We Love Some Whisker Fuelled Fun

We Love is that kind of party where you come not only for the sake of listening to the headliner. On the contrary, the main attraction of Sundays at Space has always been its musical diversity: five dancefloors of different sounds and vibes gained this event the laurels of a mini-festival within a club. However, its carefully curated programming doesn’t fully share the festival logic – having its weekly and monthly residents, it puts the focus on unobtrusive repetitiveness, thus giving all waves of holidaymakers a chance to join the big We Love experience.

On August 3 Discoteca hosted the Skreamizm party with a live performance by Dense & Pika and DJ sets from Ame, Jasper James and, naturally, Skream. The Terrace was manned by Joris Voorn, DJ W!ld and Technasia, which was a safe bet and a winning combination. The Sunset Terrace traditionally kept its line-ups secret for the Stripped event from 16.30 till midnight, and then it was J*Star and Mr. Doris who played there for After Dark. The Premiere Etage was a family affair with Alfredo and Jaime Fiorito playing all night long, while El Salon welcomed the popular Mustachio party with Joe Mills, Andy Baxter, Giuliano A.L and Dicky Trisco. Being staunch We Love devotees for years, this time we were mainly interested in the smaller dancefloors – the massive experience of raving to Joris Voorn at Space terrace is a must-do for every Ibiza visitor, but since we had witnessed, admired and reviewed the event so many times already, we preferred to explore that side of We Love which makes is so unique and incomparable. Becauses, the devil is in the detail, as you know.

Stripped in the afternoon was cool and cozy. Created with the aim of reviving the good old school daytime party vibes, this event didn’t thankfully grow into a huge gathering – in spite of the fact that chances were high, judging by how packed it was on its opening. What we love the most about Stripped is its no-sensationalism attitude and the commitment to keeping it real. Sipping drinks to the sounds of Jason Bye’s set, we felt very much at home and didn’t notice how time fled, recalling the great Ibiza memories from days gone by. Later in the night (or was it morning already?), when we checked on the Sunset Terrace, we saw guys jumping and stomping to a piece of drum’n’bass, whose wild drive was muffled a bit by the necessity to keep the volume low on an open-air dancefloor. The other room that had to keep its volume at a very low level in order not to disturb the neighbours, the passers-by and probably also the birds and the planes, was Premiere Etage. It normally serves as a lounge for those who would like to have a rest and breathe some fresh air, and we spent quite a while there, chilling and chatting.

El Salon, however, was fun at its purest. With watering pots and washing hung to dry on a rope, it had the atmosphere of a good old fashioned house party, or maybe a garden party – something very private and utterly friendly. Along with Premiere Etage, it championed the Balearic approach to music: unlike seamless sets on the bigger dancefloors, here they didn’t aim at making people dance till they drop, but rather at enjoying themselves to the most. And luckily, the soundsystem in El Salon has its right to be tuned up to its full capacity, so we couldn’t complain either about the volume or the frequencies. The name Mustachio was given to the party not by chance: the guests were sporting luxurious black moustache, as well as colourful wigs and the best mood ever. Mustachio has been one of the more popular smaller gatherings on the island, hosting numerous events at unique venues across the island. It has a loyal and clearly fun loving following, add the influx of tourists, who needed no persuasion to get involved in the crazy antics, and you have the recipe for a night of the utmost fun! A meeting place for Ibiza connoisseurs and locals it was, almost like a club inside a club. Walking out of Space in the early Monday hours, we were already plotting our quick comeback. Keep your eyes peeled for more news on Mustachio and its return to We Love this summer…
