For their penultimate party of the season, Glitterbox brought another diverse and quality-heavy line up to Space Ibiza, as Soul Clap, Breakbot, Joey Negro, Juan MacLean and DJ Antz provided a night high on thrills, with House and Disco anthems aplenty.
Warming things up on the Terrace, Breakbot romped through a selection of his exceptional edits and remixes, with tracks of particular note including his reworkings of Busy P’s ‘This Song’ and Matthew Dear’s 2010 ‘You Put a Smell On Me’ – both of which went down incredibly well with the steadily building Glitterbox faithful.
By now, Savage’s latest dance crew Nutbags had begun to infiltrate the dancefloor, their relentless energy and outrageous costumes proving an infectious foil to the positive musical vibes emanating from behind the decks. Nutbags made their Ibiza debut last week, and have already made a significant impression on the White Isle. By this point, Juan MacLean – another Glitterbox favourite – had taken over from Breakbot, initially lowering the tempo with a few Underground House cuts before raising the roof with Purple Disco Machine’s remix of his own ‘A Simple Design’: the party had most definitely started, and by the time Joey Negro took to the decks, the Terrace dancefloor was jumping.
Joey Negro worked his way skilfully thorough a selection of Disco and soulful House, demonstrating his rich musical heritage with his selections. Ron Basejam ‘When I Hear That Music’, Jimmy The Twin ‘Midnight Shuffle’ and Eli Escobar ‘Seein You’ were dropping in quick succession, before he laid waste to the dancefloor with the anthemic Jim Burgess mix of Change ‘A Lover’s Holiday’.
By the time this week’s headliners Soul Clap stepped up to make their Glitterbox debut, the atmosphere inside space was electric. The duo romped through a bumpin selection of Funk-influenced House, and brought a fitting finale to another amazing Glitterbox night. Now only the closing remains… Buy your tickets and enjoy the last party of the season with Dimitri From Paris, Todd Terry and many more artists on Friday 25th September.
