QUICKFIRE Q&A WITH OUR RESIDENTS
Your summer soundtrack is sorted on a daily basis in 2017 thanks to our Rocks Resident DJ crew providing nothing but good vibes and the biggest sounds on the island!
From poolside sessions to warming up for some of the hottest shows of the season, let us introduce you to the ultimate crew as we grill them with the questions and gossip we want to know…
Growing up I always wanted to be Fatboy Slim, and now I live in Brighton and DJ in Ibiza so I’m getting closer!
Lots of FUN.
Last year when Major Lazer played at the hotel. They’re one of my favourite acts in the world and the energy they create is unreal!
I used to be Hanson’s biggest fan and maybe still am…
5. WHAT ONE TRACK COULD YOU LISTEN TO ON LOOP?
Currently J-Hus – Did You See or Hanson – mmmBop
Riddims for days! Press play on the latest playlist from Oli P 🎵
Definitely a mash up of all genres from D&B, Indie, Bashment, Hip hop, House… I like to please everyone!
Work hard, be nice to everyone you meet and always play to the best of your ability because you never know who might be watching or listening!
After most nights I end up in Soul City on the West End, so any night there haha…
This season I’m most looking forward to the Elrow Pool Parties at Ibiza Rocks. They’re an exclusive for us and it’s easily the best party in the world!
6. WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM ONE OF YOUR SETS?
Non Stop Feel Goodness, no boundaries just vibes. I’m a big advocate of vibes!
7. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE HIDDEN GEM IN IBIZA?
Gotta be Tapas Tapas! If you can find it… you deserve to eat there, trust me. Come to think of it, I can’t remember how to get there.
8. DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR SOMEONE WANTING TO GET INTO THE INDUSTRY?
Be passionate, be patient, be consistent & KEEP GOING!
9. WHAT HAS BEEN THE BEST AFTER PARTY YOU’VE BEEN TO ON THE ISLAND?
Probably the 1st Craig David TS5 Pool Party. It made history for us and it was at a transitional time for Craig too. UNREAL scenes. The night before was Artwork at Pikes. As soon as the fat lady sings (no joke, a fat lady actually sings) it’s a non stop groove based affair with
not a single frown in sight. I couldn’t make this up!
10. AND FINALLY, WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED FOR THIS SEASON
The lineup this summer is the most outrageous lineup EVER. so many Big names gracing our stage (Craig David, Sean Paul etc) but I’m most looking forward to the Squad reassembling. Something happens when Pat, Danny, Oli & I are together, this infectious energy… last summer was a warm up, the levels will be all the way up this year. For SURE!

DJ. Music. Zugzwang.
Being Stormzy’s backup dancer
My favourite word is zugzwang!
John Cage – 4’33”
Absolute crowd control. The security are great.
McDonalds hash browns
This one time at Pikes, the party went on too long and I couldn’t get a taxi so I slept under a desk.
