Philipp Straub aka Dj Felipe Just recently mentioned that Damian Lazarus was so far this season the most inspiring Djs for me while spending my summer on the lovely island of Ibiza! Well happy to announce that I have the pleasure playing with the maestro on Friday at Horst & Hannelore mit Damian Lazarus which will be a perfect warm up for this intense upcoming weekend! Don't miss out!;)

Philipp Straub aka Dj Felipe Leaving Ibiza tomorrow for some touring plans and very much looking forward welcoming my good friend Carl Cox in my old hometown again soon. We met in Austria the first time on my birthday in April 1995, when Carl was headlining the legendary Danube Rave. And what started there until today, 22 years later, remains a great friendship! Beside touring the world with him from time to time and working with him also on other projects like for #burnresidency, I had also the pleasure asking Carl sometimes to come back to play highlight gigs in Austria. Such as Gazometer in 1998, my 40.th bday at Flex Club in Vienna and many more in between in different parts of the country. So now 19 years later we come back to play this venue again and it will be something special for sure! Its the end of the summer season and we all go into different directions then for a while... So lets rumble together and show that Vienna is still a good place to party!

Philipp Straub aka Dj Felipe Got the new label shirts from our #frequencies compilation sent from fellow John Digweed so thought it's time to take one of them out a bit;) Proud being part of the Bedrock family! Quality times hanging with the Austrian gang at Destino while having dinner, then stayed a bit to listen to Bedouin and Guy Gerber during Rumors at Destino, onwards to Acid Sundays for some trendy hippie vibes and ended up at HEART Ibiza where Damian Lazarus smashed it! Best set I have heard in a while...

Philipp Straub aka Dj Felipe One last lazy weekend on the island before things slowly go back to the normal workflow for me. Summer is over. Also on the island. Where did all the time go? Looking back on the last month it was a great time overall, but Ibiza 2017 changed to much in a short time in my opinion. To much VIP culture, not enough focus / care of music, always the same djs repetitive in all of the venues, nothing new or inspirational really, overall to much going on and not enough people to please everyone. Also to much for the crowd on the island to manage all that. It's always nice to stay here over summer, meet all the great people & friends, surrounded by fantastic weather, the sea, beaches, delicious restaurants and all that. No doubt - I love it. Still. But it feels the first time that things got less successful also here overall. Generally speaking a bit less would be so much more. The magic on the island came out of the fun for everyone. Now it's a bit to much business driven...  

Anyway it was great reuniting with the burn gang, visit again some of the known events and spend time in the sun last week! Next weekend it's time to start touring again and I am happy to see my schedule is pretty packed until the end of the year. So it's slowly time to move on;)

Philipp Straub aka Dj Felipe Finally managed to see the legendary old Festival Club on Ibiza... or better to say whats left of it;) Once in the 70ies this was a massive venue with huge parties, all open air and for many thousand people. Including an own bullfight area. Now it's a wild mixture of human built structures, partly taken over from mother nature again and all covered with lots of graffiti art. Surreal!

Philipp Straub aka Dj Felipe Good bye Vienna! Looking forward a lot returning to Ibiza today! Well what to say... I regularly try to never post negative stuff as I simply don't want to have negative vibes around me, but this time I have to make a statement. Also to make things clear. Yesterday when playing Streetparade / Vienna Summerbreak final event in front of historical major hall I the first time in my 24 year long Dj career had to stop playing in the middle of my planned set. Simply as the low sound and volume was unacceptable as well as unmanageable! I even turned my monitor speakers into the direction of the crowd, but it was of course not a real solution. Neither the crowd nor myself had any chance to enjoy the music on a level lower than 80 Db. So I made an announcement on the mic, turned things off and left. This event particularly is held to represent our industry and local scene, which is a big shame! No one was interested in handling things properly nor in changing anything. Why do you guys then even do such an event? Only for some easy earned sponsor money? And why does the city of Vienna allow an event like that, but then not have it executed right? Look at gay parade Regenbogenparade which works well in town! Or internationally at the real Streetparade in Zürich which is epic! Everyone locally always complains how bad things are here, but no one makes a move to change anything which is really sad! For many years our scene in Vienna as well as Austria was massive, but it's not even a shadow of that anymore. I felt the responsibility to stand my ground and tried to make a little awareness for this situation with my move yesterday. If you make a music event first of all try to have things sorted for the music! Then also people have a chance to enjoy and come back! I am not naive to believe that something will change with my cancelled gig nor with my post, but maybe some people start to think. It's just not in my nature to always accept things when they are wrong. We can all change things to something better - and make the world a better place! Anyway apologies to the crowd and I hope they understand my point. Happy I could then dive deep into my music when playing an extended set at SASS Music Club with an indeed great sound-system and open minded crowd!

Philipp Straub aka Dj Felipe Every journey has an end and so also our great #burnresidency bootcamp finished! After another inspirational lecture with Carl Cox we had the final play-outs! All of the remaining contestants did a great job playing in front of Carl, Luciano (Official Page) and myself. For sure not easy to decide, but after a long internal meeting reflecting on everything we experienced together, we picked the final 3 who won a residency on the island for a month. Still competition is on and I am very curious who will do best! After an emotional farewell dinner I went to see my friends Paul Kalkbrenner and Simina Grigoriu who celebrated their wedding anniversary at DC10! True techno love couple❤️

Philipp Straub aka Dj Felipe Another highlight day of #burnresidency was when my amazing mentor colleagues Carl Cox and LOCO DICE joined our bootcamp together for a deep conversation about their careers! And as a surprise mentor buddy Luciano (Official Page) invited our group to join his gig at Pacha Destino in the evening which was perfect for the final contestants to forget the pressure for some moments! What a pleasure to work with all of these fantastic people!

Philipp Straub aka Dj Felipe Bootcamp adventures of #burnresidency continued with the big international press day! Always proud to represent such an amazing program with icons such as Pete Tong and Luciano (Official Page)! All of that would not be possible without the passionate contestants such as last years winner Lollino and of course don't want to forget mentioning the amazing big team handling all in the background. The day then finished with an epic surprise catamaran boat party and LOCO DICE playing a dope set! Quality times!

Philipp Straub aka Dj Felipe #burnresidency includes such an intense schedule with so many highlights daily that I didn't really manage to catch up with my socials last week... For example we went to the Space Ibiza museum / warehouse to record sessions for IBIZA SONICA RADIO. Also we had many visits from awesome industry heavy weights such as Pete Tong, Seth Troxler, Renaat Vandepapeliere and Mambo Brothers for lectures & masterclasses!  What a ride!

Philipp Straub aka Dj Felipe The silent before storm... Took the last week quite easy and got ready for #burnresidency which starts today! Looking forward working with the remaining contestants and in the end of this week we will have the finalists who win a residency on the island! Exciting! Meanwhile I enjoyed the beautiful nature a bit and only went out briefly to Resistance and Hï for meeting some artist friends as well as to Woomoon which has always such a great authentic spiritual vibe based around top notch music and art! Plus I finally found a good cinema in San An which was one of the only things I missed here so far...
