BBC 1’s Radio 1 weekend has become an Ibiza institute, now in its 11th year, it’s got bigger and better as the years have rolled by. For 2006, it was extended to a week, with Essential Mixes live from the island’s clubs all week, as well as all the big dance show’s broadcasting live from Café Mambo on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. With the week finally culminating with an extended five hour Essential Mix, live from a special Cream at Amnesia, on Saturday night.

We didn’t arrive until just after 3am, due the chaos of trying to get a bus or a taxi out of San Antonio. Amnesia was already heaving, and it continued to fill, but as it was the Radio 1 weekend, most of the crowd were friendly and relaxed. Steve Angello had just took to the decks when we arrived and he started of with one of the biggest tunes of the Summer, Eric Prydz v Pink Floyd – Proper Education. His set consisted of a bit of everything after that, with techno, house and a bit of minimal being provided. His own mix of Eurythmics crowd pleaser Sweet Dreams had the crowd loving it, as did Fitterheadz - Sunshine. But for me, the main room in Amnesia is made for Trance and the music being played didn’t seem to suit its surroundings.

So we made our way out to the Terrace, which wasn’t as packed and was a lot cooler. Mylo was playing an exclusive House Set to the much varied crowd on the Terrace and he seemed to be well into it. A chilled out housey mix of Art Of Trance – Madagascar brought us a familiar riff with some great memories. There was a lot of crazy dancing going on out on the Terrace, with some very amusing characters showing us some very funny moves! It seemed the whole crowd were waiting for Mylo to play Drop The Pressure and when he did, it got the biggest reaction of the night on the Terrace and the whole crowd were loving it.

Back in the Main Room, Groove Armada had taken over from Steve Angello for a three hour DJ set. From about 5am, it wasn’t as crowded, meaning there was more room to dance in the Main Room. Tom Findlay and Andy Cato were taking turns on the decks, both playing their own and Groove Armada’s collective style. An unfamiliar, but excellent mix of Candi’s Sometimes I Feel Like Throwing My Hands Up In The Air was thrown in amongst some of their own productions and remixes. Just approaching 7am, came what is probably their most well know tune, Superstylin, which everyone enjoyed and sent us home with a definite spring in our step and looking forward to next year’s Radio 1 extravaganza.
