Its just over 4 weeks now until we fly out and with the Cream opening party kicking off tonight it seems apt that I post my second blog. All those jammy mofo’s are over there now, sun going down and all there night is going to entail now is 8 or 9 hours of deep tech trickery and massive trance monsters from PVD and co!! A night of lazers, hands in the air, walls of sound, ice blasts, hugging strangers, indoor sunnies and out and out Creamy goodness!! Jealous!!
So they all get to smash it to the sounds of John O’Callaghan and I write to you from my appartment in Manchester, I may not be there in person but I am certainly there in spirit (thank god my girlfriend loves techno too). Daily texts between the lads are flowing with excitement for when we go and we are counting down the days, holiday clothes are being bought and an untold amount of sit ups are being painstakingly ploughed through! The rituals have started, podcasts downloaded to keep up on the summer bangers, calenders checked and re-checked to make sure we hit the clubs we want and catch the tunes we need, the websites and rumour room scoured and verified to make sure we are with the cool and sexy, young and trendies! We WILL get the most out of our time!!
I really urge everyone who reads this blog and is making a pilgrimage this summer to do everything that is in your power to take one new person with you this year, I will personally buy a return flight for anyone who isnt 100% hooked after one night!
Itching for the summer season to kick off? So is Amnesia! they have just released a promo video for the 2011 season, Full of footage from past parties it just puts you in that mood to book the flights now!!!
Armin Van Burren will continue his world domination this year in one of my favourite nights in Ibiza which is Armada@Amnesia. Tuesdays will be shared again this year with Roger Sanchez who will be hosting the Terrace with his Release Yourself parties.
If your somebody that’s not really sure what nights you want to go to in Ibiza then this could be a great night to visit Amnesia. The main room is the perfect setting for trance, Cream is a very successful night but i think Armada is a better night, mainly down to the crowd that is in there for an Armada night. If you decide trance isn’t your thing then you could also say the new terrace is perfect for a Dj like Roger Sanchez, if you then decided you didnt like this as well, then id probably get the next flight home!!
Cream have announced their summer lineup for their Thursday nights in Amnesia and it looks good!
Familiar faces trough the summer include PVD, Ferry Corstan and Eric Prydz, Adam Sheridan has a few nights as well as some other really good dj’s.
The thing i am most looking forward to is the way they are using the terrace, PVD will be performing in the Terrace at the opening and closing party which will be really good and if you ask me it could be cream testing the water to maybe make the terrace the main room next year.
For as long as i have been going to Ibiza, Cream is one of the clubs that has been stable throughout, They haven’t moved, caused much controversy, they haven’t fallen out with the club owners that has been public and they have week in week out put in great nights people want to go to.
Over the years they have kept the sound of cream appealing, in 1999 i took a visit to cream in Ibiza and Pete Tong and Judge Jules were playing trance to a packed main room.
