It's just been announced that this years worst kept secret on the island is definitely happening. Richie Hawtin will take up a new residency at Space on Thursdays! Here are some of the ENTER. facts that we were sent;
- ENTER. will take place every Thursday from 5th July to 20th September
- ENTER. will be promoted by Hawtin and his M-NUS team in collaboration with Space.
- ENTER.Sake will see the launch of the island’s first dedicated Sake bar.
- ENTER.Kehakuma will see Hawtin collaborate with Space’s underground night.
- Kehakuma will continue in its own right before and after ENTER.’s 12 dates.
- ENTER. pre-party will take place weekly at Space from 10pm with big guests.
We all know that Richie Hawtin is at the forefront of combining music with technology, as he has pushed forward with his Plastikman 1.5, 2.0 etc tour, and so his ENTER. concept continues much in the same vain. Richie is also a huge fan of Japanese culture, Sake etc, and so the collaboration with Kehakuma seems a perfect match. The idea is to have each of the 4 rooms involved in the ENTER. concept 'touched by technology'. That includes live internet feeds, vizualisations, interactive installations, culminating in so much more than simply a club with DJs and music. The end result is a full on experience and assault of the senses designed to inform and educate you about all of Richie's passions - music, technology, Japanese Sake, art, entertainment and design.
Musically Richie will be programming all of the lineups himself, and in La Terraza in collaboration with the Kehakuma team (ENTER.Kehakuma), so expect a heavy presence from his Minus label, whilst Richie will be playing all of the dates too, along with friends and collaborators.
“As electronic music continues to develop around the world it becomes more important to invite people into its very core, where music, technology and ideas interplay to create unique and wonderful new worlds. Ibiza is the perfect place to further explore my event concepts that have been developing since the early Warehouse parties I threw in Detroit and more recently with CONTAKT & Plastikman Live. It is my hope that by combining many different elements together I can heighten the experience of the audience and place a significant memory into their subconscious. Ibiza is the perfect location for continuing this long-term experiment and ambition of mine.” - Richie Hawtin
More details on this once lineups have been announced.
