Awarded “Best Global Club” at the International Dance Music Awards in 2005, 2006, and again this year, Space Ibiza is making its way to Toronto for the second annual Space Ibiza Festival. Space originated in 1989 in Playa d’en Bossa on the outskirts of Ibiza Island and has been traveling all over the world ever since.
This year Space Ibiza Festival Toronto will include an impressive line up including Umek, Pleasurekraft, & Jay Lumen, as well as rising stars Heartik, and Remo. Along with Toronto’s finest, this line up is guaranteed to light up the dance floor for 3000 crazy fans come Saturday 9th June 2012.
Umek has been the talk of techno this year, with massive releases on his very own label 1605, as well as Mistakes, Hell Yeah, Nervous, & Toolroom to name a few. His new tune “One More Sound” drops on Toolroom Records on June 6th, just in time for Ibiza 2012.
Kaveh and Kalle AKA Pleasurekraft are the definitive tech house duo, with originals and remixes released on Great Stuff, Noize, Hotfingers and more. Expect to see them play their new track “Murdered Out” a collaborative effort with Belocca, out now on Beatport.
When it comes to tech house, Jay Lumen will not disappoint an audience, as his skilled ability as a DJ & producer are strong and consistent. His performance at last years Space Ibiza Festival in Toronto went down as the set of the night; as the last men standing in the early hours of the morning flooded into the Liberation Lounge at Sound Academy to witness his craft. Lumen has releases on many labels including Noir, Great Stuff, Mistakes, 100% Pure, Form and others. His track “teach us” is still in the top-five techno tracks on Beatport.
As DJs, Umek, Jay Lumen, and Pleasurekraft have proven time and time again with effective music selection, that they have the ability to work a crowd.
Space Ibiza hits Toronto on Saturday June 9th at Sound Academy!
