“Bringing together like-minded DJs and music enthusiasts to celebrate the sound that inspired us all, I believe that music is more than just a commodity; it’s an experience that should be shared and enjoyed together. A space where artists can express themselves freely, and you can immerse yourself in the music without any distractions.” Simon Field
Read the full interview from the chat I had with Soundrive not long ago from my collaboration with Jame Hurr and Georgia Meek on Vibe Like That to my vision for Basement.

There are so many great beach clubs on Ibiza for daytime clubbing, its virtually impossible to recommend one single beach club. Here are some of my favourites beach clubs with a slight biased focus on the music. This article will be updated.
Café del Mar
The original and probably best known places on the island. A classic place with amazing chill music. Among the resident DJ´s are Ken Fan who you really should go and check out on Spotify. Probably one of the most famous sunsets in the world.
THE place for Balearic music. This is probably where you are most likely to hear at least one classic house tune every hour. The list of famous DJs visiting the decks on this legendary place is unreal. Literally every named DJ has played here. Café Mambo Ibiza got their own profile on Spotify. You´ll find Café Mambo just next door to Café del Mar.
Amazing place for music – both night-time and daytime. Among my favourite DJs to resident here are Pablo Fuero. The kind of sounds you´ll hear at Alma Beach is very much the nomadic sound of international ethnic inspired house. Check out my Nomade playlist for a taste…
A classic Ibiza lounge place with amazing food and music. Want to highlight what DJs like Alex Kentucky has done for this place both in terms of DJing but also curation of the yearly compilation release.
Exhilarating entertainment and themed nights.
Striking the perfect balance between barefoot-chic and glitz and glamour, Nassau has become the beach club of choice for Ibiza’s in-crowd. It has a range of amenities on offer, so you will surely find something to suit everyone in your charter party, and it’s conveniently located on one of Ibiza’s buzziest beaches, Playa d’en Bossa.
Cotton Beach Ibiza is a really unique place both in terms of music but also food, music and location. Dont be surprised to find live band here or a combination of DJs and percussion.
Celebrity spotting and an extensive wine-list
With your yacht anchored in the bay, Cotton Beach Club’s exclusive tender service will bring you directly to the soft, white shore, where you can relax in a private gazebo or lounge on a daybed. From the beach, a flight of stairs leads you up to the popular terrace restaurant which enjoys spectacular views over the Balearic Sea.
Amazing place for music. Blue Marlin also got their own playlist curated by their own resident DJ. Blue Marin Ibiza Spotify Playlist. Blue Marlin is also a great place for night time outdoor clubbing with amazing DJs.
The Ibiza club experience in a beach party setting!
One of the hottest party destinations in Ibiza, Blue Marlin is popular during the day and into evening. The venue is a great place to take a swim, enjoy a light lunch or wind down with a relaxing massage from one of the club’s resident massage therapists. When the sun goes down, you can expect DJs and dancing.
The rustic setting of Amante, set on beautiful Sol D’en Serra Bay, is hard to beat if you’re looking for a chilled-out atmosphere where you can escape the crowds. Tucked into an idyllic little cove, Amante has a more secluded feel than other beach clubs which lends itself perfectly to lazy days that turn into unhurried evenings.
The original IBIZA playlist in Spotify is hosted and run by Simon Field. Established around summer 2015 and is still being curated by Simon Field. The playlist is responsible for and have been a great part in breaking artists such as CamelPhat and Meduza on Spotify.
Current tracklist on the playlist include tracks from all major dance and house artists.
