Ibiza's worst kept secret has finally found a guise. Bubbling under, in this case literally in subterranean sea caves and various other secret locations throughout Ibiza, Ryan O´Gorman and Joe Upton have finally found a Home for their unique brand of organised chaos with none other than We Love... at Space. The product of their collective imagination, Vitalik. Vitalik is collaboration with some of London, Ibiza and Italy´s finest party anarchists, boasting Luciano Esse, Ryan O´Gorman, Bones and Geddes as weekly residents, the Redbox at Space was a force to be reckoned with.  Keeping true to their underground roots Vitalik held what was intended to be a secret party in “The Cave” with Buschwacka in August. The resulting party was a true reflection how powerful Ibiza’s grapevine can be. Bushwacka remarked …“I haven’t played records facing a wall since I first started playing in my bedroom! Nowadays I only play up to two hour sets so for me it was great opportunity to express my music and work the crowd, it’s the most amazing place I’ve ever played

Vitalik made an unforgettable closing party at Space with We Love with the help of ElectricLadyland and the Back2Basics crew but it was time to step out of the Redbox one last time and back to Ibiza's very own Fraggle Rock.This time the Vitalik crew were joined by Jo Mills, Manu L, Electra Sound System and Electricsex.  

Joe Upton said  “In August we rocked out the cave with a cheeky little party where Buschwacka blessed us with a seven hour set that had to be heard to be believed. It´s always an honour and gives us a great deal of satisfaction as promoters to be able to give clubbers an experience of this kind. Naturally after such an amazing day and night we had to do it again and when better than the ultimate full moon of the summer ” 

 Bluebox provided what can only be described as a spectacular animate art installation with live VJ performances and advanced audiovisual scapes. A daring risk and a worthy show of support from and established and respected Ibiza Production Company but a calculated risk, Vitalik have been the only promoters to successfully pull off such large-scale events in public where others have failed, why? 

Ryan comments “Ibiza is part of who we are and we have a great love appreciation for the Island. For many people who come to our parties it will be the first time they will see some of Ibiza’s most spectacular natural resources and we believe this gives them a better understanding of the beauty and wonder of the island, people learn to respect this, what we do is free. If you respect the environment and the residents by not polluting with noise or rubbish then you see how tolerant Ibicencos really are of who we are, visitors !” 

Jo Mills quoted “Pulling up to the cave with es vedra to your left and the full moon lighting up the islands and sea was eerily magnificent! You wouldn't imagine it was possible to set up a party in such a remote area but about 30 steps down to sea level and you’re in the most incredible cave. Ryan, Andy and jo (not sure who else) pulled it off with a great crowd to play too, good sound system and visuals until the early hours, (until the police turned up!) definitely one of my highlights of the summer. ” 

The story doesn’t end here; Vitalik will be holding various clandestine events around London this winter. Watch this space, if you know then you´re special...
