After a couple of holidays on Ibiza in the mid-late 80’s Charie returned to the island in 1990, bringing with him 20 DJs including Dean Thatcher, Steve Lee, Orde Meikle, Michele Soma, Terry Farley, Rocky and Diesel (who went on to become XPress2) and bands The Farm, 808 State and A Man Called Adam and last but not least, a Channel 4 film crew. The result? A Short Film About Chilling, the now infamous documentary covering the first wave of British tourists, DJs and promoters hitting the island on a clubbing holiday, cited as ‘the greatest TV show ever made about dance culture’. To this day the film is one of the most popular youth culture shows ever shown on British TV and director Angus Cameron went on to work with Guy Ritchie, while the talent in the film became some of the most prolific dance music artists of our time.
Following the success of A Short Film About Chillling, Charlie became involved in a party called Mad On Mondays with Tommy Mac, where he co-hosted a night with Dave Beer, Back to Basics and Cowboy Records. Manumission also got involved. Mad On Mondays was eventually taken over by Manumission and the rest, as they say, is history. Charlie also promoted the infamous “Circo Loco” parties at DC10 before moving into the VIP holiday arena, mainly because “my mates kept asking me to sort things out for them.”
For five years Jo was weekly resident DJ at the famous Circo Loco at DC10 and also graced the decks at almost every major club on the island, including Pacha, Space, Cream and Dance Valley at Amnesia. She went on to become resident DJ for Azuli at both El Divino and Space, was personally invited by P.Diddy to play at his annual Ibiza birthday bash and is currently the weekly resident DJ for Pete Tong’s Wonderland at Eden every Friday night throughout summer.
It became very clear that Jo had firmly stamped her own mark on the island when she was awarded the coveted Best Ibiza Electro DJ Award at the M8 Ibiza Dance Awards in 2006. Adding more notches to her DJing belt, alongside Ibiza legend DJ Pipi, Jo mixed the Pacha Millennium CD and with Cirillo, the very first (often cited as the ultimate) Circo Loco compilation. Jo recently became a mum for the first time.
