Ibiza 2012 Special

What is your favourite ever memory of Ibiza?

“The first time you never forget. I was passing through on my way to play at “Xueno” in Formentera. Back from Formentera I could not resist to stay over in Ibiza for another 4 days! It was love at first sight!”

Tune of the summer?

“Gianni Coletti vs Keejay Freak – ‘Another Star’ (Yves Murasca Tribal Mix).”

Most overplayed record of the summer?

“Milk & Sugar – ‘Let the Sunshine’ (Tocadisco remix).”

Favourite resident DJ on the island?

“Mark Doyle.”

Why is Ibiza still the best party location in the world?

“Ibiza is a ‘huge cosmopolitan big city full of music, it combines many musical tastes, as happens in the big cities where there are many ethnic groups of people with different musical influences and different cultures. Maybe this is one of the reasons because in Ibiza so many new musical influences begin.”

Ibiza is now split straight down the middle with serious DJs spinning quality house and techno on one side, and DJs playing the big room bangers on the other. Discuss…

“This is the global market…Ibiza can’t be different…”

Favourite restaurant in Ibiza?

“I love Km 5.”

Do you think the 123 Rocktronic Festival that featured the likes of Lenny Kravitz, Elton John, Sting, David Guetta and Tiesto this year is an important addition to the Ibiza summer, or do you think it is a case of one too many party on an already bulging season?

“For many Ibiza is an island of fun, but for me Ibiza is an island of music. So I welcome everything that brings great events and great music.”

What is the one record that will always remind you of Ibiza…?

“Layo & Bushawaka – ‘Love Story’.”

Best venue in Ibiza and why?

“The port of Ibiza is the best place, because before going to the disco it is a big meeting point for everyone!”

What nationality are the craziest people on the dancefloor?

“Italians of course, a nation of crazy-people!!”

Breakthrough artist of 2012?

“Federico Scavo .. in 2013 it will be me, maybe!”

If you had to pick one person to go out clubbing with in Ibiza, who would it be?

“I’d like to take my wife (Claudia) and my daughter (Mia) to my DJ sets in Ibiza, memories hard to forget for the rest of your life!”

And finally, tell us about your first trip to the white isle…

“It was in 1989, we were 10 friends and we were on the island for a week without stopping. None of us ate or slept! Let’go!!!!!!!”
