Proceedings are at last ready to get underway on the White Isle with Pacha set to launch its first parties next week. The clubbing landscape has changed again this year, possibly more so than many of those previously. It’s all new for Pacha as next week it opens its doors for head honchos Solomun, Guy Gerber, John Digweed and Fritz Kalkbrenner as they kick off their respective club nights.
First up is Wisdom of the Glove on Wednesday May 22 with the man behind it all Guy Gerber plus French funsters dOP, Visionquest member Shaun Reeves, close Wolf & lamb associate Deniz Kurtel and Wagon Repair’s Konrad Black all playing on a night which will see dancers, magicians, a special glove and much more all unfold. Then on Friday May 24, it’s Insane, with residents John Digweed joined by DJ Sneak, Chicago legend and Classic Music Company co-founder Derrick Carter and New York’s pioneering Mark Farina. Also appearing is Cadenza’s Uner and X-Press 2, in addition to the likes of Renaissance’s Dave Seaman playing in the Global Room. Finally on Sunday May 26, the first of Solomon’s +1 parties will start, with the Diynamic label boss himself playing all night long with one special guest, Germany’s Ame from the Innervisions label.
