The loveable label boss, DJ and long-standing producer is one of the scene’s most respected statesmen, running his labels MadHouse and MadTech, and now new imprint Kaoz Theory.

DJ Mag Ibiza meets him to find out more...

Talk us through what you’re up to in Ibiza this season?
“Doing my residency at DC-10, and I’ll be playing Space with Carl Cox before they close the doors for good. I finally got to catch up with Disclosure at DC-10 recently, which was great. I think they will return very soon, super-cool guys! My DC-10 DJ family and the crowd that comes makes Ibiza a special place to play for me.”
What makes DC-10 such a special club?
“It’s a unity with all of us, it’s like coming home to a family that play incredible music all under one roof. Well, the garden doesn’t have a roof, so I will just say venue. It’s always a pleasure to see everyone — we are all very close and we push each other to do better, it’s all love for the music and there’s so many styles. No egos ever.”
Name three tracks that remind you of the White Isle?
“Mr Fingers ‘The Sun Can’t Compare’
Azari & III ‘Hungry For The Power (Jamie Jones Remix)’
Apollonia ‘Close To The Edge’.”
Finally, what’s Ibiza’s worst-kept secret?
“Flying on Vueling, run away, far away! Worst airline — all you can do is book a ticket and hope for the best [laughs].”
