For the last 4 year or so I have been a resident for Future Disco here on the island at Space. This year is no different and have been holding down the Premier Etage all summer again and this Tuesday I’ll be making my Future Disco debut on the Sunset Terrace.
They’ve asked me a few questions about various topics and will be sending over a brief mix for the Radio show as well. In the mean time here’s me answering questions.
For episode 10 of the We Love podcast I’m in sterling company with ridiculously nice people at Hot Chip whos set on the terrace at Space was recorded for all the people who weren’t lucky enough to be there on the night or just can’t remember it.
My contribution to the podcast is picking 5 tunes i’ve been enjoying this summer. These differ from day to day so here’s 5 I’ve been enjoying all summer but tracks i’d could also remember at that point in time in particular. Enjoy anyhow myself chatting with Andy Wilson.
Well the season is well underway here in Ibiza and i thought i’d inform you all of the places you’ll be able to hear me play music this summer.
First of all each is the mighty We Love @ Space. The sundays already this summer have been busier than ever and the quality too has been second to none. Can only see that continuing as this months roll on. You can catch me each week on the Premier Etage.
Secondly at Space Ill be back at Carl Cox as part of the Future Disco crew. Each week Future Disco will be hosting the Sunset Terrace pre midnight and the Etage after as well El Salon.
Each Saturday, apart from a few jaunts, Ill be holding down my saturday residency at Lo Cura. Something I have done now for 5 years or so. For those who find it hard to locate it can be even harder to leave.
After playing a few gigs at the end of last season Im happy to be onboard weekly at such an institution in Ibiza’s port. A hang out for many folk and ran by great people i couldn’t be happy to playing records here. IM playing wednesdays currently but that’ll be changing to Fridays shortly.
Last but not least Ill be spinning a couple days a week at Escollera on Es Cavellet. This is the first bar on the left as you head to the beach and as a result gives you a stunning few of the beach. Fantastic location, staff and food. This one is very good for soul.
Last week the lovely We Love lot uploaded a mix I have done, as I do every year, of alot of music I’ve enjoyed at vairous stages throughout the summer. You can visit this post here. Of course there’s too many to put up, but what is left is a selection of music that has recieved alot of airplay throughout the months of May to October. Each track evoking particular memories of time and space in an order that I hope makes sense to those listening from start to finish. Without further adue you can stream the mix on soundcloud here.

At the beginning of Summer 2011, Jem Haynes moved to the flat directly above me. This was soon the beginning of regular coffee’s and music making sessions. After getting involved in a series called Treme, our Second Line guise was born as we sought inspiration in a lot of the songs, drums and rhythms from the music in the series for an EP.
Over a year and a half has gone by and in that time has seen these tracks tested around the globe, including We Love at Ministry of sound and Space in Ibiza where they have worked to full effect on a weekly basis. This debut EP is also the first release on Jem Haynes new Colour Series label. More music is in the pipeline currently from ourselves, Jem and Mike Peters. Check the Colour Series soundcloud for more
Positive feedback so far has come from Jozif, Orde Meikle, Gabriel Ananda, Nic Fanciulli, Luciano, Pete Tong, Sasha, C. Von Stroke, Bookashade, Chris Fortier, Anderson Noise, Dibby Dougherty, Benji Candelario, Lee curtis, Sander Kleinenberg, Rich Hawtin, Stephan Bodzin, ATFC, Tom Thorpe and Andrew Grant.
Here’s clips from two tracks on the EP. Click on the beatport link above for all of them.

Here’s a video I found also that someone posted of me playing Big Chief at for We Love at Green Valley in Brazil.
Here is the first two hours of my set at We Love this summing on the terrace. Had huge fun being back in that room again and was glad to be leaving it full when I finished. Following myself was Technasia, James Zabiela and Groove Armada. Not bad company to be in.[soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/66217542" iframe="true" /]
What seems like an eternity ago now, myself and the We Love posse spent an amazing few days at the Garden Festival in its brand location in Tisno. Thought i’d post up a few pictures from that weekend to relive the weekend, in particular the We Love boat party we did with myself, PBR Streetgang and Mr Doris. Amazing. Cracking place, cracking people, cracking music.
As well as my summer residency at Space for We Love I’ll also be making my debut at the Garden festival in Croatia alongside PBR Streetgang and Mr Doris. The boat party will be on the 6th July and set sail to the high sea’s at 18.30. I’ve heard a rumour im playing another set not on the boat also so stayed tuned to http://www.facebook.com/ianblevinsmusic for any developments.

Once again I’ve the esteemed pleasure and honour of being one of the We Love residents at Space this summer. Ill be taking the reigns for 12 dates mainly up on the very familiar Premier Etage, as well as the El Salon and the famous Space terrace.
For more information on the dates check my profile here which also features mixes for myself. See you in the sun.
Following Jem Haynes in the residents rule series, I step up to answer lots of questions about the past, present and future concerning music and non-music related activities.
