Ernesto Ferreyra

El Paraiso De Las Tortugas

(Candenza; US: 8 Dec 2010; UK: 15 Nov 2010)

House Music in Paradise

The very minute headphones covered my ears and the sounds of Ernesto Ferreyra’s melodic house music transported me to the paradise he reminisces about on his debut album, El Paraiso De Las Tortugas, loosely translated “The Turtles’ Paradise”. This freshman LP (which includes eight additional bonus remixes) paints a vibrant picture of a slammin’ celebration crammed with party people dancing into the early morning hours. Complete with penetrating drumbeats, vintage jazz, a touch of the islands and a romantic notion, Ferreyra provides us the perfect blended cocktail of styles for dancing the night away. The Argentine-born DJ has called nightlife’s most inspired destinations home: Mexico City, Berlin, Montreal and Ibiza. Ferreyra shares a taste of spice, sex and deep house from the first track “Mil Y Una Noches” (One Thousand and One Nights) until the end with “El Comienzo De Todo Lo Demas” (The Beginning of Everything Else). Ferreyra maintains consistency with a diversified flavor that keeps you nodding your head and shaking your hips. It’s best described inside the album itself: “If this is what the turtles are partying to in paradise, we’d all do well to find a shell.” Not yet a staple in the electronic scene, Ernesto Ferreyra has appeared on various compilations since 2006. He might be making a name for himself yet among other well-known DJs, but rest easy, it won’t be long till we see him at our favorite festivals.
