Sven Vath Presents Cocoon 20 years in Ibiza @ Amnesia

Cocoon have become more and more adventurous as the years have gone on.

Musically and in the design and visuals side of the techno scene, they rank alongside few others, making them innovators and leaders in the craft.

We witnessed a truly mesmerising party in Amnesia at the very forefront of our techno culture.

Ibiza’s significance in the global techno scene is to be experienced and Cocoon has become part of its folklore.

From Sven Vath hosting festival stages to presenting intimate club nights, there is a fanatical clued up team behind the Cocoon scene.

One of the things that caught our attention immediately was that there were no compromises with the sound or visual setup and the most important thing; the DJ lineup. Cocoon 20 with Sven at the helm was an astonishingly momentous occasion.

“I have been traveling to Ibiza since the summer of 1998 and I cannot believe I’ve never been to Amnesia, let alone a Cocoon night.

In recent years we caught great sets in DC10, Cafe Del Mar and Space where we normally wound up due to the DJ selection.

We now feel like we have been missing out all of this time.

Amnesia is a truly wonderful experience, lavish design, the sound is incredible & there’s a real authentic feel to the place.

We were well and truly spoiled for choice hearing such prolific DJ/producers ‘Tale Of Us‘ join, the emperor of Cocoon Sven Väth on the terrace, it was a milestone 20th-anniversary party celebrated in style.

We tried to take as many pics as possible, we left the terrace and walked into the club area where the selection exuded just as much class and sophistication. With Ovum maestro Josh Wink, kicking off the proceedings, he played another captivating DJ set of music I had never heard before. Throughout the night we went back & forth loving every relentless groove played by Anna & Dubfire.

What a night it turned out to be. Sven played a mammoth four and a half-hour set and really nailed it from the beginning, with his futuristic groove-driven techno slamming down an amazing sound system.”

As an old school clubber and retired vinyl spinning DJ, it was refreshing to see two boxes of records placed behind the decks. Sven Vath has been a music innovator & trendsetter since the ’80s and last night was a real magical treat. It was all about the pumping drums, beautifully clean percussion with driving gargantuan synth leads and endless energetic chug to keep us on our toes. A master class in every sense, well and truly amazing. He’s so engaging with the crowd, his love for electronic music is always on show and is quite palpable,  and super-nice to witness. 

Meanwhile, Anna was pounding it out in the Club, with an incredible amount of DJ skill. The sheer amount of mixing was really incredible and the track selection oozed class. After listening to her productions for the last couple of years I was super impressed with her, as was the enthralled crowd!

Anna then handed over the reins to Sci+Tec label supremo Dubfire who slowed the pace slightly, which made space for his own trademark deep spacey techno sound. He rocked the party in the Club until close.

Tale of Us are amongst some of our favourite artists and promoters at the minute with their own Afterlife parties happening every Thursday at Hi Ibiza. We went to see them last week and they have yet to disappoint. Their guest slot at Cocoon was no exception, as their unique blend of melodic techno just oozes style and sophistication. It’s almost hypnotising. What a way to end an incredible party. It was one of those nights that you look at your phone to see the time and want time to slow down cause you don’t want it to end.

Tale of Us and Sven

Well done Cocoon Ibiza, the happiest of birthdays for this 20-year celebration & may there be many many more to come.”
