Does Ibiza still play a role in breaking a new tune?

I believe so because most of the international DJ's and producers play here in the summer, and they are playing the freshet cuts and productions because they know that the Ibiza dancefloor is a great place to 'test' their sounds.

You've got a night off, where do you head for food?
