Everything was better back in the day, right?! How people used to rave…Down the rabbit hole…
Well, maybe not. But it’s worth double-checking how things did go down decades ago every once in a while. You know, just for that warm, smudgy, nostalgic glow….
Essex rave scene with a fresh-faced The Prodigy

King Coxy dominates Ibiza
In 2001, Cox began a yearly residency at Space Ibiza, a nightclub located in Ibiza, Spain. He began playing on the terrace for Space’s “We Love… Space on the Terrace”. Following that, he was asked to play on Thursdays inside the club, which he was hesitant about at first. For fifteen years, Cox built his residency entitled “Music is Revolution”. In 2016, he decided to end his yearly seasonal residency at Space Ibiza. In late 2015, Cox announced that 2016 will be his last year hosting a summer residency at Space Ibiza, as the club was closing and he came to the realization that Ibiza is not the same as it used to be. The final season of Cox’s residency at Space Ibiza was entitled “The Final Chapter” and took place every Tuesday during the summer of 2016. Cox finished his residency at Space Ibiza on 20 September 2016 by playing a vinyl and CDJ, ten-hour set. Artists who joined Cox on his final night as part of his residency at Space Ibiza included tINI, Popof, Nic Fanciulli and DJ Sneak. Cox also played at Space Ibiza’s closing fiesta on 2 October 2016 with Tale of Us, Anja Schneider, and Darius Syrossian.
