Jon Sa Trinxa

01/05/2019 KC

  • Balearic

The man born Jonathan Grey forged a place for himself in Ibiza’s rich musical history with his eclectic and varied all-day sets on the beach at Las Salinas in the early 90s, becoming so entrenched in the culture, he almost had no choice but to take on the name of the beach bar where he’d built his reputation.

25 years on, he remains one of the island’s most recognised musical figures, maintaining his residency at Sa Trinxa and returning playing venues such as Space on a regular basis.

Come and see Jon in action for the first time at Spiritland this May.

Jon Marsh (The Beloved)

04/05/2019 KC

  • Balearic

Jon Marsh recorded and released music as The Beloved from Peel Session beginnings in 1985 until the release of 'X' in 1996. The project has been cryogenically frozen since then but is beginning to thaw, the catalogue having finally been prised from corporate clutches. Every mix of every track is currently being assembled and prepared for an internet rebirth, plus new material.

From 1992-2005 Jon regularly DJed all over the UK & Europe, plus the USA & Australia. He held monthly residencies at MOS and Fabric, as well as recurring bookings at mainstream and underground house clubs.

Parenthood curtailed the DJ work, but he occasionally resurfaces wielding his take on balearic: "Think eclectic style not flamenco somnambulists".

Jon's return to Spiritland will offer a scenic route through the unconventional.
