Space Ibiza Team Partners with Carl Cox, Hints at Big Announcement

carl cox space ibiza

After revealing in August his intent to open a new Space Ibiza, which shuttered in October 2016, Carl Cox has aligned himself with the venue’s founder Pepe Rosello, general manager Juan Arenas and Ibiza promoter Dave Browning to “push the brand forward,” suggesting that an announcement of a new club is forthcoming.

Said Cox, who held a long-time residency at Space, in a press statement: “Space club Ibiza has always been my home for the last 20 years, and now to pave the new way for the future of Space is really exciting, and now forming a partnership with Pepe, Juan, and Dave Browning, to run the newly formed team, it feels solid in the way that we are a family team, and I feel we can bring everything back to where it belongs.”

Cox hinted at the new club’s opening on the horizon, but was vague: “We already have some exciting news for next year, and we will tell you all more about that nearer the time. But for now I am very happy with my new role for Space, and I can happily fly the Space flag high.”

Pepe Rosello, the owner/founder of Space in Ibiza, added: “Space is a way of living the music, which is part of our shared experiences in the most vibrant moments of our life. The roots of Ibiza extend to new destinations with the joy, passion and enthusiasm for this adventure, to return to our house, the island.”

Though the missive announced news of the partnership, it ended with a tease: “At the time of print, none of the partners can neither confirm nor deny the many rumours of a new venue in Ibiza suffice to say this is just the first page in the next chapter the story of the ‘best club in the world’.”

GoFundMe Launched to Help Legendary UK DJ Paul ‘Trouble’ Anderson Cover Medical Bills

Paul Trouble Anderson

Friends of veteran UK DJ Paul ‘Trouble’ Anderson have launched a GoFundMe campaign to help him pay mounting medical bills. Anderson was first diagnosed with cancer in his left lung in 2011, and a CT and MRI scan this summer revealed tumors in the DJ’s brain and right lung.

According to the team behind the campaign, “In the past two weeks Paul has undergone an emergency operation to remove some of the tumour and reduce swelling and pressure to the brain, which will be followed by a course of radiotherapy. Paul now needs to seek ongoing treatment with a specialist neuro-oncology team, as well as to ensure expert aftercare, physio and rehabilitation outside of the NHS.”

“We are aiming to raise as much as possible in order to fund his healthcare.”

Anderson established himself on the late ’70s/early ’80s London scene as a tastemaker/party rocker who played everything from soul and R&B to house. His resume dates back to the earliest days of Kiss-FM, helming a mix show when it was a pirate radio station. His current condition has forced him to curtail his DJ gigs.

“Needless to say Paul may not be able to appear at most if not all of his scheduled performances. However, he is determined to try and pre-record his regular Saturday show on Mi-Soul Radio to keep the good vibes flowing.”

Jackmaster Apologizes For Drunken Behavior at Love Saves The Day Festival

Scottish DJ/producer Jackmaster (a.k.a. Jack Revill) has issued an apology for being intoxicated at Love Saves The Day, a festival held in Bristol in May. According to his statement posted yesterday on Facebook, he “behaved inappropriately and offensively to staff at the event, and damaged equipment, whilst heavily intoxicated.”

Jackmaster added, “As much as this was out of character: substances are an individual’s choice, not an excuse. I have already made major changes to my lifestyle, and will continue these ongoing. Over the last few weeks I have done everything in my ability to confront and address the repercussions of my actions head-on, and apologise personally to those that I affected. This post will serve to remind me that my behaviour was unacceptable, and it is a bid to address issues in the wider events and music industries.

“I appreciate the professionalism of Love Saves the Day for taking a strong stance for their staff, whilst maintaining openness throughout.”

Love Saves The Day’s organizers issued a response shortly afterward:

We received complaints from our staff as to the behaviour of Jack at our Love Saves The Day Festival this summer. We took the complaints extremely seriously and fully investigated the incidents.

Jack met with us and representatives of the staff involved and showed genuine remorse, full responsibility for his actions plus an undertaking to ensure that his behaviour would never be repeated at any event in the future.

Our staff and family have accepted his apology and consider this matter closed, whilst reserving the right to further pursue complaints at such point in the future that we are ever aware of this behaviour being repeated.

Love Saves the Day takes the welfare if its staff and family extremely seriously and will never tolerate any unacceptable behaviour towards them, from any member the public, contractors, or artists.
