Here’s to Space‘ 25th anniversary season! The iconic opening, the ritual that starts every year’s season in the best club in the world did not fail its great expectations: Especially the spectacular show in the Flight Club impressed punters with a stage of over 9 feet high flanked by two impressive fan towers, six led panels -that moved behind the DJ creating a perfect color match with the lasers- and of course, a sound up to the event, specially designed by Funktion One to Space Ibiza.
Spanish shooting star Edu Imbernon’s great set made for early highlights in the Flight Club already at 6 pm while The Premiere Etage was opened by Ian Blevins. DJ Mykris started in the Main Room, who was followed by the Swiss DJ Mike Candys and DJ BL3ND with its particular staging, making the audience move from one place to another, just imitating his dancing.
In La Terraza, one of the main areas of the club, the underground sounds were developed by South London Ordnance, Harvey Mckay and the Russian beauty Nina Kraviz, creating a fantastic atmosphere in the crowd.
Meanwhile in the Flight Club, Agoria, whose hit Scala was one of the key moments of the Opening Fiesta evening, drove the audience into a journey full of deep melodies. After that everybody was prepared for the return of the duo formed by Sharam and Dubfire, Deep Dish, an announcement which had created a big hype and did not disappoint. With a long intro featuring a variety of sounds, they closed the Flight Club with a sensational performance.
Meanwhile in La Terraza, the resident of Kehakuma Javi Bora, maddened the audience with a set full of energy. Right after him, James Zabiela showed his technically precise mixing skills before Sharam closed the fiesta on the terrace.
In the Main Room, in undoubtedly one of the peak moments of the day, The Chemical Brothers (DJ Set) blew up the crowd with their usual forcefulness with great moments like „Don’t think“ of their last album, or any of the productions of their Electric Battle Weapon series. As last year, the closing song was the electronic poem, Swoon. Definitely, a much appreciated ending.
After them, Basement Jaxx closed the Main Room around 7 am with a rich and powerful set influenced by the Balearic style.
It’s still possible to enjoy the journey through Space provided by a recorded live stream of the fiesta by BE@TV, available on its website.
More than 15 hours of music, 35 artists spread over 6 rooms, 5 animation companies and thousands of people made the opening 2014 once again a memorable affair.
