About the artist:
Electronic Music is the passion of Joe Landen. He is sharing this strong feeling for the music as a DJ and as the man behind “DIRTY MIND MUSIC - Your House Music Source”.

When deejaying, Joe Landen is taking you on a musical journey. Kicking off with some Deep House sounds, building to more pumping Tech House tunes from the underground, and dropping back into the sweet side of life. All tracks Joe Landen is playing are carefully selected and have this certain forward momentum to make your dancing feet happy.

Joe Landen discovered his passion for Electronic Music when he was 18 and started to collect party flyers. Shortly afterwards Joe established an international network of flyer collectors for exchanging the small hand-outs. For his communication design studies he moved to Stuttgart (Germany) and began to deejay, produce, and organise parties. He became well known with his final year project called "The Flyer Phenomenon" (, in German only), a website which is all about the subject matter of party flyers and which also reflects the history of electronic music. As a graphic and web designer he set up the TWINPIX design studio (, which had a number of customers from the nightlife scene, including the legendary M1 Club, for which he did the website for over 5 years. In 2006 he was offered the opportunity to spend six months in Amsterdam, fell in love with the city and shortly afterwards emigrated. There Joe founded the internet radio DIRTY MIND MUSIC as a side-project to establish a worldwide platform for quality house music. In 2010 Joe moved from A to B, from Amsterdam to Berlin, taking the radio to another level together with his Finnish wife Ulla Maria. Beginning of 2016 the radio had to close, but since then DIRTY MIND MUSIC is continuing as House Music Blog ( and Soundcloud streaming channel (

The Best House & Techno Parties 2016 in Ibiza

2016 is a very important year for the White Island as it will have the longest party season ever (from end of May to beginning of October). And it is the last year of the Number 1 House & Techno club in the world: Space. With the change of ownership from Pepe Rosello to the Ushuaia family, EDM will have a much stronger influence on Ibiza from next year on. So 2016 must be huge!

These are the best quality House & Techno parties in Ibiza:


Circoloco at DC-10 (Techno, Tech House, Deep House)
The iconic clown face is back! Irresistible for clubbers from all over the world - and for DJs the biggest honor, if you can play here. The careers of Tania Vulcano, Loco Dice and Luciano have started here. Circoloco is as DC-10 as it gets!
20 weeks from the 23rd May to 3rd October 2016.

Cocoon at Amnesia (Techno, Tech House)
Sven Väth is leading his party row into its 17th Ibiza season, making it one of the longest running club nights on the White Island. Here you will experience the essence of Techno, often with longer DJ sets. Its an institution on Ibiza!
19 weeks from the 30th May to 3rd October 2016.


Carl Cox - Music Is Revolution at Space (Techno, Tech House)
After 15 legendary years at club Space, Carl Cox is presenting his "Final Chapter", due to the changes of the club from next year on. With a duration of 15 weeks it will be the longest season known of Carl Cox in Ibiza. Oh Yes, Oh Yes! Do not miss this spectacular end of an era!
15 weeks from the 14th June to 20th September 2016.

Mosaic By Maceo at Pacha (Techno, Tech House)
Maceo Plex is having his first artist-led residency on the White Island with this new party row! He is presenting local DJ heroes and newcomers and is promising good music, interesting decor and lighting that fits the music (dark and warm). We are curious!
20 weeks from the 24th May to 4th October 2016.


HYTE at Amnesia (Techno, Tech House)
Last year HYTE established a great new Techno & Tech House party in Ibiza. And this year they are building up on this. It is a coproduction of Amnesia and the massive artist agency Artist Alife, so HYTE will once again be bringing some of the biggest names to the island over the coming months.
15 weeks from the 29th June to 5th October 2016.

Thursdays better a resting day :) Go to see the beautiful island and Es Vedrà (see image above).


Music On at Amnesia (Tech House)
Now in its fifth season, Marco Carola's Music On, is more popular than ever! In this party the Amnesia Terrace is the main floor. Its such an amazing feeling when the sunlight is more and more taking over the venue in the morning, while Marco is hitting the decks like a machine. For DIRTY MIND MUSIC the best party on the island!
18 weeks from the 3rd June to 30th September 2016.

Insane at Pacha (Tech House, Deep House)
Insane has established itself as one of the best underground parties in the cherry topped club in the recent years. And as a big surprise Insane is hosting for seven exclusive dates the legendary Vagabundos parties from Luciano and Cadenza (20th May, 10th June, 1st July, 29th July, 12th August, 9th September and 16th September).

17 weeks from the 3rd June to 23rd September 2016.

Solomun +1 at Pacha (Deep House)
Diynamic chief Solomun is back at the most beautiful club in the world, presenting his fourth season of Solomun +1. The concept is still the same: 2 DJs during the night, Solomun and a special guest. They often play then back-to-back later at night.

Artists To Watch: Dario D'Attis

Although Dario D'Attis is already quite some time in the electronic music biz, the Swiss DJ has become one of the hottest producers for Deep House and Tech House in the last months.

Dario has garnered an international reputation as being a great DJ and equally unique producer. No wonder that he is now releasing his tracks on quality record labels such as Defected, Strictly Rhythm and Toolroom.

The style of his productions can be described as infectious, fresh and dancefloor orientated. You can hear that his roots lie in the Garage and New Jersey House sounds, which strongly influenced Dario D'Attis in the 90s. And now he is combining all this to a very modern House sound.

The current productions of Dario D'Attis fit perfectly in my DJ sets, especially when switching from Deep House sounds to more pumping Tech House tunes. So Dario, keep up the good work, I am looking forward to your new output!

Some of my favourite tracks from Dario D'Attis:

Artists To Watch: Cristoph

Chris Costigan a.k.a. Cristoph caught my attention end of 2014 with an amazing House track called "101". Following his other productions it was quite clear to me that this guy from Newcastle (England) is a rising star!

His DJ sets and productions range from Deep House to Tech House, with forward pushing basslines and quality melodies. No wonder real music lovers begin to notice him. As a teen he already started to express his love for electronic music by experimenting with instruments and different production equipment. And he began to dj as alias CJ Costigan, playing a Progressive House sound.

In the meantime he is deejaying in the top clubs of this planet, is releasing music on quality record labels such as Defected, DFTD, Suara, Noir and Knee Deep In Sound and is even touring with DFTD.

I use a lot of tracks from Cristoph in my DJ sets, as they exactly match my kind of music: no boredom or melancholy, but a strong forward momentum, combined with interesting melodies.

Keep up the good work, Cristoph!
