Since 2016, Urban Soul Orchestra have been entertaining sell out crowds at Classic Ibiza, produced by Revival Productions. Every year sees the show return to stunning locations and beautiful National Trust properties, touring the UK throughout Summer.
Featuring a fabulous chill out set, pumping dance set and exhilarating DJ set from the sensational DJ Goldierocks, Stephen Hussey conducts the Urban Soul Orchestra in an evening of iconic and classic Ibiza sounds, brought to life live on stage.
After meeting on a super yacht where they were performing during the Monaco Grand Prix, USO Musical Director Stephen Hussey and DJ Goldierocks began planning a concept of a DJ playing with a full, live orchestra. In mid 2015 USO were approached by Revival Productions to work with them to expand the already reputable Blickling Prom to include a night of Classic Ibiza tunes consisting of live 32-Piece orchestra and DJ. Stephen completed all of the arrangements for the show, in total arranging and producing 28 new pieces.
The set list for the show consisted of songs by artists that we have originally worked with and arranged strings for such as Octave One's Blackwater, Nightmares On Wax Les Nuits and Ibiza classic hits including Robert Miles's Children. Also featured in the set was Faithless Insomnia and chart hits from the White Isle by the likes of David Guetta, Clean Bandit and Calvin Harris.
Every year the set list is kept fresh with new additions including jam-packed medleys, one of which is voted for by the public through a Facebook competition earlier in the year. The winning tracks combine to create a new megamix each year, under titles such as Old-Skool, Club Classics and Bangers & Anthems Megamix.
The first half of the show sees the chill out set, setting the scene whilst the audience picnic in the grounds of some of the most beautiful stately homes in the UK. As the sun goes down the tempo increases and DJ Goldierocks keeps everyone on their feet, energising the crowd in the interval with current chart hits from the party island. The orchestra then return for the dance set as the audience swamp the dance floor, partying into the night.
In true Ibiza style once the sun goes down the lights come up and the night also features a live lazer show with projections dancing over the crowd and along the stately home skylines. A few surprise additions to the performance over the years have included epic instrumental solos, DJ & Percussion battles, duelling LED Twin Violins, choreographed dance moves and electrifying solos from the conductor himself.
In 2017 to coincide with the UK tour, Urban Soul Orchestra released their first album, Classic Ibiza, which features iconic club anthems and chill-out classics as experienced at the shows.
