Mix #096 By Ian Blevins
Acting as a key resident at Space Ibiza’s ‘We Love’ Party for over 8 years, British DJ and producer Ian Blevins puts together a variety of soul, disco, and classic house and techno in an exclusive mix.
Since the crate-digging days from his youth, he’s drawn inspiration from Theo Parrish to Roger Sanchez and Larry Heard and DJ Spinna, hence providing the stature and gravitas he holds today. He has released on a number of illustrious and indie labels worldwide, anything from Droog’s Culprit imprint to Bristol-based Futureboogie, Rome & Tel-Aviv-based Lyase, Colour Series, vinyl-only Blind Jacks Journey, ESP Institute, and Audio Parallax.
In terms of DJing, he’s worked his magic at spaces such as Back To Basics, Ministry Of Sound, Shindig, Butter Side Up and Just Jack, Croatia’s Garden Festival, Green Valley in Brazil, and 360 in Dubai, and known for his four-year Ibiza ‘Future Disco’ residency at Carl Cox’s The Revolution. Blevins deftly crafts each set individually, soaking up his surroundings and the mood of the crowd in an almost osmotic process.
