Returning to Ibiza during the summer of 1987, Oakenfold (Paul Oakenfold) rented a villa where he hosted a number of his DJ (disc jockey) friends, including Danny Rampling, Johnny Walker, and Nicky Holloway. Returning to London after the summer, Oakenfold (Paul Oakenfold) reintroduced the Balearic style at a South London nightspot (nightclub) called the Project Club. The club initially attracted those who had visited Ibiza and who were familiar with the Balearic concept. Fueled by their use of Ecstasy (Methylenedioxymethamphetamine) and an emerging fashion style based on baggy clothes and bright colors, these Ibiza veterans were responsible for propagating the Balearic subculture within the evolving UK rave scene. In 1988, Oakenfold (Paul Oakenfold) established a second outlet for Balearic Beat, a Monday night event called Spectrum, which is credited with exposing the Balearic concept to a wider audience.
