Since first making its debut in 1999 at DC10 nightclub in Ibiza, the world-renowned party CircoLoco has grown to become one of dance music’s most visionary brands. Over the past 20 years, CircoLoco has spread its influence all over the globe, throwing unforgettable events in major cities across multiple continents with a regular roster consisting of house and techno’s most influential acts.

For the first time, Circoloco — in collaboration with video game titan Rockstar Games — is making new headway into the world of dance music with a brand-new record label, CircoLoco Records.

Taking pride in the fact that their parties have helped jumpstart the careers of hugely successful artists such as Ricardo Villalobos, Jamie Jones, Guy Gerber, and many more, CircoLoco Founder Antonio Carbonaro sees CircoLoco Records as “a natural next step” for the brand. “CircoLoco has always been about the passion for finding the best music, supporting artists, and bringing them to the people in the purest way possible.”

CircoLoco Records’ debut release will be in the form of a compilation EP titled Monday Dreamin’ Blue that features Seth Troxler, Kerri Chandler, Dixon, Rampa, and Sama’ Abdulhadi — out on June 4th. The five-track EP is the first in a series in the lead up to the full Monday Dreamin’ compilation album that drops on July 9th, featuring additional tracks from more CircoLoco icons, such as Carl Craig, TiNI, Luciano, Red Axes, Lost Souls of Saturn & TOKiMONSTA, and more.

The first track from CircoLoco Records’ forthcoming release, Seth Troxler’s “Lumartes,” is out now. Listen to the track below and purchase it on Beatport here.

As one of the world’s most prominent and influential video game creators, Rockstar Games’ reputation for supporting music and club culture is unparalleled. Grand Theft Auto’s curated radio stations host legendary selectors such as Giles Peterson and digital nightclubs updates that feature residents like Palms Trax, Keinemusik, and Moodymann, bringing the sounds of clubland and the underground into the homes of millions of players around the world.

“Music is fundamental to Rockstar Games – it’s part of everything we do,” says Rockstar Games Founder, Sam Houser. “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.”
