Two well known Pacha DJ’s, on route to Ibiza to play at the Pure Pacha party, had a lucky escape, when their small jet had to make an emergency landing near Paris early this morning. Both Martin Solveig and Laidback Luke, were passengers on the jet, when it suddenly De-pressurised at 40,000 ft. The jet desended a terrifying 30,000 ft, before the Captain could safely control the jet, to make an emergency landing near Paris. Martin Solveig tweeted in the early hours of this morning “Lost a door joint…cabin depressurized… pilot had to make the plane go down from 40k feet to 10k feet in a couple minutes. We obviously won’t make it to @pacha. We’re sorry but actually happy we’re alive and in good shape”
Pacha rising star, seventeen year old DJ, Danny Wade, covered for the two missing superstars with an incredible 4 hour set that had the club jumping all night. The unfortunate problems for Solveig and Laidback presented a life changing opportunity for Danny Wade – one which he took on with assurance and aplomb, holding the main floor of the worlds most famous club, Pacha Ibiza. When contacted by the blog, Pacha’s musical director Steve Hulme, had this to say about the incident ” It could have been a disaster but the pilot was a hero. We are just so relived that Martin and Laidback are safe. Last night we put notices up that Martin and Luke were stranded and not able to show – we informed all our sold out tables in the VIP and nobody elected to leave – at 7am Danny Wade was receiving something like a standing ovation, the room still packed, lights up, everybody stamping and chanting for “one more tune”. It was very emotional for everybody, even the security staff giving the young lad a “lazer beam salute” with their “powerful green lazer pointer pens”, incredible…”.
