Cadenza Pacha Sunday/ Ushuaia Thursday
I think it’s fair to say that Luciano and his Cadenza Vagabundos
pitching up in Pacha on a Sunday night was one of the surprise
packages of recent Ibiza seasons. Cadenza, known for underground house
and techno, masters of the guerrilla party and flag flyers of the
cooler underground scene on the island choosing Pacha, the world’s
most glamorous discoth�que as their party headquarters might have
seemed like madness in some quarters but it proved to be a master
stroke, delivering one of the finest nights on the island.
2012 saw cadenza go from strength to strength. Ibiza has gotten over the
shock of the unlikely collaboration and has embraced a partnership which
offers a true underground experience on a Sunday night. I think it’s
fair to say that the cadenza pacha party is much more like the original
Cadenza vibe, even if pacha is one of the world’s most glamorous brands.
The venue does lend itself to a proper underground party, the sound
system does the sound track of underground nuggets justice and 2012 saw
many of the finest exponents of the genre deliver numerous amazing
parties throughout the summer.
Cadenza has spread its wings in recent years, occupying the Thursday in
Ushuaia, Playa d’en Bossa. 2012 saw that residency maintain the capacity
numbers it enjoyed during its launch season in 2011. Ushuaia is one of
the most talked about venues on the island and Thursday remained one of
the most popular parties, with a truly cosmopolitan crowd supporting
Luciano and his array of guests throughout the summer. Highlights of
this summer included a collaboration with Richie Hawtin and his Enter
party, which made its debut in Space in 2012, which saw both parties
collaborating to offer an unlikely double party starting in Ushuaia and
heading across to Space after midnight. The Cadenza closing party also
produced another highlight as MAW, Louie Vega and Kenny ‘dope’ Gonzalez
made a memorable appearance, with the huge crowd ignoring the rain to
send the party off in style. 2013 promises to be another exciting year
for the popular brand.
