Hot Since 82 shiver timbers, DJs live from a pirate ship [Watch]Hot Since 82 Action Shot 2

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 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.

At least that runs true in Calvin Harris‘ recent announcement that he’ll be taking over Ibiza’s most esteemed clubbing destination, Pacha Ibiza, for three nights this summer. 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.

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.”
