Take three of the biggest DJs and producers in house today, fuse fresh new sounds, classic Balearic tunes, an unstoppable energy, and put them all in the Best Global Club every Monday night – and say hello to Ibiza Calling.
Taking the same formula from last year’s Mondays Calling which embodied the best house music and the essence of the island’s true party spirit, but adding even more dance legends, scorching artists and rising stars, Ibiza Calling kicks off on June 18th. This season, we have a line-up that’s seriously set to impress all house aficionados and we know it will continue to define Mondays with energy-packed cuts that push the limits of euphoric sound.
We’re thrilled to announce that our trio of Ibiza Calling DJ residents to be musically reckoned with this year are Roger Sanchez, Wally Lopez and Juanjo Martin, with Wally Lopez headlining at the opening party on the 18th alongside Oscar Cano, Ramon Castells, Rene Amesz, and our award-winning Space resident Camilo Franco. Guest DJs that have already been confirmed to play this season are Life is a Loop (live), Norman Doray, Muzzaik, Baggi Begovic, Sharam, Rene Amesz, Muzzaik, Chus + Ceballos and Prok & Fitch, with many more announcements on the way.
Monday nights have always been a battle of the giants in Ibiza, but real house lovers always hit Space the day after Sunday following a solid reputation on the back of three years of bringing together the finest house superstars, DJs, producers, hence creating beautiful, uplifting and soul-catching events – especially in 2011 when Roger Sanchez with Release Yourself and Mark Knight withToolroom Knights caused such a storm that they’re back at Space again, Roger on Mondays and Mark this time on Wednesdays with BE.
Back to our Monday night stars of summer 2012 and Roger Sanchez, boss of Stealth Records, doesn’t really need an introduction. With a career spanning decades, a discography and personal history synonymous with Balearic beats and Ibiza, he’s simply a legend. This master of sound who has managed to stay on top of his game for so many years – when so many from the era into which he exploded simply couldn’t – promises unique, signature sets full of magic and a deeply special performance each and every time he appears at Ibiza Calling this summer.
Another dedicated artist who’s firmly at the top of his game – especially in Spain – is Juanjo Martin. So committed is he to seeking out only the best that music has to offer, that he’s made a leap back to Space Ibiza, the club he loves best, for 2012 and brings an entirely new notion of mainstream fused with underground. Juanjo has also been extremely busy lately introducing his new concept ‘This is Ibiza’ to music lovers who want to experience a mini-festival of house music with, of course, that intense flavour that you only find in Ibiza.
Visioneer, pioneer DJ, producer and remixer Wally Lopez is set to lay down groovy basslines abound. The man with the clear, colourful vision not only spins and produces some of the finest house tracks that are up there with the hottest today, but he also seems to be on a definite mission to take over the electronic world. Lopez´s brand crosses into having his own label with different divisions - The Factoria, Formula, Facto XL and Factomania Digital - an agency, his own radioshow - La Factoria on Maxima FM and a hugely successful and rather cool clothing brand – Tremenda Wear.
So prepare yourself with precision because Ibiza Calling is going to be something exceptional. If you’re ever wanted to truly experience the spirit of the island then get ready for Mondays at Space Ibiza when the masters will take you on a musical journey.
