New club nights in Dubai
Jambase goes on the hunt for a replacement house band Discuss this article
We’re not sure what happened over the summer, but it seems as though our favourite club nights were rounded up and shipped out of town in the dead of night. Trilogy has seen the biggest changes, with both its regular nights, Ill Communications and Taboo, axed for good. Instead everything now goes under the one name: Trilogy. Early bookings – Carl Craig last week (August 23) and Sasha next (Thursday September 6) – show promise, but we fear some individuality could be lost without these award-winning nights.
There’s also been an overhaul over at N’Dulge, where Thursday option Access All Areas – which launched in February and brought over Grandmaster Flash and 2ManyDJs – has also bitten the dust. Perhaps the paint was on the wall after Sneaky Sound System were booked for the closing bash in July – then the Aussie dance duo missed their flight. A missing headline act was no way to go out with a bang. Instead the Atlantis super-club is launching new Thursday night Our Own, with early bookings including Kissy Sell Out (September 6) and Steve Lawler (October 4), as well a Russian night on Sundays and a new ladies’ night – called Stunning – on Tuesdays. Thankfully thriving urban night No.1 Fridays is staying put.
Meanwhile, Chi@The Lodge has launched yet another new Friday night, Hangover Fridays, replacing its former Bass & Beats. On the live music front, after just a few months Jambase has parted company with much-hyped band Bull Funk Zoo. The band told us the venue ‘couldn’t afford’ them, although that’s not what the club told us. In the meantime, duo Shero and Ziryab will fill Tuesday to Saturday nights.By Rob Garratt
