Cocoon Ibiza – date 18

Ibiza & Formentera

Cocoon Ibiza – date 18

Heavens preserve us. We have a total monster coming your way. Everything has had a ring a ding ding these precious previous weeks. A fierce fiesta last Monday had Sven and Ilario rejoicing on the terrace until the sun came up and Nina Kraviz pummelling the main room after Dana Ruh had teased and twirled her way through the early hours. The taste left in our mouths was once again so sweet and dense we will try and bottle it. Hanging out with you lot on a Monday as the season wends its way to the close – hard to put into words.

Here we go with what might well be a classic. The penultimate gig, the last from our two exclusive heroes :

On the terrace :

RICARDO VILLALOBOS
It was Zip 2 weeks ago. Ricardo followed the Perlon prince with a precocious set that flew around the terrace and sealed a really memorable night of music. 3 vital artists seamlessly delivered an experience we will never forget. Tonight two more of his closest are here for another voyage. We truly do not think you can get this anywhere else. This crowd . This setting.

RARESH
The utterly wonderful Raresh is second up. His first visit this year and we have been dribbling about this and having our sleep patterns disrupted. Whenever Ricardo and Raresh are on the same stage just somehow be there. They are going to move you .

SONJA MOONEAR
The fourth and final Cocoon of the year from a sonic Swiss siren who just happens to be the most perfect person to invite you into the night. 2 outstanding joyous sets on the terrace under her belt. Set your alarm

In the Club :

RICHIE HAWTIN
Oh my goodness. That gig on the terrace at the beginning of September was something else entirely. It was the brilliant Adam Beyer and then that breathtaking Hawtin set. It really was – well, you just had to be there. Tonight is not only the last of the Richie exclusive Ibiza shows for Cocoon but it is the first in the main room. We are going to get the full treatment. We are going to be hypnotised

MATADOR LIVE
Well named. We pride ourselves every season on presenting the cream of the Live performers. This year is no exception, some stunning sets, and we climax with the explosive talent that is Matador. Gavin is going to cook your goose, do not miss a second of this.

FABIO FLORIDO
Welcome to the big house Fabio. You already made some waves over in Tipic on our Cocoon Thursday’s and we look forward to hearing your naughty tunes again tonight, setting up a classic in the Club.

There have been some very special and different affairs landing every Monday in Amnesia. This one is going to pop your cork. There is something in the air.

Cocoon Ibiza – date 17

Last week was Sven all night long in the main room with some help from the masked marauder Redshape. It had been coming, it was explosive with Sven last Monday night. One of our loudest and a set of the season in the Club. Ricardo had two of his best chums with him on the terrace. Zip and Dorian Paic brought their immense knowledge and vinyl verve in support. It was an evening to be treasured yet again and now we head into the final furlong

with the a crowd of music lovers by our side – the 18th September features :

On the terrace :

SVEN VÄTH
The extraordinary year of Sven, the guv’nor bounds into September like a gazelle. He is a force of nature and there is nothing more to be said. Just enjoy whatever is thrown your way tonight, we are all scratching our heads yet moving our shoes.

ILARIO ALICANTE
Ilario is chasing Sven on the air mile ticker. The lad has been everywhere but tonight he is back here for a rare terrace appearance following his main room shows this year. Those of you that have seen his Tipic shows for Cocoon will be all over this one. A great Ilariyeario.

In the Club :

NINA KRAVIZ
The ascending star that is Nina descends again on the main room of Amnesia and once again we have no idea what to expect. Her shows have been so different and so brilliantly provocative. An important artist shuts the room tonight and this is her last show of the year with us. Miss it not.

DANA RUH
Dana is the sublime middle of this main room night. A hidden treasure starting to get the traction and attention her daring approach to music deserves. Dana is the gravy as everyone and his dog who has seen her recently will testify. We will be somewhere near you.

tINI
tINI knows how to get you organised as she showed with such gusto at the end of August, again in the Club. tINI always finds the tone and then plays with it and you. Effortlessly bright, always with a twist. Arrive early for the twists.

Always arrive early for Cocoon Ibiza. There are no fillers, only first quality fish in our tanks.

Cocoon Formentera – Closing Party

Ibiza & Formentera

Cocoon Formentera – Closing Party

Ilario signed off his annual series of Formentera fry ups with so much gusto that it almost got out of hand. No one would leave. Including Ilario – and the wonderful Dana Ruh was not going anywhere either even though her job was done as beautifully as ever. Not sure what this chemistry is but we will all be back for more in 2018 because it just works.

Spooky to mention 2018 but it must be put on the table. Welcome to the final hurrah. This really is the last of the Thursdays that revitalise all of those areas that need a bit of tender loving care when the going gets tough. The last one is different. Forget all the nurturing and let your hair all the way down:

SVEN VÄTH
Last year it was an accident that Sven closed the season – a rescheduled show that was sillily brilliant. This time it is all planned and if ever there was a time for you to make a plan it is now. All night long in Amnesia on Monday turns in to one of those rare occasions where you can see the guv’nor and his fingernails plucking away at those heavy bags. The last night of the season – surprises aplenty.

MAURIZIO SCHMITZ
The too cool for school Maurizio has previous here, both with and without Sven. One show already in 2017 and it is no surprise that he was selected to offer up some more thoughts for your stuttering toes tonight. He has a way of setting a mood as you will see. This is the night to arrive when the cock crows

It is the 14th and we go out all guns blazing.
Sven Vath is in Tipic with you tonight!

Cocoon Ibiza – date 16

The first September night of Cocoon 18 and we had one of the contenders for party of the year without a doubt. In a seething packed Amnesia it was difficult to know where to look or where to listen. On the terrace Hito started and Adam Beyer then delivered a simply marvellous experience to complement a Richie Hawtin masterclass. Over the way Nastia gave way to a brilliantly ferocious Slam and Ben Klock was just on fire. On the 4th September one of those Cocoon nights happened. Stunning.

It has been a series of unforgettable Mondays. Now look at this week:

In the Club:
SVEN VÄTH
Yes, an all night long in the club and we know a few of you have been waiting for this for a while. And remember Sven has had 2 weeks away from HQ. Join on the dancefloor from the doors opening for a Sven occasion in the main room of Amnesia. What could be finer?

REDSHAPE LIVE
Oh, there is a serious interlude in the middle. You may have come across this masked invader by now, you certainly need to come across one of his live sets because they have been pulling up trees all over Europe. A classic club night where we simply have no idea quite what will happen. You just gotta be there.
On the terrace:

RICARDO VILLALOBOS
Or here. Ric has perhaps his favourite cohort in the house tonight. The Perlon prince joins, normally they are in adjacent studios in Berlin but tonight one of those wonderful rare occasions where they share the same stage. Every Ricardo this year has thrilled, this tonight is the last but one of his exclusive Ibiza performances.

ZIP
Not one to shout about himself so let us do it for him. Perlon we mentioned, one of the most influential imprints there ever will be. But ask anyone who loves the music we all love, there is a chance at some point they encountered Zip behind the decks. Then they get poetic. He just does things no one else does. Come and witness for yourselves

DORIAN PAIC
He was a delight here with Ricardo mid July, as he always is frankly, and no surprise they join forces again tonight – this time in a Zip sandwich. If for some reason you had been told by a doctor not to dance for a week then tonight you could find a little corner, a place to perch on the terrace at 12 o’clock and close your eyes. Artists at work. 3 very special ones.
Sven in the main room and Ricardo on the terrace with so much more besides. These last parties – remarkable. Sorry to get repetitive.

Cocoon Formentera – date 13

Last week we lost our Mind Against for reasons outside of their control. Planes that did not do what they should have done. Los Suruba stepped in at the last moment and these two feisty fellows put in a flamboyant performance. Delmar and Alvaro are cheeky chaps and we will be seeing them again. Mr J was in position right from the start. Thank you all three for creating such a super night. It was bubbly, very bubbly.Now back to business and we are pretty certain how this night is going to go. It will be bubbly:

ILARIO ALICANTE
Rampaging around Europe and beyond, noshing up the main room of Amnesia on a couple of Mondays makes it clear that Ilario is having a year to remember. Nothing, absolutely nothing, would stop him turning up here though. You know why by now.

DANA RUH
Dana is a very special person and performer. Quietly she keeps doing her thing and this thing she does is the absolute nuts. Class in a glass and please join us for another portion of Dana.

It is lucky 13.
Ilario Alicante and Dana Ruh.
Fizzing tonight.
