Interview with Bruno from Ibiza

12 comments 2006 at 08.24 am posted by Veerle Pieters

I'm kinda hoping that this interview is the start of more interviews with the artists/DJs that I admire. We take off with Bruno from Ibiza, born in the North of France in 1969 (moved to Ibiza in 1994). When he first arrived on the island he played in local bars and later opened his own music store. In 1997 he became resident dj at the famous sunset bar Café del Mar in San Antonio. He had the difficult task to replace Jose Padilla, one of the most important ambient & downtempo DJs around the world. So I hope you'll enjoy this session as much as I did.

How to screw your potential buyers

11 comments 2005 at 11.38 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

Yes the lords of the music industry are at again, this time in The Netherlands (and don’t get me started on the Stichting Thuiskopie). Geert and I are listeners of the Daily Source Code from Adam Curry and we love the Mashups, Hit Test from Jan Polet or the Backtracks Podcast Quiz. A fun way to give our brains a good workout.

What’s new from Apple… The story

Great excitement this evening at 7pm for the Apple special Music Event. Rumors were flying and stock was real high again. Since Apple doesn’t give us a stream we followed everything like in the good old days on IRC ;-)

Miguel Migs - 24th Street Sounds

13 comments 2005 at 01.40 am posted by Veerle Pieters

Time for some music now, when browsing through the ITMS recently I saw that iTunes Music staff added an album that I bought in 2004. NRK’s Nite:Life 20 Miguel Migs - 24th St. Sounds. I think it is about the historic, tree-lined street known as El Corazon de la Misione, or “the heart of the Mission”. Miguel has been on my top list for a long time and after meeting him in Ibiza for a chat the love for his vibe only got stronger. This laid back down to earth guy gets me moving with his latest example of the sunny, jazzy, funky music also known by some as deep house.

Everybody’s Free (good advice and a tip for the Summer)

22 comments 2005 at 03.13 am posted by Veerle Pieters

Ladies and gentlemen of the class of ‘97:

Wear sunscreen.

If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long-term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists, whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience. I will dispense this advice now.

Nude Tempo One

It’s Friday, almost weekend so time for some relaxing and laid back Chill out with a taste of Soul and Funk. For me this kind of music is ideal when I’m trying to find some creativity. The CD Nude Tempo One is a release from March 2002, so a while ago but still a great asset to your collection.

On air now: chilled songs from Eivissa

19 comments 2005 at 05.05 am posted by Veerle Pieters

Last year I was looking forward to 2005 because I’ve learned that January would bring another edition of the marvelous chillhouse mix compilations by Café del Mar. Café del Mar is the world’s first sunset bar and DJ Bruno has an undisputable taste for the coolest Balearic tunes. He is personally responsible for most of the huge Café del Mar CD collection.

Tiësto in Concert report

7 comments 2004 at 06.35 am posted by Veerle Pieters

Boy did the time fly this weekend (especially if you’re sleeping most of the time). The need for some shut-eye was due to Tiësto in Concert last Saturday at the Ethias Arena in Hasselt.  I’ve been looking forward to this concert for quite some time and expectations were high due to last year’s concert in Arnhem. That gig and its vibe was pretty hard to beat. After driving for 1,5 hour we arrived at the Ethias Arena around 10pm.
