Solomun +1 2019

A few comments from Sunday 01/09. It was a good night, not best I’ve ever had at +1 though. I caught the last hour and a bit of Horvat’s set. I personally liked it a lot, but it kind of didn’t work for the time slot and the crowd. The +1 back in the day (OK before 2018) used to get to play to 0330 before Solomun came on. I think Solomun now coming on at 0230 means the +1 just doesn’t get enough time. Just my view for what it’s worth. This is a product of Solomun now being insanely popular I suppose.

We caught the last hour of Horvat’s set. He ended with a beautiful track just released on Afterlife Records. I had to Shazam as not heard before. “Resolve” by Colyn.


Overall, I think the crowd just didn’t get it and I think he kind of shrugged at that point.

Fundamentally this is a tourist crowd and most looked like they were waiting for a bus for Solomun to come on. I doubt 75%+ of them had any idea who Denis Horvat was to be honest.

And here lies a problem with this night right now.

Solomun came on at 0230 and absolute carnage. It was busier than the previous week I was there. He played well, a good solid Solomun set.

I make no secret how much I like him, I was at this night in June 2013 when the club was probably a 1/4 full, and I get it’s now a roadblock in an expanded club.

He can still get this place rocking to the foundations, and it shows the new Pacha off to the max. And the lighting guy is a master.

However, I’m just a bit bored to be honest. And I have a slight fear that Solomun might be too.

He played “Along Came Polly” by Rebuke at about 4am. As it happens his sister played it towards the end of her set on Friday. Should he really be playing this at 4am at his landmark night? I’ve personally never got this tune. It’s the kind of tune Andrea Olivia would drop to try and seem cool! But each to their own, and the crowd love it.

Horvat B2B with Solomun from 0500 was more like it, quite dark at times which I loved. This night is basically tremendous from 4-7am+ when the spectators that think they have to be at a Solomun night start to thin out.

And I know you’ll all be interested, but the song in the taxi ride back..... was “Maneater” (Daryl Hall Etc). You couldn’t make this shit up...

I suspect you are onto something here.... my theory for the early start of Solomun 0230 and early finish 0715 compared to previous is that Pacha want people in the club spending money earlier and not overstaying there welcome not drinking at 0745-0800 etc.

Same can be said for many ... standard. Just a shame parties don't go on late enough to do 'em as a day-starter any more !

Sometimes feels like the internet equivalent of running the gauntlet down the west end (when used to be loads of street reps) lol

Just have to have rules about frequency of bumping, no duplicate posts etc. and kick people for violations. It soon settles down - or else dies if that's all that's going on :lol:

Maneater is a favourite of mine, also great for karaoke. Love Hall and Oates too, got right into then back when I had a 12” remix of “out of touch” by porno joe.

I was there last night and was blown away by Solomuns set, totally my thing and up there with the best I’ve heard in all my ibiza years.
B2B with Dixon was also ace.

Really enjoyed it apart from the amount of letches perving over my wife, she must have gone as far as telling 10 guys she was married and with her husband pointing to me. Some of them still wouldn’t leave it!! Sad state of affairs when rather than confrontation we prefer to move our spot.

This seems to be becoming a thing this season.

Starting to have second thoughts about Cocoon.
