CircoLoco, one of the most influential brands in global, real-world club culture, and Rockstar Games, creators of some of the world’s most popular and critically acclaimed video games (such as the Grand Theft Auto series), have joined forces to launch CircoLoco Records, a new music label that blends the physical and digital worlds of entertainment.
CircoLoco Records will debut with a series of EPs featuring tracks from the label’s upcoming first compilation album, Monday Dreamin’, featuring contributions from innovators and icons from every era of CircoLoco’s greatest parties, such as new releases from Carl Craig, Luciano, Seth Troxler, Moodymann, and Rampa, as well as up-and-coming artists who point to the future of dance music.

Circoloco Records to release a series of EPs weekly
On June 4th, the first EP, Monday Dreamin‘ Blue EP, will drop, featuring new tracks from Sama’ Abdulhadi, Kerri Chandler, Rampa, and Seth Troxler, as well as a Dixon remix of Deichkind‘s “Autonom.” The track “Lumartes” by Seth Troxler is now available to stream and download. In the weeks leading up to the full compilation’s release on July 9th, more EPs will be released weekly.
CircoLoco’s dancefloor has become a primary intersection between underground dance music and elements of fashion, art, and wider culture for over 20 years through its parties at Ibiza’s DC10 and around the world. Many DJs’ careers were boosted by the club’s commitment to music-focused, no-frills club nights with mixed lineups and an eye to the future, including Tania Vulcano, Ricardo Villalobos, Jamie Jones, and others. CircoLoco’s commitment to championing forward-thinking dance music artists extends beyond the club with the launch of CircoLoco Records.
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 is a natural next step for us, giving us a chance to bring the music we love to people everywhere. – CircoLoco Founder Antonio Carbonaro
