At first sight, the announcement that Together would be welcoming guests Defected In The House to the Terrace every Tuesday for 2015 might have raised a few eyebrows. On the one hand, an extremely successful night that attracts a young audience with the fierce sounds of bass and electro and on the other hand, a well-established party brand and label that has been defining house music for over 15 years and caters for the tastes of all ages. Could two diverse parties share the same Tuesday night in Amnesia, occupying one dancefloor each? However, it should never be forgotten that it was Amnesia where the infamous Balearic style was born, which presupposes mixing together the most diverse elements as long as they complement each other in a harmonious way. The symbiosis of Together and Defected turned out to be exactly that, both in terms of music and vibes. We visited the party on July 14, when it was in its sixth week, and can assure that it was a blast.

The club got full, yet not too packed – just the ideal proportion to feel the drive of a big crowd and still be comfortable. In August, predictably, things will get even busier. The Main room belonged to Together and was warmed up by Pukka Up DJs in the very beginning of the night, then followed by Pendulum, Chase & Status, Andy C and Toyboy & Robin. The name ‘Together’ indeed suits this night the best: what you felt on the dancefloor is a massive sense of unity and inspiration. With lasers cutting the darkness into pieces and live vocals accompanying the outbursts of a powerful bass, that was a highly energising experience – one of those events which you leave more refreshed than you arrived.

At the same time, the Terrace hosted by Defected In The House was going on full steam. We’ve seen this party on many smaller dancefloors, but it was probably the first time that we witnessed Defected in Ibiza on such a grand scale. DJ S.K.T., Todd Terry, Sonny Fodera, Hannah Wants and Waze & Odyssey offered a groovier alternative to what was happening in the Main room: while the Main was jumping, the Terrace was dancing. Although it would be a mistake to say that the Terrace was more relaxed – no, it was just as driving, but in a different way: it was such a treat to migrate from one dancefloor to another, enjoying the best of both environments!

Looking further into the season, there will be quite a lot of highlights for both parts of the event. On July 21 Defected will be partying in association with All Gone Pete Tong with the help of Hot Since 82, andhim, Disciples and of course Pete Tong himself. On September 15 another exciting collaboration will take place: this time with Get Physical, with Groove Armada, M.A.N.D.Y, DJ T, The Juan MacLean, Eddie Flashing Fowlkes, Simon Dunmore and Luke Solomon behind the decks. As for Together, they will have high-octane performances by Nero, Pendulum, Example & DJ Wire, Chase & Status, Sub Focus and other amazing artists, as well as the one and only seasonal appearance of Skrillex on September 1. The epic closing of Tuesdays in Amnesia is scheduled for September 22 – so good to realise there are still more than two months ahead!
