We headed to Pacha in Ibiza, legendary club and first superclub on the Island, to see if after all these years since the early parties, it still rocks like back in the day.
David Guetta and Robin Schulz man the decks, taking the party from full one dance anthems, snippets of pop memorabilia, mixed with the darker elements, tribalism and dubstep to latin flavours. Hands flying, loved-up heart shapes fill the air, ants marching, all on the same page – or dance floor. Skilled scratching, mixing back and forth, while Guetta merges the party tracks with the more leftfield, from Zomboid to Wiwek, with the odd old skool anthem thrown in including ‘I Like To Move It’ by Reel 2 Real, which gets everyone bouncing along.
Pacha still completely delivers, immersive beats, from the progressive and electro to more underground and impressively gonzoid sounds. This floor that has been danced on by so many people across the world, somehow moves your feet immediately. Since 1973, with those before you and those yet to come, everyone in this room is here to dance. If you don’t dance, or don’t think you do – think again – ‘cause you wont be able to stop.
Here are our top tracks from the night.
