Safehouse Management has just confirmed that Carl Cox will return to Space Ibiza for the 11th year in a row with his new Revolution Recruits concept. The opening party is happening on July 3rd with an amazing 12 weeks of revolutionary music planned every Tuesday night until September 18th.
Don’t expect business as usual. After ten seasons at Space Ibiza featuring some of the most renowned DJs in the world, Carl is opening up the ranks to welcome a whole army of new talent. This year’s Revolution is going to be eclectic, loud, and unforgettable. And it’s all happening at Space Ibiza, which Carl has called “the Rolls Royce of clubs.” The majority of clubbers obviously share Carl’s passion for Ibiza’s megaclub given that Space Ibiza was voted World’s Best Club two times in a row by DJ MAG (2011 & 2012). Space also just took home the Best Global Club award during the 27th Annual International Dance Awards at the 2012 WMC Winter Music Conference in Miami.
Carl Cox has earned his stripes as the global veteran of sound with non-stop performances and a smile that lights up the dance floor. No matter where he is on the decks, you can tell he’s on a personal mission to help weary foot soldiers kick off their 9-to-5 shackles and get into the more serious business of having fun. This is a man with not so much as a single cynical or jaded bone in his body – and as he says: “We are the revolution and the revolution is love.” His devotion to creating great dance music has awarded him with an enormous and loyal following and he has recently been voted “Best International DJ” in Germany’s renowned Raveline Poll, as well as being named “Best Techno DJ” in the 2011 Ibiza DJ Awards. But don’t believe for a minute that Carl is going to lose his lets-get-everybody-in-the-house attitude or forget who his friends are. In fact, Revolution fans will be happy to hear that resident DJs Yousef, UMEK and Nic Fanciulli return to rally the troops again this summer. Ibiza clubbers can expect another blockbuster Revolution this year. Lynn Cosgrave, who heads Safehouse says: “We’re putting all our energy behind building this night to even new heights. There will be familiar faces but also incredible new talent and styles of music.”
The Revolution Recruits broadens its reach with two competitions
Carl is looking to recruit four talented DJs to join him for a spotlight performance this season in Ibiza. Those who believe they have the mettle to brave the stage are invited to enter ‘The Revolution Recruits DJ Contest’ by sending in their best 30-minute DJ set via Mixcloud. A total of four winners will get the chance to perform live in Ibiza this summer. Safehouse Management will cover return flights and accommodation. All winners are also invited to attend a short course at the renowned SAE Institute to further develop their skills, as well as receiving premium memberships to SoundCloud and Headliner.fm.
Carl has also announced that he is on a quest to establish an official theme track for his massively successful Tuesday night parties. ‘The Revolution Recruits Theme Contest’ is a unique competition concept that challenges ambitious music producers to transform samples submitted by several Intec Digital artists into a track they feel will best communicate the spirit of Carl’s Revolution. The winning theme will be used as part of The Revolution Recruits promo material and officially released after the 2012 season has ended. The winner will also get the chance to further develop his or her skills with one of the short courses offered by the SAE Institute. Premium memberships from SoundCloud and Headliner.fm are also in store for the winner.
