A party you can rely on to deliver exactly what it says on the tin; Solid Grooves is a night focused purely on the beats. With no bells and whistles to compete with, the event is stripped-back to the basics and all about creating a space for its following to let loose in whatever way calls them. The house and tech soundtrack of the night is one to please those who lean more towards an underground taste in music. Quick drops and rapid BPMs move out in favour of sets that grip and hold a crowd from DJ to DJ. The self-titled record label is best known for championing a new breed of talent serving up heavy duty sounds that are both crowd-pleasing and refined.
The hugely popular residency has its foot both in London and Ibiza and on the White Isle, the Vista Club inside Privilege is where this knees-up takes space. Founder Michael Bibi is a regular on the roster alongside names to the sound of Dennis Cruz, Detlef, Latmun and Darius Syrossian. Peppered in between by upcoming artists, you can catch further heavyweights like Cassy and wAFF throughout the summers. It’s fair to say, acts in the genre known for throwing floor-rumbling parties wherever they go take centre stage at Solid Grooves.
Attracting a musically-versed crowd, largely comprising of a strong network of island workers, the vibe at the events are unrestricted and as raw as it gets. The best kind of dancefloor for lingering on to every last beat, the surprise comes for those who troop till the very end. Dancing underneath the sunlight filtering from the glass roof above is a spectacle – and treat – for those who choose to end in hedonistic style.
Over three seasons to its name, Solid Grooves is the party that proves with a solid line-up the magic will always come through. These days, the brand prides itself on its authentic edge amongst its louder neighbours, keeping the acts as fresh as they have been since day one. Committed to its offering of the best sounds appearing in the scene, the team at Solid Grooves continue to cement themselves as a firm favourite on the island.
