Rockstar Games is teaming up with iconic Ibiza party outfit CircoLoco to create a new dance music record label, CircoLoco Records. July 9 will see the new imprint release a compilation highlighting the talent commonly found at CircoLoco’s famed festivities. Ahead of the compilation, EPs from various artists will be released every week. June 4 will see the release of Seth Troxler‘s Monday Dreamin’ Blue EP, with the first track, “Lumartes (Extended)” already available.
The Ibiza music event, CircoLoco, takes place at DC-10, however, the Monday night party has been postponed throughout the entirety of the pandemic. With the new label, Rockstar Games and CircoLoco hope to bring back some of the magic found at the event’s weekly parties, with many of DC-10’s residents, including Jamie Jones, Bedouin, Moodymann, and more, contributing to the label’s upcoming compilation.
CircoLoco Founder, Antonio Carbonaro, said in a statement,
“CircoLoco has always been about the passion for finding the best music, supporting artists and bringing them to people in the purest way possible. CircoLoco Records is a natural next step for us, giving us a chance to bring the music we love to people everywhere.”
Rockstar Games, best known for being the creators behind Grand Theft Auto, have long enjoyed incorporating music into some of the world’s most in-demand games, with the GTA series hosting radio stations hosted by various artists. The company’s founder, Sam Houser, said,
“Music is fundamental to Rockstar Games – it’s part of everything we do. Partnering with our friends at CircoLoco is part of our ongoing efforts to find new ways to bring the very best underground music to the widest audience possible.”
