“My first time in Ibiza was the summer of ‘97 or ’98…I can't really remember which! Let’s just say my friend and I made the mistake of getting a bit carried away before the flight took off and spent the entire flight bouncing off the walls! Anyway, we finally made it and went straight to Manumission where a lot of my friends were workers. So we just partied loads and had a lovely time.
The next day we went to Space and I saw what I still regard as the best DJ set I have ever seen, by Thomas Bangalter on the old Space terrace. It was an absolute master-class of DJing and record selection that culminated in Bangalter picking up the mixer and using the feedback of the phono leads from one of the decks to create a bassline. Utter madness!”
