So he headed over to Ibiza to play for the likes of Garlands and Housewives Choice at clubs like Eden and a selection of the pre-bars. djx2 also started to pick up regular gigs up and down the country, playing for nights like Invasion and Fusion.
During the early part of 2006 things became fairly quiet for djx2, while he concentrated more on his full time job and gaining promotion.
