In Ibiza To See The Prodigy

It seems Ibiza found us before we found it!

With Sapphira’s debut release “Circles” by prolific production duo Audiofly having been played at Space in Ibiza in 2006 by none other than legendary DJ Sasha, we found ourselves drawn back to the White Island this month as we learnt the Cafe Ole show at Space on Mondays were running a night called “Burlesque” and already fulfilling the vision of combining beats, erotica and performance art in a club environment, doyenne Dita Von Teese had graced the stage only a few weeks earlier at that!

With the bass driven album “Mistress” now finished, Sapphira & Tonestepa also headed to Ushuaia to witness a key inspirational band – The Prodigy! Set in the grounds of Europe’s first Hard Rock Hotel the setting, sound system and lighting were simply astounding.

The electrifying stage shows by Cafe Ole at Space, Matinee at Amnesia combined with the pounding basslines and energy of being front row at The Prodigy concert have ignited us with ideas galore for our own live performance and I will be writing a detailed overview of the scene on the Balearic Islands in the coming months. Look out for the feature on Nightlife in Ibiza in the “Sapphira and the City” column in the forthcoming Pin Up Kittens magazine www.pinupkittensmagazine.com
