As Cream moves to its new home at Ibiza’s newest super club Hï this season it marks a new and exciting chapter in its rich history. It was the announcement that nobody was expecting having made Amnesia its home for two decades.
Committed followers of the global dance brand hailed it as a fresh move that would breathe new life into a night that is one of the most established on the Ibiza calendar. Across the 2018 season, Cream has garnered an impressive lineup of artists for its first season at Hï including Hardwell, Steve Angello, Afrojack and Diplo.
A Night with the Artists of Cream Ibiza
OneEDM went along to check out Cream’s stellar line up as B Jones, Diego Miranda, Hardwell, Diplo and Sean Hughes took charge of the Theatre, while Jonas Blue and Jerome Price brought the vibes to the Club.
Arriving shortly after opening, B Jones was warming up for the night of Cream Ibiza faithfully with her infectious energy and passion for house music. Having supported Kygo last season during his residency at Ushuaïa Ibiza, B Jones now finds her home at Hï as a resident artist among the Cream Ibiza line up every Sunday.
Her experience on the island is not limited to just two seasons, having performed at many legendary island venues including Cafe Mambo, Blue Marlin, and Privilege.
The former world number one ranking DJ, Hardwell, still commands a crowd and is still, most definitely, the king of Big Room house-music. The crowds packed into the venue shortly after one o’clock in the morning to attend his performance.
Hardwell’s set was filled with popular tracks, such as Martin Garrix’s “Animals”, The Chainsmokers’ “Something Just Like This”, and Axwell /\ Ingrosso’s “More Than You Know”.
Hardwell’s set was filled with emotional moments. For example, when “Levels” by Avicii came pouring from the speakers, the crowd fondly remembered one of the industry’s latest and greatest artists. The Dutchman, Hardwell, also played out one of his latest releases entitled “Big Room Never Dies”. This track is a collaboration with fellow Dutch producers Blasterjaxx. Have a listen to it from the video below.
Hardwell ended his set with a stunning version of the track called “Zombie” by the legendary Irish band: The Cranberries. It was a touching tribute to the band as its lead singer Dolores O’Riordan tragically passed away earlier this year. Listen to the track from the video below.
The American producer Diplo made a rare appearance in the Ibiza neighborhood Playa d’en Bossa, home to Cream Ibiza. Diplo’s set was in extreme contrast to Hardwell’s earlier performance. However, it was possibly one of the most unusual sets.
Fans were surprised with music from the Spice Girls, Sam Smith, Valentino Khan, and Beyonce. The DJ took such sounds to compose an unforgettable set. Diplo also dropped some of his iconic tracks of recent times, such as “Lean On” and “Be Right Here”.
British producer, Jonas Blue, performed an outstanding set as part of his weekly Electronic Nature party. The Brit Award nominee’s skyrocketing career is fuelled further along with his Cream Ibiza residency. Jonas Blue burst onto the music scene in 2016 with his reboot of Tracy Chapman’s track entitled “Fast Cars”.
Since then, his music has amassed over three-billion streams and 21 million individual sales in just two short years. His latest track “Rise” is a beautiful and mellow pop ballad featuring Jack & Jack. “Rise” is available for streaming and download now.
In the coming weeks, fans can expect to see Hardwell, Jonas Blue, Michael Calfan and Steve Angello to take center-stage at Cream Ibiza. Tickets available here.
