Interview: Jon Sa Trinxa in Ibiza

Wed 04.02.2009

Ibiza’s summer may still be several months away but posters for its opening parties are already popping up around the island. So whet your appetite for the season ahead with this clip featuring a true Balearic success story – Jon Sa Trinxa (aka Jon Sa Trincha, aka Jonathan Grey). Jon first visited Ibiza in the late ‘80s and returned on a permanent basis in the early ‘90s to look for work. A run of bad luck then turned to romantic good fortune and, as he explains, he was soon DJing at the blissful Sa Trinxa bar, overlooking the stunning vista of Salinas beach. Jon has since gone on to become an institution at Sa Trinxa and a guru for all things Balearic. With a musical palette that spans everything from chill-out and ambient to disco and deep house, he has furthermore DJed all over the island and released a string of compilations, including 2008’s Balearic Beach Session. In this footage, we catch up with Jon during a busy weekend at a range of locations such as Sa Trinxa, Pikes hotel and Azuli’s secret beach party. Words: LRC
