Mix Of The Day: Thrill & Pleasure – Live From The Croatia Wave Villa



Just ask astronomers, religious zealots or pregnant teenagers: it may have happened suddenly, but it all began somewhere.

In eight years Croatia has grown to become the go to country for festivals-with around 14 events happening peak season. This could be down to a number of facts distributed via tweed coated lecturer: flight prices, the currency, the climate, but a large part of it could be down to the DNA coding: the beach, boat party and holiday vibe that permeates all Croatian festivals which has made the Dalmatian Coast such an attractive destination for music lovers and sun worshippers alike.

Thus like anywhere worth going you can be sure DT will have a presence there which is why this summer we’ve hooked up with Croatia Wave to bring to you the first in a series of fresh and exclusive mixes from different Croatia Wave Villas Located around the Adriatic.

Who are Croatia Wave we hear you cry?

Croatia Wave apart from being friends of DT are a specialist festival accommodation company that provide both luxury Croatian Villas and  apartments with a bespoke touch. Founded in 2011 by two young Ibiza veterans and Croatian festival enthusiasts who saw a gap in the market for offering anything from standard Croatian festival holidays to boat trips, exclusive yoga retreats, private Island parties and everything in between. So now we know a little more about Croatia Wave what about our inaugural Live From The Villa DJs?

Thrill & Pleasure is made up of London based DJs and producers, Mike Gill and Bobby Pleasure. Both long-term DJs in their own right; their love for a similar style of house music was first formed in Ibiza 2007, where together they regularly attended such parties as Circo Loco at DC10 and the zoo project. Since then Bobby has held down residencies at some of London’s best underground parties while also being a renowned promoter; hosting ‘Shanta Love Club’ a bespoke, invite only gathering held in top secret locations in and around London. Mike on the other hand is better known for his releases on Hot Creations and Wolf + Lamb. His most recent EP on Jamie Trench’s Roots for Bloom Records received high acclaim from top international DJs across the board with Apollonia charting it and opening their BPM Festival set with the B-side track ‘The Message’. Together ‘Thrill & Pleasure’ specialise in an eclectic, but always grooving style of House and Disco with their playfulness shining through with every selection. Although still in their infancy as a duo, the future is certainly looking bright for this young pair and so we thought they’d be perfect to open up our sunshine laden new live mix series.

Disclaimer: this set may contain sunshine and listening to it may lead to a sudden and irresistible urge to head to the Dalmatian Coast. Listen at your own risk.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
