands people are in a state of trance.

The party starts at 5 pm (the sun is still shining high in the sky and you can barely breath….but hey, I wanna live it from the beginning, because, all the djs there deserve my attention, ….yes, I am an Armada freak, so I really love all its djs )

I’ve attended 3 ASOT parties during the summer, so I had the chance to meet a lot of my favorite djs and to have a nice little chat with most of them, which really made my night.

All the dis  are playing MainStage except the man himself, Armin who has a very special place this year, right in the middle of the pool, with a 360 degrees rotating console, pretty awesome right?

He starts playing at about 9.30 pm until midnight.

The show is always full of energy, fireworks, happiness, good vibes and smiles, and time flies so when the clock strikes midnight and the party is over, you really starts counting the days to the next asot party.

I’ve also attended a very special gig, on August 6th, where Armin was playing his solo set, that means….7 hours!!!

That show was epic….

Here are some pics of my experience, did you ever attend this party? Did you like it? Let me know 🙂 would love to share opinions…
