Opening Parties

Oh yes! It’s that glorious time of the year again – summer has arrived and the best DJs in the world are jetting their way over to the White Isle. The Ibiza Opening Parties have begun and all of our much-loved superclubs are no doubt pulling out all the stops to make this year…if possible even bigger and better than the last!

DC10 – now famous for being famous, is one of the gems of the Ibiza clubbing scene, offering an entirely unique clubbing environment and experience. Unlike the other clubs on the island, DC10 does little or no publicity for its parties, meaning those who go are in the know and there for one reason; the music. DC10 is all about good DJs and quality underground electronic music. It is famous for it after hours parties, launching the careers of some of the island’s biggest DJs, fancy dress, and the fact it’s located at the end of the runway! DC10 definitely wins joint place with Bora Bora Beach for being the best late afternoon hotspot. 

The legendary Monday morning session grew from a small band of hardcore ravers to being the most talked about party in Ibiza and possibly the whole world of electronic music in the last 10 years. It isn’t the most glamorous of clubs and there is no expensive lighting or production, but the careers of some of the best electronic DJs including Tania Vulcano, Loco Dice and Luciano are indebted to the success of the parties at DC10-who are we to complain about a lack of a few disco balls, and naked stilt women?  

The building wasn’t made to withstand the heaving crowds it attracts.  The ques for the bars and toilets are hefty, getting outside is a chore, and the rooms are completely sardined with hot, sweaty revellers (no hiding that facemelt if DC10ing in the day!)…BUT, what it lacks in these areas, it more than makes up for in the uber quality of the sound system, DJs, and location.  

The best way to get there is by taxi –  €10 from Ibiza Town or Playa D’en Bossa, and €25 from San Antonio. There is also the bus to Salinas beach which stops just past the club, or you can walk from Sant Jordi which takes about 15-20 minutes.

There’s one thing having a great track, another having a superb video to compliment it. Check out KOAN sound’s new video ‘Funk Blaster’ its visually amazing.  KOAN Sound’s Jim Bastow explains “the concept of this video was to create a sci-fi but colorful landscape to compliment the feel of the track. To do this we asked director Scott Pagano to design a robot-like character to represent the ‘Funk Blaster,’ and to construct a futuristic setting to house it in.”

Transformers eat your heart out! Cutting edge? Yes! Innovative? Yes! Awesome? BIG yes!

First heard this song on Rinse FM last month and fell in love! What a tune…Cartwright sounds a bit like Maverick Sabre right? It’s a traffic lights, window down, volume maxed, head nodder, shoulder shimmying tune!
