As renowned seaside destination Blue Marlin Ibiza’s summer schedule begins to heat up, this Friday music lovers were treated to a much welcome cool breeze in the shape of Agoria’s brand new DRIFT residency. Taking over the famous outdoor booth every week until September 27th, the French DJ and producer brought with him his signature dreamy house and techno sound as well as support from South African selector Culoe de Song for the inaugural event.

As one of the island’s most iconic addresses, Cala Jondall restaurant and bar Blue Marlin Ibiza has built a reputation on its stunning location, outstanding hospitality and fine culinary offering. However, every year the venue’s musical programme gets tweaked and polished to perfection, getting the mix of legendary electronic music artists and cutting-edge talent just right! Agoria makes a tasty addition to the 2019 roster, ensuring that Blue Marlin Ibiza once more exceeds across the board.

When we arrived, the seaside hotspot’s fashionable clientele were enjoying a breezy dinner with their toes in the sand while those who had been luxuriating on the spacious daybeds in the sun were joining diners on the wooden terrace to toast the sunset with an expertly mixed cocktail or crisp glass of wine. Looking completely at home in his new White Isle home, Agoria was grooving along to his own ethereal sound that perfectly captivated the magical atmosphere of dusk.

It wasn’t long before the French sound architect took the pace up a level with irresistible beats and demanding basslines, as dancers in coral dresses trimmed with gold chains and gladiator sandals appeared on the roof to show off their moves. By the time Agoria dropped a remix of Michael Jackson hit Thriller, there was nobody left on the terrace able to resist a boogie. Continuing on a decidedly funky note, the turntable maestro finished his set with an infectious electric guiltar solo layered over uplifting beats before seguing into his final track of the night, To Love You by KiNK feat. Rachel Row.

Making a welcome return to Blue Marlin Ibiza after having dazzled at the venue’s Grand Opening just a few weeks earlier, Culoe de Song was up next and began his set on a hypnotic bassline that pulsated into the darkening night sky like a steady heartbeat. Proudly paying homage to his cultural heritage, the mesmerising melodies were soon enhanced with infectious drums and exotic tribal chanting. As the night progressed, the up-and-coming South African star showed of his technical skills by cleverly playing with sound elements, adding a tech edge to his world music electronica. It was a night to dance underneath the stars and lose yourself in the music… and the perfect way to start the weekend in style at Blue Marlin Ibiza!
