The formation of Pig&Dan may have been an unusual one, but was no doubt fate. The two crossed paths on Mallorca back in 1999 when Dan hopped on a flight to the island to see his sick mother, and this is where he begins his first-ever encounter with Igor. Since then, Pig&Dan have achieved an amazing back-catalogue of releases on labels including Soma, Plus8, Terminal M, Diynamic, Bedrock, Drumcode and most recently Truesoul. In this Mallorca Electronic Music Travel Guide by Pig&Dan, they reveal their favourite spots on the Balearic island for you.
Now, more than 20 years later, the renowned duo recently collaborated with Gregor Tresher for a powerful 10-track album “Soulcatcher” on Truesoul Records. A great soundtrack for reading this article and discovering new places.
