Sean Hughes

The Ibiza resident is set to play at The Apartment. We find out what's in store and what brings the big-hitter to the Middle East.

DJ feature

A resident at Cream in Ibiza, Sean Hughes knows his dance music. But what else does he know? Time Out made enquiries.

The single moment that launched my career was...
When I won a big DJ competition in Ibiza that landed me a job in a bar out there.

If I wasn’t a DJ, I’d probably be...
Working in some dirty warehouse, dreaming about being a DJ!

If I could be a resident anywhere in the world, I would choose...
Room IV at Timewarp in Frankfurt, Germany. The room is a glass dome that holds around 500 up-for-it clubbers, with a wicked sound system and a DJ booth that is right in the thick of it. It’s DJing heaven!

If I could only play one song for the rest of my life, it would be...
Impossible! Maybe I could get Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers to do a mega mix of about 100 tracks and call it one song – then I could survive!

If I could be another DJ I’d be...
In the C2C scratch crew; they’re a bunch of French guys that have won the DMC Crew competition numerous times and have a lot of fun with records. They’re just unreal!

My vice is...
Be nice!

The thing most people don’t know about me is...
I was on my way to becoming a professional swimmer until I discovered DJing!

I’ll retire when...
My ears fall off.

My favourite website for finding new tunes is...
Definitely www.disturbedbeats.com.

The thing I most regret is...
I don’t really regret anything – we only learn how to become better through our mistakes.

The happiest moment of my life was...
My mum calling me in Ibiza to tell me she was given the all clear from her cancer.

My favourite upcoming DJ is...
Miss Divine, a girl who is passionate about music for all the right reasons.

Sean Hughes plays letherebehouse at The Apartment on Thursday April 17 from 9pm-3am. Tickets Dhs85 or or Dhs35 for FACE card holders.
