Thanks, getting very excited now. Never seen them live and Mars Audiac Quintet is still one of my favourite albums from the 90s.

Choose life... Choose a job... CHOOSE LOVE!
After an amazing pop up last summer, we couldn't help but invite our good friends; Help Refugees, Mixmag & Print Club to Pikes Ibiza again this summer to bring you a monthly series of Choose Love events. Every evening is curated with love, in aid of the Charity Help Refugees, with a community of artists, DJs and chefs.
We kicked off the summer series on 24th May with an intimate set by DJ Seinfeld, Imad's Syrian Kitchen taking over Room 39 and an exclusive art exhibition around our gardens.
SEE ALL DATES


A Syrian inspired dinner club by Imad's Syrian Kitchen
Experience the true taste of Syria as Help Refugees' friend and supporter Imad Alarnab cooks up a famous Syrian feast including the best falafels we've ever tasted (biased but true!).
We caught up with Imad last summer to find out more about his dinner club.

Glitterbogs vs Shitterbox...
There are few taboo subjects left in the world – the ambiguous relationship between political correctness and social media has put pay to that. But one taboo that resolutely remains – like a floater that you just can’t flush – is what goes on in the bathroom...

Would love some advice:

Thinking of pikes on Sunday 23/6, but have never heard of Ruff Kutz and can't find anything on SoundCloud. My friend and I like our music fast (last time I was at Pikes I saw smokin jo & skin - it just got harder and faster as the night progressed! Didn't care that my mascara was running down my face from the amount of sweat! Was one of my best nights). It's her 2nd time, mine, I've lost count. We only have 5 days, we're 40 year old(ish) moms (read: pretty bloody tired already! 😝) so won't be able to go ape shit, but when we dance, we like to move! Want to try and experience as much as we can. But, music tempo / Rythym is quite big thing for us. We're keen on anything (except edm/urban) as long as it is interesting and keeps us moving (not just swaying). Thanks in advance you wonderful sources of wisdom.....x

Have you considered doing Wax Da Jam at Pikes on Monday 24/6 and choosing something else on Sunday? (Zoo, Woomoon)

Ruf Kutz aka Ruf Dug aka Glowing Palms.

I'm a fan but it probably won't be your thing if you're after uptempo - their groove is more based on 80s electrofunk, disco, early house

Thanks KW! For the link also. I'll check it out later, but No.....that doesn't sound like my thing. Unless I'm sitting down with a cocktail. Really don't like how slow early house is....I only discovered "house" in 2001, a year after I moved to the UK. And it was Hard House at the Fridge or Camden Palace....then got into funky and "proper" tech house (so upbeat/fast as opposed to the monotonous slow severely lacking progression or melody tech house now) in 2003 when I first visited ibiza. As I say, I like anything that is fat (base) and fast (I'll go for fairly fast since there is not a lot of fast hard stuff now! 😪), or fat and constant grooving / driving Rythym.

Yes I have....have been to woomoon, enjoyed it as found it deep (fat base) uplifting and progressive/ fairly groovy. Quite like ethno house in small doses. It certainly wasn't fast. Still enjoyed it. Went to zoo years ago and it was odd. No vibe. I think I got there too early. But will be trying it out this time (plan was to go before Pikes anyway). Monday is a dilemma because I may enjoy wax da jam (although if memory serves me, Nightmares in wax used to play original funk, soul kind of sound, so again too slow, unless they pick up the pace with an all night set). Wanted to check out cocoon (new sound system on the terrace - I'm massively into sound quality too), but as I mentioned in the cocoon post, concerned it will be more tech than techno. White-Isle reckons it could be ok with the B2B2B though.
