YDjou've seen the press releases, you've booked your flights and you've just about recovered from the journalistic hyperbole spam that is pre-Ibiza season hype. Well enough of how some jobsworth in a London office describes being off it in the middle of Privilege's Coco Loco whilst pretending you can afford a drink with your new cosmopolitan friends that normally treat you like a leper.

Yes, enough of Hed Kandi coming out with this corker on their press release explaining why they dumped Eden, "The eleventh hour relocation was decided upon following the need for more Space (sic) to fully accommodate the exciting extra programming Hed Kandi has planned for this year's Ibizan excesses.". "sic", I think they missed a k off the end of that somewhere and NO, not that K either you loser.

Anyway, we digress, the whole point of what I'm saying is that you can't trust anything you read by these people, instead it's much better to hear it from the horse's mouth, yes the DJs themselves, I mean they're hardly gonna tell you how good their party is or how ker-rayzeeeeee they are, are they??

See here's the best/worst mixed bag of redundant plate spinners (bar Nick Curly) you're likely to find, giving you a brief lowdown on the madness (see I couldn't help but hype it!!) that will be Ibiza 2009. Vamos!!!!!!
