Sven Vath @ Blue Mar­lin Ibiza UAE

Infusion Magazine - - LOOKING BACK -

When I heard that the almighty Papa Sven was head­ing to town to play Blue Mar­lin, I was a lit­tle more than ex­cited! Since it was my first time to hear the living leg­end play, I was ready for a mag­i­cal ride, and that is ex­actly what he gave us. He opened with Matthew Dekay’s ‘ Fang­tango’ which set a very sexy pace and then con­tin­ued on with swirls of house and techno in­clud­ing Mind Against’s ‘ Strange Days’ and Deep Down’s ‘ Dast’. It was so won­der­ful to see a vinyl only set mixed so seam­lessly. Sven def­i­nitely has a pres­ence on and off the decks, bounc­ing around to ev­ery track in his wild space- age shoes and kiss­ing ev­ery­one that en­tered the booth. Even though some thought it was too packed, no one could ar­gue with the qual­ity of the mu­sic that was be­ing pumped through those amaz­ing speak­ers, which had the whole place elec­tri­fied! Papa Sven con­tin­ues to live up to his name, which is in­cred­i­ble con­sid­er­ing he’s been at this game as long as I’ve been alive.
