Vintage UK garage act headlined the all-day beach party

The Lowdown What: No.1 Fridays with Bushkin and Fonty When: Friday March 1 Where: White X Beach Club & Lounge
Two of the three original members of UK garage group Heartless Crew, MC Bushkin and DJ Fonti, returned to Dubai for a daytime set at White X Beach Club & Lounge on the Palm Jumeirah last weekend. Taking partygoers on a nostalgic journey back to the ’90s heyday of garage, the UK duo were on lively form, and their familiar blend of jungle, dancehall, R&B and hip hop proved a resounding hit with the Brit-heavy crowd. If you missed out, fear not, the crew have visited Dubai almost annually in recent years, so it can’t be long before they’ll be back to have clubbers bouncing on the sand again.
