David Lynch IMS Ibiza 2011 Keynote Interview

May 12th, 2011

David Lynch Keynote Interview Live from the Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles to Ibiza
Thursday 26th May – 8pm at the Ibiza Gran Hotel

There’s not really much that can be added to this press release we got just now – other than – wow….

Photo by Adam Bordow © 2010

Yes that’s correct, despite the IMS Ibiza team now focusing on the final preparations for this year’s IMS: 2011 – coming live and direct from the Ibiza Gran Hotel – we are very excited to announce that as a last-minute addition, the legendary film director David Lynch will be beamed in via video Skype from his recording studio just off Mulholland Drive. The interview will take place at 8pm (local European time), which is 11am in Los Angeles and will focus on Lynch’s music production career which in 2011 has seen him release the amazing ‘Good Day Today’ / ‘I Know’ single – remixed by the cream of the electronic world including Underworld, Skream, Sasha. Boys Noize and Diskjokke.

The interview will be lead by the three people who played pivotal roles in introducing David Lynch to the Ibiza world: Jason Bentley, who first played Lynch’s new experimental music live on air on KCRW in America and tricked the world into thinking it was by Underworld, and who at last years IMS passed the music on to Ben Turner (IMS partner). Ben in turn played it to his Sunday Best Recordings partner and BBC Radio 1 DJ Rob da Bank, and the pair quickly signed the single and are now planning the release of his full-length album for the label later this year.

The interview will see Lynch and his engineer “Big” Dean Hurley interviewed from the studio as they show us exactly how they made the music and how they turn it out in Lynch’s studio.

David Lynch stated today:

      “I’m excited to talk to those attending the International Music Summit in Ibiza. 12 months ago Jason Bentley from KCRW gave a track I made with my engineer Big Dean Hurley to Ben Turner and Rob da Bank of Sunday Best Recordings, and we return this year to chat about the full-length album we have just completed. I look forward to chatting with them and everyone else in attendance on May 26th live from my own studio in Los Angeles. We’ll talk about the music and how it came to be and exist. We had such a blast making it and I am honored to be a part of the International Music Summit.”

IMS partner Ben Turner states:

      “This is a true honour. It was at the IMS 12 months ago that I heard ‘Good Day Today’ for the first time, sat in the hills of Santa Agnes in Ibiza, trying to recover from the summit! I played this record and I was astonished it was produced by my favourite film director of alltime. Lynch didn’t make it for the dancefloors – he just made the music he felt inspired to make. One year on, its an incredible moment to have him beamed into the Ibiza delegation at the IMS so everybody can hear his musical story, his vision, and his future plans in music…”

David Lynch is one of the most revered and unique film directors on the planet and his work is mysterious and ALWAYS musical. Lynch has collaborated with the likes of Danger Mouse, Sparklehorse, Duran Duran and Interpol, but in 2011 it was his electronic single ‘Good Day Today’ which turned heads, subsequently named NME single of the week.

As with all the daytime conference events, this will be held exclusively live for the IMS delegates, although the IMS will be releasing sections of the interview online. IMS has been called “the TED of electronic music conferences”, and is a three-day gathering of leading professionals in the electronic music space from all over the world.

Please look out for a further announcement later this week to confirm the full running order for the daytime events at the Gran Hotel. For more information on buying tickets and the IMS Grand Finale Festival at Dalt Vila, please go to

The Session will take place on Thursday May 26 at the Ibiza Gran hotel and will then be remixed overnight for the following day by underground house heroes and Shake It! promoters Layo & Bushwacka!

In the old days, conferences used to have anthems! IMS partnered with Burn Studios showcase how leading producers and remixers work. Both Sasha and then Layo & Bushwacka! will deconstruct their work and show how they work in the studio.
