Usually we don’t write reviews about the parties.
But this time it’s different; yesterday we attended the Ushuaïa opening party, which we believe was a most perfect event.
Why? For several reasons.
First of all, the organization was very professional but it was the music that really made the difference.
We arrived at the club in Playa d’En Bossa early, and got to hear Los Suruba: we have loved them for many years as they are genuinely really good artists.
Then it was the turn of the Japanese Dj and producer Hito.
She played a most beautiful and elegant vinyl set. We think that Hito should try and find more space on the island, and we hope that it will happen soon.
After Hito? The stylish Mr Guy Gerber arrived, an artist who really makes a difference: he produced an hour and a half of some really great music.
If you arrived at Ushuaia late and missed his set, we are truly sorry as you missed a remarkable performance.
After Gerber, Maya Jane Coles played, and we liked her set too.
After Maya, was the turn of “the Landlord” – Andrea Oliva.
The Italo/Swiss Dj and producer has been synonymous with good music for many years, and this time Andrea scored another incredible result with excellent and eclectic music. See you soon at ANTS!
Up next? Two brilliant performances by Joris Voorn & Hot Since 82: these are artists who know how to make their audience happy and their sets were exceptionable. Everything was then ready for the great finale, and Richie Hawtin took control of the stage: we know and have loved Richie for many years.
He’s an artist with his sound and his successful history.
His performance was simply beautiful and without compromise. Richie most definitely has the authority to play that way.
So, our compliments to Ushuaïa for an unforgettable opening party in 2016, and no doubt a great summer season!
