IMS Ibiza 2016: Day Two Highlights



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.”

“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)

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
