Redoubtable party-starters Bugged Out have a trinity of top-notch Ibiza nights in the works.
The promoters haven’t stepped foot on the isle since 2009, and will be making up for lost time with three events at new Ibiza spot Sankeys. July 9 will host pan-genre, pan-global magpie Diplo. Mr. Pentz might divide opinion, but he definitely knows how to keep a dancefloor locked down. He’ll be jointed by associate and collaborator A-Trak, who’ll be showcasing his turntable smarts and ear for hip-hop and electro. Mosca will be representing British interests, as will the ever-eclectic Jackmaster.
On July 28, electro titan Boys Noize will be at the helm. DJ Sneak, Chicago house DJ extraordinaire, will also be adding weight to the bill. He’ll be joined by fellow Illnoise-maker Cajmere, aka Green Velvet, aka Curtis Jones. The real gem on the bill is arguably Blawan, whose mutant techno productions have made for some of the most invigorating listening of the last two years.
Things wrap up on September 26, when Basement Jaxx will lead the bill in Ibiza’s closing week. The crossover duo are invariably a fun prospect in a live setting, and should provide a banner finale to the run. They’ll be joined by Instra:mental trendmaker Boddika, currently mining the 130bpm range for strange new treasures. Jackmaster will again be rounding out the bill.
Each night runs from 10.00pm until 6.00am at Sankeys, Ibiza. Further tickets and information are available from the Bugged Out website.
