Malanga Café is another favorite spot, not only in world-renowned Ibiza, but for all the funk lovers across the globe.

Far from the typical concept of a loud super-club filled with shiny celebrities, bottle service and other usual gimmicks on the island, Malanga offers an intimite space for music fans where everyone, customers and performers, can connect instantly: a DJ or two, a live band or all of them together.

Good vibes and raw energy can be perceived all over the place: if you go to Malanga Café and don´t start dancing right away, you probably won´t last long. Zero pretensions. Indeed, people go to dance to good music there. As simple as that.

After 3 years operating, the bar took good care of its program, recruiting every gatekeeper of the groove around and beyond. Nowadays places like Malanga are tailormade for those soul survivors: heavyweight funk, soul, disco, latin & afro DJs with over 2 decades of experience are their average guests on the decks.

They also host super-solid live bands which are as groovy as you can imagine. And of course, the crowd too: a healthy mix of mature music enthusiasts, spontaneus dancers, club patrons taking a rest from their money-making business and long-term residents looking for real music and real people.

It took a bit to find the right time for a gig there due to my long-term residence in Asia. But it was worth the wait. A long night with good music and friendly people.

Many thanks to Enrique (DJ Bebe) and Juan Soul for their professionality and great work: top DJs, dedicated businessmen and fantastic human beings.

Friday 11th 2018 DJ Zulu @ Migas Mercado Beijing

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inspired by traditional Barcelona food markets, Migas Mercado is a big bustling multi-spaced complex overlooking Beijing’s iconic landmarks.

Occupying a prime spot of the new China World Mall’s top floor, Migas Mercado is bringing Migas’ fun-loving Mediterranean vibes to the CBD. The space is inspired by the famous markets of Barcelona (‘mercado’ is Spanish for ‘market,’ FYI), and is set to feature Migas’ award-winning Spanish gastronomy and mouth-watering cocktails alongside a picture-perfect view of Beijing’s iconic CCTV Headquarters. So whether you’re stopping by for a quick lunch or long, riotous Friday night, grab a drink and enjoy.

 

I had a great time playing at the (in my humble opinion) best music spot in the Beijing’s nightlife.

They have an eclectic program with different music styles every day of the week (except sundays). Mondays and tuesdays are dedicated to current latin social dances like salsa and kizomba. Wednesdays to afro-house, while weekends are open to all sorts of funky rhythms for the dancefloor.

Being a native from Barcelona, I felt like at home at Migas.

Many thanks to María And Ciccio for the hospitality!
