One of my proudest career signings that grew to become world famous from personally recorded cassettes to over 5 Million sales of the CD's and still selling in this digital age on iTunes, Amazon and Ebay.
I can claim sole responsibility
of persuading Pepe and Fritz of Space Ibiza
to move their infamous Terrace DJ set-up from behind the bar area, where it had been for years, to a back-wall facing the centre of that famous Space Terrace
dancefloor and agreeing to my firm insistence that DJ Carl Cox
would be booked to play a three deck full-on House music set
on the Terrace instead of playing Techno
inside their main room.
A zillion words have been written, spoken and sung about Ibiza, that little Island off the coast of Spain, its clubs, music, notoriety and unique place in the world.
True to the EG life path I did my bit to ignite the flame of interest and true to form, the Island's energy caressed me, inspired me, loved me, burnt me and left an indelible mark on my soul, but I'm proud of my contribution to today's Ibiza, my work is on the island forever and it was always from the soul, not the Euro.
The folks who know me personally know that the things closest to my heart are my sisters, daughter, friends, music and to see people's lives liberated into something they love doing. A human-being singing and dancing at the same time with their friends is a state of pure happiness, thousands of years ago the tribes of Africa (where we all originated from) finished their day dancing and singing around a fire, its in our DNA. Ibiza has delivered that to millions of people over the years, well before my era and long after. To have contributed to the magic with some EG vision is only a fraction of the unbridled joy it gave me too. Ibiza is like a wild stallion that people over the years have tried to tame and for a moment they think they have it under their will until one day it runs off into the sunset, to be pure wild Eivissa again...
Continueing with the EG creative DNA being on the island - the Eden Club logo on top of the building was an EG moment of inspiration - a peach cut in half that also has a suggestive element to it too maybe !!
