This past Tuesday night, the DJ Awards were hosted at Pacha, Ibiza. What about that sentence is not amazing? Nothing. For those of you who couldn’t be there, ourselves included, the biggest news coming out of that end-of-season soiree were the awards that went to Pirupa for, “Party Non Stop,” which received Track of the Season as well as Defected newcomer, Solomun, who was crowned with ‘Best Newcomer’ for the year.
Party with Piuna here:
Clearly this accolade does not need require further explaining.
As for Solomun, our sources that recently invaded the party island returned buzzing about all things Pacha Ibiza and Solomun. Apparently this deep house newcomer is an indisputable one-to-watch, so keep your eye on Solomun, who was regarded by Pacha magazine editor, Ben Turner, with, “...the island now has a new name who connects to the original spirit of Ibiza.” Alongside Pacha resident Andy Baxter, who won the award for Best Resident Ibiza DJ, Solomun has been rocking the Pacha Ibiza decks this summer with sets that have been described as lively and eclectic. Check out Solomun’s disco-influenced fabulous flavor with “Love Recycled.”
And see what Ibiza Spotlight had to say about Solomun’s night with Tensnake at Pacha Ibiza here, which included this un-abashadly delightful performance:
Our only regret this summer? That we weren’t out there on the mainline dance-floor ourselves, having the chance to see it all this season at Pacha Ibiza.
