Beats & Eats with Alisha
ALISHA makes an impressive debut outing on Hot Creations with ‘Changes’, backed by a remix from Chicago house legend Mike Dunn. A bubbling name within the UK house landscape for several years, it’s fair to say that 2022 was the year that ALISHA truly emerged as a surging name of note, dropping stand-out material via Eastenderz and making appearances at Warehouse Project, Shelter, INPUT and Amnesia for Jamie Jones’ famed Paradise events. Taking things up a level as she gets set for an even bigger twelve months, her first release of 2023 comes on Jones and Lee Foss’ globally renowned Hot Creations with her latest single ‘Changes’ – accompanied by a classy remix from ever-excellent house music icon Mike Dunn. A perfect time to find out what she likes in the kitchen…

Tapas is lovely go there often when I’m there. Skinny Kitchen for breakfast I absolutely love. And relish on the bay is nice too.

No better place than Café Mambo of course!
A record that always reminds you of Ibiza
There’s honestly way too many to choose from. There’s not one in specific its more the parties and the music on the sound system for me. I feel like everything sounds even better there!
Your favourite Ibiza dish
Haha, Bread and Aoli as more of snack but the amount you eat of it might as well be a full meal! And all the tapas dishes go down a treat with me.
The perfect 24 hours in Ibiza would be…
Beach Star Hotel for a day of sunbathing by the pool. Frozen cocktails all day of course! Mambo for sunset, Tapas for dinner & drinks, superclub for your favourite party until the early hours, straight to the airport for a burger king and flight home.
