FRIDAY 11 OCTOBER 2013, 4pm-4am

at AGROTURISMO ATZARÓ

Art + Music meets Synesthesia

 

(Press Release/FIX IBIZA/ 4 OCT 2013)

As another Ibiza summer comes gracefully to a close, there is still one more party on the agenda that should not be missed. We are talking about DJ ICONS – a celebration of the history of house music through an astonishing 25 piece art exhibition presented by celebrated Dutch artist, Bo Woody Winter and confirmed to take place on Friday 11 October at the gorgeous rural hotel, Agroturismo Atzaró, in the north of the island of Ibiza.

Over the past weeks, expectations for the event have started to reach new heights, with news on the progression of the paintings embedded in neon and liquid gloss filtering through the social networks from a studio somewhere in the depths of Holland. The 25 innovative and groundbreaking art pieces aim to portray the most credible/influential DJ figures in the house music industry, at least as seen through artist Bo Woody Winter’s eyes.

Wim Van Zon, producer of the event and a leading art and music expert in the Netherlands, said the Close Up Art team was excited at the prospect of launching the exhibition on the island. “Not only will the portraits with Winter’s unique synesthesia be shown, but also new concepts that we have developed. In the exhibition the first installations with neon and Bo’s images, cast in liquid gloss, will be a stunning premiere. And the synesthesia FX software program that Tim Groote has developed will be an extension of the Icons at the party that will surprise all visitors. The whole atmosphere Bo has created will fit Ibiza beautifully.”

The Big Picture: An event touching all senses

Organised by Close Up Art -a members-only club of art aficionados that has Bo Woody Winter and Wim Van Zon, curator of the North Sea Jazz Festival Art Show, at its helm- this is an event that promises to see out the summer in a colourful explosion of spectacular art, eye-boggling 3D light FX and a line up of some of the finest names in the house music world.

But it is Bo Woody Winter’s impressive collection of portraits that form the focal point of this event, with his 20 representations of the world’s most influential DJs ranging in size from 1.40m x1m to 3.20m x1.40m, all sprawling across the Gallery and grounds of Atzaro.

There is no doubt that this collection of DJ Icons combined with the additional neon/light and special effects spectacle, catwalk show, presentation of the liquid gloss art concept plus pure house music all fusing together for a 3D SYNESTHESIA FX provided by Centre-Lights and Ginvi, a definite first for Ibiza and shaping up to be one heck of a party.

As far as the music is concerned, and bearing in mind that this event is a celebration of House Music through the years, organisers Close Up Art are delighted to confirm that, as well as Holland’s clubbing pioneer, Dimitri Kneppers, Ibiza’s original party-starter, Alfredo Fiorito is also confirmed to DJ at the event at Atzaro. Here is a man who can be credited as the catalyst of the entire Ibiza clubbing scene, since way back in ’89, when the likes of Danny Rampling, Nicky Holloway and Paul Oakenfold first stumbled across his Balearic sound in the middle of Amnesia one very fateful night.

Joining these two revered individuals, Ibiza’s own Joan Ribas, a master of his craft and a much respected DJ figure on the island, Sarah Main, long time Pacha Resident and island darling, Eli Rojas, DJ Resident at Blue Marlin and DJ Pat, a well known and respected name on the funky scene back in his homeland of Holland.

Taking his art to the catwalk, Bo Woody Winter uses the human form as a canvas, adding another element to his art and promising a living, breathing art installation like no other.

BO WOODY WINTER PRESENTS DJ ICONS IN IBIZA

CLOSE_UP_ART_LOGO

…art meets music meets dance history…

Friday October 11, 4pm-4am, at Agroturismo Atzaró

DJs include Dutch legend Dimitri, Joan Ribas + Sarah Main

 

(Press Release/FIX IBIZA/11 SEPT 2013)

Dutch artist Bo Woody Winter is no stranger to Ibiza, the semi-resident most recently having presented his Jazz Legends exhibition at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel in early August 2013. His series of jazz paintings, including the 10 x 2 m painting saw the closing of an exhibition tour that started back in 2011 at the North Sea Jazz Festival. But now, Winter is focusing on the presentation of a new series of paintings that have already been two years in the making: – DJ ICONS is the name and superstar DJs is the game. The multi-media event, confirmed for Friday October 11 at Agroturismo Atzaró, Ibiza, sees the start of Bo Woody Winter’s latest art/music fusion tour and its presentation across Europe, the USA and Asia.

Although he is already known in the jazz/art circles as a self-proclaimed Jazz Junkie, Winter has another musical side to his history, with a deeply rooted background in Holland’s rave scene since ‘back in the day’, a fact that becomes crystal clear on the viewing of his latest collection of 25 paintings of some of the biggest and most influential names in the history of dance music.

In keeping with his signature style of  ‘synesthesia’, all of the pieces in Winter’s latest series have been created through the mediums of both art and music. For Bo, the two are simply inseparable; his paintings seem to absorb the very essence of the music he listens to whilst working.  The results speak for themselves, plain to see at the Atzaró exhibition on Oct 11.

So far, so good. Meanwhile, back in Holland, Bo is cracking on with the final few portraits for inclusion in the exhibition. To date, Winter has completed 21 of the 25 portraits to be featured in the exhibition- in no particular order, Sven Väth, Luciano, Carl Cox, Frankie Knuckles, Derrick May, Marshall Jefferson, Alfredo Fiorito, Pete Tong, Dimitri, Laurent Garnier, Kevin Saunders, Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, David Guetta, Bob Sinclar, Carl Craig, Eric Morillo, Steve Aoki, Avicii, Sarah Main and Eli Rojas with just a few more names to be announced in the next days.

544884_10201948946911384_1805957109_n

Whilst the launch event of the DJ Icons Tour at Atzaró has the art as it’s main focus, it also promises a refined dining experience, a spectacular music and light show, an ‘Art Catwalk Show’, the WannaHave Fair, the World premiere of 3D Synesthesia FX, a live paint by the star of the show, Bo Woody Winter, plus a DJ line up that includes one of Holland’s finest and instigator of the Dutch Dance Scene- DJ DIMITRI, hero to many an experienced clubber. Dimitri first made an appearance at Amsterdam’s famous house temple ‘Roxy’ ion 1988, bringing his sound and style to Ibiza in 1991 and going on to become a leading international house DJ.

Joining him in providing the soundtrack to DJ Icons, island favourite, Joan Ribas is confirmed as well as Dutch DJ Pat (master of jazz and dance lounge), Eli Rojas(Blue Marlin), Sarah Main (Pacha/Ushuaia) and Stray Kitten (Ibiza Rocks House/Pikes Hotel) with more very special guest DJs announced in the next days.

Bo Woody Winter says of the event: “Back in the 90s, I was involved in the early house parties as organizer and decorator but in more recent years, my focus has been my paintings. Last year, I started painting portraits of DJs that I feel have really turned the dance scene into what it is today. This series of 25 top DJs had to be presented in a special setting and for that reason we had to choose the island of dance: Ibiza. We want to create an event with an old school house party atmosphere, allowing guests to feel they’re amongst friends, like the old days so we chose the wonderful Atzaró for this presentation of art meets old school in optima forma.”

Entrance to this event is limited to 900 people. Special VIP arrangements can be booked through Close Up Art (www.close-up-art.com) and Buitenlandsche Zaken (www.buitenlandschezaken.nl)

On the night of the event, Mari Mayans Hierbas de Ibiza will present a special DJ Icons drink and local vineyard, Ibizkus will serve their finest wines. Centre-Lights Neon will also present their commercial art neon projects.

ALL ABOUT WARHOL! URBAN IN IBIZA at OCEAN BEACH CLUB, FRI 23 AUG

 

SOW Logo K. Thomas

Urban in Ibiza: Sons of Warhol celebrates final island event on Friday 23 Aug at Ocean Beach Club with Société Perrier on board

Amongst the exhibition pieces, work from Banksy, Schoony, Pure Evil, My Dog Sighs, Snik, Fin Dac and John Tracy. Live Paint by Inkie and Dank

 

(FIX/Ibiza/Thurs 22 Aug 2013):

After what has been an intense 8 month long journey of proposals, preparations and paintings, URBAN IN IBIZA: Sons of Warhol is finally coming to the end of another island takeover with its ultimate event of 2013 taking place this Friday 23rd August at Ocean Beach Club, San Antonio. Set to be another roaring success for the organisers of the event, and in particular its creator, Paul Dizzi Saunders, this is the second time that Urban in Ibiza has presented its street art collection at the San An location and in an exciting, new collaboration, organisers are also pleased to announce that Société Perrier have also come on board the Urban in Ibiza Tour Bus (Yes, we have a Tour Bus!), in what hopes to be the start of a beautiful relationship between the two brands. And the link between the two- none other than the man who initiated the pop art movement in the 60s and remains a vital reference in the art world in the present day. He is Andy Warhol.

In 1983, Andy Warhol created over 40 works of art inspired by the iconic Perrier bottle. This year, to celebrate Perrier’s 150th anniversary, the brand has reconnected with the legendary artist through the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, presenting exclusive limited-edition Perrier packaging based on Warhol’s brilliant art, and which the Société Perrier team will present to guests at Ocean Beach Club throughout the event on Friday.

Back at the Urban in Ibiza camp and, having long since been a fan of Warhol’s work, Saunders wanted to capture some of that essence and philosophy and bring it to his own Art-Fashion-Music concept.  Saunders says, “Andy Warhol has always been someone I have admired. I feel street art emulates that Warhol quirk and ‘Sons Of Warhol’ is a term I’ve always used to describe our school of street artists. Plus, with Warhol’s birthday/anniversary falling on the same month as the Urban In Ibiza events this year, I decided it was the perfect opportunity to roll out the name”.

Taking all that into account, then, and it’s plain to see why Société Perrier and Urban in Ibiza’s joining of forces for the Ocean Beach event is a pretty apt one. The French mineral water brand will be present at the event, with surprises, giveaways and of course, plenty of sparkling water to cool the crowd down, including a number of their limited edition Andy Warhol bottles for the lucky/thirsty ones.

Societe-Perrier-Black-on-White

 

Back to the art, and the Urban in Ibiza exhibition at Ocean Beach includes works by Schoony, My Dog Sighs, Adam Bricusse, Snik, John Tracey, K Guy, Hornsleth, Ben Allen, Chad Muska, Dan Kitchener (DANK), Banksy, Elmo Hood, Zeus, Fin Dac, Henry Hate, Inkie, Pure Evil, Chapter and Milo. 

A special mention should go out to Schoony, whose works of art are constant fixtures in Urban in Ibiza exhibitions. With a background rooted in special effects and prosthetics for the film industry in a career spanning over twenty years, he took the plunge into a new career as an artist to share his passion for life cast sculpture. Schoony soon took the London art scene by storm in 2008 with his life cast sculptures ‘Boy Soldiers’, one of whom currently features in box office smash, Kick Ass 2.

For Urban in Ibiza: Sons of Warhol, he has created a life cast masterpiece, a little brother for his Boy Soldiers, Urban in Ibiza’s mascot for 2013. We present The Son of Warhol, a work of art so realistic you will need to look twice.

Also back for the Ocean Beach event, American photographer/artist and curator John Tracey will make a personal appearance presenting his SK8 Art St collection as part of the works on show. Apart from that, other most definite highlights of this event include a live paint by a vital component in Urban’s history- Bristol artist, Inkie this time joined by massively rising star, Dank, whose paintings at the Atzaro Exhibition were amongst the most popular. Mexican artist Henry Hate’s showstopper is also taking pride of place at Ocean Beach Club and keep eyes open for local artist Chapter’s contribution to the show. We could go on and on and on but the truth is, each and every work of art at Urban in Ibiza: Sons of Warhol deserves a massive shout out.  Or, you could just come see for yourself!

The crème de la crème of the international street art scene- right there, one more day/night only, at Ocean Beach Club, this Friday 23 August.

FRIDAYS ARE THE NEW THURSDAYS! ANTZ AT SACCA UPDATE!

Antz_Hirst_4Logos

ANTZ AT SACCA starting TONIGHT 16 Aug

Drinks, Dinner and Dance- in that order!

(FIX/IBIZA/16 AUG 2013)

There are certain things round here that definitely need to be changed and then, there are other things where the old adage, ‘If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it’ definitely applies. Anthony Antz Bryans’ current DJ residency at Sacca, formerly Aura, is a fine example. For that reason, as of TONIGHT, FRIDAY 16 AUG, you’ll find the island’s most respected private party DJ doing what it is he does best- kickstarting the island’s weekends in his own inimitable by way of a subtle and very harmonious shift back to Fridays from Thursdays for our man with the cans.

Long since associated with the highly reputable restaurant cum lounge bar on the Sant Joan road, having held his very successful Friday night DJ residency there since 2005, Antz is considered a part of the venue’s bricks and mortar foundation ever since those formative days, having helped place the destination location on the map for residents and visitors alike practically since its beginnings.

Now, with the restaurant/lounge bar under brand new management and with a brand new name and concept, Antz & Co are over the moon to announce that, after an initial first few weeks of taking over Thursday nights at Sacca’s Lounge Bar, Kuro, our main man is back behind the controls of the venue’s DJ booth this and every Friday till we tell you otherwise. filling the dancefloor to bursting with both the island’s top party people as well as Antz’ own impressive crew of international movers and shakers.

In keeping with Sacca’s sophisticated style, Antz’ sound is the perfect fit and this, coupled with his ability to read his crowd, makes him the DJ of choice for those looking for an after dinner drink and dance. But, lets not get carried away, this is no underground rave, no typical Ibiza club night. This is something else, something for the more discerning individual, and considering that Sacca is a high-end, Asian dining experience, with award-wining Australian chef Lex Hauser at the helm, and a menu that combines subtle Asian flavours alongside hand- picked superior Chinese, Thai and Japanese foods, there’s really no excuse not to make a night of it. With that in mind, we highly recommend you get your troops together, book a table and enjoy the meticulously prepared dishes on offer at Sacca.

Post-fine dining, or even during, and it would be rude not to take advantage of the fact that this summer, German Techno God and aficionado of all things Japanese, DJ and producer Richie Hawtin, has relocated his own Sake Bar to Sacca, giving clients the opportunity to indulge in the alcoholic beverage of choice in the Land of the Rising Sun. Arigatoo, Richie San.

(Oh! And did we mention the complimentary champagne for table bookings of 10+?!) 

(Call SACCA to book, details below)

All in all, music to everybody’s ears, we wager…we’d love to see you there!

FREDDIE’S PUTS THE FUN INTO FUNDRAISER!

pikes

ANNUAL EVENT FOR MERCURY PHOENIX TRUST CONFIRMED FOR SUNDAY 1 SEPT AT IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE

BOY GEORGE HOSTS EVENING DEDICATED TO LANCE LOUD IN AID OF HEP-C TRUST, THURS 22 AUG

PLUS 7WALLACE, PLAY IT BY EAR, EL FABULOSO, MUSTACHIO AND IBIZA ROCKS AFTER-PARTIES

(FIX Ibiza/12 Aug 2013):

With Ibiza Rockin’ at full tilt right now, and the island zooming towards the middle of August, it’s always good to know that there’s another world away hidden from the usual midsummer night’s madness, a rock n roll refuge right up there in the San Antonio Hills- yup, it’s Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel. The legendary agro-rock hotel of choice is a place with its own special magic which, over the next weeks, hosts a plethora of events that, frankly, deserve a big, shiny medal for their diversity, solidarity and sheer fabulousness. Amongst them, a Pikes personal favourite- FREDDIE ROCKS IBIZA- which is back on Sunday 1 September, raising more funds for The Mercury Phoenix Trust in aid of HIV & AIDS patients.

Back for its third year, this is an event with particularly special significance for all at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel, dedicated to the hotel’s favourite former ambassador, Queen’s Freddie Mercury. The aim of the party is to not only celebrate what would have been the 67th birthday of the musical legend-in-leotards but also, to raise funds for the Mercury Phoenix Trust, the organization set up by the remaining members of Queen after the sad demise of their frontman. The Mercury Phoenix Trust has been raising millions to fight AIDS worldwide and here at Ibiza Rocks House, we like to add our tuppence worth in honour of the great man whose hedonistic history with Pikes has already gone down in the Ibiza annals.

Freddie Rocks Ibiza_Flyer2013

Due to public demand, this year the fundraiser begins at lunchtime by the Pikes Pool, with Antz & Co in charge of providing the daytime soundtrack for Freddie Rocks Ibiza, setting the mood for the frivolity as the first Freddie Lookie-Likees start pulling up to the sun loungers.Throughout the afternoon and heading into the night, also on the decks, a line up of local and international DJs including the schamazing 2MercuryBJs, Doorly, Wall of Sound’s Mark Jones, Stray Kitten, Andy Carroll and Colin Peters, most of whom have formed part of the Freddie’s Brigade since its beginnings, and all lining up to pay homage through tuneage.

As per every Freddie Rocks Ibiza event, big, hairy moustaches and/or other related Freddie get-up is pretty much essential- you know we love a theme. Fake Freddie facial hair will be available for purchase on entry, money also going to the charity. Last year’s event managed to raise some 4000€ for the cause; lets see if we can’t top that on Sunday 1 September and do dear Freddie proud on his heavenly cloud.

Important to note, guests also have the option to grab a table and fill up on the Ibiza Rocks House famous Sunday Roast pre- getting their groove on. Between that and the Poolside Menu, perfect fodder for pre-Freddie-Frivolity.

OTHER EVENTS COMING UP in AUGUST at IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE AT PIKES HOTEL:

IDRIS ELBA presents 7WALLACE

Friday 16 & 23 Aug

Idris Elba

Right up there with Ibiza’s Coolest Parties of 2013, 7Wallace has proved to be the party of choice for anyone with half a brain and, if they’re lucky, a direct line to the event’s exclusive guest list. Four down, two more to go, so far the star of stage, screen and now, the Ibiza Rocks House DJ booth, Idris Elba, has taken Fridays and the Ibiza Rocks after-parties to a whole new level. Most recognised for his starring roles in mega-series Luther and The Wire, British actor Elba is also currently premiering his new blockbuster, Pacific Rim, around the globe, squeezing in slots on the red carpets between his six summer appearances at Pikes. With special surprise guests including Pete Tong, Elba proves that, apart from his skills in front of the camera, he sure knows how to throw a party.

Idris Elba said: “The 7 Wallace parties are intimate and understated. There’s no huge club, just a really cool house party vibe. Ibiza Rocks House is perfect- unique, charming, full of character and seeped in music history. I’ve never experienced anywhere like it. It’s a hidden gem in the hills, a place where magical moments just happen naturally and interesting people are drawn in…”

It certainly doesn’t take much detective work to deduce that 7Wallace at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes is the party of choice. Case Closed.

SAT 17 AUG, FROM 5PM

1001088_10152454162020616_1437678988_n

 Another summer special returns to the hotel in the next days, Spain’s notoriously naughty EL FABULOSO shindig, celebrating it’s 3rdanniversary on the White Island and brought to us by a good time girl with old skool class- Silvia Superstar and her fabulous crew. Silvia is, in her own right, a bit of a household name over on the mainland, as singer and musician, model, promoter and all round rock chick who plays an important role in Madrid’s music scene and also, pops up occasionally on MTV’s Alaska & Mario, a reality programme based on the life of one of Spain’s most influential female musicians and front woman of Fangoria, Olvido Gara Jova aka Alaska.

DJs joining la Superstar in the DJ booth this Saturday 17 Aug are confirmed as Carlos Areces (reputed Spanish actor who has recently starred in the films of both Almodovar and Alex de la Iglesia), Vinila von Bismarck (Spanish Burlesque Queen, singer and DJ) and Ibiza’s own Colin Peters (rockmeister extraordinaire, Ibiza Rocks resident DJ and the island’s sharpest dresser). If this year is anything like previous editions of El Fabuloso, we are in for one blast of a day/night. Spain is different- and so are its party people…

Entrance to this event is by way of guest list only, by sending names and contact details to the El Fabuloso Facebook page:

THURS 22 AUG, 7.30pm

543795_484723198280810_306056511_n

Back on the solidarity tip, Ibiza Rocks House is delighted to welcome music industry icon Boy George to Ibiza Rocks House on Thursday 22 August to present a multi-media insight into the life and times of  American TV star and underground hero Lance Loud. The aim of the event is to celebrate Loud’s ife whilst simultaneously raising awareness of HIV and hepatitis C co-infection, of which Lance Loud eventually died. The screening of Lance Loud! A Death in An American Family (2003, 60 min) is well worth a watch and will be followed by a discussion with Hepatitis C Trust patron Boy George. Reinforcing the notion of ‘what not to share’, this event touches  on a serious subject whilst keeping it very, very real.

ELLIE GOULDING & CLEAN BANDIT

Ellie Goulding es, sin duda, una de las compositoras más singulares y convincentes del Reino Unido. Dos años y medio después del lanzamiento de su álbum de debut, Lights, Ellie se ha asegurado un gran éxito mundial, incluyendo los Estados Unidos, donde vendió más de 3 millones de discos. Ahora regresa con su nuevo disco Halcyon, encabezado por el singleAnything Could Happen. En este nuevo trabajo, Ellie se sumerge en la electrónica y la música de baile, lo que produce un choque fascinante entre los ritmos de club y su amor por los paisajes sonoros del folk-pop. Es un gran honor tener a una de las mujeres con más éxito del momento debutando en el escenario de Ibiza Rocks junto a la formación británica Clean Bandit.

Ellie Goulding afirma: “Estoy muy contenta de estar en Ibiza este verano. Ibiza Rocks es uno de los lugares donde siempre he deseado actuar. Cantar en directo para un público es mi pasión y poder hacerlo en un sitio que realmente me gusta es una ventaja extra. ¡Os espero!”.

Hace casi 10 años desde que Dizzie sacó su single de debut y como no podía ser de otra manera Ibiza Rocks está orgulloso de haber sido testigo del increíble viaje que el MC del Este de Londres ha hecho convirtiéndose en una leyenda internacional. Además acaba de ser escogido por Muse para participar como invitado especial en su gira por los estadios del Reino Unido. Habiendo actuado por primera vez en Ibiza Rocks en 2008, lo de Dizzee con Ibiza es toda una historia de amor, ya que volvió durante tres años consecutivos, en 2009, 2010 y 2011. Este mes de agosto regresa a casa con su genial mezcla de estilos para presentar un fascinante y nuevo show en directo con Toddla T Sound como telonero.
Dizzee Rascal afirma: “Estoy ansioso por volver a Ibiza Rocks este año. ¡Tengo ganas de una gran fiesta!  La isla es una descarga, me encanta hacer vibrar al público, ellos saben como responder!”.

SEAMLESS RECORDINGS PRESENTS:

Image

‘VENUS IN MOTION- ‘SOMEBODY’S HEAVEN’
ALBUM LAUNCH
HOTEL ES VIVE
FRIDAY 2 AUG 2013, 8.30PM- 8AM

With DJs:
Angel Johnson (Venus in Motion)
Clara da Costa
Abigail Bailey (Live)
Tom Crane
Graham Sahara

(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…

MEERCD030S2_Artwork

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.

561780_10151721077524754_1030810575_n

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…

Print

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.

IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE/PIKES HOTEL presenta ‘JAZZ LEGENDS’ por BO WOODY WINTER

pikes

VERNISSAGE MARTES 30 JULIO, 20,00h

EL ARTISTA REVELA EN EXCLUSIVA SU HOMENAJE DE 10 METROS A LA MÚSICA JAZZ

La exposición permanecerá hasta el 08 de agosto

 

(FIX/Ibiza 29 Julio 2013): Ibiza Rocks House en Pikes Hotel, sin duda reconocido como el Hotel de rock n roll por excelencia en esta isla de música, es el sitio donde desde sus comienzos hace 33 largos años, los músicos mas reconocidos se han alojado para relajar y/o seguir la fiesta con los más marchosos.

Pero dejemos de lado de momento el Rock n Roll. Nuestros oídos se aguzaron y notamos en las manos un hormigueo al ritmo de jazz cuando nos enteramos de lo último que tendrá lugar en Ibiza Rocks House este Martes 30 julio- la “vernissage” de ‘LEYENDAS DE JAZZ’, exposición del célebre artista holandés, BO WOODY WINTER. Una colección de 18 piezas representando la historia del jazz, que permanecerá expuesta la Suite de Freddie Mercury en el Pikes hotel hasta el día 8 de Agosto. Veréis, a veces el Ibiza Rocks rueda por un camino diferente y baila al ritmo de una melodía diferente…

La exposición, por primera vez en España, es la culminación de varios años de pintar sin parar. Años bañados en la sangre, el sudor y las lágrimas de Woody Winter. Además de los 16 retratos individuales, se verá su última obra maestra, un homenaje de 10 metros de largo a la música jazz y a sus héroes.

 

526446_424606600914961_66614430_n

Entre ellos: Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Nina Simone, Wes Montgomery, Art Blakey, Freddie Hubbard, Dizzy Gillespie, Chet Baker, Eric Dolphy, Esperanza Spalding, James Spaulding son algunos de los músicos retratados en JAZZ LEGENDS. Todos leyendas en sí, la música Jazz representada por los mejores.

Esta última exposición de Bo Woody Winter viene pisando los talones de su reciente exhibición en el Festival de Jazz del Mar del Norte, considerado el mayor festival de jazz internacional en el mundo. Allí, en 2011, Bo Woody Winter conoció a sus héroes-Marcus Miller y Toots Thielemans. Ambos ahora dueños de sus retratos realizados por Bo. Director del Art Show del Festival de Jazz del Mar del Norte, Wim van Zon también juega un papel importante en los exposiciones de Woody Winter en Ibiza y también presentará una introducción visual a las obras de Bo este mismo martes.

Aparte de su pasión inicial, el adicto de jazz, Winter también tiene una trayectoria profundamente arraigada en la escena de la música de baile de Holanda.Hace poco completó una segunda colección de pinturas bajo el nombre de DJ LEGENDS cuya revelación a un público exigente ya se ha confirmado para octubre 11 en Agroturismo Atzaró, Sant Joan. Como introducción a este segundo evento en octobre, este martes también incluirá la presentación de un retrato de la mano de la artista a las manos del DJ internacional Sarah Main.

998052_572250806150539_1992473975_n

Además de una introducción al artista y la presentación orgullosa de su gigantesca pintura 10 metros de largo, Ibiza Rocks House nos invitara a cócteles a partir de las 20,00h, que se sirve con la música de la mejor jazz de la Muriel Grossman Cuarteto. Y mientras que todo lo que está pasando, Bo le realizará una pintura en vivo en la Plaza Mayor de Ibiza Rocks House de una de la innegablemente más talentoso mujeres de jazz -Nina Simone.

Para los que quieren aún más golpecitos de pies, DJ Stray Kitten y Twisted Ace se pondran sus auriculares tocando una selección de swing, jazz, blues y soul.

Por último, en una adición muy agridulce para el evento, Bo Woody Winter dedicará la exposición “Jazz Legends ‘a su padre, que muy lamentablemente perdió su batalla con el cáncer hace solo unos dias. Por lo tanto, Bo se subastará su famoso ‘traje de colores “en Ibiza Rocks House y donar las ganancias a la investigación del cáncer. Gran traje, gran gesto. DEP Sr. Winter Sr.

En definitiva, un eventito muy guay para los enterados, para los amantes de jazz y de arte,sin olvidar a los sospechosos habituales- los” party people” de Pikes ( ya sabeís quienes sois)…Así que manos “Jazz” preparaditos, Ibiza Rocks Hotel se convierte en taberna clandestina americana “speakeasy”.

It ISN”T rock n roll- but we love it!

¡NO es rock n roll, pero nos encanta!.

‘JAZZ LEGENDS’: AN ART EXHIBITION BY BO WOODY WINTER

pikes

VERNISSAGE TUES 30 JULY, 8PM

IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE @ PIKES HOTEL 

 EXCLUSIVE UNVEILING OF ARTIST’S 10M HOMAGE TO JAZZ GREATS

w/ MURIEL GROSSMAN QUARTET + DJ STRAY KITTEN

(FIX IBIZA/ 29 JULY 2013): Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel is undeniably the rock n roll hotel of choice on this, the Mediterranean island of music, a place where every musician worth his salt has laid his weary head and/or partied on with the best of them, ever since the beginning of its 33 year history. But Rock n Roll aside, our ears definitely pricked up and our jazzy hands began to tingle when we heard about the latest happening to take place up at Ibiza Rocks House thisTuesday 30 July.

See, sometimes, Ibiza Rocks rolls down a different road, dances to a different tune – and this Tuesday is a perfect example of what we mean, with the unveiling and vernissage of celebrated Dutch artist, Bo Woody Winter’s ‘JAZZ LEGENDS’ exhibition, a collection of 18 pieces depicting the History of Jazz and which will remain on show in Freddie’s Suite at the hotel until 8 August.

526446_424606600914961_66614430_n

The exhibition, being shown for the first time in Spain, is a culmination of several years of endless painting, bound together by the blood, sweat and tears of Woody Winter and apart from the 16 individual portraits includes his latest masterpiece, a 30ft long homage to jazz and Winter’s own jazz heroes.

Amongst the names- Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Nina Simone, Wes Montgomery, Art Blakey, Freddie Hubbard, Dizzy Gillespie, Chet Baker, Eric Dolphy, Esperanza Spalding, James Spaulding – all legends in their field. Jazz represented by its finest figureheads and just some of the musicians portrayed in ‘Jazz Legends’.

This latest exhibition by Bo Woody Winter comes fresh on the heels of the artist’s recent show at the North Sea Jazz Festival, considered the biggest international jazz fest in the world. It was there in 2011 that Bo Woody Winter met his heroes -Marcus Miller and Toots Thielemans- both now have Bo’s portraits of them on their walls. North Sea Jazz Festival’s Art Show Director, Wim van Zon also plays an important role in Winter’s Ibiza exhibitions and will also present a visual introduction to Bo’s work this Tuesday. After its inauguration, the ‘Jazz Legends’ series will remain in Freddie’s Suite until 8 Aug.

998052_572250806150539_1992473975_n

Aside from the jazz junkie’s obvious first love, Winter also has a deeply rooted history in Holland’s dance music scene, and has recently completed a second collection of paintings under the moniker DJ LEGENDS, already confirmed to be revealed to the discerning public on October 11 at Agroturismo Atzaro, Sant Joan. As an introduction to this second event, this Tuesday’s vernissage will also include the presentation from the artist to international DJ Sarah Main.  But more on that later…

Back to Bo on the Rocks and the plan for this Tuesday. Apart from an introduction to the artist and the proud presentation of his mammoth 10 metre long painting, Ibiza Rocks House will be pulling out the stops and putting on the Ritz with cocktails from 8pm,  served to the tune of the finest jazz from the Muriel Grossman Quartet. Whilst all that is going on, Bo will also do a live paint in the hotel’s Plaza Mayor of one of jazz’s undeniably most talented females- Nina Simone.

For those who want even more, DJ Stray Kitten will be taking up the gauntlet/headphones in Freddie’s Suite playing a selection of swing, jazz, blues and soul.

Lastly, in a very bittersweet addition to the event, Bo Woody Winter will dedicate ‘Jazz Legends’ to his father, who very sadly lost his battle with cancer only last week. Bo will therefore be auctioning his famous ‘splatter suit’ and donating the proceeds to cancer research. Great suit, great gesture.

All in all, a very cool little happening for those in the know, for those who love jazz and those that love art and of course, not forgetting, the usual suspects- the Pikes party people- you know who you are…Jazzy Hands at the ready, Ibiza Rocks House turns speakeasy.

 

It ISN’T only Rock n Roll- but we love it!

URBAN IN IBIZA 5 PRESENTS ‘SONS OF WARHOL’: UNDER A STAR STENCILLED BANNER|

Image

 

CELEBRATING ITS 5TH YEAR AS IBIZA’S URBAN ART FORERUNNER AT ATZARó 1 AUG AND OCEAN BEACH CLUB 23 AUG
AMERICAN ARTISTS CONFIRMED AS SHEPARD FAIREY, JOHN TRACY, BAM MARGERA & CHAD MUSKA


(FIX/ IBIZA/17 JULY 2013) :  As Ibiza summer events go, it’s safe to say that ever since it first exploded onto the calendar in 2009, URBAN IN IBIZA is definitely up there on the Best of the Best List. This year, and what with the team behind the art-music-fashion extravaganza getting ready to celebrate their 5th birthday already (baby’s growin’ up…), this latest edition is set for starry, starry heights with not only a number of dates and venues confirmed but also, a wealth of both exclusive art & international artists all confirmed to take part in this Urban in Ibiza’s fifth celebration of their love of urban art, music and fashion.

The principal dates already set in stone for this edition are 1 Aug at Agroturismo Atzaró23 Aug at Ocean Beach Club and 31 July when Urban in Ibiza pops up for a live paint at Ibiza Rocks Hotel. Add to that the 30 July being set aside for the Mini Markers- a kids street art workshop at Atzaro plus the fact that the Urban in Ibiza exhibition itself runs at Atzaró Gallery until 8 Aug before being shipped off to San Antonio’s Ocean Beach Club, and it’s a veritable month long urbantastic explosion.

The mahoosive news for the urbanistas this time round is the fact that event owner and director Paul Dizzi Saunders has confirmed the acquisition of a number of exclusive works at the events by a number of high profile American artists including the internationally recognised Shepard Fairey, man behind Obey Giant.

Fairey’s name is a familiar one to any aficionado of contemporary urban/street art, his reputation having catapulted to a stellar level in 2008 when his ‘Hope’ portrait of Barack Obama became the iconic image of the presidential campaign and helped inspire an unprecedented political movement. The original image now hangs in the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C. At this year’s Urban in Ibiza, Shepard Fairey unveils some original 2013 work, and this, make no mistake about it, is ‘a HUGE deal’ by any standards.

Image

Representing Skate and Street, the work of Jackass’ Bam Margera and world renowned skater Chad Muska both form part of the SK8 Art St exhibition within an exhibition at Urban in Ibiza this year with fellow artist and curator John Tracy the obvious choice for a personal appearance at the event. ‘SK8 ART ST’ is a skateboarding / street art concept which takes a long look at skate culture and the transformation of skate related objects and paraphernalia into functional and fine artworks.

Aside from the U.S contingent, expect a long list of art and artists including several old faithfuls and a number of young newbies. To date, this year’s Urban in Ibiza will feature the works (and many of them exclusively) of Banksy, David Walker, Mau Mau, Fin Dac, Inkie, Snik, Schoony, Ben Allen, Dan Kitchener aka DANK, Jim Vision, Ben Slow, Henry Hate, Pure Evil, Rowan Newton, My Dog Sighs, Kristian Hornsleth, K Guy, Goldie, Nick Walker, Ryan Callanan aka RYCA, Milo, Copyright, Gemma Compton, Jim Starr, Elmo Hood, Lauren Baker, Chapter, Zeus, Nicolas Dixon, Sequin Kay, Adam Bricusse and if we know Dizzi Saunders, probably a few more squeezed in along the way…

Between them all, a celebration of street art, of skate, of urban culture and lifestyle. And that’s not to mention the fashion, the music and the kids’ workshop.

Image

As per every year, Urban In Ibiza’s organisers are planning to wow with a catwalk show par excellence, this year led by Belgian designer and winner of the ‘Premium Young Designer Award 2013’ at Berlin Fashion Week, urban fashion designer Tom Van der Borght. Showcasing his award-winning  AW 13/14 collection ‘Aponycalypse’, Tom’s wild creations are the missing pieces of the Urban In Ibiza puzzle for 2013, we kid you not. Get ready for a catwalk show that simply screams Urban.

Warming up the catwalk and the crowd, Urban in Ibiza are also delighted to bring White Ibiza on board. After the successful launch of a new online Ibiza fashion boutique earlier this year, the fashion and style experts from White Ibiza are teaming up with Urban in Ibiza to bring their online brands onto the catwalk!

Smelling salts at the ready, it’s White Ibiza’s selection of this summer’s hottest swimwear styles, from hot US label L*Space and Brazilian brand ViX Swimwear among others that will have the crowd’s attention. Think fabulous fringing, wild patterns, mismatched prints, tribal embellishments and edgy hardware – these bikinis are anything but tame, echoing Ibiza’s eclectic yet chic style stakes. Attention grabbing stiff, just the way the Urbanistas like it…

Musically, it’s never a dull affair at Urban in Ibiza and this 5th Anniversary promises to prove just that. Fans of past editions will know the name of Benji Boko rather well, and the English DJ/Producer is back again to get the party well and truly started with his kooky remixes and energetic hip hop mash up sessions. He’s joined by MC Carpetface and DJs Samir, Yuniq, GianLuca de Tiberiis and Tony Montana plus special performances TBC. Extra good news on the music front, with Atzaró’s extended licencing hours meaning that we can make sweet urban music until 4a.m for the first time in Urban’s history at the gorgeous rural hotel hideaway.

As per every edition, Urban in Ibiza loves getting the kids involved. Lined up for their junior art experience this time around, Urban in Ibiza presents Mini Markers, a Street Art workshop with one of Europe’s top Graffiti artists Tom ‘Inkie’ BingleThe workshop is devised for 6-14 year olds and takes place on 30July from 12- 2.30pm again at Atzaró. With a set price per child of 25€, leave your budding Sons of Warhol to get their creative flow on, whilst you parents relax and enjoy lunch at Sant Joan’s jewel in the crown, Agroturismo Atzaró. And with Junior’s masterpiece coming home with him/her, best make a space on the mantelpiece. Booking is essential and can be done by mailing: charlotte@londonwestbank.com

So. To sum up. Art- Fashion- Music. Put it all together and what have you got except one great big, brilliant celebration of Urban Lifestyle.
