DC10 (pronounced DeeSee Diez) is a nightclub on the island of Ibiza in the Mediterranean. It is located in a converted finca off the end of the airport runway on the South-East side of the island. Located in a former airplane hangar, the covered terrace nightclub holds 1,500 revelers. The club opened in 2000. In its original format, sessions began at 6 am, as Space’s 24-hour Sunday session ended. In 2002, the club’s reputation began to take off. Promoted by Briton Charlie Chester along with its Italian owners, its roster included both European and British DJs such as Danny Tenaglia, Sasha, Steve Lawler and Pete Tong. The club’s reputation grew rapidly along with the resurgence of the popularity of the Minimal Techno genre with many of the club’s residents at the forefront of this, including Tania Vulcano, Luciano, Ricardo Villalobos, Cirillo, Loco Dice, Jose De Divina and later, the Romanian trio Arpiar, Zip, Matthias Tanzmann, Jamie Jones , Clive Henry, Cirillo, Dyed Soundorom, Dan Ghenacia, Sossa, Damian Lazarus.
The club also attracted high profile regular guests such as Richie Hawtin, Josh Wink, Magda and Dinky. At its height, it was arguably responsible for the wider birth of the European minimal techno sound that has become so dominant in the second half of the decade. The club’s popularity also rested on its perceived existence outside the established group of Ibiza ‘superclubs’ . Run by two Italians, it didn’t conform to the huge, polished, purpose-built corporate identities of the larger clubs, and in terms of music and atmosphere was far closer to the warehouse and open-air raves of the acid house era. Originally with a completely uncovered terrace (until it was covered completed in 2006) and spartan appearance, it was the antithesis of many of the rest of the island’s clubs. With planes flying low over the club (its location was barely a kilometre from the end of the airport runway) and clubbers of a more European make-up than bigger venues, it had a hedonistic outlook and attitude.
