Q: Do you have any special memories of Pacha from over the years?

A: The Perfecto residency, which was a big success, and started the trend of big DJs having their own nights at Pacha.

Q: When did you first visit the Pure Pacha?

A: Many many years ago!

Q: Do you find yourself playing in any way different when you are @ Pacha?

A: Not really. Every show is important. Educate but also entertain.

Q: How do you see the scene in Ibiza 2008?

A: From a musical point of view, I think the spectrum is getting wider and wider. We are seeing rock plus hip hop have a strong presence on the island, but of course dance music is still at the forefront of the scene.

Q: Do you have an all-time favourite Ibiza record?

A: I have many, but the record that stands out was when Perfecto had its residency at Pacha. I was given a record by Danny Whittle (Pacha’s brand manager) which was Rui Da Silva's record 'Touch Me' six months before it came out. I played it every week.

Q: What is your perception of the Pacha crowd?

A: Good looking, well dressed, and how they love to dance!

Q: How do you think Pacha is still going strong after 30 years in the business?

A: A great management team, visionaries, and a total understanding of how a great club should work.

Q: What can people expect from your gig?

A: First and foremost, a fantastic night! New music, some Ibiza classics and a great, great vibe. I'm really looking forward to it!

Q: How is the rest of the year looking for you?

A: I am currently in Los Angeles scoring a new movie called Humboldt Park, then I go to Ibiza to do some shows… then I go on tour supporting Madonna on her world tour, and then I start work on the next film, a British gangster movie called The Heavy.

Q: Can you give us a big track for the summer?

A: Robert Vadney: "Away From You".
