CARL COX PICKS HIS TOP 10 SPACE IBIZA CLASSICS

One more time...

On the brink of Space’s final ever Closing Fiesta, DJ Mag Ibiza asks Carl Cox to list the top ten tracks that will remind him of the famous super-club forever. From Daft Punk to Booka Shade, here’s the top ten tunes closest to Coxy’s heart...

Joris Voorn
‘Incident’
(Rejected, 2011)
“This is the track that started it all for Joris! It’s this massive, piano-driving tech-house monster, and it was breaking all dancefloors.”


Tomaz & Filterheadz
‘Sunshine’
(INTEC, 2002)
“This track was all about the builds and drops. Space dancefloor was always lights-out until the track builds back up and then… BAM! There it is!”


Danny Marquez & Ferry B
‘Afrocatalans’
(Defected, 2004)
“The most perfect soundtrack for your night out on the terrace at Space. When you hear this you will be smiling, clapping your hands and shaking your hips.”


Booka Shade
‘Mandarin Girl’
(Get Physical, 2005)
“What a tune! It blew me away — such a fresh new sound, so deep and very, very funky. One of the best breakdowns to play at Space ever.”


Daft Punk
‘One More Time’
(Virgin, 1998)
“Being one of the first DJs to play this record, I could not wait to play it on the original Space terrace. Everyone was singing it right away — what a tune!”


Octave One
‘Blackwater’
(430 West Records, 2000)
“Brings a tear to my eye every time that I get to play this track. One of the best intros in any club track — Detroit, baby!”


Mark Broom
‘Lemon’
(Saved, 2010)
“Massive disco-tech track that I played at the end of the night at Space. I still play it today, there is nothing as powerful as this.”


DJ Rolando
‘Knights Of The Jaguar’
(Underground Resistance, 1999)
“A Space classic forever. Go on YouTube and look up ‘Space Sit-Down’ with me and Loco Dice at our closing party set together. You will see how much this track means to the clubbers — a massive moment.”


Dustin Zahn
‘Stranger To Stability (Len Faki Remix)’
(Rek D, 2009)
“Big techno track that rocks the dancefloor. Still today it causes mayhem!”


Laurent Garnier
‘Man With The Red Face’
(F Communication, 2008)
“One of the most well-crafted techno records ever made. The sax playing still rings in my ears which fronts the whole track — this is timeless. I will be playing this for my (Music Is Revolution) Closing Party.”
