Malanga Café has been the scene of numerous outstanding local gatherings throughout the winter and that looks set to continue into the summer season. Upgrade, a new party concept from respected UK DJ/ producer Buckley, takes over the venue on Friday May 18, where he will be joined by Nightmares On Wax (DJ set) and Bekka Rawkins. The fun kicks off at 11pm, if you are lucky enough to be o the island, this is a chance to enjoy one of the finest atmospheres outside of the famous clubs.


Buckley has had a significant musical impact on both Leeds, where he enjoyed a residency at legendary party Back To Basics, and the UK in general for over two decades – as a DJ occupying the booth at many of the country’s best parties; as a producer, providing chunky beats that have taken pride of place in the boxes of many of his peers and as a promoter, offering clubbers a fantastic place to get their groove on. Having taken the decision to move to Ibiza permanently, an island, as an artist, he has enjoyed an ongoing love affair with, he is wasting no time putting his mark on the local scene. Upgrade is his new party concept and to get things up and running he has called on another former Leeds local and internationally acclaimed DJ/ producer Nightmares On Wax as well as island favourite Bekka Rawkins.


Upgrade presents the perfect start to the weekend, a collection of artists passionate about their music and with an ability to translate that passion into energy on the floor by making people dance. It’s an effective combination and one that offers an exciting proposition for all those out and about this weekend. After a week hard at work, Ibiza loves to kick back and do what it does best – party. With these three artists and this particular destination, that means an electric atmosphere, filled with the finest beats and a stack of smiling faces!
