AN up-and-coming DJ has earned the opportunity to play at one of Ibiza's most popular clubs.

Practicing his skills on the decks for the past 16 years, Earl Rafferty has been going from strength to strength with his DJ sets, club nights, and festival performances.

Performing as a resident DJ in St Helens, playing before Saints games, and DJing at regional club events, Earl has also gone on to perform at multiple stages at Glastonbury Festival and now has the opportunity to perform at the Bam-Bu-Ku beach club in Ibiza.

As Earl, who goes by the stage name of 'Earl Raff', has become increasingly known in the regional music scene, he has recently been working alongside the 'North Collective' promoters.

Based in North Wales, North Collective hosts various events across the North West and aim to support up-and-coming DJs with exciting opportunities.

With North Collective feeling that Earl has "made some noise" with his online mixes and social media content, the promoters said that it was an "easy choice" to put him on their upcoming bill in Ibiza.

Following a summer of sold-out shows, the promoters have now announced a selection of 'Poolside sessions' at the O Beach-owned Bam-Bu-Ku in September, with Earl taking up a prime slot.

Earl, 26, from Windle, said: "I’m so excited to be back over in Ibiza to DJ, it’s been a few years since I’ve had any sort of opportunity like this and I’m so grateful for Nathan Turner and the North Collective team.

"I feel like things are finally falling into place with everything, I’ve really worked hard to make a lot of things happen and getting my head down with music.

"I just want to get to the top and I’m doing everything I can necessarily to make that happen with each of these opportunities being just one step closer to where I want to be."
