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’.”
