Solomun Leads Pacha Ibiza’s Underground House Charge
Pacha Ibiza unveiled details of their new line-ups for 2013 this week, which include three new underground tech/ house themed events.
While Guy Gerber replaces Erick Morillo on Wednesdays with his Wisdom to the Glove’ parties including guests such as Cajmere, dOP, Benoit & Sergio and Mathew Jonson on Friday Pete Tong’s events become Insane parties, with DJs including John Digweed, Uner, Joris Voorn, Umek and Derrick Carter lined up to perform.
Pacha’s biggest coup, however, is replacing Luciano with Solomun on Sundays for his brand new +1 parties, which will see the Diynamic/ Hamburg-based star playing for the entire night alongside 1 guest DJ each week, including the likes of Âme, Dennis Ferrer and Marek Hemmann. Both DJs will also be playing in the centre of the club, apparently from a new DJ booth located in the middle of the dancefloor.
“Maybe you already heard about it,” said Solomun, writing on Facebook.
“It was a long way to make the final decision which Partner/Venue is the right one for my new concept and with Pacha I have found the right one, where I had the best feeling in the end,” he said.
“From its size to the history of the club on the Island (were reasons), but the most important thing (was), they are 100 % behind my vision,” he explained.
“Pacha understood very quickly the spirit I try to create and they ready to make it happen and are open for changes. It’s a new challenge and I’m very excited about it.” https://www.facebook.com/SolomunMusic
Solomun’s party is likely to be in direct competition with Luciano’s widely rumoured new residency at ex-Pacha boss Danny Whittle’s new club La Bomba, just yards from the Ibiza Town institution as well as We Love, Space’s wildly successful long running Sunday night event.
The Playa D’en Bossa club also announced their opening June 9 lineup this week, which includes regulars James Zabiela, Carl Craig and Paul Woolford plus Henrik Schwarz (live) and Krafty Kuts.
