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

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’.
