Carlo Lio ends the summer and knick off the fall with a massive series of new releases that include Bedrock, Mindshake, Mood Records and Saved that allow to say he’s one of the first producer in the game nowadays.
Ibiza by night interviewed Carlo, and it was an opportunity to talk about his relationship with Ibiza and the future projects!
Ibn-: So Carlo, how was your summer in Ibiza, and why did u decide to spend the summer here?
Carlo Lio: The summer has been great so far! I’ve always wanted to spend sometime in Ibiza, so I thought this year would be good since I played quite often.
Ibn: Are many years that you work in the island, how is your relationship with the island? And talking about your sets, which one was your preferred set in this summer?
Carlo Lio: Well compared to many artists on the island I have not been playing for that long. Only since 2010. But I have been visiting much longer. So my relationship is definitely very deep. I love everything about Ibiza, the island itself, the people and of course the vibe. So I really do feel super comfortable there. I think my favorite set from the island this summer was playing at Space for Carl Cox’s Night. Was def the best time I had at space over the years.
Ibn: You played everywhere in Ibiza, which is your favorite location on the island, and why?
Carlo Lio: Well it’s always very hard to pick just one because they are all so good. But I will have to say Space and Amnesia. The reason is I have never really had a bad time at either of these clubs. I always expect the best and that what I always get in return.
Ibn: Your future projects for next months
Carlo Lio: This week I have just had a release on Paco Osuna’s Mindshake Records.
On september 23rd I will have another EP released on Nicole Moudaber’s label MOOD. This is a collaboration project with “The Junkies”. First week of October I have a remix of John Digweed & Nick Muir on Bedrock as well as an EP on Bedrock in November. I think that it for the next couple months.
