Martin Solveig has enjoyed the best summer yet for his My House residency in Pacha. Every Wednesday he delivered an upbeat big room soundtrack to clubbers from all over the world, joined by a variety of talented guests. The French artist has a large loyal following, thanks to his ability to straddle both commercial and credible floors and his crowd is not slow in showing its appreciation, which has led to some electric atmospheres in the famous old club. We dropped in for the final party of the year as The Magician was casting a groovy spell on a packed floor.

There’s something about the Ibiza closing party that elevates it above the rest, an edge born from the fact that it is the last chance you have to enjoy that particular party on that night for another year! There’s also the celebration that can be felt from all of the staff and team working on the party, those battle-hardened souls that have been doing their thing consistently for the best part of 5 months and finally they can see a well-earned rest coming. Either way, the vibe is bubbling just nicely as we land in one of the most famous mains rooms on the clubbing planet. Pacha celebrated its 50th anniversary this summer and how!

As big fans of The magician from his Aeroplane days and throughout his solo adventure to date, we were straight on the floor as he weaved a nu-disco/ house web that had captured the imagination of everyone. not the most animated of DJs, he prefers to let the music do the talking and boy was it talking! A quick reconnaissance mission to the Funky Room found a more intimate party in full flow, with Ibiza legend DJ Pippi and Willie Graff at the helm and Vaughan, Funky Room legend himself, cutting some shapes on the dancefloor! back in the main room, Martin Solveig has taken control of the booth for the last time, and has the crowd right where he wants it. His customary address of the large crowd offers a thank you for the fantastic support all summer as, once again, he takes the Pacha crowd on one last journey. For those still on the island, Pacha has extended a selection of its parties into next week, meaning there are still a few opportunities left to savour the 50th anniversary season.
