Ibiza Global Radio 95.3FM Launches in the UAE to Serve the Emirates' Thriving Electronic Music Scene
Posted on 2020 Oct,21

The UAE’s electronic music scene has a new leader, as Ibiza Global Radio 95.3FM arrives to entertain the increasing demand for a more cutting-edge and pioneering sound.

Internationally regarded as a trailblazer for the electronic genre – and a music-led culture more than a radio station – Ibiza Global Radio has been brought to the region at a critical time for the currently paused nightlife and events industry, as misplaced partygoers look to virtual resources to fuel their musical escape, and the emirates’ reputation as a world-class clubbing destination remains strong.

“It is time the UAE was home to a radio station to reflect and direct the huge demand for electronic music that exists here,” says Theo Makris, Managing Partner at Ibiza Global Radio UAE.

“The current musical offering on our airwaves includes largely ‘safe’, chart-topping tracks, leaving a large void for the vanguard club tracks of tomorrow so many are looking for in this region.”

And Ibiza Global Radio’s emergence is about more than just pressing play on the world’s most refined electronic music, to be absorbed by educated UAE ears. The station’s passionate team is said to place just as much importance on becoming a platform for local and rising talent, and uniting a community of likeminded producers, DJs and listeners, as it does on curating an exceptional track list.

Ibiza Global Radio UAE broadcasts without interval on channel 95.3FM and will feature exclusive sets and interviews from international electronic heavyweights including Maceo Plex, John Digweed, Claptone, Sasha and Defected. The schedule also includes a long list of local DJs, with weekly shows and mixes coming from the likes of Frederick Stone, Jixo & Danz, Hoolz and Naswari.

Ibiza Global Radio will be broadcasting live across the UAE on 95.3 FM and online.
