    He played the last ever closing though?

    And I’m sure he is well aware this club will never achieve what space did nor will it ever be as good.

    But since Space is now gone why would he go around saying Hi is s***? As the saying goes don’t bite the hand that feeds you! He probably just wants the residency again next year so wants to keep the people up top happy.

    I wasn't aware that he did mate but it's a long time since he was a regular at Space.

    Exactly, nostalgia doesn't pay the bills unfortunately.

    I was really surprised to read that Shite from Steve Lawler, all the other hi DJs were obviously still positive about hi but at least admitted it was a big change and a tough start after space.

    Ilario Alicantes comments were spot on and if only more big DJs spoke out like this we might get a (small) change

    Lol I know that, but all other hi DJs were much more subtle with there comments. But does Lawler genuinely believe hi is better than space in its first season.
  6. Where did you Ilario Alicantes and other Djs comments?

    Its good to see other djs step up and says things are getting way pricey and it needs a change. Paco Osuna, Leon, Ilario. Hats off to you.

    I agree about water being free but also understand clubs have to import X amount in. €2 would be cheap enough.

    unfortunately, you'll rarely get a fully honest response from people who work in the industry - unless they're anonymous.

    Wasn't Steve Lawler referring to Space in the last 5 years though, which to be honest was nothing like it was in the lates 90s early 2000's..

  13. That maybe true but Space over the last few years was still a much better club than Hi. Really don't see the reason why Lawler would mention Space, he must know this statement would p**s people off. the guys out of touch with clubbers. This VIP thing must have gone to his head after leaving sankeys.

    Bizarre really, given that he is hardly a VIP DJ.
    If Gerber had said it...

    Joris Voorn played a guest mix on Pete Tong's Essential Selection a few weeks a go.
    He briefly mentioned what he was up to in ibiza and said about his residency at Hi which he didn't say anything about. Then he said he played at Ants at Ushuaia a few nights which he DID say had some really good parties.

    Maybe i read too much into it but it appeared he purposely didnt want to say much about Hi. Sometimes silence says everything

    First summer without space and was very strange for me , didn't even put a step in pdb because of that ! Something was missing big time on the island this summer !Couldn t even think about going to Hi by knowing that I would be sad and couldn't enjoy it by seeing how they transformed one of my fav club of all the time

    Rest In Peace Space ✌

    I agree with dunmores comments that clubs full of olders and VIPs lack spark.
