After the success of Jade’s first visit to Sanctuary back in February, the DJ returned to Atlantis bringing with him a little bit of The Basement – Beirut’s renowned underground club. Formerly the frontman of rock band The Blend (the first band in the region to be signed by EMI, no less), Jade is not your average DJ, and his eclectic influences were certainly evident in his set last Thursday night. The dancefloor started to fill up around about midnight and Jade stepped up to the turntables an hour later to play house tunes and intelligent remixes of current hits, which in turn were blended with underground sounds and some old bombs as well. Bring on his next visit.
