I would like to thank all that came out the the @60waves launch!
The ‘wave’ of support left us filled with an overflow of gratitude ..
KMA60 put out a statement yesterday that left people with a question mark and many of you reached out to me ..
In response to that, I wanted to share with you my personal statement, hoping that it may shed some light on our trajectory so far and what’s to come ahead ..
In it’s origins, KMA60 acted as both a music distribution company and a record store .. now the distribution and shop are becoming two separate entities .. and so we have the new name for the record shop .. 60 WAVES . .
This means I am no longer legally tied to KMA60, a company that I co founded / created with all my heart and now release with love – all with the intent of staying true to the vision that started me on this path ..
Although the distribution retained the name KMA60, the newly structured company is now owned by the Kuroneko Media Group ..
It was a necessary move to continue to grow while staying in line with my values for the shop – and honour the community we created as a whole .. Now with a different name, I still remain the proud owner of the record shop.
The shop 60 WAVES is a rebirth towards independence. We now have more freedom to evolve in support of the community that makes us .. and as always, we welcome all of you to continue to share our passion in what love most: music !
The artists that create the records we love and community supports them means everything to us – and we are thankful to you for trusting us to hold space for this exchange ..  in shop or online.
Moving forward, we have lots to anticipate, not only with events, but with new independent collaborations that deepen our curated selection of records.
Coming up, we have a a special collaboration with DNR London, meanwhile we continue bring you more exclusive records, and  soon some one-off pop up events starting in the year ahead & all in collaboration with the new and current faces that define the scene you know and love.
In the meantime, you can find us at the usual spot & of course Online under 60waves.com
All my Love,
Dana Ruh.

Out of interest we are reaching out to some clubs and promoters to hear more about their event and vision. We gonna mix it up whit what we find interesting. As the Ibiza season is full on, we reached out to Nacho, the artist director, who is in charge for Pyramid ibiza.

What does the name pyramid mean for the event?

Pyramid is coming from the cover of a record called Loco Ibiza acid  remix 1989. The group was called Amnesia.
The amnesia ibiza logo is a pyramid, too. So when we stated year 2018  we decid to be all conected calling the event pyramid and use the  triangle as inspiration.

Who is included into the project and what was the intention to start it?

Pyramid Ibiza is a party ownned by amnesia ibiza club. MarT and myself  are in charge of the event. My part of the work is creativity, rrpp,  visuals event decoration and bookings with the part of Ricardistas  music style.

When Cocoon Ibiza decided to finish his long residence at amnesia  ibiza we decided to continue what we learned with cocoon and focus the  event with the new era clubbers and acts.

What makes you different from other promoters?Whats your philosophy?

We are trying to do something different for the island. Since 1999 we  are doing events in Ibiza and we’re electronic music lovers. We fight  for good music. On the main room we go for real techno with new and  old school artist. At the terrace we go for all different kinds of  house music.

What can we expect in the future from you?

Music, love, respect and fun. Im coming from the past to show new  generations the future. My future vision is create events with good  music, live video art projections into organic materials (wood, wall,  iron, bamboo) and atmospheric lights. At the end less is more.
We are planning a tour around the world with pyramid, too.

Thank you Nacho for taking time to answer our questions… for a new blog, That might nobody notice … for now! :)
