Carl Cox, dance music’s favourite artist made history at club Space in Ibiza. Cox had revealed he refuses to play any other club in Ibiza after Space closing.
Cox says: “I’m still struggling. I watch and I know everything that is happening in that club. I don’t actually need to go in that club to be convinced of what I think of what is good or bad about it. I hear so many stories about it that I feel I don’t actually need to go there.’ ‘I’m never going to do another residency on the Island, there is no club for me to play like that – Space was definitely the place for me. We have the idea of bringing Space back next year for maybe an opening and closing, but apart from that we are actually looking for a new area to build a new Space somewhere on the island.”
Is Cox ready for the new move? : “Yes, it’s going to happen – there’s no doubt about that! I’m going to bring it back in the near or the distant future. I mean, I’ve lost my home and I need to build a new one. There’s no point in me going to Pacha to have the Space ideal. There’s no point in me going to Amnesia and just put the Space logo on that club. There’s no point in me going to Privilege and doing the same thing. There is no point, because Space was built as an independent club in Playa d’en Bossa. Playa d’en Bossa only became Playa d’en Bossa because of Space. The new Space doesn’t actually have to be on Playa d’en Bossa. Obviously we need some place where it’s a little bit quiet. There is no way I’m going to build a Space nightclub next to Ushuaia or anything. We will go to a completely new place with a new concept. But the idea is to have the same people who made Space and have people who want to support me in my quest to create a new Space back on the island.”
Carl Cox added to his interview that the club will open in 2020 in the White Island in a new destination!
