The third and penultimate WIld Life show at We Love Sundays At Space on 17th August saw Disclosure invite a cross-section of talent from across the dance music spectrum to join them in Space’s Discoteca and Terrace. We Love resident Jason Bye opened the main room with a garage tinged house set followed by an absolute masterclass from Detroit’s finest Carl Craig. Carl’s pedigree is unquestionable and he took a bustling Discoteca to full capacity over the course of a carefully crafted, considered and powerful set. Next up Disclosure took to the decks. An acapella of When A Fire Starts To Burn signalled the start of their set before the first kick drum dropped, single handedly exploding the Discoteca dancefloor. Their set reflected the diversity of the lineup that night covering everything from Detroit Techno, low slung House and the crossover garage-house sound from which they made their name. Sets covering such a broad range of music can often sound disjointed but this was definitely not the case here, a testament to the skill level and maturity Disclosure display in not only their live shows but also in their DJ sets. We Love resident Skream closed the room out with a bang, taking the opportunity afforded by a closing set to stretch his legs a bit a really delivered, rave was the name of the game!
On the Terrace long serving We Love residents Bicep opened the room up with an extend set. This being the duo’s third Terrace set of the summer they are really starting to get to know the room and know when it’s possible to take a few risks and boy did those risks pay off. Deeper moments followed by Acid stabs kept the dancefloor on their toes for the duration. Next up Henrik Schwarz. Henrik has long been a favourite in the We Love office, his music fits so perfectly with the Terrace that his sets are always marked in the calendar from early on and eagerly anticipated. His live show was, as expected, technically perfect and roof raising. Residents once again took the closing set on the Terrace as Dusky played their third and penultimate show of the summer. Bridging the gap between house and techno they closed the room out in fine style, judging the required tempo perfectly to keep a crowd going 15 hours into a marathon Sunday Session.
As always the party started out on the Sunset Terrace at 16:30 with Stripped and a host of surprise guests. This week We Love resident Jem Haynes was joined by guests Dosem, Onno and Jon Woodall all of whom delivered great sets, soundtracking an afternoon in the sun and providing the perfect start to the night ahead. After midnight and After Dark, Mr Doris invited island resident Mo’ Funk and Kevin Kutts to join him on the Sunset Terrace and Ian Blevins and Brydie Tong took control of the Premier Etage. Lo Cura Lounge made a welcome return to El Salon with main man David Phillips inviting Brian Beezwax, Robert Cashin and Soul Drops man Fabrizio to join the party.
The final Wild Life show on September 14th will be the last place to see Disclosure in Ibiza this summer. They play live in the Discoteca with special guests Annie Mac, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Breach, Paul Woolford, Soul Clap, PBR Streetgang and more all appearing too. Final release tickets for this event are available here.
