We Love… is preparing for it’s closing party over in Ibiza and it has truly been a September of epic proportions. This month has been filled with some of the finest DJ’s on the planet with the likes of Simian Mobile Disco live, Modeselektor, Shackleton, Four Tet vs Caribou and Dirtybird Showcase pleasing the appreciative crowds of dedicated clubbers.
In a style that only they can provide, We Love…have held their tune all season with a gradual escalation to this immensely exciting closing fiesta.
30th September is shaping up to be a very special date and we are getting pretty excited here at Young Academic HQ. The infamous We Love… closing party has become the gateway of new sounds to Ibiza over the last few years. Not least due to their bringing of the alpha male of electronica Aphex Twin, but also this year Modeselektor, Shackleton and Mambotur have stepped up to the stage with aplomb.
As any fans of this act will know only too well, the wildly diverse, infused with exuberance and inspired by a slap of the absurd, Modeselektor’s undoubted grooves seem to emanate from every conceivable musical genre. The DJ has created a controlled chaos whose sonic expression elevates the eyebrows and heartbeats of critics and dance floors around the world.
Associated with dancehall, techno, hip-hop and rap, they’ve completely reinvented each sound according to their own field-leading standards and blasting it out in an audio, visual and sensory overload in their live shows.
With a combination of intricate, snaking percussion, hypnotic melodies, seriously deep bass lines and dubwise sensibilities, Shackleton has become one of the scene’s most highly-rated producers. With a sound that bore little resemblance to anything else around, he quickly formed an evangelical fanbase stretching outside the restrictions of the club scene and into the wider world. His acclaimed live show is renowned for its head-spinning, mind-expanding brilliance. Mambotur is the live Latin project from Pier Bucci along with a vocalist and percussionist from Argentina who play alongside him. The performance is destined to deliver a fusion of electronic sounds and Latin American music, which aurally demonstrates the trajectory and evolution of this South American duo in the last decade.
All good things need to come to an end, but why not finish the season in style and grab your tickets before it’s too late!
