UK garage legends headline award-winning urban night
Heartless Crew lead the line as No.1 Fridays returns to Dubai
Legends of the UK garage music scene, Heartless Crew, are coming to town, headlining at XL Dubai this Friday July 14.
At the height of their powers, the UK trio were up there with So Solid Crew, Craig David, Ms Dynamite and DJ EZ when UK garage was all the rage. The band hit the UK top ten with 2002’s Heartless Theme and a top 20 album with Crisp Biscuit Vol 1 in the same year. This Friday, Heartless Crew will be headlining at XL Dubai’s recently relaunched urban night No. 1 Fridays.
The band split briefly back in 2009, shortly after their last appearance in Dubai, but the trio has reunited and back on the touring circuit following previous sold out shows across venues in the UK, Aya Napa and Jamaica.
Expect a night of uplifting, energetic dance music, with the band heavily influenced by the ’90s sounds of jungle and drum’n’bass, plus early Jamaican sound system culture.
Combine big tunes from a classic garage act with a club night that has been repeatedly crowned Best Urban Night by Time Out Dubai, and you’re on to a winner. Dhs100. Fri Jul 14, 9pm-3am. XL Dubai, Habtoor Grand Hotel, Dubai Marina (050 738 1388).
