The Lowdown
Event: Ill Communications with Ewan Pearson
When: Thursday January 17
Where: N’Dulge, Atlantis The Palm

House night iLL Communications at N’Dulge continued a winning streak with another top international act hitting the decks on a Thursday night to fire up the weekend. This time, the music came from Brit-born, Berlin-based DJ and producer, Ewan Pearson. Pearson has been making records since 1995 and this master remixer has worked with the likes of The Rapture, Royksopp, and Moby. Support came from HOOLZ, JC and Safe, who warmed up a crowd that then thrived on Pearson’s rhythmic stylings. Pearson may have been plagued with ‘Gangnam Style’ requests throughout his sets (do we believe him, could that have happened, even in Dubai?), but despite that the night was a hit all round.
