Thursday nights in Ibiza have proven to be a tough time for club promoters this year, with the likes of Monza, Cream and new boy on the block, Danny Tenaglia´s Be @ Space, all competing to be the top night in town.
On Thursday 18 September, we made a trip to Privilege to see how Monza was doing in the battle for Thursday, and to be fair it´s been another strong season for them.
During the course of last year, Monza gained a reputation with many workers and clued-up ravers, as one of the better underground parties in Ibiza.
With regular guests like M.A.N.D.Y., Magda, Konrad Black and Marco Carola, the music offered a dark combo of minimal-tech / house and a great party atmosphere grew.
This summer has not been as busy as previous years, but this of course can be applied to all the clubs on the island, but Monza have continued to put on some great parties with the same underground spirit.
In charge of the music on our return last Thursday was Paco Osuna and Alex Under in the main room, while Magda (above) and Bruno Monteverde were in the Coco Loco.
Tonight Magda was exceptional and the Coco Loco room was really on fire, as she played some great tech-electro. It was the first time we´d seen her so it was more than a pleasant surprise.
Meanwhile in the main room, the party was in full flow with a strong set by Paco Osuna and Alex Under keeping the dance floor packed and the music flowing. The party crowd here has a true European base, with a really cosmopolitan feeling.
Monza still have another couple of weeks to run until their closing party, which takes place on Thursday 2 October and features a huge line-up including Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano, M.A.N.D.Y. and Tobi Neuman.
If you´re in town for the closing parties over that weekend, this will be one party to get involved with !
