Carl Cox revealed plans to build a new Space Ibiza last month (August), and he has now revealed the full team behind the venture.
Cox is joined in plans to build the new White Isle club by Pepe Rosello, the owner/founder of the original Space Ibiza, Dave Browning, an Ibiza promoter for 15 years who now works on the Game Over parties, and Juan Arenas, Space Ibiza’s general manager for its final ten years before it closed its doors for the last time in 2016.
Speaking about plans for the new club, Cox said ,“Space club Ibiza has always been my home for the last 20 years, and now to pave the new way for the future of Space is really exciting. Forming a partnership with Pepe, Juan, and Dave Browning, to run the newly formed team, feels solid in the way that we are a family team, and I feel we can bring everything back to where it belongs.
“We already have some exciting news for next year, and we will tell you all more about that nearer the time. But for now I am very happy with my new role for Space, and I can happily fly the Space flag high.”
After closing in 2016, Space Ibiza went on to take the no. 1 spot in our DJ Mag Top 100 Clubs poll in 2017.
On the new Space Ibiza, founder of the original club, Rosello said, “Space is a way of living the music, which is part of our shared experiences in the most vibrant moments of our life. The roots of Ibiza extend to new destinations with the joy, passion and enthusiasm for this adventure, to return to our house, the island.”
