Interview by Dan Prince

To the thousands of people reading this magazine, the word DUBLIN conjures up images of drinking pints of Guinness in back street Irish pubs – what is with the name?

Haha! Why we are called Dublin is our little secret that for now, we keep to ourselves. There is of course an explanation and who knows, one day we may reveal it! Nevertheless, it is a magical and charming city that we love to visit whenever we can.

You are two of the rising stars on the island, who were the artists that first flipped you onto electronic music?

Raul: For me, it was the likes of Daft Punk, Frankie Knuckles, Cassius, Front 242, Groove Armada and Henrik Schwarz…among many others.

Juanma: And for me, from a very early age I was inspired by the music of John Digweed, Paul Oakenfold, Sasha, Chemical Brothers, Danny Tenaglia and Masters At Work. 

Many artists dream about playing the big Ushuaïa stage here in Ibiza. Why do artists say it is the greatest stage on earth to play?

You just have to see it! For an artist, when you stand on this stunning open air setting with it’s flawless production of the best lighting, sound and pyrotechnics on every show, well, it just completely engulfs you. It is an indescribable sensation! It is impossible to describe that feeling you have when you are on the stage in front of that huge audience playing the music you love…and everything just clicks. It is an amazing experience.

Why is Ibiza so special to you? 

Ibiza is not only the centre of the electronic music world; it is also a completely magical place. An island where you can make friends of many nationalities and cultures who are all mixed together in total harmony. The Ibiza landscapes, beaches, cliffs and spectacular sunsets are just some of the reasons we are in love with this jewel of the Mediterranean. Sites such as Es Vedra, Las Salinas, Tagomago, Cala Gracioneta and Cala Comte are also some of the places we can switch off, admire and recharge our batteries.

What is going on studio wise with you guys at the moment? 

The last few months has seen a few of our releases through the label Solar Distance, our favourites being ‘Mom’ and ‘Papalon’. We have been really busy recently, loads going on and we are about to share a new EP with you all…

Be brave guys! What is each other’s best skills as a producer?

Raul: I love his feel and finesse he brings to the mix; it compliments my style really well I think. Plus, Juanma is the best person to play b2b with. 

Juanma: What I like about Raul is the connection I have with him when it really matters. In many ways we are like day and night, but when we speak about music, we are one.
