Our lovely guests have selected a few songs to get you in the mood for the main event this Sunday. Take a minute, sit back, turn the speakers up to a comfortable 6 or 7 and picture yourself poolside at Pikes hotel.
Ruf Dug Selects –
“Sufferer Sound – I A Suffer – Dennis bovell on production, full poolside wonky dub here. Jump in.
Earl Klugh – Soft Stuff – Horizontal fusion. Backstroke grooving.
Michael Heart – Some Girls – Post sunset jam – this groove engineered specifically for outdoor moves.
Flash And The Pan – Midnight Man – Ruf Kutz’ latest fan Francois Kevorkian on the mix here. Future Chez Fez classic.”
Trouble Vision Select –
“Womack & Womack – MPB (Missin’ Persons Bureau)(Frankie Knuckles Paradise Ballroom Mix) – Something old. Similar in style to his Ain’t Nobody version, this just ticks all the right boxes for Sunday feels.
Donald Dust – Joy July – Something new. Bringing a little bit of Peckham to Pikes, this is the latest release on new South London label No Bad Days. Title track Joy July says it all really… If Sundays looked like an 80’s action film montage.
Barry White – Your Sweetness Is My Weakness – Something borrowed. Borrowed because we first heard Trouble vision resident OK Jones play this at a wedding. Barry. Do we need to say any more.
Talamanca System – My Past Is Your Future – Something blue. This isn’t actually melancholy at all. Quite the opposite actually. What a trio! Gerd Janson, Lauer and White Isle mainstay, Mark Barrott. This just screams poolside daytime vibes to us.”
Neil Diablo Selects –
Many thanks to our DJs for those selections. Come down to hear all these and many more fine songs being played at Pikes on Sunday 6th August from 1pm until 2am. You really won’t regret it!
Is it really August already?! The Summer seems to be flying by and it’s hard to believe we’re already up to week 14! Lots of love to our DJs from last week David Phillips, Jon Woodall, Riccio and Andrew Livesey who all played fantastic sets delivering 12 hours of simply beautiful music. This week we’ve got another standout lineup arranged with all three of our residents Ruf Dug and The Brothers Grim back in full force. They will be joined by long time friend of the family Neil Diablo who returns for his third consecutive season of Pikes On Sundays along with debutants Mr Solid Gold and Rolfie. With all the makings of a truly Balearic Sunday by the pool, we can’t wait to kick this month of with a bang.
Demand for the Sunday Roasts seems to be higher than ever at the moment with the restaurant looking set to be fully booked within the next few days. If you would like to reserve a table please act fast and give Pikes a call on 0034 971 34 22 22. Once they’re gone they’re gone! Thankfully for all of us in this hot weather the pool is always open with no reservations required and the ice cold cocktails are served from the get-go. For those with children in tow we have also extended the operating hours of the Kids Klub which is now open from 2pm until 8pm; as always this is free of charge to our Sunday visitors.
Keep your eyes on the blog over the next few days for musical treats coming from our residents and guests. In the mean time if you are looking for some soothing sonics then you can’t do much better than this exquisite mix from our Pikes On Sundays sensei Bernie Connors recorded live and direct from Pikes last month.
Gracias amigos and see you on Sunday!
After a cloudy start to the day failed to dampen our spirits, Sunday just gone turned into another great party. Each DJ brought their A game and the sun eventually made an appearance shining on a beautiful evening before giving way to a fairly raucous evening. Big thanks to Lottie, Mark Jones, Sebastian Spring and RooDog Billionaire for their musical meanderings!
This sunday we welcome more friends new and old to come down and soundtrack your sunday. First up Phat Phil Cooper. Phil has been part of our crew for as long as we can remember. From the early Cream days, through Home in London, Sydney and Ibiza and as a constant feature throughout We Love’s long history. His NuNorthern Soul podcast series is on constant repeat wherever we may be, without doubt Phil is one of our favourite ever DJs. He’s not a bad laugh either. One of many fantastic mixes from the main man here –
Next up we welcome a couple of Mancs to the party. Perhaps new names to our Ibiza crew, in the case of these two chaps we must let their respective pedigrees do the talking. Neil Diablo can currently be found residing at Es Cavalet’s La Escollera restaurant. If you’ve ever been here you’ll be familiar with the fantastic music on offer. In his Manchester base Neil heads up the fantastic El Diablo’s Social Club, a party that champions leftfield disco, Balearic beats and everything in between. A crowd loving crate-digger who never fails to set it off!
Quite coincidentally our final guest also calls Manchester home. We have spent a few years in Manchester and there are a few parties which have shone out over the years. Tramp was at the cutting edge of the electro third wave, Homo Electric provided some of the best parties we have ever been to and The Warehouse Project has earned its reputation as one of the country’s top events many times over. Will Tramp has been or is resident for all of these great parties. He really does know the score and we’re really excited to welcome him to Pikes On Sundays as part of his first ever trip to Ibiza! Here’s a few song selctions from Will to get you in the mood.
As always The Brothers Grim Mark and Andrew bring the noise early doors and at various stages throughout the day. Action from 2pm. Restaurant reservations on – 0034 971 34 22 22.
