With only one more show to go for the season, Cadenza Vagabundos returned to Space Ibiza yesterday for a roaring night, with Luciano welcoming Mirko Loko and Chica Paula in the Vagabundos Room and with Alter Ego hosting the Sunset Room. Cadenza rising star gAS took over the Premiere Etage all night long.

Luciano’s set was truly emotional as he dedicated his 3 hours of music to his beloved Chile, which got struck by a mammoth earthquake on Wednesday Sep. 17th in the Coquimbo region, causing several casualties and more than 1 million people fleeing from their homes. He also posted a video on his Facebook page to send his positive thoughts to the human beings caught in this tragedy.

Meanwhile, Mirko Loko’s Live Set showcased his unique style of layers, polyrhythms, shifting moods of dark and light, highclass and low-slung melodies, a look back upon his decade long list of releases on labels like Border Community, Wagon Repair, Planet E, Desolat and Visionquest.

Chica Paula’s bold fusion between fairytale-like Ambient, House, Techno and Electropop proved to be a winning formula last night, and the people in the Terrace truly enjoyed her warm up set as something different and quite unexpected.

Italian rising star gAS entertained the crowds with his Deep melodies and catchy grooves all night long on the Premiere Etage. His Split EP on Cadenza was released at the beginning of August to enthusiastic reviews, and the guy lived up to that with a selection taking in the best of the last 20 years in House Music.

The Sunset Room was hosted by Alter Ego last night: Hope Recordings A&R man and former Tour DJ for Massive Attack Nick Warren was on the decks, emanating a perfect club mix of driving percussions and soaring musicality, soaking everyone in melody, drenching them in sound.

Israeli Guy J has established himself as a very sophisticated and emotive producer in Electronic Music, whether it be his sensual, hypnotic take on House Music, his deeply textured Techno or his wondrous Ambient material, his work always touches with a magic and emotion that few rival.

Recognized as a leading light in the ever-growing Tel Aviv underground music scene, Guy Mantzur is also the highly respected resident DJ at the city’s most popular club - The Cat & The Dog – where his unique style and unrivaled technique allow him to regularly play alongside a very diverse selection of international stars. As a result, Guy’s skills behind the decks have recently been recognized at the prestigious XL Awards, where he received the accolade of “Israel’s Best Underground DJ 2013”.

DJing from the age of 11, James Gill has played in some of the US East Coast’s biggest clubs alongside major international talent. A trained audio engineer and studio producer, his productions are supported by numerous underground artists. His 2015 release “Solarium” on Hernan Cattaneo’s Sudbeat Recordings saw a turning point for his original work, and his unmistakable flow during his sets has impressed crowds from the USA to Europe. Luciano, Valentino Kanzyani, Ryan Crosson, Michel Cleis and more guests will say goodbye to this season on Sunday 27th September. Join them and buy your tickets for Vagabundos at Space Ibiza
