These mythical, ethereal beauties are said to have inhabited the seas and cast their magical spell by wooing sailors with their sirenic songs. However, in Ibiza today, we meet three real life mesmerising mermaids who are not luring good sailors to a watery grave, but instead bewitching their audiences with their musical talents. A trio [...]

I used to play football for Ipswich Town when I was younger,” Rossko says. “Even then I was mad about music, always making CDs for the changing rooms on away days. When I got a bad injury – a horrendous tackle that tore my ankle ligaments – I didn’t know what to do. But I [...]

Carl Cox

Never before has an Ibiza season been prefaced by so many gripping news stories. The closure of Space. The opening of Hï. The sale of Pacha to Trilantic Capital. Defected’s daring move to San Antonio. Not to mention the relocation of techno godfather Carl Cox to Privilege, the biggest nightclub in the world. “This summer, [...]

Gorillaz – "Humanz" (Parlophone/Warner) There's scarcely a Britpop survivor as restless as Damon Albarn. While former opponents such as Oasis' Liam Gallagher have relocated to swearing and leisure, Blur's front man changes projects like others change their guitar picks. In addition to solo albums, detours into ethno and the supergroup [...]

It’s been a busy winter for Doorly. When we caught up with the Huddersfield-born spinner in early April, he was in the middle of an extensive cross-continent world tour. “I’m only back in Ibiza for a few days,” Doorly smiles. “I’m here to do my washing and celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday. Then we go to [...]

Jamiroquai – "Automaton" (Virgin) Someone like him should need no introduction. But Jay Kay had disappeared into oblivion for easily seven years, so at least a short reminder is due: From 1992 onwards, he worked very successfully with his band, Jamiroquai, on a post-modern funk and soul update.  The [...]

Ten minutes before our interview with Mambo Brothers Christian and Alan Anadon is due to start, they receive an email from their airline confirming that their Miami Music Week baggage, which didn’t make it back to Ibiza, has officially been lost. It’s rotten news, but right now it’s impossible to dampen the mood around Hostal [...]

In 2010, Tom travelled to Ibiza with 25 of his closest friends for what was supposed to be a week-long holiday. “My manager booked me to play at Blue Marlin,” Tom recalls. “I was really excited, but the owner of Blue Marlin – who is a good friend of mine now – said he knew [...]

We caught up with Cam Edwards and Joe Lenzie, better known as Sigma, in late July, hours before they were due to perform at Amnesia. A lot of doors have opened up for the drum ‘n’ bass duo in the last few years after their singles ‘Nobody To Love’ and ‘Changing’ topped the Official UK [...]
