Eric Estornel has blazed a trail for the underground in the megaclubs of Ibiza, dominated Miami Music Week and this year brought a new dimension to Time Warp. Whether as Maceo Plex or Maetrik or Mariel Ito, he is steadily taking over the dance music mainframe

His exclusive cover mix showcases a DJ at the top of his game. Less of a warm-up than full-on Maceo Plex workout, it demonstrates his stunning range as an artist and his craft as a DJ. Listen below, and allow the man himself to talk you through the tracklist.
