as well as co-compiling & mastering most of the popular Blue Bar compilations. In may 2005, Massivan released his first solo album "Daylife", which marked a shift in musical direction, more towards jazzy, chilled house fueled by latin-beats. The second solo album "Massenwahn" came about in late 2006…. packed to the max with pure electro pop and psy-trance infused club sound. The same year, Massivan became resident dj for the "Gorgeous" night at legendary club Space Ibiza and mixed the "Gorgeous" compilation. April 2007 saw the release of "Wide", Massivan's third solo effort. "Wide" showcased more of a "downtempo-with-a-touch-of-jazz" sound, featuring several top notch studio cats/live musicians, and was accompanied by a string of highly acclaimed remix EPs (called "Wider" and "Widest"). The fourth Massivan solo album, "Family With 3 Hearts", got a worldwide release through Pschent records in may 2011, including the hit single "2 B @ 1 With The World" which made it onto a lot of prestigeous compilations.
Over the years, Massivan's music has been included several times on a.o. Hotel Costes and Buddha Bar, just to name the most famous. In late 2011, Ivan finished the production of another outstanding project for his own label imprint Pmusica: the album "Formentera" by singer Bea Luna was co-produced by Massivan with german drummer don Wolfgang Haffner, again featuring a string of first-call jazz musicians from around the world. In 2013, Massivan finished his latest longplayer called "Satisfied", released on Poets Club Records. Meanwhile, the re-release of his 2005 solo debut "Daylife" for Poland territory (by public demand!) is just around the corner and 2!! new longplayers are in the work… and the string of special digital edition EPs released through Pmusica over the course of the last years keeps a special place in the playlists & ears of of the global dj elite.
