  • Ziggy

    Ziggy
    (Artist, Malta)

    Born and raised where all dance music scene has it’s roots in Malta. My interests in music started at the age of 14 where I used to assist resident DJ’s at a local near by club where I got my first taste of playing on deck’s.

    At the age of 17 I purchased my first personal deck’s and began practicing at home especially after a night of clubbing closely admiring local DJ’s playing at various events which inspired me to pursue my love for music further.

    My interests in music grew with me and at the age of 18 I enrolled in a course of 2 years held by local DJ Joseph Armani. Needless to say this was a gateway to a great start in my DJ career which have lead me to where I am so far.

    My style of music is a mixture of electronic house and re-works, mixing melodious funky house with electronic beats, reflecting my personal favorite artists.

    ‘Rules’ for this career are to love the music & the crowd. Be dedicated, work hard, keep up to date & always keep your feet on the ground!

    Tenishia

    Tenishia
    (Artist, Malta)

    5 Years in a row ranking in the DJ MAG top 100, Tenishia hold their own as the most successful DJ/Producer in Malta, selling arena shows and appearing everywhere from TV to mobile phone adverts. Winners of ‘Best Newcomer Award 2005’′, ‘Best Live Performance 2005’, ‘The International Recognition Award’ and 3 years in a row ‘Best Dance Tune Award’ at the Malta Music Awards, Tenishia has proved to be an Icon to the young generation taking the clubbing scene by storm and building up enough fans to hold their own Tenishia in Concert events.

    With numerous releases on Armada Records that have blasted the speakers of various clubs and events around the planet, Tenishia have gained a solid international fan base that is constantly demanding them to travel the World with their performances. They are know for their particular sound in Progressive Trance and also Chill Out productions which also lead to an IDMA Award nomination in 2011 at the WMC in Miami.

    Tenishia’s story started in Summer 2004 when Joven Grech and Cyprian Cassar met through mutual friends and joined forces for music production after a discussion about music in a small bar. Joven was already into djing for a few years while Cyprian had a perfect ear for good melodies due to his classical music background of playing the piano and other musical instruments from a very young age. Eventually their work in the studio paid off as they signed their first production to Armada in 2005, following with three big hits with Kirsty Hawkshaw on Armada’s top label Armind. One of which was ‘Outsiders’, which made it to big compilations such as ‘Ministry of Sound’ and ‘Cream Ibiza’ , got chosen as ‘One for the Weekend’ on BBC Radio and transformed Tenishia from national to international stars as their music got to the hands of some of the World’s biggest names. Even though, Tenishia were already climbing the success ladder back in the home country of Malta with numerous gigs, including a booking at the MTV Summerdance Event and Creamfields, Tenishia got their biggest breakthrough in Malta when the World’s number one DJ, Armin van Buuren introduced them on stage while playing their already popular radio track ‘Burning from the Inside’. This sealed the deal, as it was the first time ever that such a big DJ played a locally made track which led to a whole revolution of a Club DJ on the island of Malta by inspiring young talents and already established DJs into music production.

    (Artists, Spain)

    Christian and Alan Anadon, better known as the Mambo Brothers, were raised in the clubbing utopia of Ibiza. As the sons of Cafe Mambo founders, they were exposed to the world’s best DJs at a young age and began soundtracking the iconic sunset spot.

    The pair started their journey DJing at Café Mambo’s sister bar Savannah, warming up for legends like Roger Sanchez and Carl Cox. Their style of music takes cues from across various house sub-genres, inspired by artists such as Pete Tong, Masters at Work, Jason Bye and more recently Jamie Jones, Kö lsch, Luciano, Nic Fanciulli, Andrea Oliva or MK. Their skill to read the dance floor took them away from their home turf, DJing internationally at ‘Mambo On Tour’ events, that have now taken place in more than 60 cities across the globe, including Amsterdam, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Dubai, Doha, London, Miami, Monaco, Moscow, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Seoul, Tokyo and many more.

For further information about Mambo Brother’s summer schedule check out their tour dates below.

    Back home in Ibiza, the sibling’s diverse style as selectors led to slots at Space, Sankeys, and Ushuaïa, with regular sets at Pacha. In 2016 Mambo Brothers had the honour of playing the Space Closing party, which paved the way to their greatest feat to date. In 2017 the islanders born-and-bred landed a historic residency at the new state-of-the-art venue Hï Ibiza, where they curated the The Club on Sundays. Christian and Alan hosted each week, joined by some of the industry’s hottest names; Doorly, Felix Da Housecat, Danny Howard, Idris Elba, and The Magician to name a few. On the 11th of June of this year, Mambo Brothers made their long-awaited debut playing at Café Mambo Ibiza and welcomed longtime friend and all-time hero Roger Sanchez as a special guest for the first edition of this monthly event hosted by the brothers. At the end of May, UK House Label: Defected Records kicked of their 21 weeks of Defected Ibiza and invited Mambo Brothers for the opening party at nightclub Eden, to see them return each month until October.

    Following their release on Toolroom Records in March or 2016, Mambo Brothers went on to put out their momentous, two-track EP on Nic Fanciulli’s Saved Records. ‘Super 800’ and ‘Eso Es’ exploded onto dance floors worldwide and welcomed huge critical acclaim in this year. In the past two years the boys’ have earned support from taste-making heavyweights Pete Tong, Annie Mac, MistaJam and Danny Howard, who premiered ‘Control’, via Armada Subjekt on BBC Radio1. The track later went on to become one of Pete Tong’s prestigious Top 10 ‘Tunes of the Year 2017’, turning industry heads and cementing the Mambo Brothers as diverse and dynamic producers.

    Early 2018, just fresh after their Asia tour, Mambo Brothers returned to Saved Records with their signature Balearic sound in the form of ‘Kasai’. This 9-minute long production with its far-away vocal, dreamy chords and cosmic buildup was also accompanied by a remix from Dutchman Franky Rizardo. To add more magic to the Summer days ahead, Mambo Brothers followed up their debut release ‘Momento’, that landed back in 2016 on Toolroom Records, with ‘Sundogs’ on the 18th of May, just in time to kick off the Ibiza season.
