IBIZA Q&A: MARTIN SOLVEIG

Martin Solveig is a DJ with a longstanding affinity with the island of Ibiza. Something of a national treasure in his homeland of France, Solveig is also an esteemed producer and a man who has clocked up an impressive number of crossover house anthems in his time.

SNATCH RECORDS TURNS FIVE!

Stefano Miele has been a successful producer since the turn of the Millennium, starting off producing in his native Italy under his own name until he adopted the moniker Madox to produce funky, quirky breakbeat music. He released on Italian label Mantra and UK labels Finger Lickin' and Westway before label politics with Mantra and disillusionment with the breakbeat scene led to him wanting to take a sidestep.

IBIZA Q&A: DOORLY

Yorkshire native Doorly has been a prominent member of the electronic music scene for some time now. An island regular thanks to his duties at Ibiza Rocks, he’s helped oversee a period where the party has gone from up-and-coming clubbing brand to a major player on the White Isle. 

S'EXPRESS: GAME CHANGER

Mark Moore grew up in London and got into music at a young age. After his mother, who uprooted from South Korea after the Korean War, divorced his father, he spent some time in care before becoming a punk rocker.

He started collecting records, fell in with the Blitz crowd — the iconic New Romantic club run by Rusty Egan and the late Steve Strange — and then started DJing himself in 1983 at the Mud Club, run by notorious club-land entrepreneur Philip Salon, in Leicester Square.

IBIZA Q&A: HANNAH WANTS

Hannah Wants’ rise over the past few years has been nothing short of meteoric. Having cut her teeth on the infamously hard-to-crack San An circuit, the Birmingham native followed up her auspicious start with a string of competition wins which ultimately propelled her into the limelight. Hannah has hardly had a minute to look back since — so much so that she now has her own show on BBC Radio 1 and a burgeoning DJ career.

PREMIERE: CASSIO KOHL ‘LET IT BE ME’

In the lead up to his new release ‘Let It Be Me’ out via Futureboogie on 24th July, we sat down with Cassio Kohl to find out his top five sunset jams.

SEVEN DAVIS JR: OUT OF THIS WORLD

There's nothing ordinary about Seven Davis Jr. Unlike the balding DJs you sometimes read about in these pages (he doesn't even DJ), he's not only satisfied by making people dance. Born in Texas via San Fran via Cali, he's a self-confessed nomad currently living in London and his approach to music is like nobody else's.

MATRIXXMAN: THE FUTURE IS NOW

On a brisk spring San Franciscan afternoon, clouds move lazily across the sky with sunshine piercing through as notable techno talent Matrixxman, real name Charles M. Duff, sits in a park diving deep into discussion about his latest album and explaining his immense passion for futurism and the impending singularity.

JUPITER: JUST DESERTS

In the colourful and slightly surreal video for the maddeningly catchy single ‘Do It’, Amelie de Bosredon and Quarles Baseden, the two Parisians who comprise unabashedly quirky disco-pop duo Jupiter play the parts of lovers who are trapped in the domestic mundanity of everyday life.

To escape it, they invent increasingly bizarre situations in their heads, before mutually deciding to end the tedium by packing their brightly-coloured retro bags and setting off to see the world, hand-in-hand.

5 RECORDS THAT D'JULZ HAS IN HIS BAG

Ask any island veteran and they’ll practically all tell you the same thing: Ibiza was at its peak around the turn of the millennium. Whereas Manumission and Space tended to grab most of the headlines back then, over by the airport another new club was slowly beginning to make a name for itself.
