Following a two-year hiatus, Love International is preparing to make its long-overdue return this July.

The Croatian event, which was founded in 2016, is a highlight on the European festival circuit. Lauded for its thoughtful curation, Love International is the place to catch some of dance music’s most beloved selectors and emerging talents in one idyllic location: the seaside town of Tisno. 

Ahead of its fifth anniversary festivities, we’ve teamed up with Love International to present Transmission to Tisno – a b2b mix series hosted on crackaud.io. Much like previous instalments, whilst also in keeping with the b2b focus of this year’s event, the four-part series sees festival favourites and newcomers to bill going head-to-head in the virtual booth. But enough from us, get locked in below.  


Shy One b2b Errol

Bright, breezy and fit to boost even the sourest of moods, this offering from two of London’s finest, Shy One and Errol, will pick you up from your seat and whisk you away to sunnier climes. Either there, or front left at Touching Bass dance. Marked out by a distinctive ‘day-to-night’ feel, the pair roll through deep house, broken beat and soulful rollers over the course of two delectable hours. Stacks of goodness, stitched together with love.

Elena Colombi b2b Phuong Dan

Safely positioned in an expanse just out of reach of any clear genre constraints is where we find this eclectic epic. Here, Hamburg-based DJ and Golden Pudel resident Phuong Dan finds common ground with a fellow purveyor of far-reaching sounds, Elena Colombi. Tune in for two hours of ambient arcs, deep techno rollers and much more.

Manami b2b Tai Lokun

Touching down with a bag of heavy-duty heaters, Bristol’s Manami and London’s Tai Lokun position themselves at the intersection between house, techno and the broader brush strokes of percussion-driven material in this dynamic mix. A non-stop frenzy of dancefloor-certified cuts spun by a pair of future stars. 

Orpheu the Wizard b2b Powder

With Amsterdam staple Orpheu the Wizard and Japanese virtuoso Powder at the helm, this cross-oceanic back-and-forth evokes the sense of having travelled across windy shores and far-flung lands to deliver you to somewhere dream-like. Traversing minimal synth, new age and sublime house, their mix will surely serve as an ideal soundtrack to a lazy afternoon adrift in rhythmic contemplation. 

Love International 2022 takes place on 13-19 July in Tisno, Croatia
