Since the 1970s Ibiza has developed a reputation as the party capital of the world, attracting hordes of revelers to its energetic entertainment options, from DJs playing electronic music until the break of dawn to performances by artists such as Arctic Monkeys, Lady Gaga and Sting. In June 2022, with an eye to making a world-class production facility available to visiting artists, producers and DJs for whenever inspiration strikes, global luxury hospitality brand Six Senses unveiled a recording studio featuring a Solid State Logic ORIGIN 32-channel analogue mixing console as part of a new extension to its Six Senses Ibiza resort.
The latest development at Six Senses Ibiza, a spa and wellness retreat located on the opposite side of the Mediterranean island from the riotous nightlife, encompasses a collection of spacious suites plus a restaurant, bar and live music venue. Collectively known as The Beach Caves, so named because the deluxe indoor/outdoor living spaces are reminiscent of a coastal cave, the complex was a collaboration between owner, architect and real estate developer Jonathan Leitersdorf and hospitality pioneer Ben Pundole.
The new recording studio, which is also accessible via a private entrance from the exclusive 3,300-square-foot Cave Royale suite, is the first of its kind in Europe, according to Danny Ariel, of retail and design firm D&D / AVARC, based in Israel. Ariel was the principal designer of the new facility, supplied all the equipment and oversaw its integration. UK-based studio architect Roger D’Arcy provided the facility’s acoustic design.
Ariel made the decision to install the SSL ORIGIN desk in consultation with Asaf Busidan, who handled the technical integration of the console and ancillary equipment, as well as the facility networking. “We wanted a world-class brand that was great value for money,” Ariel explains. “We knew that visiting artists would be happy to see the SSL brand. Plus, ORIGIN provides the pure sound quality and reliability of an SSL. On top of it all, it fitted the budget perfectly.”
