Last week’s Cocoon party at Amnesia saw two of techno’s biggest personalities — Richie Hawtin & Nina Kravis — go toe-to-toe, room-against-room for a Cocoon techno marathon. And judging by these photos (above) we’ve managed to snagged — it was a big one.
Richie Hawtin played the first of his five Ibiza dates for Cocoon this summer. He was joined in the main room by Sven Vath (obviously) and Jon Gaiser, who has just released his third studio album via Hawtin’s Minus imprint (check out at stream of the album below). In the other room, Nina Kraviz was back for her second of five dates this summer, and the follow up to a stunning opener. tINI played the first of his four dates, and UK selector Anthea played her debut, too.
The Cocoon techno freight train continues this Monday, as Sven Väth meets Acid Pauli in the Amnesia Terrace. Pauli has fast become one of Ibiza’s most exciting new residents and joining Sven on the Terrace will showcase the merging of two of magical minds. The ever-impressive Ilario Alicante is back for his first date since his impressive start to the season at the opening party. Joining him is long time Cocoon legend, Josh Wink, and warming things up first is Konstantin.
