The living legend and king of the afterparty Solomun is reigning over Ibiza nightlife with his Solomun+1 residency at Pacha Ibiza this Summer. Each week he hosts next level +1’s complementing his deep and dark base-driven sets. I was lucky enough to check it out on June 5, when Jamie XX was scheduled as the +1. The bad news is Jamie XX had to cancel, the good news is that we got even more time with Solomun as he played all the way through.
Pacha is an establishment in its own right for a reason. It provides amazing services, it’s well organized and has fantastic production, giving space for everyone and everything you could desire. The lighting, particularly on the ceiling, will blow your mind. From digital hexagon screens ready to teleport you out of this world to a barrage of lasers, it was the perfect complement to Solomun’s endless party vibe.
What more can be said about Solomun that hasn’t already been said? As always he delivered a transcendent musical odyssey spread out over the night and into the wee hours of the morning. It’s the quintessential Ibiza experience; An experience everyone should have at least once in their lives.
