Summer is almost over, so it’s time to post the mix I made earlier this year for my dear friends on Ibiza who gave me a place to stay when I needed some time out. It’s a lazy poolside mix, a journey in sound inspired by the musical heritage of the magic white island and the beauty of the villas owned by my friends at Harissa.
Thousands of artists have been visiting Ibiza (or have been living there) for many decades. It was impossible to capture all these influences, so I just went with the flow and created a mishmash of styles from different era’s and cultures. The mix is heavily seventies influenced, has a luxurious hippie vibe and features artists like Paco de Lucía, Joni Mitchell, Tinariwen, Róisín Murphy, Niña Pastori and The Velvet Underground’s Nico who loved the island and eventually passed away on Ibiza after a tragic accident. The mix ends with a cover of a Duran Duran song, a band that still lives on the island.
