Haha. Yeah I grabbed a pen from the bar there and tried asking him on an El Row flyer what track he was playing, but I don't think he knew what I was trying to do when I held up what I wrote to him. He was like kinda motioning me to get down from the booth LOL. I was actually quite bummed for a couple of months after my trip, not only because I was missing Ibiza, but also because I didn't know what the track was. I stopped DJ'ing for a while as well because of it, even though I knew by hearing it again it wouldn't sound as good. I still believed it to be a new track and as soon as I got back home I was trying to search for it on all these DJs' playlists,but still had no luck finding it. I STILL DON'T KNOW what the track was, but it was very easily the best track I heard in Ibiza as it was symbolic of an Ibiza clubbing moment that you hear about, especially when I heard it at Cocoon in that environment for the first timeyes, very honest and well written review
"and wrote down on a flyer, asking him what it was when I went up to the DJ booth. I couldn't use my phone becuase the batteries were dead."
had me thinking, how did we ever cope in the early 90s??
Tbh nobby, I wasn't feeling it in Elrow that night. Had a busy day out and about with another spotlighter kimajy and was also driving so I wasn't that much fun. As kimajy quite rightly put in later on outside, it wasn't a true Elrow crowd in there.July 23rd - Es Canar
Alright so I musta gotten like 3 hours of sleep max. My check out was at Noon I think. My stomach was feeling like garbage from all the alcohol the day before. The Cafe Del Mar shirt I got was a bit small, so I wanted to exchange it for a larger one and get some breakfast as well in the morning before I left
They exchanged the shirt no questions asked, they didn't even look at my receipt. That whole area looks so nice in the bright day but my condition wasn't allowing me to enjoy it fully. I somehow made it to Rita's. I was sorta planning on getting a nice big breakfast meal but could only handle a smoothie because of my stomach.
After I struggled with the smoothie, i went back to my hotel to pick up my luggage from the luggage room. I was gonna take a bus to Santa Eululia and then from there I had to take another bus to my hotel which was located conveniently next to the bus station by Es Canar beach.
My first impressions of the hotel was that it was HUGE. Really big lobby and it looked way more modern than Marco Polo. I immediately noticed more families and younger kids in this place. They actually had actual keycards for entry to your room, which was like a miracle to see. The room itself was huge. I had two single beds pushed together, but I also had a large couch where it was possible for a third person to sleep in. My balcony was small, but the size of the room and big bathroom made up for it. Like this hotel was like a resort-hotel...i was paying 90 Euros a night, thought it was worth it. It came with breakfast buffet as well. I wanted to explore around the area but I really didn't as I was so beat. So I slept.
I got up I think around 8 PM or so. It was too late for Ants...I was thinking of doing a big final hurrah and going to Ants and then El Row with @diver . i was more interested in El Row,where Dusky, Marco Faraone, Andrea Oliva were playing the main room, and Eats Everything all night in the terrace, so I wasn't that concerned with missing Ants. Here's the view of Es Canar at sundown, thought you guys might be interested since it's different from PDB/San Antonio. It felt like I was in a different island resort:

I wanted to get something to eat, settled on this nice looking Italian resto that had a terrace called Al Dente. Barely anyone there, thought it was relaxing. I ordered a seafood pasta thing, with the usual beer and water:

The food was very excellent tasting but portion size was small. But damn it tasted good with that beer. I ordered another item after since i was still hungry. I got bruschetta:

sorry about the pic not being too clear. This was also excellent tasting, and I finally felt filled up. This resto and area of Ibiza was such a change of pace from the business of San Antonio. The people being older, and families also added to how much more laidback it was. It was nice, but I did sorta miss the younger crowd of San Antonio, but I was only staying here for two days before going home. Unfortunately the laidback feeling of the whole area extended to the service, because it was really slow, considering how there was like basically no one there, but I'm gonna attribute to them putting extra care into the food.
I strangely started feeling tired again after my meal. I attributed it to itis. I decided to get some shuteye at my hotel before heading down, it was around 10:30 or so...
I got up again at around midnight or so, but I was still feeling tired and a bit sick...decided to sleep again for a couple of more hours.
I could not get up...I missed this damn event!! It was apparently the first sold out El Row of the season too! Dusky are some of my fave artists and really wanted to see Eats throw down a 6 hour set which became a B2B2B with him, Marco Faraone, and Andrea Oliva at the end! arrrgh. And who could miss Diver, the main attraction?? Damn this suckeddd.
LOL, I was like "yo man these girls are asking you to play and you aren't?" He was just laughing and shaking his head. I thought it was totally awesome how I got to talk to him properly and thought it was a perfect cap to my trip since Sasha and Ibiza go hand in hand.Its a great review nobbie q , and some cool photos. sasha always has time for a chat witch is cool. If it was 20yrs ago those Argentinean girls would have been whisked away to casa sasha picking up tong en route.
How am i dirty!
Haha. Was just joking about your prowess with the ladies, impressive for a soloist!How am i dirty!
Yeah going July 6-21st (have mercy on me) and no i wasn't able to find it! The synths i liked it in sorta sounded like the beginning of Sort it out Sharon by Dusky. It must be an older track.
