The super club opening that was on everyone’s lips smashes it out the park. The biggest club in the world has had its fair share of big opening parties over the years. The special thing about this particular one was the varied line-up from saxophone players to big house and techno DJs.
The main room and Vista Club where both open for the grand opening. The 10,000 capacity club is the perfect setting for DJ’s especially in the Vista Club as the sun is rising over San Rafael which can be seen through the floor to ceiling windows. It is a truly magical experience.
I arrived at the club early bells around 12.30am and got myself straight to the main room to catch Lovely Laura and Ben Santiago warming things up. Ben was on the decks and Lovely Laura took to the stage. It was fantastic and it was a real feel good vibe as Lovely Laura belted out her usual classics on the saxophone.
American DJ and record producer David Morales was on next and really got the place jumping. The Grammy Award winner knew exactly how to get the crowd going especially with his famous 2009 hit Needing You. He kept things current with Camelphats top hit Cola. This certainly got a fantastic response from the crowd. There was a nice variation of house and dance which warmed things up nicely for the star of the show Faithless.
By this point there was a good crowd and the Vista Club was almost full back in the main room Sister Bliss of Faithless hit the ground running with remixes of Above and Beyond and Maceo Plex. She paired new with old and as expected Faithless classics such as Insomnia.
Over in the Vista Club the highly anticipated b2b between Sasha and Kolsch for sunrise was just magical. It was a slow build up as the both musical geniuses took us on a melodic journey to a packed out room.
It was a fantastic opening party and goes to show that the super club still attracts the big names in music. With a varied line-up it worked very well!
Roll on a great season ahead!
