VAMP ROCKS HALLOWEEN!

IR House at Pikes master logo 20cm def

…a night of scary surprises, horrible hellbabies and freaky fun…

Thursday 31 October from 9pm

‘Slip out from the shadows, you creatures of the Ibiza night,
Halloween is creeping up and it’s not a pretty sight,
Ghosts and Ghouls, Spooks and Sprites,
Blood and Gore when this Vamp bites…’

After last year’s scarily successful party of the same time, Halloween ‘wildcard’, VAMP is back in black this Thursday 31st October for a night of toe-tingling, blood-curdling madness up at Ibiza’s favourite haunted house on the hill, the 400 year old finca that is Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel.

VAMP-HALLOWEEN-POSTER

As per last year, organisers of the Halloween extravaganza Jillian Canney (FIX Ibiza) and Leanne Chilton (Ibiza Rocks) are pulling out the stops, diving head first into their cast iron cauldron of morbid mischief and saucy spells, their ultimate goal to trick and treat Ibiza’s naughtiest nocturnal creatures to a Halloween they may never forget.

Providing the spooky soundtrack throughout the night, DJs BONES, STRAY KITTEN, DAVID PHILLIPS, MISS CHADDERS and STEF SWINGLER are the demons in charge of the dancefloor.  Local duo SERENADE will also be creeping out of the shadows for a live (as opposed to undead) performance very much based on the event’s central theme of Halloween. All of the above combined and plenty of opportunity to bust one’s monster moves on the dancefloor.

Amongst other scary surprises being concocted for the party, beware of the Bloody Bathtub, where guests are invited to scream, shriek and even sing the night away in the SCAREOKE competition. Prize for the best crooner…

VAMP2012_JILL

Talking of prizes, Head Vamps Jill and Leanne will also be dishing out a few of those along the course of the evening for the best Halloween costumes, fancy dress pretty much obligatory for this particular party. Think vampires, werewolves, witches, faeries, demons, devils, spirits, shapeshifters, ghouls, ghosts, zombies, monsters, mummies, and mynaeds but don’t be scared, any other variety of spooky/inventive/topical/comedy fancy dress get up is welcome to join in the manky mix.

Keeping up the Halloween spirit, literally, local spiritualist and medium Lisa Chadderton (Garden of Light) will be conducting a series of one-on-one psychic readings throughout the evening. A limited number of time slots are available for booking and reservations are recommended.

18500_10151285179856535_1042068417_n

In charge of lighting and special effects in and around the hotel and its grounds, island experts, Aladdin Lights are back on board to help turn this Halloween into a veritable Nightmare on Pike St. Man behind that particular operation, Simon Hall promises an assortment of tricks and treats to make you turn in your grave.

As far as fodder goes, organisers have another bonus lined up for their gory guests with local catering company, Cook Ibiza stepping up to provide a Halloween BBQ with a difference at an additional cost of 20€ per head. With a menu very much in keeping with the theme, the Cook Ibiza team will be serving up a feast fit for the most bloodthirsty of critters from 9pm-11pm, with a selection of the finest cuts of meat, all sourced from local suppliers and accompanied by a selection of salads and other yummy Halloween treats. Advance booking is recommended.  http://www.grubclub.com/Cook-Ibiza

 530704_10151285227981535_2094719693_n

As a final point to note, and due to public demand, last year’s Star of the Halloween Show, The Gnarly Witch will also make a return visit to Pikes for Halloween, bringing with her a new addition to the proceedings, the HellBaby, offspring of the Gnarly one and spawned by Satan himself. Devilled Eggs, if you will…

All that, plus a whole lot more blood, guts and gore; a monster mash from 9pm till the last banshee wails.

Tickets are now on sale at 10€ and prior purchase is recommended for guaranteed entry. Price includes a trick or treat, a witch’s sup and a bloody good night out.

VAMP 

THURSDAY 31ST OCTOBER FROM 9PM

IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE AT PIKES HOTEL

TICKETS 10€ (ADVANCE PURCHASE RECOMMENDED)

Still not scared enough? With the Ibiza family spirit in mind, we also suggest a quick stop off at Bar Grial this Halloween for a bit of Colin Peters before heading to the Boutique Hostal Salinas from 5am where the Halloween celebrations continue till God Knows What Time…

IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE/PIKES HOTEL presenta ‘JAZZ LEGENDS’ por BO WOODY WINTER

pikes

VERNISSAGE MARTES 30 JULIO, 20,00h

EL ARTISTA REVELA EN EXCLUSIVA SU HOMENAJE DE 10 METROS A LA MÚSICA JAZZ

La exposición permanecerá hasta el 08 de agosto

 

(FIX/Ibiza 29 Julio 2013): Ibiza Rocks House en Pikes Hotel, sin duda reconocido como el Hotel de rock n roll por excelencia en esta isla de música, es el sitio donde desde sus comienzos hace 33 largos años, los músicos mas reconocidos se han alojado para relajar y/o seguir la fiesta con los más marchosos.

Pero dejemos de lado de momento el Rock n Roll. Nuestros oídos se aguzaron y notamos en las manos un hormigueo al ritmo de jazz cuando nos enteramos de lo último que tendrá lugar en Ibiza Rocks House este Martes 30 julio- la “vernissage” de ‘LEYENDAS DE JAZZ’, exposición del célebre artista holandés, BO WOODY WINTER. Una colección de 18 piezas representando la historia del jazz, que permanecerá expuesta la Suite de Freddie Mercury en el Pikes hotel hasta el día 8 de Agosto. Veréis, a veces el Ibiza Rocks rueda por un camino diferente y baila al ritmo de una melodía diferente…

La exposición, por primera vez en España, es la culminación de varios años de pintar sin parar. Años bañados en la sangre, el sudor y las lágrimas de Woody Winter. Además de los 16 retratos individuales, se verá su última obra maestra, un homenaje de 10 metros de largo a la música jazz y a sus héroes.

 

526446_424606600914961_66614430_n

Entre ellos: Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Nina Simone, Wes Montgomery, Art Blakey, Freddie Hubbard, Dizzy Gillespie, Chet Baker, Eric Dolphy, Esperanza Spalding, James Spaulding son algunos de los músicos retratados en JAZZ LEGENDS. Todos leyendas en sí, la música Jazz representada por los mejores.

Esta última exposición de Bo Woody Winter viene pisando los talones de su reciente exhibición en el Festival de Jazz del Mar del Norte, considerado el mayor festival de jazz internacional en el mundo. Allí, en 2011, Bo Woody Winter conoció a sus héroes-Marcus Miller y Toots Thielemans. Ambos ahora dueños de sus retratos realizados por Bo. Director del Art Show del Festival de Jazz del Mar del Norte, Wim van Zon también juega un papel importante en los exposiciones de Woody Winter en Ibiza y también presentará una introducción visual a las obras de Bo este mismo martes.

Aparte de su pasión inicial, el adicto de jazz, Winter también tiene una trayectoria profundamente arraigada en la escena de la música de baile de Holanda.Hace poco completó una segunda colección de pinturas bajo el nombre de DJ LEGENDS cuya revelación a un público exigente ya se ha confirmado para octubre 11 en Agroturismo Atzaró, Sant Joan. Como introducción a este segundo evento en octobre, este martes también incluirá la presentación de un retrato de la mano de la artista a las manos del DJ internacional Sarah Main.

998052_572250806150539_1992473975_n

Además de una introducción al artista y la presentación orgullosa de su gigantesca pintura 10 metros de largo, Ibiza Rocks House nos invitara a cócteles a partir de las 20,00h, que se sirve con la música de la mejor jazz de la Muriel Grossman Cuarteto. Y mientras que todo lo que está pasando, Bo le realizará una pintura en vivo en la Plaza Mayor de Ibiza Rocks House de una de la innegablemente más talentoso mujeres de jazz -Nina Simone.

Para los que quieren aún más golpecitos de pies, DJ Stray Kitten y Twisted Ace se pondran sus auriculares tocando una selección de swing, jazz, blues y soul.

Por último, en una adición muy agridulce para el evento, Bo Woody Winter dedicará la exposición “Jazz Legends ‘a su padre, que muy lamentablemente perdió su batalla con el cáncer hace solo unos dias. Por lo tanto, Bo se subastará su famoso ‘traje de colores “en Ibiza Rocks House y donar las ganancias a la investigación del cáncer. Gran traje, gran gesto. DEP Sr. Winter Sr.

En definitiva, un eventito muy guay para los enterados, para los amantes de jazz y de arte,sin olvidar a los sospechosos habituales- los” party people” de Pikes ( ya sabeís quienes sois)…Así que manos “Jazz” preparaditos, Ibiza Rocks Hotel se convierte en taberna clandestina americana “speakeasy”.

It ISN”T rock n roll- but we love it!

¡NO es rock n roll, pero nos encanta!.

‘JAZZ LEGENDS’: AN ART EXHIBITION BY BO WOODY WINTER

pikes

VERNISSAGE TUES 30 JULY, 8PM

IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE @ PIKES HOTEL 

 EXCLUSIVE UNVEILING OF ARTIST’S 10M HOMAGE TO JAZZ GREATS

w/ MURIEL GROSSMAN QUARTET + DJ STRAY KITTEN

(FIX IBIZA/ 29 JULY 2013): Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel is undeniably the rock n roll hotel of choice on this, the Mediterranean island of music, a place where every musician worth his salt has laid his weary head and/or partied on with the best of them, ever since the beginning of its 33 year history. But Rock n Roll aside, our ears definitely pricked up and our jazzy hands began to tingle when we heard about the latest happening to take place up at Ibiza Rocks House thisTuesday 30 July.

See, sometimes, Ibiza Rocks rolls down a different road, dances to a different tune – and this Tuesday is a perfect example of what we mean, with the unveiling and vernissage of celebrated Dutch artist, Bo Woody Winter’s ‘JAZZ LEGENDS’ exhibition, a collection of 18 pieces depicting the History of Jazz and which will remain on show in Freddie’s Suite at the hotel until 8 August.

526446_424606600914961_66614430_n

The exhibition, being shown for the first time in Spain, is a culmination of several years of endless painting, bound together by the blood, sweat and tears of Woody Winter and apart from the 16 individual portraits includes his latest masterpiece, a 30ft long homage to jazz and Winter’s own jazz heroes.

Amongst the names- Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Nina Simone, Wes Montgomery, Art Blakey, Freddie Hubbard, Dizzy Gillespie, Chet Baker, Eric Dolphy, Esperanza Spalding, James Spaulding – all legends in their field. Jazz represented by its finest figureheads and just some of the musicians portrayed in ‘Jazz Legends’.

This latest exhibition by Bo Woody Winter comes fresh on the heels of the artist’s recent show at the North Sea Jazz Festival, considered the biggest international jazz fest in the world. It was there in 2011 that Bo Woody Winter met his heroes -Marcus Miller and Toots Thielemans- both now have Bo’s portraits of them on their walls. North Sea Jazz Festival’s Art Show Director, Wim van Zon also plays an important role in Winter’s Ibiza exhibitions and will also present a visual introduction to Bo’s work this Tuesday. After its inauguration, the ‘Jazz Legends’ series will remain in Freddie’s Suite until 8 Aug.

998052_572250806150539_1992473975_n

Aside from the jazz junkie’s obvious first love, Winter also has a deeply rooted history in Holland’s dance music scene, and has recently completed a second collection of paintings under the moniker DJ LEGENDS, already confirmed to be revealed to the discerning public on October 11 at Agroturismo Atzaro, Sant Joan. As an introduction to this second event, this Tuesday’s vernissage will also include the presentation from the artist to international DJ Sarah Main.  But more on that later…

Back to Bo on the Rocks and the plan for this Tuesday. Apart from an introduction to the artist and the proud presentation of his mammoth 10 metre long painting, Ibiza Rocks House will be pulling out the stops and putting on the Ritz with cocktails from 8pm,  served to the tune of the finest jazz from the Muriel Grossman Quartet. Whilst all that is going on, Bo will also do a live paint in the hotel’s Plaza Mayor of one of jazz’s undeniably most talented females- Nina Simone.

For those who want even more, DJ Stray Kitten will be taking up the gauntlet/headphones in Freddie’s Suite playing a selection of swing, jazz, blues and soul.

Lastly, in a very bittersweet addition to the event, Bo Woody Winter will dedicate ‘Jazz Legends’ to his father, who very sadly lost his battle with cancer only last week. Bo will therefore be auctioning his famous ‘splatter suit’ and donating the proceeds to cancer research. Great suit, great gesture.

All in all, a very cool little happening for those in the know, for those who love jazz and those that love art and of course, not forgetting, the usual suspects- the Pikes party people- you know who you are…Jazzy Hands at the ready, Ibiza Rocks House turns speakeasy.

 

It ISN’T only Rock n Roll- but we love it!

FIX IBIZA//28th October 2012//IBIZA

With the cold-blooded countdown to Halloween well and truly on, it seems word about VAMP has trickled across the island like the very blood off Bill Compton’s fangs. Get ready for a scary soiree on the Halloween Hill of Horror; aka Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel, the likes of which will have every party monster round these parts howling into their hairy hands should they not get a ticket for the eerie event.

This is hocus-pocus at its blood-curdling best- a good old-fashioned Halloween bash is the name of the game here, and it’s without a shadow of a doubt that that is exactly what organisers Jill Canney (FIX IBIZA) and Leanne Chilton (Events Manager, Ibiza Rocks House) are planning for your petrifying pleasure this Wednesday, 31st October from 10pm until the sun comes up and the vampires head back to their gloomy tombs.

And as Ibiza’s nocturnal creatures prepare their best otherworldly outfits for fright night, Canney and Chilton are said to be up to their eyeballs in spider web and pumpkins whilst cackling into their cauldrons at the thought of what petrifying tales of terror Wednesday’s Halloween party will bring forth.

From apple bobbing in the blood bath to a suck on the Gnarly Witch’s Tit, from a dip in the Trick and Treat Box to a visit to the Zombie Zone, there are plenty of spine-tingling surprises in store for even the most hardened Halloween HellRaiser.

At this stage of the scary game, confirming attendance is advised. Tickets can also be reserved and purchased in advance (contact details below)

10pm: Doors to the Haunted House creak open and the first spooks step out of the shadows…

Meanwhile, in Freddie Kruger’s Bar, the music starts sounding for those who already feel the need to throw ghastly shapes round the room…

*As Midnight strikes, get ready for the unveiling of The Gnarly Witch and all that she brings for our putrid pleasure. One quick slurp of slurp of her magic potion and party on…

12am- Sunrise: You’ll be dancing like you’re possessed by the Devil himself in Freddie (Kruger)’s Bar til first light (and possibly beyond) with the help of:

THE DARK AND DEADLY DJs

VAMPIN’ IT UP! Halloween at Ibiza Rocks House

   RAISING HELL AT THE HOUSE ON THE HILL

 

IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE SET TO HOST HORRIFIC HALLOWEEN HOOLEY ON WEDS 31ST OCTOBER , FROM 10pm

DOOR CHARGE OF 10€ INCLUDES PUMPKIN SOUP, A TRICK OR TREAT, A GOBLET OF WITCHES BREW AND A NAUGHTY NIGHT OF FREAKY FUN, SCARY STORIES, MONSTER MUSIC AND DEVILISH DANCING

DJS COLIN PETERS, STRAY KITTEN, LUIS MARTIN & MAGICAL MYSTERY GUESTS PROVIDING THE TERRORIFIC TUNES

Halloween is nearly here- and in our book, that simply screams party! So, it seems only fitting that we transform Ibiza Rocks House into a Haunted House on the Hill and fill it with our favourite boys and ghouls for a night of bloody good fun…Get your gore on for VAMP!

Here’s the cunning plan:

We’ll kick off the vamptastic plan at 10pm by inviting you to a scrummy bowl of homemade pumpkin soup to line our little zombie bellies, whilst on the big screen, expect Rocky Horror, Teen Wolf, Lost Boys, Nightmare on Elm Street and other stuff to make you shiver…

After that preliminary spooking, it’s a sup from the gnarly witch’s tit for all who dare…our special magic potion, carefully concocted by senior members of the coven, sure to get the blood flowing in all the right places. Just right for fright night frolics…

Next up, take a wander through the zombie zone, delve into the trick or treat glory hole, attempt to bob an apple from the bloodbath; just some of the spooky surprises we’re planning amongst the Halloween games.

Of course, it goes without saying that we want you to shake your old bones in Freddie (Kruger)’s Bar and so, providing the scary soundtrack, DJs Colin Peters and Stray Kitten will be joined by some magical mystery guests…

As far as dress code, it’s a no-brainer. It’s Halloween. Think vampires, werewolves, faeries, witches, ghouls, ghosts, zombies, monsters, mynaeds, shape shifters, spooks, blood, gore, guts, spiders, spells and supernaturals- you get the idea- all the stuff that Halloween is made of! But there are no limits- as long as you’ve made an effort, that’s the spirit and special spooky souvenirs will be presented to the best of the lot..

Getting In:

10€ in advance/on the door includes your pumpkin soup, your trick or treat, a goblet of witches brew and a Halloween you won’t forget in a hurry.

Places are limited so do confirm if possible…

WHAT: ‘VAMP’- a night of Halloween Hoots and Ghastly Goings on..

WHEN:  WEDS 31ST OCT, 2012 FROM 10PM

WHERE : IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE @PIKES HOTEL

BIRTHDAY BOY ANTZ PULLS A TRIPLE WHAMMY!


THIS WEEKEND 12-14th OCTOBER, ANTZ @ AURA/IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE/AMANTE

Just when you thought it was safe to put away your disco boots for another season, DJ ANTZ has a plan in store this weekend that, quite simply, can only be described as One Big Fat Birthday Blowout.

As one of the island’s most respected DJs, AntZ has done nothing if not surpassed himself this summer in Ibiza, not only with his weekly residencies at Ibiza Rocks House and Aura but also the vast number of private bookings and international gigs.

This weekend though, and there’s an extra cause for merriment as the main man celebrates one more year of his amazing life. One weekend, three chances to let it all hang out on the dancefloor to the tunes lovingly provided by the birthday boy.

Here’s the plan. First stop, Aura. Friday Night. After last weekend’s awesome End of Summer shenanigans at AURA, the doors are back open for Autumn meaning that our AntZ is back in action every Friday through October. Yay!

On to Sunday, and this is where it gets even more interesting…

First up, it’s a fond farewell for another season to Antz’s signature event at IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE at Pikes Hotel. ‘PLAY IT BY EAR’ has been as staple a part of the island’s diet as the roast dinner that’s served up at the hotel every Sunday this summer. Joining Antz this week behind the decks, PIBE Resident Jon Sa Trinxa and as a very special treat, straight in from San Agustin, proper Spancunian and DJ extraordinaire Andy Wilson(Ibiza Sonica)- a man who knows the meaning of the Balearic Beat better than most. This IS the place to be. And you have one more chance to be there…

A bit later on that day, as the sun sets on San Antonio, it’s straight off to AMANTE for the next part of the party plan, where ANTZ gets back to work alongside the likes of other great names including Groove Armada’s Tom Findlay. Mark our words, this is set to be a monumental end to another great season at Amante.

Only one more thing to say then, really and that’s ‘Happy Birthday, Antz!’

KEEPING FREDDIE’S FLAME ALIVE

 Image

The second annual Ibiza ‘Freddie for a Day’ Fundraiser for the Mercury Phoenix Trust is confirmed for Sunday 2nd September

 

Special guests confirmed include 2Mercury BJs, Mark Jones, Lottie, Andy Carroll, Colin Peters, Stray Kitten and Grayson Shipley plus a VERY SPECIAL GUEST with a special live performance from Wall of Sound’s hotly tipped next best thing, BB and upcoming band, Visitors. 

The date of the event coincides with what would have been the Queen front man’s 66th birthday.

Ibiza//FIX Ibiza//30 Aug 2012

Just when you thought you couldn’t possibly squeeze any more fun into your summer, Ibiza Rocks proves you wrong once again. Following on from the success of last year’s ‘Freddie for a Day’ charity fundraiser at Ibiza Rocks House, Mark Jones & his Wall of Sound crew are back for more fun and nonsense, all in the best possible taste, and all for a great cause- The Mercury Phoenix Trust- that wonderful legacy left to us by international music icon, Freddie Mercury, not to mention the fellow members of his supergroup- Queen.

Sunday, 2nd September is the date confirmed for the event, with the early part of the day set aside for munchin’ and a-minglin’ alongside the traditional Sunday Roast from 2pm. A spot of lunch, a dip in the hotel’s famous pool, a quick snooze and it’s time to get togs on and ‘tashed up for what is set to be yet one more magic moment in the annals of Ibiza Rocks history.

As per last year, organiser Mark Jones, Wall of Sound main man, has put together a line up that really stands out from the Ibiza crowd. As well as DJs including Lottie, Andy Carroll, Colin Peters, Stray Kitten and Grayson Shipley, get set for three headlining guest DJs SO special we are not even allowed to announce it. But hear this, you’d be mental to miss it…

And then there are the live elements of the event. Ibiza Rocks House are pleased to present an exclusive performance from UK band, Visitors, as well as, brought to us by Wall Of Sound, BB. Hotly tipped as the next best thing. BB were formed after a chance meeting at the BBC Introducing Master Class of 2011 at Abbey Road Studios. Singer Billy Wright & drummer Robert Gulston immediately bonded over a passion for pop songs, dance music and exciting live shows. After locking themselves away in a studio in their hometown of Southend, the duo honed their writing formula and emerged in 2012 with a galvanised sound and a live show that combines euphoric samples, thumping drums, explosive guitars and insanely catchy melodies. They are currently adding the final touches to their debut album.

Asked about their upcoming gig at Ibiza Rocks House and BB had this to say: “Freddie was the kind of musician you wanted to be from the first time you picked up a mic or sat down to write a song. There was something magnetic about his performances, he had thousands of people in the palm of his hand…No one has come close since. So when you get asked to go to Ibiza and pay tribute to Freddie, you go!”

Bearing in mind at all times that this is a fundraising event, party goers are asked to seriously get involved! As well as encouraging as many Freddie lookie-likees as possible on the night, organisers stressed that the easiest way to make a contribution to the cause was by purchasing your Freddie Moustache on entrance to Ibiza Rocks House, with all proceeds going directly to the Mercury Phoenix Trust.

From the depths of his dressing up box, in the search for his Freddie costume, no doubt, Mark Jones piped up that “after last years’ crazy scenes and amazing night of fun-fun-fun it seems only right to press play and pay homage to Freddie again with Ibiza Rocks House / Pikes Hotel as the incredible setting.Bringing to light the creative genius and talent of Mr. Mercury to Ibiza is a real honour..

We Will, We Will Rock You ! ”

About the Charity:

Freddie Mercury died of AIDS related causes in London on 24th November 1991. Almost immediately after, the remaining members of Queen and Jim Beach, the band’s manager, took the decision to raise money and awareness about AIDS in his memory. Together they organised the 1992 Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert for AIDS Awareness. The Mercury Phoenix Trust was founded to distribute the monies raised from this concert and it has continued to be engaged in numerous other fundraising activities.

Since 1992 the Mercury Phoenix Trust has been responsible for donating more than $15 million in the fight against AIDS making over 750 grants to charities worldwide. Applications for grants have come in from many countries around the world and collaboration has been realised with groups as far removed as the World Health Organisation to grass-root organisations run partly by voluntary workers in Uganda, Kenya, South Africa, Zambia, Nepal and India. The Trust has adapted its policy to concentrate on HIV/AIDS education and awareness in the developing world.

The legend of Pikes Hotel.

When it comes to rock n roll anecdotes, Freddie Mercury’s fame where Pikes Hotel is concerned is legendary. A regular fixture of the hotel, he was a close friend of the hotel’s original owner Tony Pike ‘back in the day’ and as the story so famously goes, Mercury celebrated his 41st birthday at the hidden hotel; a party that lasted for days and spawned many of the aforementioned anecdotes.

These days, and although the world is a less flamboyant place since the passing of the Queen vocalist, his memory lives on at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes, not least through the Freddie Suite at Ibiza Rocks House; an enormous room, the centre of hedonism and happy times during Freddie’s reign, now converted into one of the island’s nocturnal hot-spots for those in the know. Lovingly restored under the ownership and careful direction of Ibiza’s foremost live music promoters, Andy McKay and Dawn Hindle. Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes continues to celebrate Freddie’s free spirit and zest for life.

As a final point to note, with the date of the event so close to what would have been Freddie Mercury’s 66th birthday, the aim of the event is to celebrate the life and times of one of the best, whilst raising funds to help those affected by what took him from us.

Because ‘these are the days of our lives…’ Lets make it a suitable homage to the King of Queen…

ANTZ ALL OVER

I’ve said it before and I will no doubt say it again, IT IS ALL CONNECTED.

In the same week that we take on a brand new client,  a lovely, talented and much respected DJ round these parts who happens to go by the name of ANTZ, than I’m only attacked in my own house by a big family of the same. A big family of ants- mammies, daddies, babies…each one of them finding their way from wherever they came from to have a little nibble on me on their merry way.

I’m covered in ANTZ. Literally, here I sit flicking the odd one off my arm and the computer, itchin’ and scratchin’ , whilst putting together the pieces for our PR campaign on the DJ of the very same name, and listening to a great session of his recorded only last week.

How very Ibiza, she exclaimed!

Those of you that know our beloved island well will know that these kind of coincidences are common round Ibiza way, and those of you who really know the place should also therefore be already familiar with one of the island’s institutions- our very own AristoCAT Anthony Bryans. ANTZ.

A man whose stories could fill not just one, but several, books; a dude whose rollercoaster life has had him flung in all directions. A person who has looked death in the face and survived. Our Antz. Most importantly, a stalwart of Music in Ibiza. With residencies in IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE at Pikes with his weekly Sunday event ‘Play it with Ear’ his faithful Friday doos at AURA, plus his guest slots at far too many other private and posh events to mention, he’s got a LOT of fans, this boy, a big huge number of them, and maybe none bigger in status nor stature than King of the international dancefloor, heavyweight and gentleman, CARL COX.

So impressed was the Cox at Antz’ prowess that he asked him to play with him at what has become one of Ibiza’s most essential parties of the summer – Carl’s infamous party at SANDS …a delicious day of seashore and sexy sounds that pulls a crowd of unmatched movers, shakers and party people.

After same session, Carl Cox, asked to comment on his choice of guest DJ was firm in his belief;  “Antz knows his music, works the crowd, plays for the occasion. There is something to be said for us older guys”

Fair do’s- They might be no spring chickens but between the two of them and their joint experience, it’s pretty fair to say that they totally took the roof of the place.

See, that’s kinda what Antz does. His eclectic perfection –a musical A-Z in his head is what makes Antz the one that the dancing massive turn to when it comes to P.A.R.T.Y.T.I.M.E…

ANTZ (Hormigaz)

Todos aquellos que aman esta isla, la isla de Ibiza, saben que las coincidencias en este lugar tienen más de magia que de casualidad. Una sensación que se repite una y otra vez, por lo que no puedo obviarla. Justo cuando el calor empieza a apretar en casa y me siento invadida por un ejército de laboriosas hormigas llama a la puerta uno de los más respetados DJs de Ibiza. Su nombre artístico, Antz (hormiga). ¡Esto es muy Ibiza!, pienso.

Anthony Bryans es en sí un hombre con muchas páginas por rellenar, con una vida comparable a la de una montaña rusa. Llena de emociones, de adiciones y con una trayectoria professional pura y absoluta en torno a la música. Este verano, sus residencias incluyen ‘Play it with Ear’ cada domingo en el Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel y en el popular Aura de la carretera de San Juan, los viernes.

Antz tiene fans, grandes fans. Fans de la industria, fans reconocidos. Como el rey del techno, como Carl Cox. “Antz conoce su música, se trabaja a su público y pincha especialmente para cada ocasión. Es una lección para nosotros, los mayores”, admitió Cox tras la sesión de nuestro protagonista en la fiesta del DJ inaugurando la temporada de verano de su local de Platja d’en Bossa, Sands.

Compruébalo tú mismo. Si todavía no conoces la perfección musical ecléctica de Antz, en FIX Ibiza te lo ponemos fácil.
