Rolling the mat out for the global trance family, Paul van Dyk opened up Ibiza’s new hub for celebrating the iconic genre in its purest form. Dedicated to bringing through the original sounds that have shaped Ibiza, a new space has been made for taking in some of the finest names in the scene. Taking over the most intimate space of warehouse superclub, Privilege, SHINE is bringing back the euphoric beats to Vista Club every Monday night. The opening delivered a hefty punch featuring Paul Vvan Dyk himself alongside Will Atkinson, Ben Nicky and Alex Ryan all uniting the tribe.

These days on the White Isle a night devoted purely to trance is a rarity hard to come by, so we were looking forward to how things would fare as we pulled up to the venue. The throbbing basslines were booming through the walls as we arrived into the glass-lined Vista Club, the room fully oscillating to the sounds of Ben Nicky. Smoke machines had clouded the dancefloor, setting our gaze firmly on the pulsing neon visuals hovering above the booth. The air was thick with energy as Nicky served out classics such as ‘Castles In The Sky’ and ‘Man With The Red Face’ mixed in with sirens and pumping beats.

There was a distinct togetherness about the evening, as people on the dancefloor had their arms round each other, encouraging one another to raise their hands higher. By the central bar a glitter station was on hand painting and sparkling up the crowd for the evening, fitting for all the lasers bouncing off at all angles. Paul van Dyk’s entrance was slick and brought in a more melodic journey, dishing soft, haunting vocals over bouncing, driving basslines. Playing classic anthems and new nuggets, the crowd at this point was fully in its element, pumping to the high-octane sweeping rhythms. Paul Van Dyk was every part the showman as he jumped about behind the decks, orchestrating the crowd into a frenzy. The club, with its palm tree interior and industrial vibe, was the perfect match for the heavy-hitting, pulsing, beats of SHINE. Whilst peak summer duties called, meaning we had to miss the epic sunrise through the glass walls, we are sure it made for one hell of a scene. For a night of pure energy led by the legend that is Paul van Dyk each week, this is one to clock in for.
