This sunday we’re taking a week off and setting our sights on our Winter Opening Party on Sunday 8th October. Ibiza is a funny place when it comes to the seasons as there appears to be only two. And so with Autumn swiftly sidestepped we are happy to announce we will continue our Sunday activities all the way up until the end of October. With the nights drawing in and the tourists leaving the happy locals to it, we will now kick things off at midday and run through until midnight each week. 12 hours of poolside fun!
To start the new season off with a bang we are very happy to welcome the one and only Paul Woolford who makes his Pikes On Sundays debut. We will admit that sometimes on the blog we throw around a few too many hyperboles, such is the nature of the beast, however when it comes to Paul Woolford these words are most certainly justified. There are few DJs that we hold in as high esteem as Paul, as made apparent in his long serving role as resident for We Love… Space. In our eyes he was the undisputed champion of the Terrace for many years and with a few shifts of pace later down the line he cemented his position as a master of the Discoteca too. As a producer he has made music at the cutting edge of electonica spanning house, techno, minimal and all things in-between and under his Special Request moniker he has released some of our favourite dance music of the last 10 years. He is listed by many of our DJ friends as their favourite DJ and we can certainly see where they are coming from. Also, and perhaps more importantly, he’s a really nice chap and we can’t wait to hang out with him by the pool!
Also supplying the sounds we are very happy to welcome back Jim Breese of Balearic Recs fame who plays Pikes On Sundays for the second year running. Jim has invited along Chema Malibu to join the fun. Chema has been a resident DJ on Salinas beach for over 25 years so he certainly knows a thing or two about a balearic song selcetion. Let’s see how he copes with the tranisition from seaside to poolside! Our final guest of the day is our old friend Dirty Pop, one of the best Welshmen we have ever met. Our trusty residents The Brothers Grim complete the lineup with their usual dose of humour, whit, positivity and sublime sunday sounds.
Our Sunday Roasts are looking even more appealing now the temperature has calmed down a bit. We are close to selling out tables for this already so if you feel like joining us for a yorkshire pudding give Pikes a call on 0034 971 34 22 22 and reserve a your spot!
That’s just about it really. Apart from one more little thing. HALLOWEEN IS COMING! More info soon.
Can you believe it? A whole 10 Sundays into the summer already! We’re having such a blast at Pikes On Sundays that time is simply flying by and our opening party seems like a distant memory. Thanks very much to all the guests that have joined us so far and especially to Phat Phil Cooper and DJ Dea who provided a masterclass last week. This Sunday we are very happy to welcome Jim Breese for some poolside action. We’ve been huge fans of Jim and his Balearic label for a long time and so we are super stoked to see what he makes of our little fiesta. Jim joins us a part of his Balearic 2 launch tour, the fantastic compilation drops today and is well worth a look. Go check it! We’ve also got an extended B2B set from Jon Woodall and Andrew Livesey to look forward to. Rumour has it the two have had some artistic differences recently but here at Pikes On Sundays we are all about unity so we’ve asked them to put their beef to one-side and see if they can’t work it out over a couple of Yorkshire puddings. Here’s hoping they can, but either way we’re sure the music will be simply outstanding.
Some musical selections to get you in the mood –
Jim Breese Selects –
“Wally Badarou – Novela Das Nove – Favourite record of all time for sure. Wally Badarou is the don, his tracks trigger something in me, with this it’s a tropical groove with an underlying rudeness.
Francois K – Hypnodelic – Arguably the best deep house tune ever made. Reminiscent of pulling the late shift at Cafe Mambo, close up the windows & crank it.
Hysteric – Belly Dance Disco – I haven’t found the right place yet to play this tune, so whether its right or wrong, its getting played Sunday! Get the bellies out.
Sonic Friends Of The Galaxy – Adamo & Eva (Leo Mas & Fabrice and DJ Rocca Paradiso Mix) – Track of Ibiza 2016. Pure euphoric House with the Balearic baton getting passed on for a new generation of dancers. “
Andrew Livesey Selects –
“All four tracks come from my set last week and kind of give an idea of the progression of the set. All nice sunny records and the Regg’Lyss cut is one of my all-time favourites. Loads going on in the record and some nice strange bits in there too.”
Jon Woodall Selects –
“Some of my favourite Sunday records. I like to play the Jill Scott one pitched up really high. I just hope these songs are good enough to end the troubles between me and Andy.”
Thanks very much to our 3 selectors, some beautiful moments in there. More of the same on Sunday please! As always we are a free party open to one and all. Roast reservations are highly recommended as they tend to sell out in advance, call pikes on 0034 971 34 22 22 to get booked in. See you sunday!
