Cristoph and CamelPhat ‘Breathe’ their long-awaited collaboration into existenceCamelphat Christoph Breathe 1

As if to the mounting majesty of one of his progressive house tracks, in the past year Newcastle’s Cristoph has blossomed into a worldwide reckoning under mentor, Eric Prydz‘s watchful eye. Both Cristoph and CamelPhat, the Grammy nominees and creators of deific dance track, “Cola,” spent the better part of the summer showing love for Prydz as supporting acts at his often sold-out Hï Ibiza performances. Now, the two supporters are taking their talents center stage for what is a natural progression of their time in close Ibizan quarters. The result: an epic dance music lovechild, “Breathe,” through Pryda Presents, fittingly enough.

“Breathe” begins under the guise of plaintive instrumentals and ethereal, desirous female vocals from resplendent dance floor songstress, Jem Cooke. The track then employs the sonic equivalent of ripping the floor from underneath the listener with its bellowing bass line and unfettered chord progressions. Like a spectral presence with the best of intentions, the track leaves listeners hard-pressed to resist reporting to the nearest dance-friendly surface once “Breathe” gets hold.

Hot Since 82 redefined what it might mean to ‘swab the deck’ during his live streamed set aboard a pirate ship in Ibiza.

The near two-hour effort transported the house music heavyweight from the Balearic clubs that so commonly provide the platforms for DJs’ live performances on the White Island, and onto the sea, where the waters plunged as deep as the beats that Hot Since 82 doled out. With the producer’s family and friends aboard the intimate vessel, it’s safe to say that no mutinies transpired.

Director of Netflix’s ‘Ibiza’ has never been to Ibiza

Director of Netflix’s ‘Ibiza’ has never been to IbizaAle Richanbach Ibiza

In an awkward interview with Mixmag, director of the new Netflix original film, Ibiza, Alex Richanbach, reveals he’s never been to the island of Ibiza. Granted, the movie is a light rom-com about three girlfriends traveling to Spain for “work.” Let’s just say the European party scene took over, and not much professionalism ensued. The protagonist, played by Gillian Jacobs, ends up falling in love with an EDM DJ, played by Richard Madden, and supposed hilarity ensues.

When Mixmag interviewer Jeremy Abbott asked Richanbach if he’s ever been to Ibiza, the director revealed he’s never even been.

“You know I hadn’t been able to go,” he told Abbott. “So I did all my research through our writer who spent a lot of time there and also Richard Madden who spent a lot of time there and I sort of watched as much as I could from a documentary stand-point and I read books and did as much as I could. But the speed of which we prepped the film I wasn’t able to get there.”

Abbott continues pushing the subject by mentioning the Spanish government’s disapproval and potential lawsuit. The movie was filmed in Croatia, which Abbott points out adds to the misrepresentation of the Ibiza brand and vibe. There were also accusations of stereotyping the island’s culture and drug use. The director’s response was to highlight a writer and actor of the film who spent time in Ibiza.

One Kiss” might be all it takes, but one night on the White Isle certainly won’t cut it.

Pacha celebrated its grand re-opening on May 4, and despite some recent confusion surrounding two go-go-dancers impersonating cops, it’s looking to be a banner year for the club.

The Fly Eye executive’s headline slots, dubbed Tuesdays On Mars, are a part of Pacha’s latest party concept, which also features Fatboy Slim, Alesso, Martin Solveig, and Oliver Heldens. Harris will be playing on August, 14, 18, and 28, marking the only three dates outside of his Vegas residency fans will be able to catch the “Nuh Ready” producer this summer.

The International Music Summit (IMS) officially kicked off in Ibiza with conference co-founder Pete Tong‘s discussion on mental health.

Tong began with an emotional speech on the tragic passing of Avicii, and spoke about how the industry can better deal with the stresses and strains of life in the music business.

In the talk, Tong spoke about how individuals in the music industry need to support each other. Speaking on the death of Avicii, he said: “we [DJs] weren’t supposed to die chasing the dream.”

Tong also touched on how the producer, who was found dead in Oman last month, quickly becoming a superstar without the proper tools for coping with the change in lifestyle that comes with a near overnight jump worldwide success.

Tong’s touching tribute to Avicii was followed by another panel, Our Duty Of Care. Christine Brown of Help Musicians UK said: “People in music are three times more likely to suffer from mental illness. That really pushed us into action.”

Ibiza authorities investigating go-go dancers impersonating police at Pacha reopening party

This post was originally published on this site

Wearing the crown as Ibiza‘s hottest nightclub proves no easy feat. Now it seems the White Isle’s clubbing crowned jewel, Pacha, could be in quite a bit of hot water.

Ibiza’s public prosecutor’s office is currently investigating a May 4 incident involving two go-go dancers impersonating policemen at Pacha’s reopening party.

Originally reported by El Mundo, two men in local police uniforms led a group of VIPs from the neighboring Pacha Hotel to the club, even managing to stop traffic along the way. When they then entered the club, the two alleged officers soon jumped onstage and ordered that the music be turned off. Fortunately, the 5,000-strong crowd started whistling and booing, and the music soon returned.

Two legitimate police officers reportedly witnessed the entire incident and reported it immediately to the local authorities and a local citizen group, EPIC, which demanded that Pacha apologized for the PR stunt.

“What happened that night concerns us,” reads a statement from local citizens group EPIC. “Usually when someone is dressed up, you notice straight away, but in this case that didn’t happen, so everyone at the party initially believed that the two young men who turned out to be go-go dancers were really policemen.”

It  continues: “It’s particularly serious given that members of the local council were present and did nothing to stop it from happening. This wasn’t just a crime; it was a shameful joke at the expense of the police, whom we should respect.”

Pacha has now responded, claiming the uniforms were not in fact official and had been made by the club’s costume department. They also said the uniforms had been used at previous events without issue, and that the uniforms didn’t include any official badges or other official paraphernalia.
