Put simply: Carl Cox is the man. He's been the island's top dog for close to two decades, plus running respected techno imprint Intec Digital, and spending at least half the year at his sprawling property in Australia.
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...
“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.”
Carl Cox played the last ever show of his Music Is Revolution Space Ibiza residency last night (20th September), with the techno legend playing a nine-hour set in which he rolled out some classic vinyl, as he marks the end of his 15-year run at the famous club. You can watch it back on the stream below.

CARL COX’S FINAL ALL NIGHT SPACE IBIZA SET
Carl Cox has announced an extra special treat for his final ever Music Is Revolution party at Space, Ibiza.
On Tuesday 20th September, the techno legend will play vinyl for the first time in a decade, as he marks the end of his 15-year run at the famous club, which closes its doors permanently the following month.
"At the start of my residency, of course I only played vinyl but now everything is digital and has been for some years," says Coxy. "I wanted to take things back and pay homage to all those years at Space spinning records.
Believe it or not, the 2016 Ibiza season is approaching its climax.

So if you’re heading out for closing, these are the parties that you won't want to miss.
THE LAST EVER SPACE CLOSING FIESTA
Ahead of the last ever Space Ibiza closing party, we chat with some of world’s biggest DJs — from Booka Shade to James Zabiela — to ask the question: “What’s your most memorable moment from Space Ibiza?”
Space Ibiza's final closing party on 2nd October is getting ever-closer, however, according to new info from club veteran Carl Cox, that may actually be the end!
“Plans are on the table for it opening at another site but it won’t happen for at least two years," admits the techno legend, in an interview with Ticketmaster.
Coming on the UK’s own Cr2 Records, Space has released its final ever compilation CD to mark the legendary club’s impending closure. Mixed by Music Is Revolution main man Carl Cox, regular Space residents Pig & Dan, and Cr2 head honcho, Mark Brown, the compilation aims to capture a little of the club’s magic, with tracks spanning from 1989 all the way to 2016. Expect to hear records from everyone from Patrick Topping to Deetron, with a bunch of old school classics thrown in for good measure.
