The undisputed champion of the poolside party has made Thursdays red-hot at O Beach Ibiza. Bringing a loved-up unifying dancefloor vibe to the waterfront beach club, DJ Spoony, with strong support from DJ Cameo, Grant Collins, Sam Dungate and the percussive skills of Jack Bullock, take us on a journey through UK garage, hip hop and R&B, and house classics – and, of course, expect the unexpected with wild aerial and acrobatic performances above the pool!
The shows are centred on its ‘Peace Officers’, who are on patrol throughout the club ensuring everyone is dancing! If you are found to not be dancing or having fun, you may find yourself in the dancefloor jail or being issued a ticket! Expect the riotous party police, rescue helicopters and dancing detectives. O Beach is famed for “not inventing the pool party, but perfecting it” and perfected it it has! Bringing in clubbers from all over the world with the magnetic pull of its iconic 600-square-metre pool, the iconic daytime venue has hosted some of the island’s most unforgettable parties over the years.

What was the idea behind your residency ON111?
We started the event as the place to hear all the best music that’s not always represented in Ibiza: UK garage, R&B, hip hop, Afrobeats and soulful at ‘one’ event.
Three classic records we will hear at your party this summer…
Right Before My Eyes – N’n’G feat Kallaghan. Never Too Much – Luther Vandross. Temperature – Sean Paul.
What do you love about O Beach?
The freedom to play whatever I like. The crowd is so mixed, young, experienced, black, white, brown, straight, gay – therefore my music can reflect this.
From the glory days on Kiss FM with the Dreem Teem to Radio 1 and now Radio 2, radio has always been an important medium to you…
Radio allows me to express myself in a different way from being behind the decks. For dance music it means we can share the best sounds of now to thousands and millions of people in an instant.
Best-ever night in Ibiza?
’99 – the glory days of UK garage, Dreem Teem at Bar Summun in San Antonio Bay. What a venue – and I still have a recording of me singing Woman Trouble (badly).
And finally, you’re a Liverpool supporter. Tough season?
Agghh, the interview was going so well! It was poor by our standards – we’ll come back strong next season!
