On Wednesday, March 15, Ultra changed its profile picture and updated its website with a mysterious graphic, asking intrigued followers to sign up by email for an undisclosed purpose. That purpose has now been revealed: the institution’s underground-oriented brand, Resistance, has announced a full takeover of Ibiza’s privilege club every Tuesday from July 25 to September 12.
The most momentous aspect of this announcement is Resistance’s exclusive residency booked for the weekly affair -the legendary duo of Sasha and John Digweed. After a surprise reunion in Spring of 2016, the two have been booking an increasing amount of festival gigs together, including headliner slots on the Resistance tour and at both Ultra and EDC.
The duo’s forthcoming at Ibiza marks the first time the two have held a club residency since their fabled Twilo years in New York which ended in 2001.
Of their reunion in Ibiza and working with Resistance in general, John Digweed has stated the following:
“RESISTANCE has been making massive inroads around the World with their forward thinking lineups, high quality sound and next level productions. To be a part of their first residency in Ibiza is a huge honor and something I am excited to be part of.
The fact that they have chosen the biggest club in Ibiza shows they are intent on making a big noise on the island right from the start. There is no better feeling than playing to a massive room full of people throbbing in unison to your set. Really looking forward to playing alongside Sasha and a host of world class DJs on this night.”
