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.

  4. THE UK’s BIGGEST INDIE NIGHT CONFIRMED FOR SANKEYS IBIZA

 

Ibiza, Friday 4th June 2012 (FIX Ibiza).- YUP, you heard right. The UK’s biggest Indie clubnight has confirmed its summer residency at Sankeys Ibiza in Platja den Bossa.

Although no strangers to the island, having first brought the Indie brand to Ibiza Rocks in 2009, this season in 2012 in Ibiza sees Propaganda take up their first island residency, firmly installing themselves for ten weeks in Playa den Bossa’s latest success story- Sankeys Ibiza, and cranking up the Indie Machine for their first event on Sunday 8th July right through to 9th September.

Having well and truly staked their claim on the UK club scene and having pioneered the concept of rockstar as DJ to the nation over the last years, the Indie brand now has a presence in twenty-two cities around Britain with some 25,0000 clubbers getting their indie on, up and down the country, on a weekly basis. That’s not to mention their clubnights in Ireland and Australia…

And now,it’s Spain’s turn. Or rather, Ibiza’s turn. The past few years on the White Island have seen a myriad of musical changes take place, and- thank God- it’s no longer all about electronica. Live music, rock music, Indie music, any music; for the times they are a changin’ – and very welcome changes they are, too…

These changes are something that Propaganda’s founder/Resident DJ Dan knows plenty about,  his winning formula to bring the rockstar off the stage and behind the decks putting a whole new slant on the word ‘live’. Propaganda’s line ups are already much applauded for their contemporary Indie musicians but also for the nation’s rising stars of Radio 1, not to mention the World of TV & Culture, presenting each of them in another facet, that of DJ.

This summer  then, the Propaganda Team will be bringing a host of bands and DJs over to the White Isle for a summer of upfront tunes and indie classics, bringing a stellar cast to Ibiza every Sunday night.  From Carl Barat to Snow Patrol, The Enemy to Gavin & Stacey’s Mat Horne, Radio 1’s Greg James and Huw Stephens, all these and more will be stepping up at Sankeys this summer and helping to really change that tune.

As for Dan himself, amongst his many other merits, of which there are many, he has toured as aftershow DJ for Oasis, has played in venues including Wembley Stadium and Cardiff Millenium Stadium, at events such as the Brit Awards and in the presence of artists including Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lilt Allen, Courtney Love, Muse, The Killers, Arctic Monkeys, Aerosmith and at festivals such as Reading, V Festival, Oxegen, Bestival, Snowbombing and The Big Chill.

On his brand’s upcoming ten week Ibeefa season, Dan the Man had this to say, “I am really excited to be taking Propaganda to Ibiza weekly for the first time, not only are we bringing our indie club phenomenon to the Island but we’re also bringing our concept of affordable clubbing to the Island with a big guest DJ each week including Radio 1’s Greg James and Snow Patrol.  I’ll also be DJing at a lot of the nights myself and I can not wait to get back to Ibiza as I’ve always loved it”.

Ibiza loves you too, Dan… And as of right now, it loves Propaganda even more…with club entry at only €15, complete with drinks prices at €7 spirit & mixer and €7 beer, as Dan says, that’s “an exceptional night out at an affordable price which is so important to people at the moment”.

Now, that’s what I’d call PROPAGANDA
