At time of press, DC10's rural den of inequity was staring at a season-long ban with rumours that it has dripped its last dregs of debauchery altogether. Only time will tell if this unruly, unrestrained tearaway of Ibiza's clubbing family will be given a chance to open its doors again. If it doesn't, the White Isle will sorely miss its unique hedonistic charge and spirited rebellious debauchery this summer.
DC10's flagship Circo Loco party was one of the world's most unrestricted forums when it comes to tribal rhythms, minimal grooves and primal techno. Marathons from Timo Maas, Ricardo Villalobos and Richie Hawtin remain stuff of legend there.
"There is no place on Earth that has the same spirit and atmosphere," believes Freak 'N' Chic boss Dan Ghenacia. "Before Circo Loco, a lot of clubs on the island were sticking to one sound or playing commercial music but now things have changed. DC10 was a place we could all go and hear the best techno, tribal, minimal and deep house - played together and without boundaries."
