The year 2000 saw Ibiza and house music truly come to the forefront.

House music was beginning to become commercially viable, with major labels looking at the next big summer hit. Shows such as Ibiza Uncovered also made The White Isle THE holiday destination for thousands of young Brits.

One of the biggest tunes to embark on the island in 2000 was Basement Jaxx’ incredibly infectious Bingo Bango. The track, released via XL, samples Bolivar’s Merengue and became an instant hit, peaking at No.13 in the charts.
