Subliminal Sessions Pacha Ibiza 2012 FULL line-up

Subliminal Sessions, Pacha, Ibiza 2012

Erick Morillo holds the longest ever residency at Pacha Ibiza, now going into his 12th amazing year! His Subliminal Sessions parties have gone from strength to strength, with the last two seasons being the most highly attended, at the most VIP club on the island. As well as upfront fresh music that you will not hear anywhere else, there’s a proper party crowd in tow, and a list of VIPs as long as your arm, you just never know who you’re going to bump into you, from Diddy, Axwell, Tiesto, Paris Hilton the list goes on.

This season sees the return of Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello. The last time he played was the opening of the 2010 season, and rocked Pacha to it’s very foundations with an all night back to back set with Erick himself. Also, this year sees a residency with Mr. Dirty Dutch, Chuckie. After an amazing couple of years rocking all over the world, Chuckie will make many appearances at Subliminal Sessions this year, along with SYMPHO NYMPHO, the new super group of Erick Morillo, Harry ‘Choo Choo’ Romero and Jose Nunez, and also spinning will be Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano from Amsterdam. Other guests include AN21, Carl Kennedy, Dirty South, Max Vangeli, Norman Doray, Sneaky Sound System and Shawnee Taylor.

The theme for this season’s parties, really is out of this world. “When you’ve been out burning the candle at both ends the world becomes a little blurry, your senses are heightened and everything is not exactly as it seems. This is the feeling that has inspired the ‘Beautiful Reality’ theme this season. The venue will be transformed into a surrealist wonderland, with stairways and doors leading to erotic fantasies of the unconscious mind.” – Erick Morillo.

Here are full line-up of dates for EVERY WEDNESDAY at Pacha, through the Ibiza season 2012.

Diary: Ibiza’s Buzzing

15 Jun 2011 – Pacha, Ibiza

Erick had been in London for one day to record the forthcoming Subliminal Invasion mix – keep an eye on Subliminalrecords.com for more info on that – coming soon! He returned ready to bring the invading force to Pacha for week 3 of our season.

The island was buzzing with the opening of Pacha’s new venture, Lio. It’s a high end restaurant and beautiful club in the amazing setting that used to be El Divino, but after a multi-million dollar re-fit you’d hardly recognise the place. Let me not fail to mention it was Francisco Ferrer’s birthday bash. He’s one of the top dogs at Pacha, so everyone was in fine mood.

I walked into Pacha and the place was booming. Jose Nunez played an awesome set and the crowd was so enthusiastic. The bigwigs from equipment manufacturer Pioneer were al at the club, and they were really happy to meet Jose after his set to speak to such an accomplished DJ/producer. He knows Ibiza so well he was really happy to be back. All he keeps talking to me about is “…we need to go eat at Cami de Balafia, they have the best tomatoes there!”

Next up on the night were Azari & III, who have a unique sound all to their own. This was their first ever date in Ibiza and they were so amped to be part of such a big night on the island. By the look of the crowd, they will be back many times more.

Erick started his set with a boom. He had so much energy and it transfered out onto the dance floor. Meanwhile we had plenty of friends come by to say hello. Phil Cheeseman from Strictly Rhythm and our radio guru James Jackson, plus Duane Harden who is such a funny guy. He always smacks Erick’s bum really hard. Tiesto is starting to become the poster child of our night too!

Harry Choo Choo Romero – Overdose (Original Mix) by Subliminal Records

Harry’s new joint on Bambossa, ‘Overdose’ was a massive hit on the dancefloor. But for me, the best bit of the night was the end. So many people screaming Erick’s name, posing for pictures, getting autographs. I just love to see fans smile as they walk away from shaking Erick’s hand.

Diary: Jaxx in Ibiza, Stronger in Croatia

June 4th: Adria Music Conference, Croatia

I was very excited about this gig as we brought along our man Eddie Thoneick and planned to shoot the video for Erick and Eddie’s new summer banger, ‘Stronger’ live at the party. (Keep an eye out for that soon and if you were there you might find yourself in it!)

Eddie is such a character that having him on board our plane over from Ibiza was a pleasure. I love how cracks jokes on Nick our cameraman too. The real funny part was that he needed to use the bathroom so badly. I kept offering him water!

As we were escorted to the venue all you could see was a sea of people. The legendary Reverend Run from Run DMC was DJing and had the crowd completely pumped! He also had a few words for Erick. He told him to please keep doing what he does. So many young kids love him and that he needs to be their hero and love them back. And sure enough, Erick played an amazing set after that pep-talk. The crowd was so energetic and you know Erick always feeds off that energy.

The ladies in Croatia are some of the most beautiful women on the planet, I’m sure you will not disagree from our photos. When Erick dropped ‘Stronger’ it was off the hook. Eddie joined Erick on stage and our visuals looked amazing on the LED wall. We were able to get some great footage for our video in Croatia. It was an amazing turn out by the crowd and Reverend Run you still got it man. A true pioneer of hip hop!

June 8th: Pacha, Ibiza

Head for the hills! Subliminal Invades Ibiza yet again. For our second night of the season we were all really hyped as our new residents for 2011, Basement Jaxx, were going to be in the house. Erick is a big fan of these legends. The island was still buzzing from our opening party. Word has it, if you want to see the hottest girls, come to Subliminal on a Wednesday.

Our boy Carl Kennedy crushed it at the pre-party as Café Mambo. He has a bit of a new sound this year, what I’d like to call sexy! He kicked things off at Pacha too had the whole dance floor rocking and I mean rocking.

Basement Jaxx rocked up to the booth and told me they were so excited. They came fully prepared with about 3 show books, so I knew this would be a great night of music. And they turned the crowd inside out! Can’t wait to hear them again (they’re back for us next on July 13th.) as it looks like they are really getting into their stride with the Subliminal vibe.

By the time Erick was ready to play the dancefloor was insane, when Erick started his set all the lights went out. So all you could see were all the headbands we passed out. It was so amazing to watch. Subliminal regular Tiesto dropped by and said, and I quote “Erick is the best!” Can’t say fairer than that.

Erick played another awesome set and pushed the limits to play until about 7:07am which normally they never allow us. I guess you can say a 14 year residency says something these days! Ibiza you better get ready, Subliminal Invasion is here to stay this summer.

Loads more ultra-sexy pics from this week’s parties

Diary: Kelis Live & SW4 Madness

Ibiza was buzzing yet again this week, with another ultra special Subliminal Sessions night on the cards, staring the amazing Kelis. We started off with a killer pre-party at Cafe Mambo and the excitement about the big night ahead was heavy in the air.

Erick at Mambo

Carl Kennedy opened up the night over the island at Pacha with style, as he always does, before passing things over to Dirty South. He totally ripped up, playing some very cool bootlegs.

Then came the big moment – Kelis performing live right in the thick of the action on the VIP stage. She rocked the house from the word go. She sang ‘Scream’, ‘4th July’, ‘Accapella’, ‘Spaceship’ and ‘Milkshake’ and had the crowd going bananas.

Kelis at Pacha

She worked them lovely, so by the time the resident Witch Doctor Erick played, the whole place was explosive. And Erick was playing just what the crowd wanted to hear. He also threw in a few new tracks, which went down very well, so look out for those autumn releases on Subliminal – it’s going to be as hot as summer!

So many big names came down to party with us too. There were cameos from Tiesto, Deadmau5, A21, Richard Grey, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Max Vangelli, and everyone was in the party spirit. A21 & Max have just dropped their great mix of ‘Nothing Better’ on Subliminal too, so there was plenty to celebrate from the young guys as well as the big hitters in the house, of course.

Pacha was packed all the way till 7am and the crowd wanted more but, like always, time flies when you’re having fun so we had to leave them hungry for more. Special thanks to all that showed up and made this another serious party. Five more weeks left, Ibiza!

Plato 68, Marbella

For Friday, we moved over to Plato 68 in Marbella on the Spanish mainland. It’s a two-level nightclub with wrap around staircases and balconies overlooking the dancefloor. The DJ booth is smack in the middle of the floor and the night started off very busy. So when Erick stepped into the DJ booth it erupted like a volcano. All you could see were hands trying to touch him and fans just trying to snap a photo of their DJ icon. It was an amazing sight!

The dancers were shaking their asses all night long. One told me they have not danced like that in a long time. Special thanks to Jordi, Paty and all the fans that came out that night. See you in Ibiza!

SW4 London

Saturday daytime we were over in the UK for one of the most anticipated events of the summer, the massive SW4 festival on Clapham Common right in the middle of London.

As we arrived the streets were packed, check that, RAMMED! The festival was packed with a great line up, which saw Pete Tong and Laidback Luke on before Erick’s peaktime afternoon set, with Sasha and Armin taking things into the evening. There must have been about 50,000 fans screaming their heads off out in front of the main stage. Wow, what a vibe and so much energy!

SW4 Morillo Madness

Erick’s intro set them going, “Erick Morillo is in the house, yeah!”, and he followed that straight with ‘Live Your Life’, and people went nuts. Erick was untouchable this day, dropping all sorts of crowd-pleasers including Queen ‘We Are The Champions’ and a huge bootleg of ‘Jump Around’ by House of Pain. He crushed this festival with all the music he hit them with. It was a quickie, but a memorable. London, we’ll see you soon…

As ever, there are loads more photos in the Photos section
