We’re glad we tuned in to Annie Mac’s kickoff of Radio 1′s Ibiza marathon this afternoon (or evening, if you’re in Europe).
Among other guests, which included Skream and Calvin Harris, Annie hosted a short live set from Swedish band Little Dragon, who just released their third (and highest-ever-charted) album, Ritual Union, last week. After kicking off the set with the single “Ritual Union,” singer Yukimi Nagano announced that the band would play “a club classic.”
To our delight, the band proceeded to cover Crystal Waters’ classic “Gypsy Woman (La Da Dee).” In case that wasn’t enough, it drifted into an interlude covering the Robin S. classic “Show Me Love.” Listen below.Little Dragon - Gypsy Woman (Crystal Waters cover live from Ibiza on BBC Radio 1)
The band went on to cap off their set with a great rendition of one of their earlier tracks, “Twice.”
