Time Out Dubai staff
1 How is Dubai’s party scene different to that of Ibiza, Miami or Berlin? I’ve been here four times. It’s real good energy; people party and people are really into hip-hop.
2 Where’s your favourite spot in Dubai? One of my boys works at Catch Dubai – so last time we were here, they gave us a six-course meal and it was amazing. Best food I’ve had.
3 Do you ever take song requests when you’re DJing? Only if a high roller came to the club and asked me to play a song, then cool, yeah. If someone said, “Can you please play a song by Guns N’ Roses?”, I’ll be like, “No, boo boo.”
4 Do you listen to your own music? Once my music is out, I don’t like to hear it anymore. When I’m at a club and the DJ keeps playing all my songs, I’m like bro, just play your set, do your thing. You don’t need to brush my ego.
5 When can we see you without your sunglasses? When I don’t want to be recognised. I only take them off when I don’t want anyone to know me.
