Seth Troxler first arrived in Ibiza 10 years ago, a young man of Midwestern origin enchanted with the island's dazzling beauty, freewheeling artistry and endless party swirl that swept revelers into extended tears through the beach parties and dark clubs pumping out house, techno and that distinctive Ballearic sound.
Now, as a ten year resident artist of the island's legendary underground techno mecca DC-10, Troxler is firmly rooted in the Ibiza scene. When Billboard Dance catches up with him, he's on the couch at his place on the island, enjoying a glass of wine with his parents -- who he moved to Ibiza from their native Michigan so they could be closer to him.
Troxler himself make nearly constant departures off the island while on tour, and recently landed in London, where he and producer Phil Moffa erected their immersive art installation Lost Souls of Saturn as part of the Saatchi Gallery's Sweet Harmony: Rave exhibit exploring the birth of dance music and the impacts of rave on youth culture. The show is on at Saatchi through September 14.
