Several of us will currently be saving up for the closing parties in September and October. Such closing sets like the final ever marathon set hosted by Carl Cox, the final ever Avicii Ibiza set and any set featured at the Space Ibiza closing fiesta are some of the sets revellers will have their eyes on the most.
Whilst many of us are saving for these dates though, there are still some pretty incredible line-ups one would be crazy to miss in the final week of July.
With a jam-packed week complete with all of your favourite heavyweight names from a variety of realms across the electronic music board, here are five sets we recommend that you check out this week.
Week Commencing: Monday 25th
“Music is moments.” – Three famous words that came from the famous lips of one of the most revolutionary performers ever to grace a set of decks, Solomun. Having followed the Diynamic boss around Europe this summer at festivals such as Time Warp and Kappa Futur Festival, he has created several moments that provide definitive memories that bring back positive reminders whenever his music is played.
Appearing alongside the legendary Papa Sven in the Terrace tonight, you can expect Solomun to ignite the Cocoon faithful with an output of sound possessing qualities of the emotive, visceral and authentic measure – this is one Amnesia Ibiza set worth every cent of the ticket alone.
Aiming to set a record and perform the most sets inside 24 hours, Ellum Records chief Maceo Plex will be taking innovation and ambition to the next level as he travels to 10 different locations around the party capital of Ibiza tomorrow projecting 10 sets to blend together different styles of music in order to showcase the message behind his Mosaic By Maceo residency.
Whilst locations and times are yet to be revealed, you can be sure that the Tuesday night Pacha Ibiza resident will be closing this marathon mission in exquisite fashion come the end of the night at his first ever artist-led residency as he looks to capture the essence of Ibiza both musically and visually.
Two of the most in-demand techno titans in the world today going back-to-back in what can only be described as underground paradise at DC10 Ibiza? When looking through the billings of Paradise for 2016 when they were originally released, one of the stand out dates for us was Wednesday 27th July. Why you ask? Jamie Jones goes back-to-back with Joseph Capriati of course.
Coming off the back of a successful back-to-back outing at Carl Cox last week, Capriati will be getting up close and personal with the Hot Creations boss this Wednesday. You can expect high volumes of energy and inspiration, tropical grooves illustrating a warmer, deeper and more melodic side to techno music and a jam-packed Terrace with all eyes on the coveted DC10 Ibiza booth in the left-hand corner.
The man, the myth, the legend… Paul Oakenfold changed the face of dance music as we knew it back in the summer of 1987 along with Danny Rampling and Nicky Holloway and whenever he is in attendance behind the decks, it is always considered a special occasion.
This Thursday at Cream will be no different as he takes over the Main Room as special guest. With over two decades of deck experience to his name, a stirred imagination and a signature ranging from the early rise of hip hop all the way to his massive influence over the world of trance, Oakenfold will undoubtedly bring his game face in a performance that will watched by the Cream faithful in appreciation.
We are now two weeks into Craig David’s TS5 pool party residency over at Ibiza Rocks Hotel and the only thing everyone on the island can seem to talk about on Sundays currently is… CRAIG DAVID!
Returning from the shadows making a splash with Justin Bieber covers towards the conclusion of 2015, Craig David has sky-rocketed to the top of everyone’s to do list and we couldn’t think of a better way of ticking that box by fist-pumping away in the pool at Ibiza Rocks Hotel. Offering perfect tune selection, hip hop swag and a little bit of bump and grind rewinding you back to the 90’s, Craig David will be all up in your grill this coming weekend, we guarantee you.
