Sunday 20th July has gone down as one of our favourite parties in We Love’s 16 year history. From start to finish the 15 hour party had the whole club smiling from ear to ear and every single act brought their A game. As always we started things off on the Sunset Terrace at 16:30 with Stripped and a series of unannounced secret guests. Ian Blevins kicked things off warming things up for local lad Tom Peppe before special guests Shaun Reeves and Ryan Crossan played an extend back to back set. Ian Blevins returned for the final Stripped set playing back to back with Jason Bye.
And then onto the main event, Disclsoure Present Wild Life! The Discoteca opened first with resident Jem Haynes playing before Detroit’s finest live act Octave One stepped up and delivered one of the sets of the evening. By this point the whole club was at capacity and headliners Disclosure took to the stage. The following two hours were a masterclass in house, techno and all things in between. Having proved themselves as the premier Live act in the world back in June, with this DJ set Disclosure showed a level of craftsmanship, skill and finesse often thought to be the reserve of the elder statesmen of the scene setting them at the top of this craft too. We really do love Disclosure! Taking to the decks after Disclosure is no mean feat but Dusky were more than up to the task. The tempo and energy this duo manage to maintain in there sets is quite extraordinary and with this set they showed why they are fast becoming some of the most in-demand DJs around. Closing the room out in style Midland kept the tempo up and took the opportunity afforded by a later set than he is accustomed to to flex his big room muscles. To put it simply the Discoteca was going off from doors open to doors close!
Over on the Terrace an extended set from Visionquest opened the room in sophisticated style bringing the room to boiling point with wave after wave of acid tinged house, really classy stuff. Next up We Love residents Bicep took control of proceedings and delivered one of their best sets in 6 years of playing at We Love. Edible man Eats Everything was on closing duties and did not disappoint. With almost unrivalled technical ability and a great record bag Eats has become one of Ibiza’s most hyped acts and rightly so. Two hours into his set he invited a few guests to join him in the booth and the night was closed out by a back to back to back session from Eats Everything, Bicep and Disclosure. A great way to finish one of our favourite parties to date.
The rest of the club was bouncing all night long with a few standout sets from Nickodemus playing for After Dark and Mo ‘Funk playing in El Salon for Mustachio.
