Beat & Raw will be the new Friday party at Space Ibiza. This is a new concept breaking conventions: an urban-feel party that plays with the stories of two characters, Beat and Raw, two friends who through circumstances of life decide to set off together on a trip to the island of Ibiza where they will live magic and unbelievable experiencies on the award-winning club Space Ibiza.
With their characters, each of them will represent one of the legendary rooms at Space. Beat is always accelerated, with his hyperactivity he is the equivalent of rhythm and is represented by the Terrace of the club, where the more electronic rhythms will be sounding. His partner Raw, on the other hand, is totally wild and unpredictable. He will be represented by the Main Room, where there will be live performances and concerts. These two “parts” will not only be played out in the DJ cabins, accompanying the most exciting artists of the moment – they also intend to move around and interact with the public, as well as wander Ibiza’s beaches throughout the summer. Always surrounded by the most beautiful girls, Beat & Raw will discover their vocation as rabble-rousers ready to give it all to get the audience going.
The opening date of this special party, to be held every Friday, will be the 6th of July, ending on 21st September, and there are already several impressive names confirmed. With a totally eclectic sense, fusing from hip hop and R&B to techno, via pop or drum & bass, the party will kick off on the opening night with performances from the legendary Californian hip hop group Cypress Hill, who will be joining the mythical hip hop group, Violadores del Verso, as well as DJs Jekey and Allan Ramirez, while dub step will be represented by Dub Elements and Don Diablo. Also at Beat & Raw will be the American duo Thievery Corporation, representing the most elegant electronic downtempo, Digitalism, the indie group The Temper Trap, and Jaguar Skills, the terrorist of dubstep, and one of the residents raring to go in the terrace dj cabin.
The line-up for the opening will be the following:
Violadores del Verso
Allan Ramirez (Resident DJ Beat & Raw)
Other artists confirmed to date include: the legendary Front 242, The Subs, D-Formation, and Oscar L, among many others that we will be revealing in the coming weeks. Throughout the summer, the Main Room will be hosted by Doctor Music, one of the biggest concert promotion companies in Spain, this year celebrating 30 years of business. Doctor Music has organized over 2.000 concerts, including the famous Doctor Music Festival, a pioneering concept introduced in Spain by Neo Sala that went on to become a milestone in the history of pop culture in the country. Living on in the memories of many, almost fifteen years later, is Doctor Music Festival’s line-up:
David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Rage Against The Machine, Blur, Pulp, Suede, Beastie Boys, Patti Smith, Steve Winwood, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper, Bad Religion, David Byrne, Moby, Neneh Cherry, Pet Shop Boys, Muse, Beck, Placebo, Portishead, Underworld and Massive Attack were just some of the almost four hundred artists who performed on the legendary festival’s different stages.
Born in 2008 - as a result of organizing the Doctor Loft 05:00 Festival, a new and original proposal, surprising not only in its format (26 hours non-stop starting at 5 am), but also in the mix of concerts by such acclaimed artists as R.E.M., Iggy Pop, or The Gossip, with the most up-to-date clubbing scene and the best DJs worldwide (Deep Dish, Jeff Mills or Felix Da Housecat among many others) - DOCTORMUSIC.dj, the promoter’s most recent project, is focused on DJ management, as well as promotion and distribution of their work all over the world and the conceptualization of new electronic music events.
