The eighth summer residency of Def Mix and Saw Recordings is now in full swing on the island of Ibiza. Subtitled the Peep Show, the night aims to add titillating eye candy to the Ibiza club menu. After all, who wants to stare at a DJ all night?
In the eighties and nineties the Def Mix production unit of Frankie Knuckles, David Morales, Satoshi Tomiie and Hector Romero refined and defined the sound of piano-driven New York house. Tomiie and Romero have since shifted their focus to progressive stable Saw Recordings but each summer the foursome reunite for a combined residency at Pacha in Ibiza.
This season’s Peep Show is voyeurism all the way. Pacha has been known to pull a slightly older (but nonetheless sexy) crowd and with the audiences getting sexier by the year, just who will be watching who? The burlesque theme has been carried over to the flyers for the residency, featuring titillating shots by fetish photographer Timothy Dolph, who shoots suggestive but not slutty, pervy but not pornographic images for lad magazines Maxim and FHM.
Of course if you're really square, you can still just face the DJ booth the whole night and enjoy the vocal house of Def Mix and the prog of Saw on offer. But be warned, David Morales often DJs with his shirt off in Ibiza.
The Def Mix/Saw Recordings Ibiza 2006 residency is already underway and will run every Saturday at Pacha until September 30th. Guest DJs include Audiofly, Wally Lopez, Groove Junkies, Laurent Garnier, David Guetta, Lexicon Avenue, Chus and Ceballos, Shapeshifters and Pete Heller.
This Saturday, Satoshi Tomiie and Italy's Audiofly will be the DJs struggling to keep their eyes wandering from the pitch control. Check RA's Ibiza Events Listings for full details of the line-ups each week.
