A new series set in Ibiza, White Lines, is coming to Netflix this month. When the body of a famous Manchester DJ is found on the White Isle two decades after his disappearance, his sister (Laura Haddock) returns in search of answers. The story unfolds in the Spanish island’s criminal underworld, and its world-famous nightclubs. The series comes from the creator of popular crime drama/thriller Money Heist, Álex Pina, and will land on Netflix on 15th May. The cast also includes Marta Milans, Juan Diego Botto, Nuno Lopes, Daniel Mays and Angela Griffin. As soon as I read the script, I just knew,” says actor Daniel Mays, remembering his first encounter with Netflix mystery-thriller White Lines. “I got to the scene with the banana, the cocaine and the dogs and that was it: I was sold.” In the eagerly-anticipated new show, which is already being hailed as the hit of the summer, Mays plays Marcus – a washed-up, 40-something DJ living in Ibiza who dabbles in drug-dealing to make ends meet. In episode one, we see Marcus’ supplier deliver a giant, inflatable banana full of cocaine to his house. As Marcus tries to move it out of sight, the banana splits, leaving a trail of coke across his garden. Moments later, Marcus’ dog starts to lap up the powder, before feeling the inevitable effects – and later collapsing.

Firm favourites here at #baliclubbing HQ, Audiojack return to the scene of the crime armed with two huge progressive house weapons of dancefloor destruction. This time round they come in the form of Nick Curly’s 8 Bit record label and the timing of the collaboration couldn’t be more perfect. Their tunes have been popular around Bali, that’s a guarantee due to their sound fitting in perfectly with Bali’s late night music trend being progressive and tribal since the early double 6 and beachside raving days. Auiojack’s sound always take a bit more a percussive twist than most of the usual progressive sounds in recent times while getting a little more intelligent, deeper and emotive – perfect! More please Audiojack as two new tunes from these guys is never enough. DRW 10/10

Offering an immersive montage of stories that pay tribute to Ireland’s idyllic vistas, the multifaceted producer’s breath-taking LP echoes a tenacious dedication to his craft.

On 30th April at Düsseldorf’s drive-in cinema, World Club Dome, hosted two drive-in parties with 1000 guests at each. In an area the size of two football fields, 500 cars with a driver and one passenger allowed in each arrived to catch sets from DJs Plastik Funk and Le Shuuk, who played in front of “the world’s largest hydraulic screen” and accompanied by CO2 and fire cannons and a laser show. You can watch the full set here. Car windows had to stay shut during the event, while the music was transmitted through their radios.

Well, Peggy Gou understood the concept and decided to share what she’s listening to on lockdown with Vogue. “This pandemic has made me realize so many new things it would be impossible to list them all, but I can say that I’m very grateful to have had the time to connect with who I really am, she said to Vogue, “Now is the time for me to do all the things that I wanted to work on before, but wasn’t able to because of my busy schedule.

The first look at Stardust, an upcoming film about David Bowie, is available to watch now. The film is set in 1971 around the time Bowie first visited the USA and was inspired to invent his Ziggy Stardust alter ego, telling the story of that specific section of the artist’s life rather than a full biopic. It stars Johnny Flynn as the lead, Marc Maron plays his publicist Ron Oberman, and it is written and directed by Gabriel Range. Range said: “I set out to make a film about what makes someone become an artist; what actually drives them to make their art. “That someone is David Bowie … Someone I only ever saw at a great distance, behind a mask; a godlike, alien presence. Even in his perfectly choreographed death, he didn’t seem like a regular human being.” David Bowie’s son Duncan Jones indicated the film has not been approved by the artist’s family.
