The weather is warming, the tourists are coming, the clubs are opening – and Black Coffee is back doing what he does best at Hï Ibiza. After two stellar seasons, this residency is etching itself in the Ibiza clubbing history books. Black Coffee is setting a benchmark on how to do a club night properly. At this year’s opening party, he raised the bar yet again. There’s no stopping Black Coffee.

Rumors resident Guy Gerber was tonight’s guest. His productions have sound-tracked so many Ibiza moments and his selection skills are equally as accomplished. He’s been coming to this island for years now and having him on opening duties for Black Coffee’s residency was an inspired choice. He ramped-up the Theatre to a whole new level and as his set was coming to a close, the cool Israeli teased us with his timeless sample of Colonel Abraham’s Trapped. What To Do eerily entered the Playa d’en Bossa superclub and looped for what seemed an eternity. When it finally dropped, the whole place erupted.

As the dust settled after that special Guy Gerber moment, the main man entered the booth and embraced his guest for the evening. It was finally time to see Black Coffee back on the White Isle after what seemed like an endless winter – but he was ready to pick up exactly where we left off. Bookazoo by Karyendasoul was a rapturous selection that is definitively Black Coffee. Blending thunderous tribal drum beats with a piercing electronic melody, it’s hard to define this kind of music. It felt formidable and fearsome. The darkened Theatre was ready for a hair-raising evening and Black Coffee had set the stage.

The talented South African selector took no prisoners on this night. The winter shackles were ripped-off for another exciting summer – and with guests such as Damian Lazarus, Jamie Jones, Loco Dice, &ME and many more to come, it’s going to be another special season at Hï Ibiza. You have until Saturday, October 5th to experience it yourself.
