weekends matter 46: Mike Vale (Space, Ibiza)

The white isle. It’s the stuff of dreams, a place where the magic happens each and every summer with a high octane blend of hedonism and thumping electronic grooves has been seducing dance music lovers for decades. Whether you lose yourself in the reach for the lasers hedonism of the trance at Cream, the slow and sexual grooves of DC10’s underground house or the multi-faceted sounds of We Love… Space, Ibiza has it all for anyone who loves music.

With this in mind we’ve dedicated our podcast not to any one individual event this time round, but instead just given you a flavour of the best parties and clubs on the island you can still nab tickets for before the season shuts up shop for another year in early October. We’ve also grabbed a recent mix from someone you will be hearing a lot of in the future to showcase a flavour of the sound on offer, with Mike Vale delivering a techno workout which was his recent live recording when he played Space recently – he returns on Monday 9th September.

So turn up the speakers and let the pounding Balearic beats soothe you as we offer you a slice of the world’s still undoubted party capital.

#45 - Autocycle (Freeze & Waxxx)

The summer’s slowly but surely coming to an end, but there’s always one last hurrah – the august Bank Holiday Weekend. There’s longer weekends but this is definitely the most important, simply because it’s the last time in a while you’re going to be given a legitimate three day weekend that, fingers crossed, should be sunny. You need to indulge yourselves.

We know this, so our Weekends Matter podcast is focused entirely this time round on arguably the best weekend of them all. We’ve picked out our top five events as per usual, and they circumnavigate the full spectrum of the dancefloor caveat.

There’s the thrusting sonics of Artist of the Week Steve Angello and his record label showcase Size in the Park, classic house from Todd Terry at the Hard Times 20th Birthday in Leeds, Musika collab with James Zabiela and his Born Electric promotion, mUmU’s Day & Night showcase in Liverpool and then last, but by no means least, Leeds’ final Faversham Garden Party of the year. It’s getting us all a little hot under the collar just thinking about them.

The mix though comes from our preferred choice this time round, Freeze in Liverpool. The clubnight has been one of the success stories of the year with their unconventional approach to venue choices for their parties, and even though they’re in a club this time round they’re doing a day and night party at Haus Warehouse in the city, with a music policy that reflects the lighter side of house and disco in the day before cranking up the energy once the sun sets.

We picked elusive disco duo Autocycle to drop the mix, their funk laced take on house and disco perfectly representative of the daytime grooves that go hand in hand with the event. We spoke to them earlier in the year which you can check here, but other than that just enjoy the mix.
