Hey Dorian, the Ibiza 2014 season is just kicking off, there must be a real buzz on the island. How much time will you be spending over there this summer?
As it looks at the moment I will be there mid to end of june after Sonar Festival and then again for the closing parties. Might be that I come for a few days in august as well but this is not sure yet.
Cocoon is 15 this year. A fully-fledged teenager! How long have you been associated with the label?
I have playing for Cocoon in Ibiza since 2005 now. As for the agency I joined Cocoon booking four years ago but I have been booked by them many times before even being a part of the agency.
What does it mean to the Cocoon family to be celebrating 15 years of making music?
I think that last year was a turning point in Ibiza. Too much parties, too much competition. For me it feels better this year and when I look at the line up of Cocoon I think that it went back to the original thought of joining forces to present a certain idea of clubbing and also a certain quality of music. Some New artists on board, despite all the gossip Ricardo will be playing, Luciano is back on board filling another gap so actually I think that it will be a great season for all of us and I am very happy to be part of it and especially to be playing for the closing party for the fist time since 9 years that I am playing in Ibiza.
Which tracks are going to be making that Amnesia dance floor go crazy this season?
hmmmm… the hit forecast… 🙂
Really don’t have a clue yet but I heard some rumors that there is an edit of Adamski’s Killer and I think that the chances are high of hearing it on the Amnesia terrace this year. So stay tuned !
Do you have any lesser-known Ibiza tips?
Lesser known Ibiza tips ? As for parties there will be some events done by Next Wave at Sankeys so definitely watch out for these parties. As for food – the fish shack in Talamanca close to Pacha Cafe or Balafia in San Joan if you are up for some great chicken or meat, but both them are not really secret anymore. As for beaches I can recommend a day in Formentera. Either rent a boat with some friends or go by ferry but some of the beaches there are really stunning.
And finally, what would you do as a techno kitten for the day?
Don’t drink and drive ! Take care, put on some sunblock and watch out for jellyfish….
Hehe good advice. Cheers Dorian…see you on the dancefloor!
