You remember The Recipe, right? They’re Dubai’s most prolific – and mind-bendingly large – hip-hop outfit. They’ve been a little quiet so far this year but now they’re coming back into their own, with a bunch of mixtapes, albums and performances lined up over the coming months.
The first of these is happening this week, with a performance by the collective – or some of them, at least – at Elegante. Taking to the mic on the night will be Perfect Storm (who also has a mixtape coming out soon), Swerte, Jabbar and Kaz Money (he was named Time Out’s ‘best hip-hop performer’ in 2008). Human beatbox Hirabeat and DJ Flash B, meanwhile, will provide the beats. They’re a fun crew with a tonne of talent – we recommend checking them out. Also playing on the night is DJ Majestic, who’ll be cranking out urban tunes.
The Recipe play Delicious at Elegante, May 12, Dhs100.
