Simon Cowell plans to attract the "most edgy" artists to his Ultimate DJ show, according to co-producer Patrick Moxey.

Moxey, boss of Ultra Music and part of our Key Player series, is a co-producer of the show and he revealed some of Cowell's plans during a talk at the International Music Summit in Ibiza yesterday.

"In his own way, [Cowell] is an incredibly creative man. When it comes to the show, he wants it to be respectful of the space and he wants us to have the most edgy and the best artists.

"It's the same way you would approach trying to have great singers, we're going to have great electronic artists involved in the show."

Yahoo, a partner for the not-so-popular X Factor for DJs, confirmed it was going ahead last month, claiming it'd be the "World Cup of EDM", and it's now been announced it'll come to life in spring next year.
