New York, NY. (Top40 Charts/ Cocoon Ibiza) - It's that time of year again with Sven Vath and his techno cohorts start their Ibiza invasion. This is the year 2008, and what once was called Science Fiction has now arrived in the present. Everybody is using an adequate communicator, controlling and storing half his life, and music is more and more becoming a very important part of it. The songs that help us forget our daily routine are the soundtrack of our lives, meanwhile covering the whole world. Cosmic Electronic Grooves from planet Minimal Techno Funk - and each summer, Ibiza is the capital of this planet and Sven Vath is its galactic commander! The Amnesia pyramid continues sending out its signal, and the signal says: "Disco Invasion"! We are following this signal and will travel all the way through the Techno universe, in order to bring you the revolution: the Disco
Invasion, that blends everything together and leaves behind old categories. 'The sky is the limit' on planet Minimal Techno Funk, Ibiza is our International Spaceport and Sven gives us the command for take-off!
Cocoon Ibiza is an absolutely unique story of success, and is approaching its tenth anniversary with rapid strides. But neither the long-time duration of the Cocoon Summer Residency nor its constantly growing support are the true indicators of success - it's the musical content and the high artistic values of the campaigns that have been and still are unrivalled on the island, regarding continuity and consequence. Where chumming-up mainstream has replaced the Balearic Beats over the last years, Cocoon was able to give a totally new musical impulse to the island and has also significantly influenced many competitors. The latest strike in this constantly developing Cocoon universe does now unite the euphoria of the late Disco and Funk era and current Techno and House tendencies, and thus heralds a new stage of contemporary music.
The matching frequencies and sounds are delivered by the three Cosmic Groove Commanders Sven Vath, Ricardo Villalobos and Richie Hawtin. supported by the Electronic Funk Armada around Loco Dice, Luciano, Andre Galluzzi, Steve Bug, Marco Carola and Pig&Dan. Also, Miss Magda and the brothers Tiefschwarz are on board again, and Frankfurt support comes this year from Frank Lorber, C-Rock, Dorian Paic and our most beloved space vegetable: Cosmic Karotte!
Similarly to the past Ibiza orbits, the Cosmic Dance Department is again taking care for the newcomer space pilots of the last years: Raresh and Chris Tietjen will be with us - and this year's new cadets on the Cocoon Spaceship are Reboot, Johnny D, Danny Fiddo, Matt Star, Mathias Kaden as well as Berlin-based Cassy and Vakant shooting star Tolga Fidan.
In this summer, live consoles are operated by Minilogue, Gaiser, Extrawelt, Heartthrob, Dandy Jack, Melchior Productions, Barem and Guy Gerber; but also the Ibiza veterans from our friendly star alliance Alter Ego will be at the controls on the command bridge and will have a significant influence on the course.
OPENING PARTY: JUNE 16, 2008
