The king of Sundays is back for another season at Pacha Ibiza. It’s no surprise that Solomun and his plus one concept is one of the longest standing parties on the island. He’s earned his crown and his reign looks unshakable. When you experience a Solomun +1 evening, you’ll be proclaiming his name in the streets. Here’s what happened at this season’s opening coronation.

DJ Koze was tonight’s guest for this 12-hour opening marathon. Trusted with opening duties, the Pick Up producer perfectly balanced the tempo and had us early Pacha patrons in the palm of his hands. Mixing soulful Pampa releases with cutting-edge electro bangers, the energy levels at the iconic Ibiza Town club kept rising. DJ Koze was in the driving seat and was moving through the gears effortlessly and flawlessly. &ME’s remix of Guy Gerber’s What To Do shortly followed by DJ Koze’s own Pick Up will hopefully give you some idea of the scenes that unfolded.

Now it was time the big man to enter. A presence as always in the central Pacha booth, you know when Solomun has arrived. With the evening entering its peak, the king of Sundays took to his throne, ruled the decks and proclaimed that this night would only involve bangers. Classic Solomun jewels like Patrick Chardronnet’s remix of Goldfish & Der Dulz’ Ding Dong and an instrumental version of Thousand Fingers’ Down were shined and put on show for us loyal subjects. Blending new summer releases with textbook Solomun sounds, the Diynamic label boss was powerfully charged. Pacha was electric.

After three hours of unrelenting techno, deep house, trance, electro and everything in-between, DJ Koze joined the King in the booth to go back-to-back for SIX MORE HOURS! It had echoes of last season’s marathon closing with Adriatique. It was like we never left and Solomun was a man possessed. As the sun came up it was – reluctantly – time to leave. With sore legs and a mild touch of tinnitus, there was an overwhelming feeling of content. The Ibiza season has arrived and Solomun is back where he belongs, doing what he does best.
