MAKTUB – HEART
Geographically, you’ll find Heart located on the edge of the Marina in Ibiza Town, slap bang in the middle of Lío and Pacha. In terms of atmosphere and aesthetics, the mood is part club, part cabaret and the clientele who hang here tend to be a little bit older than the clubbers who party in Playa d’en Bossa and San Antonio. Consequently, Heart’s headline parties can be somewhat artsy. But musically the output is always underground in pitch. This summer, the venue has added an extra dose of shamanic tech to its weekly roster in the form of 36-year old Dutch composer Satori. Rather than spinning vinyl or dropping .wav files, Satori will be running two laptops, launching clips, triggering a drum computer and playing all manner of weird sci-fi woodwind instruments which he links up to his synthesiser. It’s live, but it’s still an electronic performance. And along with Bedouin’s Sunday night party, Saga, Maktub offers ravers who haven’t visited Heart another excuse to peruse this slick, somewhat left of field nightclub.
