From the We Love newsletter:
As the smell of fresh paint lingers in the air here at a newly renovated We Love... HQ, it seems the fumes may have gone to our heads as we've decided to finally let you in on some news that we've been keeping close to our chests recently. Without any further ado, we'd like to introduce you to some of the regular guests we'll be hosting at our weekly festival here at Space on Sundays in Ibiza in 2010...
Kicking off with techno mastermind Carl Craig who'll be gracing us with his humble and serene presence at the opening party on June 13th, then returning for a special one-off performance with ‘Mad' Mike Banks (he of Underground Resistance, making his exclusive Ibiza debut) on July 18th, and rounding it off with a final appearance on August 22nd.
Simian Mobile Disco return to the We Love... fore with a four-date residency encompassing July 4th, August 8th, September 5th and 19th. In keeping with the so-nerdy-its-cool vibe, we'll also be inviting Felix and Al of Hot Chip to join us, on June 13th, July 11th and September 5th.
Then the original Dirty Bird himself, Claude VonStroke returns for a three-date residency - having absolutely rocked the room on all of his previous gigs for We Love... we're looking forward to seeing what he unleashes this summer. Catch him on July 18th, August 8th and September 19th.
Meanwhile, out on our famous Sunset Terrace, there's a new resident in town, as Funkagenda joins us for six dates - June 13th, July 11th and 25th, August 15th, September 12th and 26th. And last, but never least, We Love... stalwart and Discoteca favourite James Zabiela is back once again with seven dates to keep you satisfied over the course of the summer, June 13th, July 18th, August 1st and 15th, September 19th and 26th.
Got all that? Good. Stay tuned for more news, as and when it comes to hand!
Ibiza summer staple We Love... Space have announced their plans for 2010, with Joris Voorn, Simian Mobile Disco, Claude VonStroke and Funkagenda all named as new resident DJs.
Overall, the season presents a healthy mix of new and familiar faces. Steve Lawler, Paul Woolford and James Zabiela will continue their residencies, and regulars like Carl Craig and Groove Armada will stay in the fold as well, with the latter delivering a "black light live spectacular" on August 15th. This summer's We Love... debuts include Prins Thomas, Matthew Dear, and Mad Mike Banks of Underground Resistance, who will play live keys alongside C2. Perhaps most intriguingly, however, this summer will feature a DJ/VJ set by elusive IDM god Aphex Twin.
Other guests of note include Four Tet, Wolf + Lamb, Juan Maclean and Motor City Drum Ensemble, as well as Detroit icons Jeff Mills and Derrick May. Appleblim will return after making his Space debut in 2009, flanked by a crew of artists from his Apple Pips label.
The season officially kicks off on June 13th, with sets by Martin Buttrich and Hot Chip's Felix and Al among others, and closes 15 parties later on September 26th. And as for RA's annual shindig at the club, We Love... Resident Advisor is scheduled for August 22nd.
