Being the best nightclub in the world, Space in Ibiza is generally always busy. Tonight is both the peak of the summer season, and also a certain Mr Carl Cox’s birthday party, so the crowds are out in full attendance for what promised to be a summer highlight. It didn’t disappoint.
With 4 rooms on offer tonight, there’s something for everyone. For those wanting to catch their breath from the 2 main rooms, up on the cooler and more spacious open air Premier Etage DJ Callum was creating a nice chilled deep house vibe, playing tracks such as the beautiful E79 – Kink.
Down In the likewise cooling Terrace room Mo’Funk was playing an eclectic set with lashings of R&B mixed in with a funky 80s Balearic vibe. In the Terraza Masters At Work were at work providing some great driving vocal house music playing the likes of Kaiserdisco – Devon, DJ Sneak – Truly Gangster and Daniel Bortz – Who Is Manfred? In the Discoteca, Heidi warmed up well for Carl Cox playing a funky techno set.
At 3am a video package informed us this was the moment we had all come for. “This is the Revolution, this is Carl Cox,” before Space owner Pepe Rosello got on the microphone to say, “this is Carl’s bday, let’s make him happy. Let’s sing him happy birthday,” before a rendition of happy birthday from the whole club. Cox on the microphone said thanks and that it is always a pleasure to play Space on his birthday. Then the music restarted and Cox took the crowd on a DJ masterclass that included the likes of Hot Natured – Benediction (Nic Faniculi remix) and Kydus – Free Spirit – a driving melodic track which absolutely took the roof off.
Tonight Carl Cox had the crowd in raptures – there were balloons, confetti, sparklers and air cannons. It was packed, the music was spot on, with a great crowd and atmosphere.
Happy birthday Carl!
