    HÏ IBIZA BRINGS A NEW ERA OF CLUBBING TO IBIZA | EVENT REVIEW


    OzClubbers

    170804_Hi_BBC_BR_034

    We stepped through the doors of Hï Ibiza this summer with feelings of excitement and intrigue as we were keen to see what had become of Space, one of the world’s most famous clubs, after shutting its doors last summer (for those not too sure, Space had been throwing parties on Ibiza for 27 years and was reborn under the guise of Hï Ibiza for the 2017 season by Ushuaïa who acquired the venue last year).

    We headed down for the BBC Radio 1 party on Friday 4th August and entered the club with everything in full swing.  Even as we approached it was clear that the club had been under a massive renovation as the outside was gleaming with a new facade and the queuing issues that were a frequent occurrence at Space were none existent and we walked straight in.

    The club is now split between two areas – The Theatre and The Club, and it’s in the former where we spent most of our time. The Theatre is the biggest of the two rooms with an amazing lighting system that brought visualisations throughout the room and across the ceiling.  Combined with an absolutely cracking sound system, a bunch of mind boggling lasers and heaps of confetti & air cannons, it was the perfect venue to catch sets from Kolsch, Maya Jane Coles, B. Traits and Annie Mac.

    Over in The Club we caught sets from Tiga and Waze & Odyssey and enjoyed the slightly more intimate and underground feel of this space.  Just as we thought that our adventure exploring Hï Ibiza was over, we headed to the toilets where we had heard rumours that there was another club room in there – surely not? Well yes, there is – and what a vibe! We loved the novelty factor of raving in a loo and it was clear that this was a feeling shared by the other clubbers in there too.

    Hï Ibiza will always have the reputation of Space to compete with but will push to create its own legacy. However, it’s clear the newly branded venue will deliver a new era of clubbing on the site and if this party was anything to go by, then it’s set to deliver some spectacular seasons of partying.

        NEW YORK, NY (April 6, 2018) — Today, King Arthur releases his new single and official
      debut for Casablanca Records, “Laidback.” Get it HERE.
      “Laidback is the perfect record to begin expanding my Kingdom.” King Arthur talks about his
      new song, “It’s a fresh take on a classic sound, and the beginning of new sonic era for me, that I
      couldn’t be more excited about.  I’m particularly thrilled to have the cavalry at Casablanca
      Records leading the charge”   The acclaimed artist and producer once again elevates his royal and regal repertoire. Hinging
      on off-kilter sampling, propulsive percussion, and an irresistible refrain, the track welcomes
      listeners into the center of his court. There’s nothing on the dance floor quite like it!
      “Laidback” also heralds yet another evolution for King Arthur. Harking back to the seminal
      classics from Fatboy Slim and Moby that shaped his formative years, he updates a timeless
      sound for today’s generation on his forthcoming new EP—coming very soon.
      King Arthur’s quiet grind laid the foundation for a royal kingdom that’s unlike anything else in
      electronic dance music. Released on Don Diablo’s Hexagon, the 2016 full-length debut, Believe
      In The Kingdom, generated a staggering 20 million-plus streams on Spotify as his total cumulative streams surpassed 47 million. The Chainsmokers, Axwell & Ingrosso, Martin Garrix,
      and countless other heavy hitters have tapped the artist, producer, DJ, and remixer for high-
      profile remixes, while Kaskade, David Guetta, Tiësto, Afrojack and more regularly spin his music
      live. He teamed up with Bastille on a remix of “World Gone Mad” for the Official Soundtrack
      Album to NETFLIX’s hit Bright. He made history by performing at the first-ever dance music
      event in Pakistan and touched down everywhere from Tomorrowland Mainstage to the Storm
      Festival.   ABOUT CASABLANCA RECORDS

      An overcast Saturday afternoon in Brisbane’s West End set the scene for a huge collaboration by Junkyard Sessions, Rewind and Rukus as they joined forces to present us with the massive outdoor SpectraSoul (UK) Drum N Bass Day Rave.
      The Boundary Hotel provided a sweet layout with a good sized dance floor adjacent to the bar, a choice of two separate pool rooms, a decent chill zone and a smoking area from which you could still see and hear the Dj’s. The high ceilings and palm trees gave the event the outdoor feel and was perfect as rain threatened throughout the afternoon.
      As I arrived around 4pm the first thing that struck me was the crowd. This was my first DNB event and the punters were reminiscent of a doof crowd. I was greeted by a sea of dreadlocks, snapbacks and the smell of sweat and essential oils all at once.  The vibe was already huge with the dancefloor almost full as De La Haye and Kosha B played a back to back warm up set.
      De La Haye and Kosha D run the local DNB night Junkyard Sessions, which happens on the second Saturday of each month, and has been gracing the Brissie scene since 2009, with both also running their own events since the early 2000’s. To say that this event was something special for the Brisbane DNB scene would be an understatement as going on 250 people packed the venue.

      Headliner SpectraSoul played a truly memorable liquid set to a crowd full of smiles. What a vibe! The set was the mixture of DNB and electronic that I’d been told to expect of SpectraSoul and was the perfect way to ease into my first Drum and Bass experience. The track that absolutely sealed the deal and stole a lil’ piece of my techno heart?   A remix of “Say What” by SpectraSoul and How We Live. This track had that emotive crowd winning female vocal and then broke down into calm and melodic DnB that I couldn’t stop listening to for days after the event.
      To close the party Mikmac and Speechless stepped up and almost immediately the energy and pace increased. Heavy rollers, Classic bangers, Neurofunk and Jump up were the weapons of choice. It was the kind of high-energy set that literally had people dancing on the stage, calling for rewinds, and chanting "one more song" as the event came to a close. It's clear that this was the REWIND crew in action and that’s where they got their name from.
      All up it was a good venue, amazing tunes and one of the nicest vibes I’ve seen in the Brisbane scene. This event won’t be forgotten anytime soon by myself or any of the hundreds of dedicated DNB ravers that attended. A truly epic offering by Junkyard Sessions, Rewind and Rukus. For anyone new to Drum and Bass or yet to experience this genre in Brisbane, I urge you to check out their future offerings as soon as you can.
