Feverishly in demand and frontman of the future, clubbing is fast ascending new heights with Eric Prydz at the helm. Bringing his hotly anticipated party back to Hï Ibiza for season two, the opening night was nothing short of a gawker. With chart-topper Camelphat and master duo Solardo in tow, the dazzling production that Hï Ibiza so spectacularly delivers was an unrivalled match for these superstar DJs. Throwing a truly one-of-a-kind show, it’s looking like Tuesday nights is the place to be for taking in all the defining anthems from Eric Prydz and co.

Walking through the slick, futuristic interiors of Hï Ibiza, the air was rife with energy coming from the crowd, the thumping basslines calling us through to The Theatre first. Global chart topping duo Camelphat was in the booth at this point, dropping high-octane electro layered over stammering vocals. The vibe was electric and popping as hypnotising red lights encapsulated the entire floor. In a ridiculously epic moment, the tune of everyone’s summer 2017, ‘Cola’, was dropped sending the crowd into chaotic uproar – goosebumps all over our necks.

Meanwhile in The Club, Solardo was throwing down a more festival-flavour set, serving tribal beats and rolling rhythms, a slight octane down from The Theatre but still keeping the packed-out floor locked in entranced dancing. The wobbling basslines and cutting-edge sounds were simply perfect in the futurist settings of Hï Ibiza, and we were fully caught up in this bouncing wormhole.

Clocking that it was almost time for Mr Prydz to make his appearance we swiftly moved into the now roadblocked Theatre. Smoke filled the air, multiple lasers pierced the floor, and the room was ready to rock as a single oscillating bassline boomed across the room. Setting our pulses racing Eric arrived with a sonic boom sending the heated crowd in uproar. As the dancefloor transformed into a 360 visual shapeshifting oasis, we were stunned as incredible kaleidoscopic patterns throbbed in rhythm to the music all around us. Eric Prydz on the decks is truly a category in itself, taking us on a melodic, jumping, journey, our favourite moment was hearing ‘Pjanoo’ come in after a slow build up. Confetti, hands in the air and euphoria galore. No one does it quite like this Swede.
