Paradise is back on the island with an epic opening showcase bursting with underground heavyweights. Its first party back, on Wednesday June 22, had the whole club in uproar as another season got off to a flyer. Having spent the rest of the year off the island introducing itself to some of the world’s best underground clubs, it was time to return to its spiritual home and reconnect with the clubbers that love it.

Aptly named, Paradise equates to musical heaven for the underground music lover. Entering its fifth season and longest one yet, Paradise has spent another year touring the planet with its own stage at many of the most successful festivals. It comes back to its birthplace in Ibiza with a spectacular array of residents and guests. An island favorite, the party enjoyed a full house on opening night. Welcoming revelers four hours earlier than usual for its first party of the summer, UK producer Robert James started the season in broad daylight and early-bird revelers got to enjoy Paradise under the Ibiza sunshine, as planes zoomed by.

Going early to DC-10 is always worth the extra party-effort, as one gets to experience the club in both its day and night versions. When the sun began its descent behind the hills, it was time for a mythical b2b between residents Jamie Jones and Richy Ahmed. In a display of UK talent, they got the season rolling in grand style with a very bouncy tech-house blending Jamie’s melodic deep-tech and Richy’s eclectic sound. With dabs of psych and tribal notes, their b2b was the perfect opening as we danced in the red hues of the comfortably busy garden.

As day faded into night, the rest of the club opened its doors and the beat dove further underground, by sunset the whole of DC10 came alive. While Luca Cazal got the Terrace going, UK talent Russ Yallop was at it hard with a dark liveliness in the Main Room. Traced pyramids and cubes in blue and red hanging from the ceiling, geometrical figures raced behind him in the DJ booth until Silvie Loto came on strong thumping away with a spectacular musical display. Meanwhile in the Terrace KiNK had a live station set up on the dancefloor. Out of control, his live set was beyond belief. With every toy in the store, he dug up sounds from the entire spectrum of techno and house, twisting sound around from the past into the present, raising his controller in the air, KiNK engaged with the crowd.

Dancers in colourful UV bathing suits, otherworldly jackets, futuristic tops and knee-high boots appeared around the room, as Nicola Moudaber came on with an galloping bassline and the afterhour groove was on by 1am. In the Main Room, Route94’s nice solid beat was followed by another UK talent, as wAFF took to the console, PAWSA hanging out in the DJ booth with him, while dancers did their thing in front of them and rainbow beams filled the room. Before long it was 3am and time for the next b2b of the night, Jamie Jones and The Martinez Brothers. They the entire crowd, hands in the air pressing together as the beat drove deeper. There was something happening everywhere you looked, such was the intensity of the opening line up, next door wAFF handed to Dubfire with a very dramatic cut, before he set off on an always intense set, with Nicole by his side, until Richy Ahmed went b2b with Patrick Topping. DC-10 is about the music, raw pure musical energy. Everyone is on the same level and close together, creating a vibe that the DJs play off. It’s clubbing in its simplest form and undoubtedly its most effective. It’s Paradise!
