"The closing of el Chiringuito (Es cavallet) is fast becoming one of the most talked about closing parties of the season. For 3 years in a row now, resident dj's mr Doris, James Kameran and myself Andy Baxter, along with special guests Groove Armada, have made these events truly memorable."

"I hope you enjoy this exclusive mix that I recorded live, from the night between 7-9pm."

Biography

Andy Baxter is a DJ with the innate ability to read any dance floor. There is no finer example than his home base of Pacha Ibiza, where he has covered every genre of music over his ten-year stint as year-round resident and international touring artist. From Balearic sounds, hip-hop, disco and rare groove to deep, melodic tech house, 2012 saw an increase in demand for his main room sets, warming up for Defected, Cadenza, All Gone Pete Tong and Subliminal. Andy's constantly evolving technical skills led to a role as host of the Pioneer Lab on the rooftop terrace, demonstrating the latest equipment to visiting international artists.

Additional residencies include a fifth season with the legendary We Love... Sundays at Space, season number six with iconic Ibiza sunset institution Café Mambo, plus a twice weekly residency at high-end beach club El Chiringuito and on-island resident duties for luxury and VIP event specialists The Shop. His unique ability to read the crowd and diverse musical taste made Andy the first choice to play as the official resident for all 3 days of the inaugural Ibiza 123 Festival with Sting, Lenny Kravitz and Elton John amongst the biggest DJs in the world. After his 180 gigs in Ibiza this summer alone, it is difficult to find a harder working DJ in the game.

His uncanny ability to be able to deliver the right groove from sunrise to sunrise and from beach to Nightclub have earned Andy the award for the best Ibiza DJ and the prestigious Ibiza DJ Awards in 2012.

An unrelenting passion for new music also scored Baxter the enviable role of A&R scout for seminal label Defected, after head honcho Simon Dunmore spotted his ear for new talent in 2010. His extensive musical knowledge and constantly evolving technical skills have seen him tour the globe numerous times over and after rediscovering his passion for playing records, Baxter's own monthly event in Ibiza, The Vinyl Fix was born.
Throughout 2012, Andy has embarked on multiple new studio productions and he continues to present his radio shows of various mediums such as Ibiza Sonica and Resident Advisor. The off season will see Baxter touring the Americas, Australia, Asia and South Africa.

If the rapturous applause from his peers and fans during the DJ Awards are anything to go by, we present to you one of the most popular DJs from spiritual home of Dance. The true resident of sound for the real Ibiza.
