A link in Spanish, por favor?Just remembered an old interview with Cesar de Melero and had to go to the McArchives to find it...
* In the 80s and 90s Ibiza was created by people from Ibiza. Some saw that it was beautiful and wanted part of the cake. The promoters got in and the night of Ibiza was spoiled. Before people would go out at night and listen the music at Ku, they weren't going to listen to a specific DJ.
* It also bothers me that Ibiza is associated only with "party, party, party" and with something dirty. When I first came it was a very esoteric, spiritual and telluric place. Arriving to Ibiza and getting into a club is to slap you. I don't know, go to Dalt Vila, discover its architecture and history.
* [answering to the fact that some club owners defend that tourists continue coming to the island thanks to them] I would tell them to set up their clubs somewhere else, we would set up something more pretty here.
* In summer there's confusion about what is music from Ibiza because the promoters and DJs play their stuff. Is this music from Ibiza? I believe that the music from Ibiza is created by the ibicencos, those born or those who reside here.
*This star DJ that they've invented and that comes in a private jet... stop busting my balls.
*etc, etc... the whole interview is juicy but I don't have time for more translations!

I was talking to Cesar de Melero a while back, who lives near me - I suggested getting involved on here but sounded like he keeps a distance from the IBZ scene these days.If I see this : Was a long bad way from that was Ibiza was to this. Ok , money mattered at Ku or somewhere but they didnt touch the spirit.
Found it at Heart sometimes , too. Sometimes also at Solomun or Dixon. Nice evenings , sure. But the spirit is at pikes or malanga as you say.I was talking to Cesar de Melero a while back, who lives near me - I suggested getting involved on here but sounded like he keeps a distance from the IBZ scene these days.
Pikes still has it (on the right night!) Also Malanga - top tunes, local crowd, real characters. I think people were telling me Malanga is the 'new Aura' as a regular hangout. the spirit is still there (in pockets..)
Got it in the mail today. Glad that I ordered when i did (says sold out).
Repressed with all proceeds going towards tackling the Oz bushfires at present
