An album you love driving around Ibiza listening to…

Pig&Dan – Destination Unkown Yes I know its on my label but I was on holiday in Ibiza last year for 10 days and had this on repeat just before we released it. Such a perfect chilled album for those long summer days.

The Grid – Floatation


Away from the club…the perfect 24 hours in Ibiza would be…

Stinky Tofu in Shanghai. It’s a delicacy over there but I was not feeling at all, It lived up to its name for sure.

His passion for what he does is incredible.
