Take the next stepâ¦ ENTER.
LONDON, June 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Music. Sake. Technology. Experience.
RICHIE HAWTIN reveals the line-ups for his visionary ENTER. concept, taking place at Space on Thursdays.
THURSDAY is set to become the hottest night on the Ibiza club calendar this year, with the introduction of Richie Hawtin's visionary ENTER. concept. Hawtin will take over Thursday nights at the award-winning club Space, curating five areas built on the principles of music, sake, technology and experience.
Richie Hawtin invites you to ENTER. into an experience filled with music, surrounded by technology, celebrated with Sake and shared with friends. Â
The main experience will take place in Space's main room, which will be specially customized with new structural lighting installations and technologies.
Joining Hawtin over the season are key members of his extended M-nus family; Magda, Paco Osuna, Gaiser, Heartthrob, Ambivalent, Hobo and Matador. These artists will create the foundation of the event, uniting each week with other friends and collaborators including pioneers such as Dubfire, Carl Craig, Christian Smith, Josh Wink, Berghain residents Ben Klock and Marcel Dettmann, Mathew Jonson and NYC's finest Victor Calderone.
Richie Hawtin states: "Each week ENTER. brings together a unique group of electronic music friends who are all at the top of their game. The energy and excitement which is created when we all gather together is infectious and can only be the basis for a series of truly incredible experiences!"
On August 2nd, after talking about it for years since an after-hours at Bar 25 in Berlin, Hawtin and Damian Lazarus finally share the same bill in the main room of ENTER. The two label heads bring their own unique visions and sounds together in a one-night journey into the unknown!
On August 23rd, in the spirit of bringing new talent to the island, Hawtin invites up-and-coming fellow Canadian Grimes (aka Claire Boucher) to an exclusive Ibiza appearance in ENTER.'s main room. Citing influences as wide-ranging as Aphex Twin, TLC, New Age, Industrial and Glitch, Claire's futuristic sound encapsulates the musical vision of ENTER. This night will feature a special extended set by Hawtin playing both before and after Grimes, setting up what will surely be a unique musical moment.
Richie Hawtin states: "Each artist performing at ENTER. demonstrates how rich the world of electronic music has become. Claire brings together many different influences creating her own unique interpretation of what electronic music can be. Grimes live is something that must be experienced physically and makes total sense within the ENTER. environment."
Continuing on with the tradition of his long time relationship with Cocoon and Ibiza, Sven VÃ¤th & Hawtin will come together in a special double header during late August seeing them share Amnesia's Terrace at Cocoon on Monday August 27th and then later again that week on Thursday at Space in ENTER.'s main room (August 30th). A special and rare appearance on Ibiza for VÃ¤th outside of his Cocoon Amnesia residency and a rare moment where VÃ¤th & Hawtin, long-time friends and collaborators, once again unite to celebrate the music they love in two nights of intensity and craziness.
Richie Hawtin states: "It's both Sven and my mission to create the most incredible experiences possible for our audience, and putting us together twice in one week is sure to spiral completely out of control! This will go beyond any Ibiza club politics and be a celebration of music and friendship."
If that's not enough, a yet to be announced "M-nus VS…" special event on September 13th will add to the momentum of this first year of collaboration and celebration. Â Stay tuned!
ENTER.Sake (the pre-party)
ENTER.Sake is the island's first true Sake Bar experience - an intimate Japanese inspired room with DJ sets from major guests starting each Thursday at 10pm. Guests at the Sake bar will be treated to a series of intimate DJ sets from artists including Dubfire, Francois K, Josh Wink, Magda, Carl Craig, Paco Osuna, Nina Kraviz, Richie Hawtin, Maya Jane Coles, and weekly resident Hito playing an eclectic fusion of electronic music from a Japanese perspective. It's a rare opportunity to see such established artists in a small room environment, firmly stamping the bar's new position as the most alluring pre-party on the island. The party starts at 10pm with performances from the names above - so get there early. Anybody entering with a black dot! on their body will also get a €5 discount.
The famed Space terrace will be the scene of ENTER.Kehakuma, where Hawtin will bring his own selection of artists to an already established hotbed of emerging electronic talent. Joining existing Kehakuma residents Nick Curly and Remo, techno's leading lady Magda and M-nus' Barem both step up in a series of exclusive appearances at ENTER.Kehakuma.
Each week there will be performances from the most exciting names in the electronic music scene: Maya Jane Coles, Nina Kraviz, Guy Gerber, Clickbox, Marc Houle, and Premiesku, ENTER.Kehakuma offers up an unrivalled box of electronic treats for even the most discerning of clubbers. Rekids label head Radio Slave will perform at the opening event on July 5th. tINI stops in for three scheduled performances including a back to back set with Enzo Siragusa on July 26th and sets from Edu Imberon, Heartthrob, Heidi, Mike Huckaby, The Martinez Brothers, Yaya, Roman FlÃ¼gel, Andrea Oliva and Martin Buttrich complete the picture.
Each room within the ENTER. concept will be touched by technology: from live Internet feeds, to visualizations of music & sound, to the interactive installations of the transformed Sunset Terrace - now titled, ENTER.Interakt. Â Expect an experience like never before on the island. There will be no music artists performing - the people are the experience.
ENTER.Air. will showcase a series of innovative guests known for pushing the boundaries of electronic music and technology. Opening with Mute's Daniel Miller and Seth Hodder on July 5th, the rooftop terrace will also play host to DJ performances from Francois K, Atom Heart, Byetone, Alva Noto, Matthew Hawtin, Global Communications, Clark Warner, Mark Ernestus, Tommi Gronlund, and live shows from Jon Gaiser's VOID project and Detroit new-comer Luke Hess.
Richie Hawtin states: "With ENTER.Kehakuma, ENTER.Air and ENTER.Interakt we have the opportunity to introduce people to the wider sounds and concepts of electronic music. Â ENTER. brings together music, people, technology, culture and ideas from all over the world in a way that Ibiza has never seen before!"
