iPad Magazine exclusive: Jon Sa Trinxa, Born Balearic

Jon Sa Trinxa, Born Balearic

A childhood surrounded by jazz, Beatlemania and pop programs, a youth spent experimenting with reel-to-reel players and time spent immersing himself in London’s diverse record stores and rave culture, it seems iconic Balearic DJ Jon Sa Trinxa was always destined for Ibiza…

You always had a love of music… but what led you onto the path of being a professional DJ? It was because I didn’t want a ‘proper’ job! Like most artists, musicians and creative people I guess, I didn’t want to choose a profession.

Did you ever have a ‘proper’ job? I got the sack from quite a few! I was a photographer for a while, but I saw it as a way to get out of my hometown. I realised early on that there was a big wide world out there, and I wanted to see it. You have a camera and suitcase, you travel… then it became records and suitcase!

iPad Magazine exclusive: The Heritage Project

The Heritage Project

The Heritage Project is a family affair, spanning two generations of DJs and a multitude of musical genres. Meet father and son duo Alfredo and Jaime Fiorito – the former, an ex-journalist from Argentina who fell into DJing and was dubbed ‘the godfather of the Balearic beat’ and the latter, born and bred in Ibiza, growing up as the famous nightclub scene exploded around him.

Alfredo takes us back to where it all began – the year was 1976 and he was arriving via boat to the port of Ibiza, escaping the political repression in his homeland and seeking a new beginning. “I wasn’t expecting much from Ibiza to tell you the truth,” he admits. “I didn’t know much about it. But from the moment I stepped foot on the port, I discovered the hippy atmosphere, felt a lot of compassion and real freedom. I loved it.”

iPad Magazine exclusive: Nightmares on Wax – The 25-year journey to N.O.W.

Nightmares on Wax

George Evelyn, aka DJ E.A.S.E. of Nightmares on Wax has come a long way since his days of sitting outside youth clubs in Leeds while the reggae sound systems inside were making the windows shake! Ultimately leading him to reside permanently in Ibiza, his 25-year musical journey is being celebrated in 2014 with a best of compilation and an international tour, both called N.O.W. Is The Time. Because it is…

On discovering a true connection to music…
It happened in 1977, when I was seven years old. In my neighbourhood there were a few reggae sound systems and some older guys were building speaker boxes across from my school. They had this thing called an Octipad, an electric drum machine that made all these sound effects and I was just blown away. At the same time, I remember seeing an album by an artist called Scientist that had cartoons on the sleeve, and I was attracted to that as well…

iPad Magazine exclusive: Carl Cox: “There’s nowhere else like Ibiza”

Carl Cox

With the closing party for Carl Cox‘s 13th season at Space looming, the legendary techno DJ – who first came to Ibiza in 1984 and has returned every year since – talks about his relationship with the island and the exciting 2014 season…

30 years is more than half your life! What keeps you coming back? 
”There’s nowhere else like it. I’ve been everywhere in the world and Ibiza has a really big heart and spirit. It’s a blessing to be able to go to these clubs and also feel so connected with the island – I don’t feel that in Tenerife, Magaluf or anywhere else. Ibiza is the only place.”

iPad Magazine exclusive: We Love… Stripped!

We Love Space Sundays

We Love… Sundays at Space bring daytime clubbing back to Space this summer…

The history of Ibiza’s most iconic Sunday session has been told a thousand times. But just in case you missed it, here’s an abridged version – as a very happy punter left Space Ibiza in 1999 after a marathon rave, promoter Darren Hughes heard them declare, ‘We love Sundays at Space! But what do we do now?’ Cue the light bulb over the head moment (although in Darren’s case, it was probably more like a laser pen hitting a disco ball) and a new era in Ibiza clubbing was born.
