Interview: Andy McKay on Manumission and Ibiza Rocks

Fri 23.11.2007

Last month, after the dust had finally settled from the White Isle’s closing parties, Andy McKay, co-owner of the mighty Manumission, sat down for a chat with DJsounds’ Lorna Cole in Ibiza town. Here they discuss the past, present and future of the enduring party as well as its triumphant offspring, Ibiza Rocks. From their early Balearic beginnings in 1994 to partying Manumission-stylee at the then Ku club, now named Privilege and officially the world’s biggest club. From their move to Amnesia this year to forward thinking on the subject of AV/DJ technology and the super-success of Ibiza Rocks at Bar M. Andy’s been there and done that – and tells you all about it in this clip! Manumission closed its doors in Ibiza on 21st September and will be back at Amnesia for the summer of 2008. Words: LRC
