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’.
