Grandmaster Flash, one of the most iconic names in music, is the headline act at the Time Out Dubai Nightlife Awards after-party, held this year at Cavalli Club.
Always a hugely popular party, the official post-awards shindig is a celebration of the past 12 months in one of the world's best nightlife scenes. It comes hot on the heels of the most coveted awards nights for Dubai party people.
The awards themselves, the seventh of their kind, is the culmination of a year in which the Time Out Dubai team has been hard at work, visiting the city’s hundreds of bars and clubs, catching great gigs, DJ sets and all the hilarious comedians that have graced the city.
Fitting, then, that a musical pioneer is on board to help with the party. The Barbados-born, Bronx-bred DJ has been tearing the scene up since the ’70s and has been a true trailblazer for mix-masters and scratch sentinels ever since.
Along with the Furious Five, he bridged the gap between underground rap parties and the mainstream, with anthemic hit The Message at the fore. Now 58, the DJ, aka Joseph Saddler, is as much a force to be reckoned with as ever.
