A lot has happened in the beautiful Balearic environs of Ibiza over the past few months—from new parties like Minus’ ENTER. teaming up with Luciano’s Cadenza night, to the huge International Music Summit drawing industry and clubbers alike. But one development we’ve been happily watching and supporting is the Ibiza-based Burn Studios residency program, in which 11 up-and-coming DJs from all over the world duked it out for a few coveted residencies on the White Isle.
Now Burn Studios is rolling out the six-part documentary they made of the proceedings, and the first episode is available for your viewing enjoyment. Episode One features those lucky 11 guys, who’ve already risen to the top from an entry pool numbering in the thousands, as they quickly settle into Ibiza life and meet with mentors Luciano, Jamie Jones, 2ManyDJs, and Sasha at the island’s International Music Summit, where Beatport’s own Executive Creative Director Clark Warner spoke earlier this summer.
“Beatport is proud to support Burn Studios in Ibiza this season with their inspiring program,” Warner says. “Having met all the finalists earlier in Ibiza it’s clear that everyone had the drive, talent, and passion to be in the final stage. Now we all get to watch the story unfold on what is surely an experience of a lifetime for any DJ.”
And watch we will. Peep the first episode below, and stay tuned in the weeks to come for more.
