The world’s most revered club celebrated its 20th anniversary in August with its best season yet... to help celebrate Space Ibiza hosted a special 20th anniversary party at Mission Nightclub in Leeds. Mission was the perfect club to help us celebrate, since its major refurbishment in 2006, the club´s popularity has reached new heights. Tonight was also the highly anticipated re-opening of the club for all the students who had returned after the summer...
On arriving at the club, the first you notice is the long queue of clubbers eager to get in and experience the magical Space Ibiza vibe. The club has been totally transformed for the night, massive Space posters outside the club and all along the street, and chic white drapes in the main room, giving it a magical Space feel. Warming up the crowd is local resident DJ Josh Demello with an excellent funky house set, setting the scene for Camilo. Camilo played a full-on house set, which included all the Space Ibiza anthems from the summer, following Camilo was Smokin Jo, who has been an intergral part of Space Ibiza since 1993.
Smokin Jo is one of the most talented DJs to emerge from the British dance music scene. Jo’s undeniably cutting edge sound has carved her a niche in clubland, and tonight was no different. She started off with a house sound which gradually got tougher and more minimal, which was definitely one of the more tougher sets Mission has seen in a while, but the crowd loved it! The dancefloor was packed, with a sea of hands in the air appreciating the pulsating rhythm.
The night definitely captured a real Space Ibiza party atmosphere; with stunning decor, dancers, stilt walkers and Space Ibiza visuals, which made you feel like you were in Space, dancing in the flight arena. Mission and Space Ibiza, definitely a winning combination!
See you @ Mission again in November. DJs and date to be announced shortly.
