Earlier in the month, Carl Cox revealed that next year will be his last at Space Ibiza, ending a 15-year residency there. So why won't we be able to see him after the 2016 season at the popular party island's hot spot? The DJ explained everything to Inthemix.
"It's not that I’m walking away from the club, because Pepe [Rosello], the owner of Space, his contract is up at the club," he tells Inthemix. "He’s going to be 80 years old and will officially be out. It gets handed over to Ushuaïa Group across the road and its manager Jan will be given the keys to run Space. And once that happens, everything changes. So I have no desire to stay in that club for any reason."
Carl also described his and Pepe's close relationship, saying that "if Pepe's not there, I am not there." He added:
"We grew up together, we've been all the way through this together, and we're going to finish together. And I’m quite happy about that, because it means we leave the legacy of a club that made a difference. We can walk away with that – the legendary status of what used to happen at Space when we were there – because no one else can emulate that, it’s not possible."
So there you have it. As mentioned by Carl in his original announcement, "please do not miss a single night if you can, very special line-ups for 15 weeks."
