Anyone who has been to OFF Week in recent years will know that some of the best parties are put on by Spanish promoters Creaductions. In 2018 they return for four more parties, which offer classy headliners from the worlds of house and techno.
All Creaductions parties will once again will be held at Barcelona’s stunning open air bull ring, La Monumental. Built in 1914, the venue features grandiose architecture, which has to be seen to be believed. If you are venturing to Barcelona to break away from the normal club environs, then you have to visit La Monumental at least once. This is what OFF Week is all about.
Creaductions’ final party on Sunday June 17 is yet to be announced, but here is the low down on the first three events.
Dimensions, Thursday June 14
The opening event will take some beating. In association with Croatian festival Dimensions and features Dimensions Soundsystem, Detroit legend Theo Parrish, whose voodooistic house sounds are utterly unique. Joining them are New Jersey deep house don Kerri Chandler, Hunee and Dekmantel’s balmy house artist Palms Trax.
Sasha & John Digweed, Friday June 15
You can never go wrong when Sasha & Digweed are playing back to back. The long time musical sparring partners still have a special magic in the booth and will be joined by Saved label boss Nic Fanciulli and No. 19’s Art Department, a back to back from Anja Schneider and Uner, plus Chelina Manuhuttu.
ANTS, Saturday June 16
Ushuaia stalwarts ANTS leave their mound to make an OFF Week debut. Circoloco resident and This And That founder Davide Squillace play back to back with Hï Ibiza resident Andrea Oliva. Next to them, unashamed party starter Skream plays back to back with Richy Ahmed. VIVa label boss Steve Lawler and Francisco Allendes combine their powers to complete this one.
