(FIX/IBIZA/23 JULY2013):  On an island saturated somewhat by sameness, Anthony ANTZ Bryans is a prime player in helping keep the authentic wheels of Balearia turning all over Ibiza, a DJ of such high standing that you may not even have heard of him. This is the man who, in the space of a fortnight, has generated national UK press headlines for getting Prince Harry, Kate Moss and the British Prime MinisterDavid Cameron to throw shapes on the dancefloor, who has been name-checked in the Sunday Times as a key reference in the social calendar of every Sloane Raver, who played a stonking set at the Rolling Stones after-party at Glastonbury and a man who, most of all, is happiest hiding out in his Ibiza abode, making music and loving life.

As one of the instigators of the original house music scene, back in the day, beside the likes of Danny Rampling and Nicky Holloway, Bryans already proved his worth a long time ago. These days, in Ibiza, his reputation as a proper party-starter stands strong. We highly recommend you add one or more of the following happenings to your Ibiza itinerary:

 FLAG THE DATES

ANTZ @ SACCA … EVERY THURSDAY NIGHT, OPENING PARTY 25th JULY

 SACCA_AntzPromo

Antz has long since been associated with the venue formerly known as Aura, now SACCA, having held his very successful DJ residency there every Friday since 2005. Now under new management, Antz’ reign continues on the Sant Joan Mile every Thursday through summer, with a number of guest DJS popping in along the way just to add to the melee…

ANTZ & FRIENDS ‘PLAY IT BY EAR’ AT IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE @ PIKES, EVERY SUNDAY

SUNDAY ROAST 2013.06.30 EX

Three years in and Antz is still going strong at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel, turning every Sunday into a reason to be cheerful with his ‘Play it By Ear’ parties proving the perfect complement to the hotel’s Sunday Roast. With guest DJs including the best of the best in local talent plus a few very special surprise sets along the way.

SUNDAY 28th  July : East Coast to East End, Antz’ Guest DJs are Arthur Baker and Patsy Palmer!!!

********

IN OTHER NEWS, and as per last year, Antz’ formed part of the hand-picked line up of DJs chosen to play at legendary DJ Carl Cox’s recent birthday celebration at Sands Ibiza. Bit of an honour, no matter what way you look at it, more so when we tell you that Antz is also confirmed for Cox’s annual September gathering, also at Sands. The big man summed it up beautifully: “Antz knows his music, works the crowd, plays for the occasion. There is something to be said for us older guys!”

Being the private party DJ of choice both on the island and back on his native turf in the U.K, Antz is continuously booked to play at an infinite number of high society and private parties summer and winter alike, the half of which are so hush-hush we don’t even tell you about them!

 But aside from his constant gigging, Bryans has spent the past six months barricaded in his studio, working side by side with respected DJ/producer Anthony Gorry (recently landed from producing the latest No Doubt comeback album). The duo, collectively known as Drop Jackson, are currently putting the finishing touches to their joint EP and amongst other tracks, their remix of the Pet Shop Boys‘Vocal’, has already been approved by the PSB and is due to be unleashed in the Ibiza clubs before summer is out.

Lastly, an update on Antz’s continuous charity work. Ever the philanthropist, most recently, Antz massively stepped up at the 1st Ibiza Charity Polo Cup, as linker and headline DJ at the event, held in June. Organisers Ibiza Delivers handed over a very commendable 8,000€ to the AECC (Spanish Cancer Assoc, Ibiza & Formentera Branch), proceeds of the first such event at the Ibiza Polo Club . A great result for all involved in the event.

FREDDIES_ROCKS_IBIZA2013

Coming up on 1st September, and Antz also stars on the line up at Freddie Rocks Ibiza, an annual event held in aid of The Mercury Phoenix Trust, an organization set up by the remaining members of supergroup Queen, after the passing of the band’s frontman, Freddie Mercury, and raising funds for HIV + AIDS patients. This is the third year that Ibiza Rocks House has hosted this particular charity event, a cause close to their own hearts, Freddie Mercury having played such an important role in Pikes’ history.

As for this week though, we’d like to speculate that our mysterious Man of Music may well be slipping through a back door at St.Mary’s Hospital, summoned by Queenie herself to set the occasion of the Royal Baby Arrival to some sweet, sweet music. For when it comes to Antz these days, nothing, and we mean, nothing would surprise us…

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.
