The Brief

To commemorate Radio 1’s annual weekend in Ibiza, the station put on a three-day celebration packed with over 70 hours of dance on Radio 1’s live schedule, and the world’s biggest nightclub on Sounds made up of 5 rooms housing some of the station’s best dance content. We were asked to produce content for Dance Party with Annie Mac, Pete Tong, and Dance Anthems with MistaJam.

The Solution

We developed and produced brand new DJ sets from Disclosure, The Blessed Madonna, Jayda G, and Four Tet. We had filmed sets from Annie Mac and Pete Tong b2b Bonobo, which were streamed on BBC iPlayer. A special edition of Radio 1’s Dance Anthems featured PAs from Becky Hill and RAYE alongside brand new mixes from the likes of Jax Jones and Duke Dumont.
