Ibiza’s fiercest residency returns for a massive 22-week run in 2022. Glitterbox runs religiously every Sunday from May - October at Hï Ibiza. Featuring jaw-dropping production and exceptional disco and house music, Glitterbox is a joyous celebration of LGBT and club-kid culture.
On September 25, Basement Jaxx, Derrick Carter, Dimitri From Paris, DJ Harvey, Gina Breeze, Melon Bomb, Purple Disco Machine, and Ultra Naté grace the stage. Accompanied by dancers, drag queens, club kids, and every kind of party-goer, Glitterbox hopes to give you the experience of a lifetime.
A Glitterbox regular, Basement Jaxx are as multi-dimensional as they are talented. The Grammy-winning duo rose to popularity in the underground house scene of the 90s. Their party-flavored blend of UK garage, electro, and house keeps dance floors alight all night long.
Derrick Carter started out by spinning disco records at family reunions when he was nine. A few years later, he would become a pinnacle artist in Chicago’s iconic 90s house scene. Though he has no full-length albums, his mixes and hot tracks have been picked up by Mixmag, Cosmic Disco, and house lovers around the world.
Dimitri from Paris’s musical influence is rooted in 1970s funk and disco sounds. It’s from these foundations that the legendary house music producer begins his sound. He also notably incorporates movie soundtracks from the 1950s and 60s, like Breakfast at Tiffany's and La Dolce Vita, most notably in his 1996 album Sacrebleu.
Previously dubbed “the Keith Richards of dance music,” DJ Harvey once said, “you can’t understand my music until you’ve had group sex on ecstasy.” His blend of house, garage, hip hop, and disco took him around the world for over three decades. In 2014 Harvey received the Outstanding Contribution Award at the DJ Awards in Ibiza in recognition of his body of work and influence within the industry.
Though Gina Breeze is constantly evolving as an artist, that classic Chicago 808 feel is never too far away. Her After Dark EP put her on the radar of artists like The Blessed Madonna, Hifi Sean, and many more. For her Glitterbox set, expect infectious energy and lots of soul.
Local Ibiza collective Melon Bomb will also make an appearance. Some say their blend of disco and house “encapsulates the very spirit of the island.”
Now one of the leading electronic producers of his generation, Purple Disco Machine is an in-demand performer and remixer. His high-profile collaborations include Lady Gaga, Lizzo, Dua Lipa, Calvin Harris, Gorillaz, and Sir Elton John. It’s no wonder he was named Beatport’s #2 Artist of All Time.
For more than 30 years Ultra Naté has been performing and spinning live around the globe. This singer, songwriter, DJ, producer, and label owner really does it all. She embraces a variety of sounds from house and hip-hop to rock and disco. It’s no wonder she was one of the first artists in dance music signed to a record deal or named one of Billboard’s “greatest of all time.”
