BCM PLANET DANCE

Position:

There's been plenty of debate in the last couple of years over the democratisation of dance music, with self-appointed denizens of dance bitching about shuffling, the co-opting of the phrase 'deep house' and the unstoppable juggernaut that is EDM. So quite what they make of BCM, jewel in the crown of Magaluf, is anyone's guess.

Gladly playing up to all preconceptions, the club's website makes plenty of reference to Shagaluf's salacious reputation. But while the teenage kicks of booze and bonking are undoubtedly part of BCM's allure, it's subtitle of 'Planet Dance' underlies a commitment to attracting world renowned acts. Take a look at their 'Thank You' flyer for 2013 and it reads like the line-up for Tomorrowland or EDC, boasting Calvin Harris, Avicii, DJ Fresh, Steve Angello, Porter Robinson and Steve Aoki amongst its recent guests.

It's more Vegas than Ibiza, granted, but it's these acts who are forging ahead with the kind of main room sound suited to clubs the size of BCM, its Funktion One stacks delivering a sound second-to-none. With Showtek already confirmed for Summer 2014, alongside regular brands such as Cream, you can be sure that — whatever your feeling — BCM will be 'smashing the granny out of it' for some time to come.
