Ibiza superclub Space may be forced to close their terrace as part of the island's continuing clampdown on mass market clubbing, according to Mixmag.

"The people in power at the moment are against massive tourism on the island," said Space manager Fritz Pangratz.

"Politicians know that supporting nightlife doesn't get them votes, because of noise, alcohol, accidents and drugs."

In the same issue, Mixmag ran a three page 'true' history on the origins of Ibiza, interviewing the four London lads most frequently credited with launching acid house, Paul Oakenfold, Danny Rampling, Johnny Walker and Nicky Hollloway.

"We were worried about the drugs, I remember us saying 'we mustn't do it every night, we must keep it for special occasions," Nicky Holloway recalled, after the four tried ecstasy.

"So what happened- We did it every night. By the end of the night we were doing two capsules a night."
