Andy Taylor live in Ibiza – and live online

July 11th, 2009


Hopefully we’re not tempting fate but we will be broadcasting Andy Taylor’s world premiere of his new album The Underdog Has Landed” – from Somni club in Ibiza tomorrow live over the web (Saturday 11th July). We’ll be doing some tests during the day to see how it actually works – we are all of the opinion though that it should be fun, whether it works or not.

Watch this space for the live web and audio link – the worst case is the twitter feeds will be used as will live photos etc across all of andy’s social networks and there will be a live chat and twitter. There will be multiple options of tomorrow night – all of which will be condensed down into a handy – er click here – type thing :)

andy was on Ibiza Sonica and Ibiza Global Radio today and was in good humour – and yes andy you did manage to get a swear word past the delay (on global anyway)… We’re going down tomorrow to set up everything up and do some broadcasts, soundchecks etc – looking forward to this – this should be how you do multimedia and net stuff

Andy Taylor in Ibiza, openings & a new Pacha CD

April 10th, 2009

Yestarday afternoon we met up with Andy Taylor, who is recording his new album, to talk about his new project, the music business, politics and life after Duran Duran. We met at the studio but first off we decamped to the nearest bar for an hour or so chat and then back to the studio where he played us 5 early versions of the tracks he’s recorded so far – even at this early stage you can tell its going to be a large and loud sounding album – very good stuff. We’ll be meeting again and will do a full article for probably June edition of the magazine. You can follow his twitter feed during the recording.

Tonight though is a busy one – first off is the bi-weekly pool competition and tonight the newly opened Queen Vic is hosting The Tall Ships team, then Nassau Beach Club on Playa d’en Bossa beach is having their opening party and then finishing off with Vaughan’s party in the funky room at Pacha.

We have also just added the new Pacha release – “Pacha Classics” – a 3 Cd collection of classic Pacha Tunes mixed by Paul Taylor. You can buy Pacha Classics from our ishopibiza online store

Disc One kicks things off with two killer number ones including Spiller ‘Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love)’ and Room 5 ft. Oliver Cheatham ‘Make Luv’. Alongside classic tracks from Blaze, Shakedown, Kings Of Tomorrow, Gat Decor & The Source ft. Candi Staton.

Disc two follows up with another excellent selection of Pacha mega anthems such as New Order ‘Blue Monday’, Three Drives ‘Greece 2000′ and Fragma ‘Toca Me’.

As if that wasn’t enough, disc three brings us bang up-to-date with a fine helping of future classics from David Guetta vs The Egg ‘Love Don’t Let Me Go’, Eric Prydz vs Floyd ‘Proper Education’ and Bodyrox ‘Yeah Yeah’.
