Q&A: Sarah Main


Bringing some much needed Ibiza spirit to Paradise as the nights get colder, we welcome Sarah Main for an all-night Back To Ours set this Friday.
Entry is free before 10.30pm and just £5 after. Sign up to the guestlist here:

A long established and truly versatile artist, Aussie-born Sarah honed her hypnotic House music sound during many years on the White Isle as main room resident for Pacha, a regular guest at Space Ibiza and a two year residency at Ushuaia. In 2006 Sarah won 'Best Ibiza DJ' at the Ibiza DJ Awards, and was cited by Frankie Knuckles as his favourite female DJ, with Pete Tong and Erick Morillo nominating her as their favourite warm-up DJ. 

Having played clubs and festivals all over the world, taking her Mobile Disco party brand with her, Sarah is now residing in London. We're over the moon to welcome her Back To Ours this Friday, and she was kind enough to shoot the breeze with us ahead of her set...

1) Your house is on fire - you can grab one vinyl and one vinyl only - what would you take?

My Stevie Wonder- Songs in the Key of Life album. The last time I was in London was for his concert in the park which was EPIC. Stevie's the man!

2) We're big foodies at Paradise. When you eat out, what's your favourite dish to find on a menu?

I always choose a good fish dish so I guess I'll be choosing the sea bass on Friday night when we dine before my set. I have heard from reliable sources that the food is quite delicious at Paradise.


3) Anything big happening in the coming few months you can talk about? New releases, tours, festivals?

I'll be heading back to the homeland; Sydney, Australia early next year for a mini tour which has been a long time coming - six years to be precise. I almost forgot what vegemite was!

Studio time here in London is on the agenda for the coming months. Winter time for Ibiza dwellers is the only time we really get anything done so I'm planning to make the most of my time here in London Town. I will also be throwing some of my Mobile Disco parties in London over the winter so stay tuned for that. You can check out my Mobile Disco shows that air on Ibiza Global Radio here:

4) What's your cocktail of choice? Or are you a beer/wine/non-alcohol kinda girl?

Nothing beats a fine Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlbrough region of New Zealand. For cocktails I would always go an Espresso Martini to give me an extra little perk.

5) On the rare day off from the studio and DJ schedule, what do you get up to?

Ha! Well this depends where I am to be honest. As I've just moved to London I'm pretty overwhelmed with choices but wherever I am it’s always nice to do something in contrast to the nightlife. Keeping the balance is important…. I've finally learned! So anything in nature, from beach days to mountain hikes. I think here in London it will most probably be walks in the parks and forests. So rock 'n roll!

However I'm not averse to the odd bit of fun so hanging with my mates is also high on the agenda when I have free time!
