BARBARA TUCKER House music ascension

The DJs are saying it, the smiles on people’s faces are saying it…house music is back baby! As the first lady of house music, you must be very happy to see Ibiza grooving to the feel good beat once again after years of EDM drum rolls…?

I am at one with music as it can bring hope, inspire and awaken love in us all. But vocal house music is the foundation for this music and without there would be no others. We always come back home!

One of the undoubted Ibiza success stories of recent years is Children of the 80s. Why do people love this decade so much?

80s music I think was a place of rebellion, freedom and expression – and very colorful. It made you wanna sing and dance and I am honored to be able to celebrate it through songs.

Early in your career you were lucky enough to work with many great producers such as Tenaglia, Morillo and Vega. What were these guys like to work with?

Oh wow, let’s see. Mr Vega – a cool and warm vibe in the studio that brings out the passion. Mr Tenaglia – easy, calm and very inviting! Mr Morielllllooo – a ball of creative energy, a trailblazer who really connects with the vocalist. He’s bananas in a fun, musical way.

They say that the 80s is the decade that style forgot. When Barbara Tucker thinks of the 80s, who/what/ why springs to mind?

Haha! Prince, Michael Jackson, Pointer Sisters, Whitney, Eddie Murphy, Sly Stallone, Pat Benatar, Tina Turner, Flashdance, New Jack City, Beverley Hills Cop, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Œe Goonies and my favourite of all time…Star Wars!!! I will stop there as I am getting excited!

Everyone is talking about Glitterbox this summer, have you partied in the DJ toilets yet?

No I have not. NYC did that many years ago at places like Twilo, I’m a dancefloor person anyway. I wanna feel the pulse of the music!

And finally, an 80s song that gets you out of bed and dancing?

Anything by The Village People! Œey just do it for me! Catch Barbara Tucker at Children of the 80s at Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza on August 25th
