Ibiza‘s history is about to unfold right before our very eyes with Ibiza: The Silent Movie — and the soundtrack is locked in. Filmmakers have enlisted in Fatboy Slim to score the island’s untold story, which releases June 26.
Since the dawn of time, people from all walks of life have joined together to celebrate good vibrations. With Ibiza being one of the world’s most precious music resources, it’s about time the history is told in this sense. Legendary director Julien Temple has taken on the project, with the gods and goddesses of Ibiza as his muses.
Fatboy Slim explains the project in a press release:
Julien showed me what was beneath the surface, beneath that rich ochre earth. There are stories you wouldn’t believe: Phoenicians, Romans, Beatniks, even Nazis all dancing to the unique rhythm of a magic island… and how do you tell the story of one of the most colourful and unique islands on this planet? The answer is chew up the rule book, spit it out and set the resulting chaos to the most eclectic and evocative music the Island’s history has to offer.
The documentary film describes a story of “peace, sensuality, spirituality, ancient ways of life and new ways of living. All “interwoven with tales of brutal occupation, a spirit of tolerance and acceptance of others and the lives of many colourful characters, irresistibly drawn to Ibiza and the fight for the very soul of the Island.” This will all be set to riveting cuts from Fatboy Slim including “Right Here, Right Now,” “Praise You,” and “Weapon of Choice.”
Ibiza: The Silent Movie hits theaters across the UK later this month. For now, check out the trailer to see a glimpse of what’s in store.
