It’s All Go For Emerging Ibiza

Posted on May 19, 2015

These days everyone’s a DJ, and while that’s great for the people who can get by with very little talent, like that dude from Mexico who managed to play an entire set without any equipment being plugged in (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, Google it). And to be fair lots of other, more successful DJs (without naming names) who press a lot of buttons without actually doing any mixing, it’s not so great for the people who have a genuine flair for music but have to wade through a lot of white noise in order to get noticed. And that’s why Emerging Ibiza is such an important addition to the Ibiza scene. This year the festival returns to the island from May 26 – 29, and following tradition, a panel of established experts handpick up and coming talent to perform at numerous events throughout the duration of the festival.

Emerging Ibiza presents a rare opportunity for undiscovered artists to showcase their abilities across a wide range of high profile events, all with the backing of some of the industry’s top minds. This year’s final line-up of future stars has only just been revealed and we can confirm that it’s a scorcher. Under the influence of Capital Xtra DJ Coco Cole is Brodance, Second Sun and Wayward. Jack Wickham, Antonio Thagma and Dorak Gurlap all caught the eye of Detroit label, Visionquest. Cera Alba, Marquis Hawkes and Manu Gonzalez all captured DJ Darius Syrossian’s attention, and Danny Whittle has given Jamie Roy, Harley Maxwell and 2 Villas the chance to show off what they can really do. A whole host of other acts have also been chosen to perform, with the likes of Mixmag, Bill Patrick, Shlomi Aber, UNER, Chris Bones, Dave Vincent, Rafa de Siria, Eton Messy and Alex Montoya acting as the influential judges.

Now the acts have got through to this stage of the competition it’s down to them to prove they’ve got the skills and social media prowess to propel them into first place position. The prizes are split into four tiers and what’s up for grabs ranges from a Pioneer DJ flagship set-up, to a spot playing at the Emerging Ibiza closing party in September of this year, right through to a management contract with Emerging Ibiza. So there’s everything to play for and a whole lot to prove. This year’s key events are set to be the Ibiza Rocks opening party on 26 May, featuring Eton Messy, Blonde, 99 Souls and Harley Maxwell. There’ll be a Boat Party and Zoo Project collaboration on 27 May and the following day Emerging Ibiza take over at Ocean Beach with a new talent-infused pool party. This will also be a chance for the Wild Card entry to shine – if you’ve not been selected by one of the judges you can still upload a 30-minute mixtape to Mixcloud, register on the EI website and you could still have a chance to perform.

It’s fantastic to see the industry actively promoting and pushing new talent – after all it’s these guys who’ll be shaping the future of Ibiza in years to come. We’re looking forward to seeing what gems the judges have unearthed this year, and we can guarantee there won’t be a single dodgy unplugged cable in sight.
