The White Island is, and always has been, a magnet for hedonists. Its history reads like a history of pleasure itself. It is also a story of invasions and migrations, of artists and conmen, of drop-outs and love-ins. The Carthaginians established a cult to their goddess of sex there, and named the island after Bez, their god of dance. Roman centurions in need of a bit of down time between campaigns would go to Ibiza to get their kicks. And over the centuries, cultures around the Med have used the island either as a playground or a dump for the kind of people who didn't quite fit in back home, but who you'd probably quite like to meet at a party... This is the history of Ibiza, the fantasy island, framed by one long, golden summer where anything can happen - and it usually does.

When personal trainer Nicklas Behrends lands a summertime gig on Ibiza working for the son of one of the island's richest men, he thinks he's got it made. But after a wild night of partying, Nick has a harsh awakening. With a sharp headache and no memory, he finds himself in his client's villa, wearing a blood-soaked shirt--and is horrified to discover dead bodies in the house. Try as he might, Nick can't remember the events of the previous evening. Is it possible that he is responsible for the massacre? As henchmen and the police give chase, Nick hurries to fill in the missing pieces. But the truth may be worse than he ever could have imagined.
Once a fabled pirate garrison, the island of Ibiza gained its reputation as a countercultural hotbed of adventure seeking bohemian dropouts during the 20th century. Eventually this crossroads of experimental musicians, “hippie trail” travelers, and tourists looking to party turned Ibiza into the epicenter of electronic music that it is today. Pioneering electronic music DJs from around the world make the island their home over the summer season, attracting an equally international party community. Eco tourists and nature lovers seeking the particular pleasures of Ibiza also flock in annually, as do a crucial contingent of island faithfuls who return year after year to this tiny, charismatic, and insubordinate Mediterranean hub to live the Ibiza “experience” that goes way beyond the parties. With a foreword by Richie Hawtin, the world’s leading electronic artist and DJ, Shadows Across the Moon explores the social and cultural history of Ibiza and its nocturnal playgrounds. It is the first and only book to cover the entire fascinating and unique history of dance and counterculture in Ibiza, and vividly describes the artists, sunset drummers, shamans, DJs, outlaws, psychedelic evangelists, politicians and hippie organizers who gradually shaped the island’s party landscape into the hugely influential nexus it is today.
"Before I'd even stepped into the interview room I'd already resigned myself to the fact that there was no limit to what I was going to do to get that job. If it meant getting naked there and then in a room full of strangers, so be it. I was determined. The humiliation that would potentially await paled in comparison to the sweet reward of working in one of the world's largest party resorts. The shame that I would feel was going to be insignificant to the endless supply of drinks and girls that would await me in Ibiza at the end of the 90s." Want a disarmingly frank and honest account of what it was like working for one of the largest adult tour operators in the Mediterranean? What was considered naughty in the nineties would be scandalous today. But without smartphones, selfies, social media and tagging, there's no evidence of what went on and, now everyone has grown up and moved on, no one left to confirm it was true. More than twenty years have passed since my first season as a holiday rep in Ibiza, but the outrageous incidents and accidents are as fresh as last week. If you can remember being on one on these holidays, wouldn't you like to know what was going on behind the scenes? Let me pull back the curtain and start at the beginning...
The brilliantly funny cult novel about holiday reps in Ibiza. You arrive at the airport to be greeted by a sun-tanned clipboard bearer, there to make your dream holiday come true. But behind the smiles, the badge and the suspect command of the native lingo, what really goes on? Are they a happy, celibate team working for the benefit of their clients, or are they at each other's throats to get their share of backhanders, drugs and sleeping with holidaymakers (or each other!)? Exactly how low is resort manager Alison prepared to go to maximise her cash gains in her last season, and how low is first year rep and none-too-bright former male model Mario prepared to go to win the infamous "Competition"? Which reps will Alison get rid of? Shy Lorraine? Mickey, the first ever black rep? The clubbing mad and girl-crazy Scouse Greg? Or will it be Brad, as we follow him from bedroom to beach, stumbling across company business that he shouldn't?
This book represents the first attempt to step inside the holiday experience of young British tourists in San Antonio, Ibiza.

Electronica, Dance and Club Music by MarkJ. Butler Pdf
Discos, clubs and raves have been focal points for the development of new and distinctive musical and cultural practices over the past four decades. This volume presents the rich array of scholarship that has sprung up in response.

The essays are contributed by an international group of scholars and cover a geographically and culturally diverse array of musical scenes.
