Interview with Johnny D.

Hola Johnny, this summer you will be playing at some of the most famous parties on the island, how do you feel when realizing this and what is your motivation to play in Ibiza?

I feel really honored and really looking forward to play in Ibiza. I’ve played in Ibiza before and was able to give myself an impression how it will maybe be in the summer. I’m excited for the season to start and when the big clubs open…. I’m simply glad to be a part of that.

How do you prepare yourself for your shows and what is your musical vision for this summer?

I have already changed some things in my live set. I can still improve and want to get freer in using instruments and I want to use a Vocoder too! But actually I just want do something special and want to show more then my previous laptop set up….

You’ve been playing Ibiza in winter a couple of times, how do you estimate the crowd will be in summer?

Till now I only visited Ibiza in 2000 for vacation. I can only picture the Island and the parties then. It was amazing and I’m sure it will be this year too.

How did Cocoon and Monza approach you to play at their nights, how did everything happen?

My agency…or I would say by the music. But I also have many people to thank for supporting me! For example Chris Tietjen and the Cocoon crew, or the Freebase crew with Dorian Paic and Vera, and particularly the guys from Oslo, Federico Molinari and Nekes……..so, I’m really looking forward to play this summer at this special parties and hope only good things will happen!

What is your personal wish for your gigs in Ibiza and the time you will spend here?

Just have a good time and hope to make a good show…and hope to give the crowd a good moment, as well.

Which are the dates we can hear and see you live in Ibiza? And where?

On the 31st of May I’m playing at the Privilege opening together with Federico Molinari….on the 25th of August at the Cocoon night at Amnesia together with Sven Väth, Chris Tietjen, Reboot and another time September 11th at Monza.
