Carl Cox is refusing to give up on re-opening Space Ibiza!I n his interview with Mixmag, Cox says about Space Ibiza.
It was the biggest part of my career and my life. I've been going to Ibiza consistently since 1985, I haven't missed a year DJing and I quite appreciate the island itself.
I have an opportunity to support the island, be a part of it and to [deliver] the essence of what people enjoy from the island. For that to now be removed [from Ibiza], and never to restore, It's an extreme pill to swallow.
The club was never bound to close, in light of the fact that nobody wounded someone or there was anything but a major battle – every one of these situations why clubs shut down. There's a reason behind why the entryways were shut however it was a long way from that.
We only sort of proceed onward from it and attempt to do as well as can be expected to keep the inheritance of Space's banner flying and take advantage of each open door that I've been given.
Are there plans to bring back Space?
The biggest problem we have, more than anything in the sense of trying to bring that club back onto the island, is that the government are not issuing any licenses to clubs or bars, or new additional licenses. If we do get an opportunity to get that license, at that point I will say 100 percent that the club's returning. There are enough clubs on the island, of course there are, but Space and the way it was taken away, it was never finished.
