ASK AN ISLANDER – DJ Samir
When Diana Ross says you are an “…incredible DJ” then it’s probably safe to say you are an incredible DJ. Samir is also a gorgeous human being — funny, generous, kind and humble. “The Superstars DJ” (GQ magazine) Samir’s career spans two decades (not that you can tell from his youthful skin and cheeky sparkling eyes) and he has played for everyone from Diddy, Jenson Button, Prince Albert of Monaco and even a recent loved-up royal couple. Sitting at the nexus between the fashion and music worlds is testimony to how popular Samir is, not just for his incredible ninja skills in honing in on what will get the crowd moving, but just on how flexible and warm he is to work with.
Here Samir shares some of his Island secrets with us.
My “in love with Ibiza moment” ….The Ibiza Old Town in the winter, you can’t beat the medieval backdrop alongside the real Ibizan characters (and without the tourists).
A normal Island adventure for me looks like….Hiking around Santa Agnes and watching the incredible nature blend into the magnificent Mediterranean ocean.
My favourite moment of the day is….. Sunset Cala d’Hort.
I love to eat…. Bullit de Peix (a kind of deconstructed paella only from Ibiza)
I love to drink…. Nothing beats a jug of Cava Sangria on a hot summer’s day.
I love to swim…. Punta Galera
I love to dance/play…. DC10… still the best of Ibiza clubs and Blue Marlin
My favourite island hang out is…. Can Terra
My Island playlist sounds like………. The sounds of Jon Sa Trinxa and Jose Padilla on SoundCloud for the true sound of Ibiza
My favourite Island memories are….. 2001-2003 when house music ruled and there were no rules!
Don’t leave the island without…. Sid Shanti’s Ibiza Chilli range. Hotter than July!
I’m whispering this island secret to you…. Come back in the winter and see what the real Ibiza is about!
