Cocoon Ibiza – date 8

Cocoon Ibiza – date 8

That was a proper big one last week and a sign that we are surging into summer. For the second week those early on the terrace met Sven and this time he proceeded to give a masterclass in how to unleash the majestic Richie Hawtin. As a result the terrace was a blast from beginning to end with Richie simply thumping it. Over the way Alex & Digby in the shape of Digby introduced the night with the subtlety stir fried with panache that is becoming their signature. Sonja picked up on that effortlessly and set up a second Ilario main room gig in 3 weeks. He nailed it.nEvery week now is putting the sensual into seismic, the 8th of the 18th season is upon us.

ON THE TERRACE:

RICARDO VILLALOBOS
You cannot escape his genius this year and thankfully this is just the second of his exclusive to Cocoon Ibiza shows this season. Is there anything more comforting and genuinely exciting in life than Ricardo fiddling with your frequencies on the terrace of Amnesia? Surely not.

DORIAN PAIC
The quiet maestro is getting noisier. Out of the studio and on the road is our Dorian and behind the decks he is making some statements that are long overdue. Do not miss him warming up for his old friend tonight

ALEX & DIGBY
It will be Digby again flying the flag for this duo of endless possibility. A dream of a show at Cocoon in the Park was followed by last Monday in Amnesia and now please make the most of this Monday. You heard it here first

IN THE MAIN ROOM:

NINA KRAVIZ
The third from Nina already this season and if we are not mistaken you will emerge at the end of the night wiser and wetter. The fearless Nina Kraviz has news for your beating heart

CARL CRAIG
Just one chance to see another Detroit ledge with us this season and please do take it and join us right at the front. A little tip though. Formentera is also on Carls Cocoon menu. But CC in the main room, we do that first. Anything can happen with the big speakers

tINI
And fresh from blowing away that crowd in Tipic last Thursday at our Formentera fry up is this curling curator of sound. Jump on some class early doors tonight. It is the wonderful tINI opening the doors to the main room

Cocoon Formentera – date 5

Ibiza & Formentera

Cocoon Formentera – date 5

For the first time it was an Adriatique Thursday last week and the two Adrians did exactly what we hoped and massaged the Tipic dancefloor. An irresistible set. It was the perfect steamy music for the first week of July and it will not be the last time. Our very own FDEZ set the tone with his own brand of kinky smooth and the night just went too quickly. It is a simple fact, you have to come early on a Thursday for the full experience.
Number 5 then and we up the tempo:

tINI
Our long time friend and favourite rolls into Formentera for some up close and personal. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face and some tap tap in your toes. Come along tonight for a Tipic tonic and you will for certain be hunting tINI down on the 17th in the main room of Amnesia and a huge Cocoon Monday featuring Ricardo Villalobos, Nina Kraviz and Carl Craig

FABE
Welcome Fabe, a big welcome in fact. We have been checking out your Salty Nuts label and liking what we hear. Producing, collaborating and generally making waves. Now the chance to hear what you dish out on the dancefloor. We will be up at the front.

Into July we go and the water here is crystal clear and so inviting. Have a long swim, dry off and join us early this Thursday night.

Cocoon Ibiza – date 7

Cocoon Ibiza – date 7

If you got down early last week you had that rare pleasure of a night, a whole night, with Sven Väth. It was a trip and a half that swayed and soared just like the crowd who also roared their approval for the riotous live set from Ame. Over the way Dana Ruh played a stunning opening set. The girl has wings, and Nastia had a fizzy crowd and Adam Beyer simply sprayed excellence. We have a king in the main room. And how lucky you are because this 7th week, if history tells us anything, is going to be one of this seasons monsters:

On the terrace :

SVEN VÄTH
Amazingly for the 2nd week running you can rock up to Amnesia as the doors are opening, waltz onto the terrace and find some early evening vinyl being waved around and played by the guv´nor himself. In a repeat of one oft he biggest ever Cocoon nights last year as Sven will open for a bona fide big boy.

RICHIE HAWTIN
Here we are then for the 2nd show from Richie, on the terrace again, but this time with Sven kicking it off – a dream team that has never let us down. A glorious night of music and a night where you need to find a spot on the dancefloor and listen to masters at work. Richie is exclusive to Cocoon this year, make the most of it.

In the main room :

ALEX&DIGBY
And welcome welcome Alex & Digby. Two gigs in two weeks coming your way from two of the brightest sparks out there. Sven was on the case early as you will know from the last two Sound oft the Season compilations. With a new album imminent we really must recommend more than ever an early arrival at the club on the 10th July.

SONJA MOONEAR
A night of 2´s. For her second show this season Sonja takes a walk to her wild side and will be peppering the main room with her unique assaults on the senses. A new favourite fort he Cocoon masses and rightly so.

ILARIO ALICANTE
2nd main room headliner for Ilario this season as his star continues to ascend and this is just a part of a 2017 tour schedule that is practically as hectic as Sven’s. Make a point of investigating the reasons why. Thumpingly good.

You are spoilt for choice

Cocoon Formentera – date 4

Ibiza & Formentera

Cocoon Formentera – date 4

It was an Alicante Thursday last week for the first time in 2017 and the atmosphere was Balearic but, as always with Ilario, the best sort of Italian twists and turns are included along with a crowd that just lap it up. Cesar Vinzent made sure everything was ready. Class in a classy club …

Number 4 then and more music that is going to sound so very right here :

ADRIATIQUE
There are plenty of duos out there nowadays. These two Adrians finish each others sentences and behind the decks there is the sort of chemistry that fast tracks careers and from our point of view produces finely tuned sets of music that take all your attention. Because you got sucked on to the dancefloor immediately

FDEZ
Our first FDEZ and is long overdue. Exquisite taste and oh those boyish looks. Come early and feel effervescent very very quickly
It is July. Formentera is beckoning. Make a plan that involves this delicious island and make sure it includes a Thursday.

Cocoon Ibiza – date 6

We surfed through the 5th week already can you believe ? Every year this happens, time wisps and wanders away. We try and keep our feet on the ground and focus but last week was Sven and Acid Pauli on the terrace. Could not miss that – or Ilario, Josh Wink or Konstantin over the way
No easier this week, the number 6:

On the terrace :

SVEN VÄTH ALL NIGHT LONG
For the first time this year your only distraction from a full night with the guv´nor is the juicy interlude below. All night long means what it says. Jog down to Amnesia soon after 12 and the man himself will be waving records around and getting things on the road. You can choose a big fat space on the dancefloor and really get to know your chauffeur for the night, a fabulous driver.

ÂME LIVE
We specialise in this. Every season we slot in for your dancing pleasure the artists that bring something different live and direct to the table. Cocoon veteran Ame is the perfect insertion into a Sven All Night Long. Do not miss, his only live set for us this season.

In the main room:

ADAM BEYER
Little needs to be said here. So consistently brilliant these last many months on a global warming basis yet we reserve the right to be biased and say that his Monday night sets in Amnesia are just so judderingly good. Furthermore they seem to evolve, to interlink. This is Adam Beyer in the main room for Cocoon and please jump on board.

NASTIA
The first of 2 dates for Nastia in Amnesia with us and quite right to. A proper flagbearer for hardnosed yet rhythmic techno with a twist. A Dj with panache. Keep your eyes open in August. Cocoon Tipic in Formentera. You will want more Nastia.

DANA RUH
And also the first of two for Dana Ruh – which rhymes. And so does she. Music for the head , the heart and the feet. A blindingly good way to start a big night in the main room.
