Roberto Rodriguez preview

No, not that one - the Finnish house DJ at 360

If you’re wondering where you’ve heard the name Roberto Rodriguez before, we’re sorry to say you’re probably not thinking of this guy. You’re probably thinking of the other Roberto Rodriguez – the infamous Hollywood director behind Desperado and Sin City who’s best mates with Quentin Tarantino. The Rodriguez playing 360° couldn’t be further from his namesake; rather than the heatwave plains of Texas, he grew up in Finland (with a name like that, we know). His own CV boasts a list of releases on labels including Compost, 2020Vision, Freerange and Delusions of Grandeur, while his remix work includes artists such as Yoko Ono, Tigerstripes, Jay Shepheard, the Timewriter and Crazy P. Expect danceable but not trashy, funk-flavoured old-school house.

Free (guestlist). 4pm-2am, Friday March 23. 360°, Jumeirah Beach Hotel (04 406 8999).
