The second day of IMS Ibiza 2016 continued to deliver headline-worthy stories from talks with major artists and conversations around current news in electronic music.
The day started off with a captivating keynote interview with Erick Morillo, who opened up about a history with drug addiction and his road to recovery. Shortly after, an impressive panel made up of Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, Nicole Moudaber, Tale Of Us, James Zabiela and Black Coffee took to the stage for The Art of Playing Differently, a technology-driven discussion inspired by Hawtin’s innovative new mixer release and each of the artists’ unique perspectives.
Later, founder of Ushuaia Yann Pissenem confirmed the take over of Space Ibiza after its closing and Mixmag presented The New Breed panel with artists Danny Daze, Francesca Lombardo, Kölsch and Danny Howard.
“When all these young DJs were all of a sudden blowing up and eclipsing me – my ego couldn’t take it. My ego couldn’t take that I wasn’t the top dog anymore. That’s when things started to unravel.”
– ERICK MORILLO (Artist, USA)
“After the amazing creative work that Pepe has done in the last 27 years, I’m glad and proud to step in. It’s a big responsibility for me for the international scene and the electronic scene.”
– YANN PISSENEM (Founder / CEO, Ushuaïa, Spain)
