Carl Cox will play vinyl for the first time in 10 years at his last Space party
Carl Cox’s 15 year residency at Space Ibiza is rapidly coming to an end. He’ll finish up his party at the iconic superclub on September 20, and to mark the historic occasion he has committed to spinning wax for the first time in 10 years.
“I wanted to take things back and pay homage to all those years at Space spinning records,” he said. “I want to show respect to those older tunes, dig out some of my old vinyl and play them alongside new tunes. A lot of the crowd probably won’t have even heard them before, so it’s a way of showing the music is still relevant.”
Carl announced his departure from the legendary venue last year, telling inthemix: “Me and Space have been like a married couple and we haven’t even really had that many arguments, it’s just been fantastic. There’s going to be a lot of tears ending it. This is it. This is where it actually finally does end.” He recently spoke further about Space and the future of the White Isle, telling UK’s Ticketmaster Blog that “Ibiza has turned into the new Vegas of Spain.”
Cox hasn’t spun vinyl since 2006 – so his last show is guaranteed to be a heady mix of techno and house classics. “This music has been my life and I want to share it one last time at Space.”
Space Ibiza will officially close on October 2 with one last epic party. The owners of fellow Ibiza club Ushuaïa are set to take over the site from 2017.
