GORDO, whose real name is Diamanté Blackmon, has proven to host some of the hottest parties around the world under the TARAKA brand, which has seen editions everywhere from San Francisco to Bulgaria, Amsterdam, Miami, Tulum, Detroit, and New York and even expanded into a GORDO track release in late 2021. As one of the US’s biggest house music exports, GORDO is set to bring their inimitable tech house sound to thousands of fans visiting Mykonos over the summer.

TARAKA is all about bringing back the underground rave feeling, so expect extended sets, surprise guests, and sounds that will transport visitors to another dimension, surrounded by idyllic views of the Aegean Sea.

Destino Pacha, Ibiza’s famous brand of music and hospitality, reopens this summer bringing in the world’s most sought-after names as they stay true to this year’s ‘Simply the Best’ theme. Featuring a state-of-the-art sound system, attractive production, creative decor, and a vibe that perfectly blends Pacha’s Spanish heritage with Greece’s unique energy, the venue will be the perfect summer setting for GORDO’s TARAKA take over.

Diamanté Anthony Blackmon has already helped to define a global musical movement, but now he’s doing it again: Gordo is a new house music alias from the artist previously known as Carnage. Blackmon has never been afraid to step into the unknown, and moving away from the hard-hitting, aggressive Carnage sound is certainly doing that. After rocking stages like Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Tomorrowland, charting #1 Dance Album in the US and working with artists like Migos, Mac Miller, ILOVEMAKONNEN, Little Pump and Tyga, Diamanté’s gone full circle back to where he started playing house music at Ibiza parties. Gordo’s debut single ‘KTM’ became an instant Top-10 hit on the Beatport Main Chart and with over 100 shows under his belt, his live sets are among the hottest dance parties of the moment. This new project is about educating younger fans who might not know about the roots of house music. It is a passionate, heartfelt beginning that will redefine house music for the next generation. From here it is all about making the music Diamanté wants to make. No going back.
