One of the most established parties of the electronic music scene in Ibiza confirms the renewal of Saturdays at Space Ibiza. The season will run from June 6th until September 26th and in anticipation, Kehakuma confirms four dates for its 2015 season with two key figures of the industry: Josh Wink and Steve Bug special b2b sets.
The aesthetics of Kehakuma remain as one of the most guarded parts of the project, ranging from sensual geishas to the fragile evolution of a butterfly converted into origami, minimalistic oriental elements and imagery is carefully selected.
Staying connected and true to Japan, also known as the land of the rising sun, a touch of lava red runs like a common thread through the years of Kehakuma’s metamorphosis.
This years’ edition will feature the iconic Japanese Macaque monkey with its distinctive red face. Just like the Macaque’s temper being contentious at times, Kehakuma will take on a more aggressive course this year, hitting the island with a renewed set of artists, but undaunted in concept: offering the public the real agitators of House and Techno worldwide, just as demonstrated by the heads of Poker Flat and Ovum Recordings, two labels that have had a remarkable influence in the history of electronic music.
Josh Wink is one of the regulars at major music events. Originally from Philadelphia and going strong for over 25 years, he has been one of the pioneers of acid sound, followed by the success of productions that crossed boundaries, such as “Don’t Laugh”, “I’m Ready” and “Higher State of Consciousness”.
His Kehakuma dance partner will be Steve Bug, one of the driving forces behind the “sound of Berlin”, always halfway between Minimal, House and Techno. Steve, who was one of the headliners of the past Kehakuma Closing, manages Poker Flat Records since 1998, an essential label found in every acclaimed DJ’s collection. From its main label evolved Audimatique, Dessous and Traffic Signs.
Experience, knowledge and musical understanding from these two great artists is being expected as a small appetizer to what will be a flavourful 2015 season full of House and Techno.
Steve Bug B2B Josh Wink confirmed dates are:
Saturday June 13th
Saturday July 11th
Saturday August 8th
Saturday September 12th
