Tonight in Ibiza, at the iconic Cafe del Mar, world renowned for its balearic beats and sunset celebrations, we are proud to present South Africa’s very own DJ Euphonik on the decks. We caught up with South African house legend DJ Euphonik last week at the Ibiza IMS on his visit out to Ibiza catching up on the Ibiza music scene, supporting Black Coffee at his new Ibiza Residency, and getting some studio time with one of the greatest vocalists in the history of dance music (more revealed on this soon).
Lucky Life have strong roots in SA!! Whenever we have a home grown artist visiting Ibiza, we do our best to get them heard and known as we continue to fly the flag for SA artists and music here on this magic island, so well known for its music and party scene.
He’s just returned from a gig in Paris. Tonight, DJ Euphonik will play his debut set at Cafe del Mar alongside resident DJ Ken Fan, and Ibiza Resident DJ Heath Holme! And then he’s off to a 5 date tour through his homeland throughout June. We’ve heard a lot about Euphonik over the years and it’s been a pleasure to meet him and share some time and talks here in Ibiza, and we’re really looking forward to hearing is after sunset mix alongside these two Ibiza long standing residents.
Made in China, assembled in the UK and distributed throughout the globe, this stalwart of the dance music industry has been resident DJ, promoter, director and manager at the world’s best venues, including Space Ibiza, Fabrik Madrid, Pacha Ibiza, Privilege, Ibiza Underground and Café Del Mar Ibiza where he now works as resident DJ as well as event and music manager.
Kens early days consisted of going out to raves, spraying graffiti on walls, practicing martial arts with his brother and DJing, to running his own parties and radio shows from the local bars and pubs in his home city, as well owning a record shop called Upfront Records. In 1999 Ken was scouted by UK house music Pioneers Miss Moneypennys to become one of its resident DJs, from here Ken was catapulted onto the International DJ circuit where he toured for over a decade around the globe, earning a nomination for Pioneers best breakthrough DJ in The House Music awards in 2006.
Ken has produced and released numerous tracks on various labels, including Strictly Rhythm and 303 Lovers, as well as producing a debut EP, ‘I Won’t Fall’ under his alter ego El Chino, a name given to him by DJ Sneak, which would be released on Sneak’s own I’m A House Gangster label.
