The station will broadcast without an interval on channel 95.3FM with a focus on local and rising talent as well as uniting a community of likeminded producers.
Spanish radio station Ibiza Global Radio 95.3FM has been launched in the UAE. The station will broadcast without an interval on channel 95.3FM and feature exclusive sets and interviews from international electronic heavyweights including Maceo Plex, John Digweed, Claptone, Sasha and Defected.
The schedule also includes a long list of local DJs, with weekly shows and mixes coming from the likes of Frederick Stone, Jixo & Danz, Hoolz and Naswari.
The station will focus on becoming a platform for local and rising talent, and uniting a community of likeminded producers, DJs and listeners, as it does on curating an exceptional tracklist.
The first in a series of UAE presenters for the station is Clint Maximus, who will host the Morning Sounds show, daily from 6 am to 10 am.
Maximus’s music career spans 25 years and includes a Grammy nomination for Best Remix of the track Hold On by JES, along with his radio show The Edge – which has surpassed 800 broadcasts across 30 global stations.
Clint has shared the stage with the big names in electronic music, including Major Lazer, Avicii, Tiësto, Paul Oakenfold and Markus Schulz.
Commenting on the launch, Theo Makris, Managing Partner at Ibiza Global Radio UAE, said: “It is time the UAE was home to a radio station to reflect and direct the huge demand for electronic music that exists here. 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.”
