To recap, the taste-making website Emerging Ibiza will see a carefully picked selection of Experts (all of whom are international DJs, label bosses and or established promoters) shine a light on who they think are the hottest new electronic music talents. These artists are then invited to play the Emerging Ibiza Discovery Festival from 27th May – 31st May 2014 with the most popular invited back to be a part of a season of Emerging Ibiza events in Ibiza from June to September.
Emerging Ibiza has just announced the full list of experts, including Circus boss Yousef, ViVA Music label head Steve Lawler, Brazilian DJ, producer and D-Edge Club owner Renato Ratier, Ibiza regulars and Flying Circus chiefs Audio Fly, Detroit’s Visionquest members Shaun Reeves and Lee Curtiss, plus 8Bit boss Nick Curly, founder and artistic director of Ushuaia Yann Pissenem, established island promoter and DJ Chris Bones, and IMS co-founders Danny Whittle and Ben Turner.
Each of these taste-making talents are in the process of selecting their ’emerging artists’ for the first season, with some of the names already in place.
Aspiring DJs and producers can upload their own 30-minute mix to Mixcloud, with each one being judged by the EI panel of Experts. All the best mixes will then be made available on the EI Mixcloud, after which the public gets involved by listening, voting and sharing on social networks. Anyone who enters must not have played Ibiza before and winning entries will be judged on originality, style and technical ability. Prizes will then be handed out for the most voted for and popular mixes:
Prize 1 – Play A Show At The E.I. Break-Thru Festival 27th – 31st May
Prize 2 – Play A Show At The E.I. Season of Events June – Sept 2014
