A well established gem in Ibiza’s nightlife crown, over the years Be Crazy! has won an army of loyal fans thanks to its unique and interesting line-ups and firm reliance on quality music over fancy production effects. So it felt like a well-deserved move when this season, the concept changed locations to make state-of-the-art superclub HEART Ibiza its new White Isle home. Headed up by sought-after DJ and producer Jean Claude Ades, the party proved to be a perfect match for the futuristic entertainment temple, sharing a forward-thinking philosophy and worldly aesthetic.

Opening its 2018 run on June 1st, the glamorous Be Crazy! crowd followed suit and, together with a host of new converts, filled the cavernous main room week in, week out. Rest assured that the 2018 season has been a rip-roaring success for Ades and his residency – and so it came as no surprise that our host was in great spirits as he stepped behind the decks one last time to see off summer in style at the official closing party.

With Ibiza veteran Aracil on warm-up duties, followed by Ali Nassiri & Bettina, when we arrived through the iconic heart-graffiti-covered door, the party inside was already in full swing. Jean Claude Ades was busy taking us on a dreamy and deep musical journey, full of soul and with an exotic edge. Visibly enjoying himself, the Be Crazy! founder was swaying with his eyes closed as the crowd lapped up the intricate melodies. With minimal lighting bar sensual red and purple lasers, and a backdrop of swirling galaxies projected on HEART Ibiza’s mesmerising LED clad walls, we truly felt catapulted to another universe.

As the night progressed, Ades turned the energy up a notch with his signature galloping basslines intermingled with tribal chants and sitar sounds, whipping the floor into a frenzy with expertly teased drops. Gleefully smiling as he let the anticipation build and build, with friends coming to hug him in the booth to congratulate him on a fantastic season, clubbers were cheering in delight as Ades’ set came to a thunderous conclusion.

No easy act to follow, HOSH was up next and took over the decks cool, calm and collected. Going straight in on a deep bassline with a tech edge, he lured us into the centre of the floor instantly and kept us rooted to the beating heart of the action for some time. Taking no prisoners, he kept the energy in the room sky high with powerful driving beats and infectious rhythms, exotic vocals and flashing images of the most noble of spirit animals in the background transporting us through space and time. With the master of subliminal electronica, Lehar, still to come it was evident that this party wasn’t going to end any time soon, leaving us wanting more way before the curtain eventually had to come down on a big Ibiza summer for Be Crazy!
