There's always a certain level of excitement that builds when the month of May rolls around. Sure, festival season is about to kick in and the sun's trying its very best to poke out of the miserable British skyline but there's one place that never loses its charm, never loses the hype and never goes sparingly on the build up.
That place is Ibiza and no matter how you feel about the dance music mecca, it's always been the true home of hedonism, good music and a lot of fucking dancing.
Last year was a weird one though as the most iconic club on the island and one of the most revered venues on the planet, Space, shut it doors after 27 years, throwing Ibiza into a temporary state of uncertainty. However, last night that same club opened its doors once again under a new guise, with a new identity and a new legacy to build. Hï Ibiza is here.
With Ushuaïa at the helm and a complete revamp of the interior and exterior, the world's greatest super club just got way more super and we braved the madness of the opening party to bring you the full lowdown.
The line-up for Hï's first foray into Ibiza life spared no expense and it gave a good overview of the residents who are going to be in control over the coming few months. Black Coffee, Luciano, Joris Voorn and Kölsch all turned in some pretty special sessions and kickstarted their 2017 campaigns with serious fervour.
If you were there, you know, if you weren't, then here are the tracks that helped Hï deliver on almost every level.
Ibiza, we hope you're ready.
