What makes for a Lucky Life?
Well, that’s down to you! Everyone is different & has their own needs & desires, their own unique perspective on the world around us, and their own special dreams & goals. But, when it comes to a Lucky Life party, this is something we can explain & describe with excitement & love because we love what we do.
Last Wednesday, we celebrated the end of our first decade and welcomed in year 11 of this Lucky living we call Life with our annual pre-summer label showcase.
We started out with label boss Ben Fhurst & special guest flying in from Romania, ‘Horatio’, both joining DJ Ryan Platts and the Cirque de la Nuit Ibiza boat party for an incredible afternoon out on the Med. 320 guests on board a double storey party boat, funktion 1 sound system, sunshine & swim stops!! Just our kind of warm up for a big night out at Pacha.
From there, we moved on to Villa Parc in town to host a much smaller, calmer, ‘last of the winter vibe’ bowling session with some special friends. The Chronic Cowboys split across the 3 hours providing a funk fuelled soundtrack, while the the likes of Horatio, Graham Sahara, Audiojack, DJ Baly, GL Solutions & all our closest friends got heavily involved in the lanes for the Lucky Strike bowling competition. Big ups to Jason from the Privadia team for taking the epic 154 win on the night ! We’re still in awe of the 154 !!
Last, but most definitely far from least, we headed on to the legendary Pacha Ibiza with the Lucky Life Music artists.
Our favourite Pacha resident DJ Graham Sahara got the night started off in pure Pacha style before Horatio took to the decks for an extended set, first hour on two decks, and the second hour using four with loops and all sorts of madness chucked in for good measure
It’s early May, so we weren’t expecting thousands in the club, but we were nicely surprised with a great crowd of locals & tourists. From start to finish, the dancefloor was the focus for all at Pacha on this night.
From our Canadian crew that joined us from day into night, Tomi who flew in from Germany just in time for this event, our South African family friends for over 20 years, Kabodah supporting on his night off, Hector Morales popping in to catch Horatio’s set and even 1 of the Chronic Cowboys’ mums, and the others sister, smiling & dancing together all night long. It truly was a Lucky Life family affair.

With Horatio’s 2 hour Pacha take over coming to an end, friend & label boss Ben Fhurst took to the decks & as the photos show, he kept the crowd moving, smiling, dancing non stop, hands in the air, loving their Lucky Life.
His set included the classic “Sugar is Sweeter (Robbie Rivera Mix)”, “Get Down” by Jacky and Low Steppa’s remix of Doom’s Night called “The Redoom” which blew the roof off Pacha.
At 4:30 am the Chronic Cowboys took to the stage with moms, sisters and a crowd of smiling party people all raving in full support from the first track. The boys played another funky, vocal, experimental mix of melodies, acapellas and sound bites the Cowboys have become known for.
I was well impressed to see the club keep us open for an extra half hour past closing time, with everyone who was left at Pacha wrapped around the DJ booth, partying like we were all at home with the Chronic Cowboys, finishing up with two classic tracks, Inner City’s ‘Big Fun’ and the final track put down was the epic ‘Follow Me’ by Aly Us.
Big thanks to Pacha and all the team that help make our Lucky Nights happen!! Cirque de la nuit, Villa Parc bowling & all the special friends & family who flew in to surprise us. How lucky we are!
There are any more lucky life parties to come!! If you’re in ibiza, join us on Wednesday at Sankeys as we raise funds & send love & healing for our man Morris from the GL Solutions crew.
A special thanks also goes to Horatio for flying in for the gig. From Romania, via a mad gig in Berlin, and straight on to these two parties in ibiza. What a legend.
We got to spend some quality time with Horatio this visit, learning more about what an incredible artist, DJ & producer he is and how far & wide across the world his music has reached, being loved & played by some of the best & most influential DJs in the techno & tech house scene. We’ll soon have an in depth interview and feature on this top class Romanian DJ / producer, including 10 of his ‘key realisations’ about the Lucky Life Family while out in ibiza.
Watch this space, and we’ll see you all soon at the next Lucky Life Music adventure.
Join us! #wearelucky
