Music On – Ibiza
Music On, now on it’s fourth season in the island started the 2015 season with a bang. On its weekly schedule every Friday from the 5th of June until 25th of September Music On has become one of the top contenders for best techno night in the island. There are always so many parties on the island, but every Friday the only thing on everybody’s mind is Music On.
Italian DJ Marco Carola, who created the label with the same name as the party, gathers a massive Italian following, however, you can find an array of all techno-loving nationalities through the dance floor.
We started the Music On pre party in the streets of San Antonio, where a massive queue of people chanting “Music On! Music On!” waited for their taxis to go to Amnesia nightclub. I met up with my friend Lito who was absolutely buzzing for this party. His plane was booked for Barcelona at 7 the next morning, but that wasn’t going to stop him from going. We drank a whole litter J&B whiskey as we waited for some other friends to get off work, then we made our way to the club.
We arrived just before 3AM and Hector and Neverdogs were just finishing their set. First set that we caught was Joseph Capriati in the cavernous main room, the sound was blasting through the walls and you could feel the “Thump Thump Thump” all the way to the back of the line.
Once inside we found ourselves raving with the crowd for a couple hours just waiting for Marco Carola to take over the terrace. There is no easy way to explain techno unless you are a fan. I tried to shasam some of the tracks so that I could share and you could feel the energy, but there were so obscure that the application would not recognize any song. If I had to describe it in a way it’s like he somehow taps right into your heartbeat and slowly raises the energy of your body to a point where you loose yourself, close your eyes and just dance. It was sad to see my friend Lito take off to catch his plane at 6AM, we said our goodbyes and I returned to the podium that is right in the middle of the terrace.
I met a few people through the night, and it seems like at one point they all had joined me in the podium to dance and enjoy a night that was borderline magical. At 10 AM, when the terrace was full of light coming through the glass ceiling and the music had finished, chants of “Music On! Music On!” filled the terrace as Marco Carola bowed out and finished his set until next week where he will be accompanied by Richy Ahmed and Paco Osuna.
