Charlie Hedges presents Skiddle Podcast 005 - Guest Mix Purple Disco Machine

We've dedicated our latest podcast to the party capital of the world - Ibiza. Our host Charlie Hedges has been chatting to some of the key artists who will be playing on on the island this season, and as always she's delivered some of the best new house music.

Spotlighted as our artist of the month this time round is Josh Butler, who is gearing up for another residency at Tribal Sessions at Sankeys Ibiza this season. We've quizzed him on the upcoming summer plans and also featured one of his latest releases on Cajual Records.

We've got Intec label manager and Music Is Revolution regular Jon Rundell as our classic track selector. Ahead of the last Carl Cox at Space Ibiza season, we asked him about the difficult decision made by the team and asked him to pick a defining dance track that means a lot to him, unsurprisingly it brings back memories of an Ibiza experience.

To round things off this month, Glitterbox resident Purple Disco Machine has put together a mix for us. Filled with his signature disco grooves, it's a suitable showcase for the music that will make Space Ibiza come to life every Friday.

As well as all those features, we've got music from the likes of Gorgon City, Prok & Fitch, CamelPhat and Man Without A Clue

We're four episodes into our podcast series now and things are in full swing, Charlie has delivered another weekend-ready selection of house music from across the globe plus she's caught up with some of our favourite artists as part of our monthly features.

This time round we picked grime's biggest personality Big Narstie as our artist of the month and spoke to him about what life is like when touring schedules get busy, partying on the Skiddle bus and his role in the development of grime.

In the lead up to another busy festival season, we caught up with Circus founder Yousef to talk about his upcoming plans and we also asked him pick a classic house track (it's one of our favourites to date). This month's podcast is wrapped up by a big guest mix from Defected favourite Franky Rizardo, featuring music from the man himself, Lauren Lane, SEFF and DJ T.
