STAR INTERVIEW

STAR INTERVIEW OF THE MONTH – DECEMBER 2012

BEN SANTIAGO – WELL KNOWN HED KANDI DJ AND IBIZA RESIDENT

Ibiza DJ and resident Ben Santiago

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE IBIZA MEMORY ?

Being on the Space terrace in 2005, Groove Armada were playing and every person on the dance-floor had been given a sparkler. Then Andy Cato lit his and held it in the air, signalling to everybody else to light theirs. The whole room lit up and it was one of those very special moments.

 

WHAT PART OF THE ISLAND DO YOU LIKE BEST ?

I can’t say because I love it all!

 

DO YOU HAVE AN IBIZA SECRET VENUE ?

Atlantis in the daytime is a natural beauty, but I think Sunset Ashram ticks all the boxes for what most people would look for in a ‘secret venue’ as it’s off the beaten track, but is still busy and has a great vibe to it.

 

WHAT HAVE BEEN THE BIGGEST CHANGES SINCE YOU’VE BEEN COMING TO IBIZA ?

The rise of the VIP culture!

 

WHATS GOING TO BE HOT IN 2013 ?

Lots of changes as usual. Pacha have a new hotel that looks promising, as does the Ushuaia expansion. Lots of changes also with nights moving and a lot of it is based around Pacha with many of their big nights having already announced they’re moving on. This of course also leaves voids that will need to be filled, so it will be very interesting to see how it all pans out.

 

WHERE ARE YOU PLAYING NEXT ?

In Marrakech next week, it’s great over there!
