Review: We Love, 17th June 2012

Sunday's dance music mecca keeps showing us why this party isn't one to miss..


By Spotlight

The We Love parties at Space keep on pushing the boundaries of electronic dance music on the island and this Sunday's party wasn't any different – with a line up bulging with some of the biggest and most cutting edge DJ's and producers on the planet, I knew we were in for another biggie!

As we arrive, we enter the infamous Sunset Terrace to catch Space regular Jonathan Ulysses banging out some chunky tech beats to get everyone right in the mood. Playing a remix of Roger Sanchez “Another Chance” around the 11pm mark and getting a huge “hands in the air” reaction from the crowd - we knew this was going to set the tone for the evening.

We take a little wander around the venue before the madness fully begins and head up to the Premier Etage to check out Ibiza legend Alfredo and his son Jaime playing some soulful sexy house. Most notably was a mash up of “Lovebirds – I Want You In My Soul” and “Florence & The Machine – You Got The Love” going down a treat with the international crowd. Arguably the most chilled out room at We Love along with El Salon (next to the Main Terrace), it's a great area to get away from the madness that goes on below before heading back and getting right in the middle of it all.

After enough chilling out and preparing for the “Circus of Sound”, we find ourselves in the Terraza where The 2 Bears are finishing up their set. Then rocks up the very tall and blonde figure that is the queen of jacking house -  Heidi. It's fair to say we were blown away by her set and it absolutely lifted the roof off the Terraza. It was as if she thought to herself before her set, “I'm going to find every single banger in my CD case and play them all tonight!”. Well, that's what myself and most of the crowd thought. Her set was relentless, producing banger after banger leaving nobody standing still. A huge round of applause was given at the end of her set before Agoria opened up with Tom Demac's track “Dirty Honey”.

Meanwhile in the Discoteca, Space hero and 11 year veteran of We Love James Zabiela begins one of four curations with his brand new label “Born Electric”. Over the summer, in the lead up to his label launching in September, James will play and bring his new label buddies along to rock the We Love crowd. This week he brought along the ex-Dubstep-now-turned-techno DJ Paul Rose a.k.a Scuba, Swedish duo Skudge, Midland and Jem Haynes. We make our way in and catch Scuba absolutely tearing the Discoteca a new one with his heavy and bass-driven techno beats literally vibrating the whole room via the enormous Funktion 1 Sound system. As we are stomping our way in, he's playing Maceo Plex's smasher “Deez Nutz” which literally had the crowd in a twist.

We muster up just enough energy for hold on for James Zabiela's set, but somehow his set gives us some energy I didnt realise I had. Starting his set using his iPad and a pyramid of lasers over him, he created huge suspense before a big drop and sending the 4.30am crowd wild. You could see why Space keep on inviting James back year on year just from his passion and his on-stage manner which vents energy across the whole room. We can't wait to see him again over the next few We Love parties.

Yet again the We Love parties show why they are top dogs on a Sunday in Ibiza. A brilliant variety of DJ's and sounds as well as a great friendly international crowd that know they're music, we will most certainly be returning to We Love over the next Sundays of the season!
