Ibiza Global radio station launches in the UAE with shows from some of the world's top DJs

'It is time the UAE was home to a radio station to reflect and direct the huge demand for electronic music that exists here'

A trip to the White Island may have been off the cards for most people in 2020, but you can now enjoy the sounds of Ibiza here in the UAE.

Spanish radio station Ibiza Global Radio 95.3FM has launched in the UAE and will feature weekly shows and mixes from some of the world’s biggest DJs.

Expect to hear tracks by the likes Claptone, Sasha, Maceo Plex, John Digweed and international house label Defected, alongside a host of local DJs.

There will be weekly shows from DJs Frederick Stone, Jixo and Danz, Hoolz and Naswari, and the station will be focused on promoting rising local talent.

Clint Maximus, who has appeared across more than 800 radio broadcasts, has been named as the host of the Morning Sounds show, which will be on daily from 6am to 10am.

“It is time the UAE was home to a radio station to reflect and direct the huge demand for electronic music that exists here,” says Theo Makris, managing partner at Ibiza Global Radio UAE.

“The current musical offering on our airwaves includes largely ‘safe’, chart-topping tracks, leaving a large void for the vanguard club tracks of tomorrow so many are looking for in this region.”
