Ibiza Rocks win at DJ Awards, 2010 at Pacha

September 30th, 2010

Ibiza Rocks won the Outstanding Achievement Award at Tuesdays DJ Awards at Pacha here in Ibiza. Presented by Paco Medina on behalf of the Ibiza Music Cluster, Andy Mckay accepted the award:

“It is a proud moment for us receiving the outstanding achievement award at the Ibiza Dj awards. We have successfully harnessed the power of youth and recognised the importance that San Antonio plays in keeping Ibiza relevant. Whilst our brand is now starting to expand beyond Ibiza we will never forget that Ibiza is the life blood of all that we do. We would like to thank all our supporters in the Ayuntamiento of San Antonio and the consell and our hotel and event partners – on paper this idea should have never worked and without the efforts of the many we would not be here today.”

The Orb Metallic Spheres album launch in Ibiza

September 26th, 2010

As part of a 3 city tour for the new The Orb album “Metallic Spheres” feat. David Gilmour from Pink Floyd, on Friday 24th September 2010 Mambo’s in Ibiza held a launch party on the sunset strip. It was a perfect evening for it. Alex Patterson played tracks from earlier albums including the classic Little Fluffy Clouds and then the new album – a perfect backdrop to a classic Ibiza sunset.

We were lucky enough to spend 20 minutes talking to Alex P beforehand and the audio of that interview will follow shortly. We talked about everything from early festival gigs, his experiences with Big Life record label, his family, the obvious Floyd connections and everything inbetween. We could’ve talked for hours.

Ibiza DJ Awards, Pacha

September 22nd, 2010

The countdown is on to the 13th edition of the DJ Awards, one of the most important award ceremonies in the dance music calendar. This event is taking place at Ibiza’s most glamorous venue, Pacha on Tuesday September 28th.

des paulWell known in the UK, DJ DES PAUL will be hosting for the third year this very special event, with a gathering of the world’s top DJ’s.

Hed Kandi’s DJ Des Paul is already well known to many people as the man behind Capital FM’s Dance Anthems radio shows in London. Aside from 15 years in Radio, his house music heritage goes way back to the days when you could actually dance on the terrace at Café Mambo Ibiza when the sun sets. He has been involved in the music industry for over 15 years mainly in broadcast and is an award winning presenter who works also for MTV Networks UK.

nalayaThe DJ Awards ceremony will host two live performances, from 2 singers; Nalaya and Ida Corr.

Nalaya had an illustrious childhood being tutored by the same composer who also guided the career of Ricky Martin. In the summer of 2007, she signed a contract with the night club Amnesia Ibiza as a live singer and, from there, she undertook the World Tour with Matinée Group. Two years later, she was hired as the main vocalist of the Supermartxé party at Privilege Ibiza, where she continues to capture audiences of over 10´000.

Nalaya has already performed in places such as London, Amsterdam, Moscow, Cairo, Rome, Brazil… and, of course, all over Spain. She was nominated as BEST AP at  Deejaymags Awards 2009.

Ida Corr is a Danish singer, songwriter and music producer.

ida corrIda rose to fame in her native Denmark in 2005 with the release of her debut album Streetdiva and in 2006 with her follow up album Robosoul. After creating a special song with Dutch DJ Fedde le Grand as part of the Live Earth set of international music concerts, her popularity began to spread outside of her homeland.
In January 2009 Ida received an award for Best-Selling-Artist from Denmark selling music in Europe at the European Border Breakers Awards in Groningen.

A further development has been the collaboration between the DJ Awards and the Ibiza Music Cluster; which is a new music industry association recently instigated by the local government. This year the transitory integration of the Ibiza Music Awards will be presented for the awards of Outstanding Achievement, the Media award and Ibiza Resident DJ.

There will be 2 special live broadcasts, starting with Ibiza Sonica Radio 95.2FM who will be broadcasting the press cocktail party live from Ocean Drive Hotel. Catching up with some exclusive interviews of some of the nominees before the ceremony from 20.00 – 22.00. People can listen the broadcast live also on
www.ibizasonica.com Ibiza Global Radio will continue with their coverage of the ceremony live as part of the Pacha Show from Ibiza Global Radio, interviewing winners who have received their awards. Coverage will start from 23.00 – 02.00 on 97.6FM. People can listen to the broadcast live also on www.ibizaglobalradio.com
