(FIX/Ibiza/31 JULY 2013): For those still wrapping their heads round the gigantic smorgasbord of party options in Ibiza this summer, it’s always good to have a nudge in the right direction from an old veteran, so what better time to introduce you to the Balearic based record label, Seamless Recordings, whose third event of the season takes place this Friday 2 August from 8.30PM at one of the island’s most emblematic hotels- Hotel Es Vive.

Following on from two very successful events so far this summer, this third gathering at Es Vive, it’s fair to say, is where the boys behind the label gracefully pass the gauntlet/headphones to the girls, with this, the launch of Seamless Recordings’ latest compilation album, ‘Venus in Motion- Somebody’s Heaven’ as the highlight of the event.
With that passing of power in mind, it makes perfect sense then that headlining this Friday’s event is Venus In Motion herself- the alter ego of Angel Johnson, a renowned House music DJ who began her career way back in 1991. A veteran of her trade and a pioneer in helping smash the stereotype of what was once considered a uniquely male vocation. No better woman for the job…


As well as Angel’s love of House, she has always been passionate about the more down tempo, groovy, after hours music that resides comfortably – or sometimes uncomfortably – under the Chill Out umbrella.  Angel had always written, produced, collaborated and hung out in studios but it’s artists like Massive Attack, Nightmares On Wax, Everything But The Girl etc… that first inspired her to want to write her own album – laying down the many songs that had formed in her head over the years.  In 2005 Angel set up her own studio, set her mind to the task  and Venus In Motion was born.

All the key ingredients and some essential factors for the fresh vibe behind Venus In Motion’s debut album, Walking in Limbo, released in 2007.  It was signed to Spain’s largest independent record label, Blanco y Negro, it won hearts and minds and earned early admiration from some of Ibiza’s leading names behind the music and DJ sets you so often experience during the white Isle’s famed, magical sunsets. The album also features one of the only covers to gain family support from the estate of Bob Marley – for This Woman, a stunning interpretation of No Woman No Cry.

The new album Somebody’s Heaven, follows suit with beautifully crafted songs, quality production and that inimitable injection of sweet melancholy.  The music itself is an eclectic mix inspired by jazz, soul, folk and dub. It embodies both an electronic and an organic vibe. The tracks distinctively weave together the sounds from long term collaborators like Chris Bucknall on keyboards, Tony Dallas on guitar and Karl Bingham on bass… sweetly elevated by the awesome vocal talents of Cherry Mars, Siobhan Lynch, Naomi Moss and Jack Kenworthy. Venus In Motion can frequently be heard at the worlds coolest lounge bars and sunset strip cafes, and regularly play-listed on Radio Stations like Ibiza Sonica Radio helping Venus in Motion to reach an even wider international audience.


Joining her in the Es Vive booth, two more female professionals of the house scene since, like, ever. Seamless Recordings welcomes back, with very open arms, Ms. Abigail Bailey (Seamless artist and the lady responsible for taking the roof off Hotel Es Vive’s Deco Bar at the Seamless Hotel Es Vive Album launch back in June) and long term island resident DJ, Clara de Costa, a woman who hardly needs an introduction round these parts, pioneer and long term resident DJ at Es Paradis, radio host and much sought after DJ- this lady forms part of the island’s musical heritage. Without a shadow of a doubt, this is a line up that will do Seamless proud.

But, of course, as they do, the boys also want a go and so, from midnight, it’s a quick shimmy to the hotel’s Experience Bar, where Seamless Label Manager Graham Sahara will be joined by another Seamless Recordings collaborator- bring him on, Mr Tom Crane, a man who’s proved his musical worth and then some in the short time since he decided to make Ibiza his home. Between them, these two are responsible for putting together the recently launched Hotel Es Vive Album, and doing a bloody good job of it too…it’s safe to assume they’ll cause an appropriate stir in the Experience Bar…

Meanwhile, back to us ladies, and as well as the complementary cava and the 100 Venus in Motion CD giveaway on the night, Hotel Es Vive are offering a 10% discount on their Spa treatments and membership packages, applicable on the evening of the event (See Reception for more details). And important to note- this offer also applies to the men- metro, hetro or homo- everybody needs a day at the spa once in a while… and if you’re too macho for that carry on, treat your lady to a Spa Day instead..God knows she deserves it…


All in all, then, and this is shaping up to be a do for those who know how to do the do…
Stylish socializing within the elegant surroundings of the Hotel Es Vive.
Seamless- Just the way we like it.
