10 tracks that ruled Music On opening 2018

Marco Carola and co return to Amnesia in style. Big crowd. Big tunes. Big look.

If it's a Friday and you're on Ibiza, then chances are Music On at Amnesia ranks pretty high on your agenda.

No doubt one of the island's biggest current techno parties, Marco Carola's behemoth has gained a loyal fanbase. Even after six seasons, the party is still packing them in. Naturally, there's a strong Italian contingent. The Neapolitan party-starter is idolised in these parts.

With a line-up boasting a core of Music On regulars as well as Signor Carola himself, plus the promise of rays beaming through the terrace skylight, we headed to San Rafael to break our Music On duct for 2018.

Here are the ten tracks that defined the opening party.

Pablo Muzi3k | Watermeal (Uranobeat Mix) | Uranobeat Records | 2018

As we walked into the venue, we were greeted to this number from Music On residents NEVERDOGS in the Club Room. It was the indicator the night was going to be a good one.

Alex Neuret | Fk U Story (Original Mix) | Brock Wild Records | 2018

Stacey Pullen played from a different booth from the centre of the dancefloor. This track with its memorable Dr Dre sample worked the crowd. Detroit street attitude from the city of techno's second-generation star filled the room.

Ben Teufel & Peppe Markese | Be The Change (Original Mix) | 2018

As we headed to the Terrace, Music On resident LEON was teeing things up nicely for the big man. This number with its tribal undertones had the dance floor shaking.

Luca M | Phaze (Original Mix)| BomBeatz | 2018

As 03:00 approached and the masses readied themselves for the coming of Carola, LEON had one more rocket left in his arsenal. With its trippy sci-fi breakdown, he handed over a pumped up terrace.

Jansons & Senzala | JNZ | Four Thirty Two | 2018

With the terrace now filled, Carola started off on a housier trip with this forthcoming, future anthem from Jansons & Senzala. Dancing mandatory.

Elio Riso & Lucio Spain | Breaking Minds | Deeperfect | 2016

This track marked a landmark in proceedings. With the crowd eating out of the palm of his hand, Carola removed the brakes and moved into fifth gear.

Cloonee | Real Thing (Iglesias Remix) | Under No Illusion | 2018

As lights flickered, the S&M clad Music On girls gyrated on the podium and CO2 was set off. It was as though Music On had never been away. A sea of clubbers lost their inhibitions to one of the island's cult DJs.

Lil' Mo' Ying Yang | Reach (Kenny Dope Remix) | Strictly Rhythm | 2008

With those sirens echoing around the Terrace we couldn't imagine a better choice of track at 04:00 in the morning.

Burnski | The Hours | Holic Trax | 2015

As proceedings closed in on the fabled Music On finale, Carola dropped this body moving track. The room was alive.

4th Measure Man | 4 You | 4 To The Floor Records | 1993

You want one more? Of course you do. How about this classic from 1993? After having faded out, Carola brings the music back as we basked in the early morning sunshine, a smile from ear to ear. The status quo has been restored. Music On reigns.

As if it were ever in dispute, Marco Carola still rules the roost on the Amnesia terrace. All onboard next Friday for round two? You'd better believe it.

Marco Carola returns with Loco Dice, Hector Couto, LEON and Anna Tur next Friday 25 May.

Tickets for the Opening Party Part Two and 19 other shows are available now. See you on that Terrace.
