"Destination Calabria" is a DJ track by Italian producer Alex Gaudino, with vocals by Crystal Waters. It is the first single released from his debut album My Destination.

The track is a mashup, taking the instrumental from Rune's "Calabria" and the vocals from Alex Gaudino's and Crystal Waters' "Destination Unknown", both originally released in 2003. It was produced with the help of Maurizio Nari and Ronnie Milani, matching the saxophone hook/riff from "Calabria" to Crystal Waters' voice. "Destination Calabria" was released as a 12 inch single on December 4, 2006 by Italian label Rise Records, and as a CD single, on 19 March 2007, by British label Data Records. It originally charted in Australia in February 2004 peaking at #98 under the title "Destination Unknown"[2] before being re-released as "Destination Calabria" and reaching #2 in 2007.

Music video[edit]

The music video is directed by Eran "Rani" Creevy, produced by Ben Pugh for Ministry of Sound and choreographed by David Leighton. It features female dancers in highly sexualized green marching band costumes, pretending to play various instruments in a seductive manner, and dancing inside an infinity cove. In some scenes, seemingly hundreds of the dancers are seen at once, but these are simply the original eight replicated many times using digital imagery.

Waters herself does not appear in the video, but some of the marching band members mime her lyrics.

Chart performance[edit]

"Destination Calabria" entered the UK singles chart at No. 18 on 18 March 2007 on downloads alone and eventually peaked at No. 4. It also reached No. 1 on the UK Dance chart. It peaked at No. 3 on the Australian ARIA Singles Chart and No. 1 on the ARIA Dance Chart.
