There's been a lot of fuss on the ol’ gay scene recently that there hasn’t been anything new for a while to excite them. To a certain point, we reckon that’s true. Yet as much as we complain about a lack of variety, those same people who have a moan rarely support anything new and hate it when you break from the status quo. A catch 22, no? There’s no doubt about it, British people are so hard to please.
And then along came SuperMartXé, the Spanish super club sensation. It seemed like every one we knew and their mon- key’s uncle was going! In just a short couple of years SuperMartXé has redrawn the gay map in Spain and reinvigorated the homo club scene in Ibiza. And now, it’s London’s turn.
Yes, it’s in Elephant & Castle, home of the big pink elephant shopping centre, but on the corner of one its many roundabouts sits the Coronet, an old converted theatre venue that perfectly suited SuperMartXé’s stage-show style. Our arrival at the club was admittedly not ideal. The crowds outside grumbled as they waited to get in and then once we were inside, the outside coat check was full and the upstairs reached capacity not long after. The place was well and truly packed, however, with the hottest guys around.
So, with open minds, we slung our coats in the corner to give it a second chance. At 1.30am the massive curtains on the stage parted to reveal a huge stage set-up featuring a tiered platform for dancers and a catwalk that protruded out into the crowd. No expense was spared: lights, lasers, costume changes, trannies, muscle boys and everything but the kitchen sink dominated the stage ‘til the lights came on at the end. Rebeka Brown gave us three sets of songs, from a cover of Katy Perry’s ‘I Kissed A Girl’ to her wicked new hit ‘Real Things’.
A surprise PA came from Sweden’s very own gorgeous resident Londoner, Therese, with classic hit ‘Time’ performed over ‘Sweet Dreams’ and mixed into ‘Sundays At Heaven’ and the new Steve Pitron/Max Sanna- produced track, ‘Bodyswerve’. The crowd screamed with every musical high as DJs Juanjo Martin, Steve Pitron and D’Johnny each delivered killer sets. By the end of it all, we left impressed and certainly wanting more!
Ibiza’s latest success story and most talked about party of the island this summer, is launching in London this month.

Direct from their summer residency at no other than ‘the biggest club in the world’ Privilege Ibiza, this new Madrid-born party brand, SuperMartXé, described as ‘glamorous, stylish and exuberant’ by DJ Mag Ibiza, takes stage in the most lavishly underused venue in South London.
The red carpet rolls out on the 29th of November promising an impressive night of glamour, diversity, and an engaging production equal to that of Ibiza nightclubs.
