dj-crops_howard-hillHoward Hill
Country of origin: UK
Current Residence: Ibiza
Genre of music: Balearic
About: Howard has been coming to Ibiza for around 18 years mainly for holidays and to play for a few private parties. About 5 years ago he came out here for the whole summer season playing in various beach bars, at the end of the season Space magazine named him ‘Best daytime DJ’. Since then DJ Howard Hill has moved to Ibiza on a permanent basis and held residencies and played at Atzaro Beach and Spa Hotel, Pikes Hotel, KM5, Amante, The Harbour Club, Sands, ME Hotel, Coco Beach and the newly opened Cala Bonita plus lots and lots of private villa and yacht parties, where he enjoys the chance to be creative and take the listener on a musical journey.
Favourite music moment in Ibiza: ‘My first experience of Ibiza was not the clubs but rather listening to Jonathan Sa Trinxa playing on Salinas beach. I remember late one afternoon, when it looked as though everyone was sleeping on the beach and Jonathan put on a particularly funky track and it seemed as though the whole beach leapt up and started dancing. I learned about the musical journey from Jonathan and I remember thinking at the time that I would like to do that too. I would say that one of my favourite events on the island is driving back from Salinas beach, across the salt water lagoons, as the sun is setting. It’s so beautiful and moves me every time.’
