Idris Elba takes on Ibiza Rocks

Idris-Elba-DJ-ibiza

Most well known for his performances in HBOs The Wire as Stringer Bell and more recently as the title character in the BBC’s Luther, Idris Elba will taking a change on a change of pace this summer in Ibiza. Elba is in fact also a talented DJ and music producer who is no stranger to the decks on The White Isle. He was most recently on the island during the International Music Summit (IMS) proving that is not just acting that Idris Elba can wow audiences with. He DJ’d on top of the iconic Dalt Villa with legendary names Pete Tong and Fat Boy Slim.

DJing from the age of fourteen, he was inspired by his father who had a real passion for music. A big part of his family upbringing was centred around DJing and it is as much a part of his journey as acting. In his earlier years, he and his cousin spent time running his uncles mobile disco.

So what sound can you expect from the face that you will soon start recognising as Idris Elba, and not his television counterparts? Eclectic is probably the word you will need to look for. He takes influences from R&B, hip hop, house and reggae; an Elba set is likely to get your musical juices flowing. His sets on the island are also likely to infuse a lot of the traditional tastes of Ibiza stalwarts too, with the sounds of deeper house, progressive house and electro.

Taking place over seven weeks, there will be seven guest DJs helping him raise the roof at this legendary Ibiza venue. If you are wondering why the name Pikes sounds familiar, it played host to both Freddie Mercury´s birthday party and is the venue of Whams’s Club Tropicana music video.
