Radio Team

Ibiza Club News Radio has been bubbling around in the background for quite a few weeks now. Testing, plotting, dancing to ourselves, preparing for a long winter of great music leading into hopefully the return of summer in 2021. As we celebrate our official launch, it’s time to get to know the residents. This time around, we chat to BRODYR…

Hey! Nice to meet you. What’s your name?

BRODYR

What made you want to be a DJ?

We’d always both enjoyed dance music from a young age. We used to mess about on the old desktop computer at home on some free software called Atomix or Automix? But it was more of a hobby to pass some time.

It wasn’t really until 2012 where the idea of actually giving it a go came about. We were in the pool at Ibiza Rocks hotel, I’ve got no idea who was DJing but he was having a nightmare! None of his tracks were mixing he was making a right racket. And that’s where me and my big mouth (who knew nothing about actually DJing said “This DJ is shit! I could do a better job!” After a few back and forths between us all in the pool, a friend eventually said “If you think you can do better, then I’ll make you a bet! Not only will you not be able to do a better job, but I’ll bet you you can’t learn how to DJ, and get a gig in Ibiza” so my reply was “I’ll tell you what, not only will I learn how to do it and get a gig in Ibiza, I’ll DJ in Space!” Everyone laughed but Dave said “If you did want to do it I’d do it with you too” and the rest was history.

I think everyone expected that to be the end of the conversation and a bet lost on my behalf, but we got home from Ibiza, started learning how to mix, and had our first gig in Feb 2013 and managed to get our first gig in Ibiza that summer on a boat party. We eventually made it to Space in 2015 a year before it closed.

What are your top 5 tunes EVER? We’ll be secretly judging you, so they better be good.

Whats your favourite club and why?

It’s such a tough question. Space will always hold a dear place in both of our hearts as it was the first time we’d heard the underground sound of Ibiza, and with it being such a goal for us it will always be special. If you visit any of the superclubs in Ibiza you can’t not be impressed, Amnesia will always be amazing, so will DC10! And there’s definitely something special about Vista Club too in Privillege.

One place that I was mega impressed with in the UK which took me by surprise was the new venue for The Warehouse Project at the Mayfield Depot. The place is unreal! Absolutely huge and to have somewhere like that in the UK is amazing.

Tell us your favourite thing about being a DJ?

It’s got to be the music and the people you meet along the way. There’s people who only a few years ago we didn’t know, and now they’re like family. Everyone is on the same mission. We’re all pushing forward together and it’s great to see.

The travelling is also a great bonus. Especially with there being two of us. We usually have a laugh on any road trip and it’s just good to get away sometimes.

What advice have you been given in life that you found useful?

I think with us having a few businesses ourselves, we’ve always been keen on personal development. So even though the advice hasn’t been DJ specific, a piece of advice that has always stuck would be by Jim Rohn who says “Work harder on yourself than you do on your job or your business” and it’s something we’ve always lived by. You could be the best artist in the world in your own field, but if you attitude and philosophy is wrong, you won’t get very far! How you think about things has huge impact so it’s important to try and work on being in a good headspace and just allowing the magic to happen.

Lockdowns have been awful for dance music, if you had to make a bet – how do you see 2021 playing out?

Wow – talk about a mood hoover! haha. If I was making a bet… then I’d say it’s going to get “worse” before it gets better. But on the same hand, I think the word “worse” needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. As I said before, how you experience life depends massively on your philosophy, so regardles of what gets thrown at us, we need to adapt and be grateful that we’re still here. We live in a society of blame, people don’t like to face the reality that they have more control than they think, most people will blame the government that they’re skint, or their boss that they don’t get paid enough and the list goes on. I think if people learn to accept that their actions will lead them where they end up and appreciate that life is a gift that we should enjoy, then regardless of what happens, we’ll be ok!

Whether there’s more lock downs or not, for us 2021 will still be full of new music and new high’s! We’ll keep on pushing whatever happens.

Where is the best place for people to check out your music?

The best place would be Spotify for tracks or Soundcloud for mixes. You can also subscribe to our label Black Seven Music on all podcast streaming platforms.

Tell us about this months mix?

For this month we went almost 100% Black Seven Music! We only included 1 track that wasn’t from our own imprint and that was a track from our brothers over at Libero. Apart from that, this mix was all Black Seven tracks and the response has been great! Really happy with the reception all of the music had.
