The ÏU MAG Launch Experiences, HÏ Ibiza, Glitterbox, Ministry of Sound, Pacha, Glastonbury… The Melon Bomb journey began just 18 months ago after a chance meeting in one of Ibiza’s cool pop-up dining events. “I woke with a heavy head and vague recollections of suggesting we all join forces” chuckles Gray, the genius artist who designed the infamous MB logo. Two parties later and after a guest spot from Juan Corbi, the foursome was complete, enabling the guys to make Ibiza their own. “One of the things I love about Melon Bomb is how organic it is” admits Santiago, the producer married to musician Lovely Laura. “There was no long term aim, just a desire to put on great parties for our friends.” And Ibiza has gone crazy for them. “Everybody leaves our parties saying how special the family vibe is and that’s something we have to build on” says Reynolds, the chirpy Ushuaïa resident from the Wirral. Musically they fit perfectly as Corbi, who was brought up on early Detroit techno readily agrees. “We all have our own individual styles but are not too far apart. There is always an essence of real soul running through our music and an obvious connection.” In an era where our precious island is bombarded with imported superstar DJs, it is such a relief to finally find four Ibiza artists who look certain to make the step up to main stage stardom. Just watch them fly.
