And The Beat Goes On: Ibiza
Actor Jimi Mistry has worked with Gurinder Chadha, Roland Emmerich, Edward Zwick and Guy Ritchie, rejecting the Hollywood lifestyle to remain based in the UK. Now he has teamed up with director Steve Jaggi and filmed a love song to Ibiza called And The Beat Goes On.
Well-received at both the Ibiza International Music Summit and the recent Ibiza Film Festival, the film nails the two different sides to the island’s international summer scene, with a genuine and heartfelt appreciation of both.
Jimi Mistry, a British actor who grew up during the height of the rave scene in the UK, decides to journey to the Balearic island of Ibiza and unravel the complex musical history of the island, and find out for himself if Ibiza’s now spoiled reputation is deserved.
Starting his journey in clubs such as Pacha and Amnesia, a chance meeting with Island resident and multi-platinum producer Lenny Ibizarre ends with Jimi seeking out the island’s spiritual flip side. Along the way, Jimi meets DJ Alfredo before re-uniting the four DJs credited with exporting the Balearic sound to England – Paul Oakenfold, Nicky Holloway, Danny Rampling and Johnnie Walker.
Jimi’s journey ends with a mountain top full moon ceremony in the centre of the Island. The film features interviews with nearly two dozen world famous DJ’s and musicians including David Guetta, Danny Tenaglia and features appearances by dozens of musicians and artists including Andy Cato.
