After first launching at the renowned Space club on the Playa d’en Bossa last year, pioneering techno DJ/producer/label head Richie Hawtin’s weekly ENTER. residency is set to return to Ibiza for its second summer beginning on July 4.
“Taking the next step, this year we have moved things around,” Hawtin tells Resident Advisor in a recent interview, “rebuilding each room and inviting a deeper selection of artists specifically chosen to create five unique areas each with their own musical journey and audio/visual experience.” This year’s three-month ENTER. residency appears to be as expertly curated as last year’s with big talents such as Maya Jane Coles, Nina Kraviz, Sven Väth, Luciano, Loco Dice, Jamie Jones, Claude VonStroke, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, and Ben Klock, among others, set to perform at the five-room party in Ibiza.
“Walking around ENTER. should be like a journey, an ever-changing landscape of evolving beats, textures, and moods all combining together to form a cohesive experience unlike anything else you’ll find on Ibiza,” explains Hawin. “ENTER. invites everyone in, ENTER. challenges us all to take the next step and to find out what lies beyond our own horizon of understanding.”
Resident Advisor has the full details and schedule on the fast-approaching ENTER. series, along with a brief email exchanged with Hawtin about what dance-music lovers can expect to encounter at his Thursday night parties on the Spanish island. You can read RA’s full article here.
