COMING UP – AUGUST AT WE LOVE SUNDAYS AT SPACE

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

As we near the halfway point of the Summer season the list of highlights gets longer and longer. Our Opening Party already seems like a lifetime ago and the last 7 weeks blur into a hazy memory of sunny afternoons, sweaty nights and fantastic music. Taking a look ahead at the month to come August looks set to provide as many talking points as the parties passed. Starting things off on August 3rd we are very happy to present a very special event in collaboration with BBC Radio 1 and the fantastic Essential Mix as part of the Radio 1 Ibiza Weekender.

AUGUST 3RD

For this special event We Love resident Skream hosts the Discoteca as part of his monthly Skreamizm takeovers and his mix will be recorded live for broadcast on the Essential mix. Joining him in the main room for the first time in 7 years of playing We Love (all previous appearances have been on the Terrace) Âme plays a much anticipated Techno set. Dense & Pika return for the second year running representing the cutting edge of Techno and fresh from his highly acclaimed Essential mix Jasper James makes his We Love and Space debut. Also appearing Joris Voorn plays his only Terrace set of the Summer after a fantastic main room appearance back in June and we are very happy to welcome DJ W!LD to the We Love fold with a one off performance. Technasia completes the bill on the Terrace and plays an extended closing set. We Love the Essential Mix!

AUGUST 10th

Put simply August 10th looks set to be THE event of the Summer. On the second sunday in August we are very proud to present Loco Dice’s birthday party aptly titled “AUGUST X“. For this exclusive We Love Sundays At Space event Dice has invited his friends and contemporaries, covering Space’s 5 rooms from start to finish. The 15 hour event will see 2 appearances from the man himself, an afternoon Sunset Terrace set and a main Terrace closing set. The lists of artists joining Dice is simply huge and along with those listed on the poster above expect some very special guests coming to celebrate this one off birthday event. Watch this Space for full runtimes and more info. Tickets for this event are flying and we expect it to sell out so act fast to avoid disappointment. Final release available here. We Love Loco Dice!

AUGUST 17th

Three weeks into August and there is not letting up as Disclosure present their third exclusive Wild Life event at We Love Sundays At Space. Everyone who has attended either of the two previous Wild Life shows will testify to just how mind blowing these have been and the lineup for August 17th looks set to trump even the previous two. Disclosure are at the very apex of the current dance music crossover phenomenon and the bill around them reflects a mix of the new cool (Skream, Bicep, Dusky), the old school (Carl Craig) and the effortlessly cool (Henrik Schwarz). A varied mix of guests for sure but all with a common theme, fantastic music and each amazing artists in their own rights. We Love Wild Life!

AUGUST 24th

On August 24th we welcome back original We Love Space resident Danny Tenaglia. The role Danny Tenaglia played in shaping the history of We Love, Space and Ibiza in general cannot be overstated. His residency defined an era in dance music history and paved the way for modern DJing. It is with great pleasure that we welcome Danny back for this exclusive Terrace performance and he will be joined by another Terrace statesman and We Love resident Paul Woolford. Completing the bill in this room the ascendent Hot Since 82 makes his only We Love Sundays appearance of the Summer. Over in the Discoteca another original We Love Sundays At Space resident Sasha continues his Last Night On Earth takeovers inviting special guests Julio Bashmore and Catz ‘N Dogz to join him. We Love Sasha, We Love Danny Tenaglia!

AUGUST 31st

August 31st completes a 5 sunday month and we close August out in Style. Superstylers Groove Armada are back on the Terrace for their only Space appearance of the Summer. Their shows over the last few years in this room have become the stuff of legend and being their only one of the Summer we can only imagine how far the roof is going to be blown off for this set. We Love favourite Kölsch makes a welcome return and Fuse residents Enzo Siragusa and Rossko play back to back for their debut Terrace gig. Over in the Discoteca James Zabiela hosts Born Electric once again and invites Daniel Avery who plays back to back with Ivan Smagghe and Ben UFO who plays back to back with Midland. A trio of B2Bs, the return of Kölsch, maestro James Zabiela and Groove Armada’s only Terrace performance of the year, We Love Sundays At Space!

Tickets for all these events are available here. Keep up to date with all We Love goings on on our Facebook and Twitter and keep your ear to the ground if you are on the island for info on our secret Stripped events which we haven’t even touched on here. We Love August!

STRIPPED

Saturday, June 28th, 2014

For the past 3 weeks our afternoon experiment has been bubbling away on the Sunset Terrace. Stripped is our antidote to VIP club culture and musical snobbery and puts the focus firmly back on the party. Each week we open Space’s fantastic outdoor Sunset Terrace at 16:30 and each week a completely unannounced line up supplies the soundtrack. The lineups for the rest of the summer will remain completely secret each week but we can now reveal who has played so far.

STRIPPED IS A DAY TIME THING

For our opening party on June 8th Space opened it’s doors in the afternoon for the first time in 5 years (excluding their fantastic opening and closing parties of course) and Stripped was born, giving new life to daytime clubbing in the room that it was invented in. Providing the soundtrack that week were the extremely talented Rossko of Fuse fame, Ibiza Global Radio’s David Moreno, Visionquest’s Shaun Reeves, Space Terrace favourite Bushwacka! and We Love resident Jem Haynes.

SHAUN REEVES AT SUNSET

The DJs at the opening party set the standards extremely high with all the guests bringing their A game. With good music at its heart the point about Stripped is that it is a party for everyone to enjoy in the same way, there’s no VIP area, no velvet ropes, no segregation. Ibiza is a notoriously expensive place to party and door prices can be prohibitively high but with Stripped an unannounced lineup allows us to keep ticket prices down and from now until the end of the Summer it is only 10 euros entrance with a flyer or wristband from one of our PR team.

A PARTY FOR EVERYONE

Daytime clubbing is as synonymous with the Space Terrace as Sunsets are with Cafe Del Mar. From it’s inception 25 years ago Space was a daytime venue and back in the day the Terrace was the only place to spend your Sunday afternoons. Now We Love is “back in the day” once again and Stripped is filling a whole for locals and discerning holiday makers that has been present since the government put a stop to our 22 hour parties 6 years ago.

FUN IN THE SUN

As production values for every party in Ibiza seem to get bigger and bigger the clubs have seen some breathtaking transformations for each event. As much as we appreciate the effort that goes into this and the results achieved our defining mantra has always been “We Love Space!” Stripped is a celebration of that fact, we don’t want to change or modify Space we want to appreciate it for what it is. Our first party on the Terrace 16 years ago had a blue Space flag behind the DJ booth which was pretty much the total “production” we had at the time. The flag is back for Stripped and there it shall stay all Summer.

WE LOVE SURPRISES

On week 2 Shaun Reeves played for the second week running and really began to find a groove for the room. Also on this week local Ibizan DJs Rickzor & Rumme made their Stripped and We Love debut and made a great first impression. The booking of these 2 DJs came about after seeing them play at favourite Ibiza winter hang out Veto, their selection and mixing was impeccable and they proved that locals really do know best. Long serving islanders Jason Bye and Andy Baxter also played with the pair going back to back for the final hour from 11pm till midnight closing Stripped out in style.

WE LOVE THE SUNSET TERRACE

Week 3 saw We Love resident Ryan O’Gorman make his Stripped debut and his closing set pre midnight went down as one of our favourites of the Summer. Jordan Peak, Hector and Shaun Reeves (for his third week in a row) all played fantastic sets and set the club up perfectly for the following 7 hours of what turned out to be a monster of a party as Disclosure brought their Wild Life event to We Love Sunday At Space for the first of four exclusive shows.

SMILES ALL AROUND

To get an idea of what stripped sounds like Ibiza Voice are hosting the first of four Stripped Mixes. Each mix comes from a stripped guest (past or future) and is a showcase of the sound of the Sunset Terrace. Each mix is completely anonymous to reflect the idea of the party. The first one is available to stream and download here.

We have some fantastic artists lined up over the coming months for Stripped but as always these will remain completely unannounced until after the event so to find out you’ll have to come down and check it out!

We Love Sundays, We Love Space, We Love Stripped!

WE LOVE… SUNDAYS AT SPACE – JUNE 22nd 2014

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

WOW! Week 3 certainly went off with a bang. June 22nd was perhaps one of the most anticipated dates of the Ibiza calendar and it did not disappoint. The reason for this anticipation? Disclosure! Presenting for the first time ever in Ibiza, the UK chart topping duo brought their Wild Life brand to We Love Sundays At Space for the first of four exclusive shows. Their live performance was without doubt one of the highlights of the season so far with every record blowing the roof of a full to capacity Discoteca. The rest of the bill held their own equally well alongside the superstar brothers. Derrick May closed the room after the Disclosure Live show and matched them beat for beat in a master class of house and Techno. Derrick is the godfather of Detroit Techno, no doubt about it. Jonas Rathsman made his We Love debut and marked himself as one to watch in the future and over on the Terrace a fantastic 3 hour set from PBR Streetgang was followed by an equally inspiring 4.5 hour set from Innervisions man Ame.

As always the lineup for Stripped on the Sunset Terrace was completely unanounced but we can now reveal that Jordan Peak, Hector, Ryan O’Gorman and Shaun Reeves all played and delivered the goods. This part of the party is going from strength to strength etching it’s place as a locals favourite. We’ve got some amazing guests lineud up over the next few weeks but as always you need to be there to find out for yourselves who it is!

If you missed this landmark event fear not as we have 3 more Disclosure present Wild Life events over the course of the summer on July 20th, August 17th and September 14. Tickets for these events are already flying out so ask fast!

WE LOVE… SUNDAYS AT SPACE – JUNE 15th 2014

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Week 2 at We Love Sundays at Space saw 5 acts make their We Love debuts. Recent UK chart topper Route 94 took the roof off a packed Discoteca after a fantastic warm up from residents Jem Haynes and Ryan O’Gorman who played back to back. After Route 94 Ben Pearce took control of proceedings and kept the room jumping till James Zabiela‘s first set of the summer which proved again why James is one of our favourite DJS and the king of the Discoteca. Amazing scenes all around. Over on the Terrace we had a trio of duos. Monthly residents Bicep made their first appearance of the Summer, the super stylish Michael Mayer and Roman Flugel played an exclusive back to back set and new comers Detroit Swindle wowed us from the get go with possibly our favourite set of the night.

On the sunset Terrace Stripped built on the success of the opening party where fun in the sun is the name of the game. Island resident Andy Baxter opened the room and then closed it again playing along side fellow islander Jason Bye. Early in the afternoon Ibicenco tips for the top Rickzor & Rumme proved that locals do it best and Shaun Reeves once again delivered a master class in house music playing the sunset set for the second week in a row. After midnight Mr Doris and Aldo Vanucci brought their own After Dark take on things and had the room bouncing all night. Over in El Salon Mustachio brought a splash of art deco fun to the evening and up on the premier Etage Balearic Godfather Alfredo took the crowd on a 3 hour journey through house, funk and all things eclectic and Ian Blevins closed the room in style.

An amazing party and only the second week in. 15 more Sundays to go!

WE LOVE… AFTER DARK

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

After Dark

If music is the food of love and variety is the spice of life then Mr Doris and his After Dark crew serve up one of the most lovingly spiced menus on the island. The beauty of programming an event at Space is that it’s 5 arenas allow for far greater experimentation than most other venues. The Discoteca is one of the best places in the world to listen to Techno, the Terrace has helped define the House sound over the years, El Salon‘s intimacy lends itself perfectly to a Disco edit and the Premier Etage offers a perfect setting for a Balearic soundtrack. This year as we open the Sunset Terrace once again for afternoon fun in the sun with stripped, House is sure to reign supreme once again but come midnight we welcome After Dark for the 4th consecutive year offering a different and unique take on things. Curated by long serving We Love resident Mr Doris, After Dark has fast become a favourite place for locals and in the know holiday makers looking for something a bit different to the usual 4/4 sound. The music policy covers everything from breaks, reggae, afro, funk, soul, latin, bass and loads more in between. It’s a simple ethos, if it sounds good and fits the party then it get’s played, if it doesn’t then it doesn’t get played. Over the last few years Mr Doris has invited some fantastic guests to join him on the Sunset Terrace and offered an Ibiza home to acts including A Skillz, DJ Yoda, Norman Jay, Krafty Kuts, The Correspondents, Craig Charles, Coldcut, Jazzanova, Quantic and many more who were previously un represented on the Island.

This year the lineup continues in the same vain with many of his reqular guests returning once again (kicking things off with A Skillz at the opening party on June 8th) along with some debuts from The Herbaliser, Basement Freaks, Slynk, Boca45 and many more. To see the full After Dark and We Love Sundays at Space lineups head here and take a look at what we have lined up for June here.

SKREAM PRESENTS – SKREAMIZM

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Oliver Jones aka Skream has pretty much done it all. The Radio 1 resident rose to stardom at the forefront of the much documented Dub Step surge and as one third of Magnetic Man forged a path for crossover chart successes. Recent years have seen Skream make a considered shift away from the sound that made his name and take a step towards House and Techno with a slew of Disco collaborations along the way. This summer Skream presents four exclusive Skreamizm Terrace takeovers at We Love Sundays At Space on June 8th, July 13th, August 3rd and September 28th headlining each event and inviting a series of special guests to joint him each week.

“I always end up having more than a lovely time at We Love so it’ll be a pleasure to be partying with the crew across the summer” -SKREAM

Over the course of the Summer Skream welcomes the cream of the UK crop in Bicep, Dusky, Paul Woolford, Ben UFO and a special B2B performance with recent chart topper Route 94. Ame brings the Innervisions sophistication and Tensnake and Dense & Pika both perform live. Detroit native Jimmy Edgar plays his only Space set of the Summer and Scottish tip for the top Jasper James makes his Space debut.
