This summer Dixon returned to Ibiza to curate a new residency at Pacha labelled Transmoderna. Described as an experiment by the iconic club, the Friday night series would deliver an immersive club experience, welcoming guest appearances from some of techno’s finest including DJ Koze, Honey Dijon, Job Jobse, Solomun, HAAi, Tale Of Us, Jennifer Cardini, KiNK (live), Henrik Schwarz (live), Âme, Call Super and Gerd Janson.
Four weeks ago we witnessed John Talabot and Moloko’s Roisin Murphy with the Innervisions boss at the helm. Delivering sets in the centre of Pacha’a main room under industrial installations and hypnotic lighting, John Talabot opened proceedings followed by Murphy with an impressive live vocal performance over a wash of synths and beats. Dixon was easily the highlight of the night though, the venue set up perfectly complementing a dark and progressive set that captivated the 1500 strong crowd.
Transmoderna provides welcome respite from the more mainstream residencies on the island and Dixon curates another four shows to round off the season. Honey Dijon & Jennifer Cardini feature on the 13th, SRVD LIVE & Haai on the 20th, Mano Le Tough & Pional on the 27th with an all night long set billed as the closer on October 4th.
