ADE SPECIAL – PLLEK LIVE STAGE X ASPIRATIONS
Pllek Live Stage & Aspirations present:
Time: 22.00 – 05.00
Hot on the heels of our annual Balearic Special, Aspirations is once again teaming up with Pllek for a special ADE edition. Together, we will bring you a night of unique Balearic sounds, w/ Phil Mison, Tako Reyenga, Rutters & Marcelo Umana and a special live performance t.b.a.
The Balearic beat was named for its popularity among the European nightclubs and beach rave parties that evolved in the mid 1980’s on the Balearic island of Ibiza. We’ve been in love with the sun-drenched Balearic sound for quite some time and can’t wait to share this love with you at Pllek’s beautiful and brand new stage: Pllek Live Stage!
If you’re looking for something different to kickstart ADE, come down and celebrate the sound of summer with us.

Phil Mison is a London based DJ, composer and music producer who releases solo work under the name of Cantoma. Influenced by listening to legendary chill out DJ Jose Padilla, Phil started his DJ career at London’s Milk Bar in 1991, playing chilled Balearic warm up sets. A chance meeting there with Jose would lead to a two year residency at Ibiza’s Cafe Del Mar, sound tracking a thousand sunsets with his vast collection of sun kissed records. It was his sets there that led him to playat Full Circle, Bugged Out and to become Leftfield’s tour DJ.
Co-owner of Red Light Records store and probably Amsterdam’s ultimate digger and music connoisseur. This under the radar DJ and his store are for many peers an endless source of inspiration and amazement.
