Spending the early season carving out its reputation for Saturday Night Ibiza glamour, this Saturday 27 September Glitterbox reaches its climax with a closing party that will be the pinnacle of everything the party aspired to be. The night presents a very special live PA from India, Masters At Work vocal collaborator on tracks ‘I Can’t Get Not Sleep’, ‘Runaway’, ‘To Be In Love’ and ‘Backfired’.
DJ sets on the night are from each of this season’s main residents Dimitri From Paris, Joey Negro and Late Nite Tuff Guy, together with a supporting cast of DJ Antz playing back to back with DJ Pippi, Mr Doris, with Shovell (live on percussion).
Launched in June, the weekly Saturday night residency at Booom set out to bring back the original spirit of house music to the White Isle - Glitterbox became a hedonistic and glamourous playground for the island crowd and those style conscious international clubbers seeking an alternative to flashy big room gimmickry, trendy underground fads or the homogenous tech-house soundtrack that’s taken hold elsewhere.
Where Glitterbox refuses to take itself too seriously it’s been all about playing good music, reflected in the weekly line-ups which have included Hercules & Love Affair (who played two live
shows), Kenny Dope, Joey Negro, Late Nite Tuff Guy, David Morales, Todd Terry, Horse Meat Disco, Dimitri From Paris, Simon Dunmore, Lovebirds, FCL, Barbara Tucker, Lady Linn and more.
Defected’s Simon Dunmore summarises the essence of Glitterbox’s success: “What truly defines Glitterbox is the people. The right people bring a party to life; give it a personality, a ‘realness’. We wanted to bring back that social aspect of clubbing in Ibiza, a word of mouth event that was not driven by superstar DJs or gimmicks, but a night that was about exceptional music provided by exceptional DJs, and enjoyed by exceptional people… A party that creates anticipation, that you make an effort to attend, and where you can get lost in the music. The fact that we have got close to our objective gives me a real sense of achievement.”
