On September 8th 2014 at Itaca in San Antonio we hosted our Uneek Ibiza launch party, in association with Grooveland Records. The beautiful setting of Itaca’s roof terrace was the scene, with a DJ line up consisting of Uneek Ibiza’s friends including Boy Griff, Trevor O’Neil, Audioplayerz, DJ Darz and Dani Zaro.
It was Boy Griff who kicked off proceedings at 8pm, playing a brilliant set of old tracks newly remixed, wih the famous Ibiza sunset in the distance. Griff played the likes of Sidney Charles – Hustler Stomp, Daft Punk – One More Time (Felix Leiter’s Elektriqa Bootleg), Mark Knight & Funkagenda – Man With The Red Face (Rene Amesz Remix), Prodigy – No Good (Chiqito Edit) and Fedde le Grand & Mr V – Back & Forth (Fedde’s Future Funk Remix).
Up next was Ibiza islander Trevor O’Neil of Lucky Life, who’s had a great summer DJing on the island, not least at Space for We Love and Carl Cox events! Trev played a mixture of his own productions and upfront tracks including Trevor O’Neil – Believe In Freedom, Dan Ghenacia – Ometeo (Dyed Soundorom Abuelita Mix), DJ Sneak – Going Get Got and Audiojack – No Cure and Dazzla – Output 1-2 (Trevor O’Neil remix).
Emil of Audioplayerz then played a set of tech house tracks such as Angel Heredia & Ernesto Mendoza – Meeting (Angel Heredia Remix), Mr Rodgall & Alex Delgado & Sergio Pardo – African Song, Siwell – Sinnerman (Prelude Mix) before heading into a progressive/deep direction dropping Pryda – Axis and Eric Prydz – Liberate (Lane 8 Remix).
DJ Darz was on next, playing a set of big Ibiza 2014 tracks, including Duke Dumont – The Giver, Bakermat – One Day (Vandaag), Wankelmut & Emma Louise – My Head Is A Jungle (MK Remix), Shiba San – OKAY and Watermät – Bullit.
Dani Zaro then took over, and played Glitter – 4life, Bob Sinclar – Back Again, Do Santos, & Simone Vitullo – My Bassline Friend, Don Diablo – AnyTime (Extended Mix), Dr.Kucho & Gregor Salto – Can Stop Playing (Oliver Heldens & Gregor Salto Remix). Dani had a big summer on the island, being a resident DJ at the world famous beach bar Bora Bora on Tuesdays, and also the biggest club in the world, Privilege. Boy Griff then joined Dani and the two of them seen out the night until 3am with a great back to back set.
