The Chic bass guitarist, who is famed for his unique guitar lines and songwriting skills, is the perfect candidate to record the track – not only because of his history, but also due to his recent involvement with electronic music, most notably the new Daft Punk album, Random Access Memories, which he exclusively told the IMS at his keynote speech last year. The first single ‘Get Lucky’ has been no.1 in the UK charts for the past 3 weeks.

Nile’s production credits read like a who’s who of the greatest pop stars in history, from Madonna to David Bowie, Duran Duran and Mick Jagger to name but a few.

“I am so excited to be creating the IMS Anthem 2013. I had such an inspirational time at IMS last year and its opened up many new connections including collaborations with many contemporary electronic artists. I’ve created this new track with Ibiza and the electronic community in mind before handing over to one of my favourite remixers of today – Eats Everything. I can’t wait to hear what he does with it, and to hear it at Dalt Vila in Ibiza! Historic site for historic music productions.”

On remix duties they have a leader of the new school, providing a perfect thread from the past to the present and the future – Eats Everything. One of the electronic music scene’s most famous faces, Eats Everything hails from Britain’s West Country and has made his way onto the global stage thanks to his flawless DJ skills and excellent productions. It was in 2011 when his single ‘Entrance Song’ took the underground scene by storm and launching him into the limelight, after more than a decade of hard work. Now reaping the benefits of all the work he put in before he hit the big time, Eats Everything will no doubt throw down a serious remix of Nile’s anthem and we can’t wait to hear it.

The typically straight-talking DJ told us:

“It still hasn’t quite sunk in that I am remixing Nile Rodgers, it’s ridiculous!!! I am so excited though and can’t wait to get stuck in!”

Every year IMS commissions two very special artists to conceive and remix its anthem, all within a very limited timeframe. The producer of the anthem has just one day to create it, while the remixer has the same allotted time the following day. Both tracks are then played at the IMS Finale, which takes place at the UNESCO World Heritage Site – Dalt Vila.
