#067 LIVE from IMS Part 3: Johannes Goller

This is final part of our series of podcasts recorded at the International Music Summit in Ibiza, better known as IMS.

Cocoon was a the first party to bring Techno to Ibiza. Sven Väth was a huge name in 1998 but bringing the real sound to what, up til that point, been a musical landscape that was probably best described as light-hearted was a big risk. But they made it work at twenty seasons later a legend had been born.

Johannes Goller was there from the very start, and despite youth and inexperience was soon the main man for Cocoon in Ibiza. He has the stories to prove it.

This was a wide ranging discussion covering Ibiza today, and Johannes' new party Trip, but going all the way back to the very first season of Cocoon and the challenges of bringing a fresh sound to the island.

We also discuss after-parties, local politics, the changing nature of Techno in the 2000s and beyond, and much else besides.

This was a great way to wrap up our IMS series. Next week we'll be back on a regular schedule.
