Hideout, the label run by Luca Bacchetti and Davide Squillace, finally drops a tune that’s been the talk of Ibiza this summer: “That Ginger Ponytail,” a collaboration between Squillace and Argentina’s Guti. Bright vibraphones and shimmying shakers give the track a refreshing, easygoing touch, reflecting the way the tune came together.
The session was done “at night,” says Squillace, “with lots of drinks and cigarettes in a very relaxed environment. I would work on some bits, and Guti played keys—apparently it worked out.”
Apparently! Rounding out the release come remixes from Dubfire and Kerri Chandler. “We have been close friends with Ali for the last four years, and I thought he would enjoy working on the remix of this track,” says Squillace. “As for Kerri, he started playing for Circoloco this year and we got closer as friends, and music-wise. I thought this track would definitely fit his style, and they both did an amazing job, as expected.”
