Wow, the September issue already. It only seems like a millisecond ago that we were basking in the first of the Spring sunshine and toasting a few light refreshments in anticipation of the summer antics ahead. And nothing is anticipated more in the world of dance music than Ibiza. In the new issue we bring you up to speed with everything that's happening on The White Isle this summer. Our massive cover feature 'Ushuaia, Luciano and the party revolution' focuses on how Ushuaia went from being Ibiza's hottest underground beach party one year to a £17.5 million hotel party complex the next, complete with a Luciano residency, hoards of girls in mirrored bikinis and rooms decked out with state of the art DJ equipment.
Elsewhere in Ibiza, we find out how MTV's Friday night residency at Amnesia is going down and why Cream Ibiza is good for you (hint: it's because Mixmag are bringing some incredible DJ talent to the terrace for you). We also catch up on all the hottest gossip from Ibiza this season and offer up our insider knowledge on where to head on the island for the remainder of summer.
Our covermount CD this month comes courtesy of Sven Väth who is celebrating 30 years in the business. The Cocoon icon is one of the first DJs to make a Mixmag cover CD solely of his own productions, with the mix putting together choice cuts from his career between 1986 and 2006. You can listen below to a fifteen minute preview of the CD.
Closer to home we catch up with Toddla T as he heads back to Sheffield to headline the city's Tramlines Festival, Alex Metric as he smashes up the Camden Roundhouse in support of Swedish House Mafia and Bill Brewster fills us in on the craze for AOR disco. We also speak to Matt Zo about towing the line between playing killer trance with the likes of Above & Beyond and Tiësto and making searing drum 'n' bass on Hospital Records.
As always we review the best new albums and all the month's essential tunes from house, techno, d'n'b, dubstep, hard dance and beyond. We're also bringing you interviews with the man behind our cover CD Sven Väth, Ben Westbeech and some of the world's top DJs tell us about their worst gigs. Once again, it's your one stop shop for everything that matters in the world of dance music this month.
