Rave-engers ensemble! Classic Ibiza perfects Burghley House return

With less than 12 weeks to go until Classic Ibiza makes its much anticipated return to Burghley House on Saturday 30 July, the Urban Soul Orchestra (USO) reunited last week in a London music studio to perfect this year’s performance. With 15 new tracks being added to the orchestral set of over 30 house classics, including some firm crowd favourites, the concert organisers are promising their best show yet.

USO bring a rich house music pedigree to Classic Ibiza, having worked for over 25 years alongside many of the greats, including Groove Armada, Nightmares On Wax and Robert Miles.

USO’s Stephen Hussey, conductor, arranger and musical producer for Classic Ibiza, says: “I’ve got goosebumps just thinking about the awesome tracks we’ve got up our sleeve for the summer. We’re heading into the stratosphere! The Urban Soul Orchestra is on top form, and we can’t wait to feel the energy from the incredible Burghley audience when they hear what we’ve got in store for them.”

Five of the 15 new tracks in the set were chosen by Classic Ibiza’s 28,000 Facebook followers over Easter. They are: Toca’s Miracle, Fragma; Dreamer, Livin’ Joy; Waiting All Night, Rudimental; (I Wanna Give You) Devotion, Nomad; and Push The Feeling On, Nightcrawlers.

In addition to USO’s awe-inspiring performance, Classic Ibiza’s four hour celebration of stately house music also includes DJ sets from Goldierocks and Jose Luis. Jose Luis made his Classic Ibiza debut last year and kicks off proceedings. Since arriving from Venezuela over 20 years ago, he has pioneered the Urban Latin/Reggaeton sound in Europe and has been a resident DJ at Pacha (Ibiza) and Ministry of Sound (London).

Commenting on what to expect from his chill-out set, Jose Luis says: “I’m bringing a whole new vibe for ‘22. The Afro-Latin sound is well and truly back in Ibiza, so I’m feeling in my zone. Expect a fresh mix of floor-fillers and new classics, all thrown into my laid back, mash-up style!”

Tickets for the Burghley House show are selling fast and are due to sell-out. Car-parking is free, and you can bring your own food and drink. All you need to do is remember your dancing shoes and embrace the family-friendly vibe.

Classic Ibiza at Burghley is proud to be supporting East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices. There will be various fundraising initiatives taking place on the evening, including a £2.50 donation from every programme sold.
