Dubai’s finest purveyors of danceable house have assembled a monster bill of the city’s top DJs to bid adieu to our most iconic dancefloor for summer. The Audio Tonic team has a knack for spotting (and flying over) global talent on the rise, but we’re glad to see the sense of community that has kept things local here.
Spinning on the day will be (deep breath): Mr Mr (pictured), Raxon, Mark Pickup, Vas Floyd, Rich Showell, Rich Round, Julian Jinx, JC, Mostyn Betamax and Andy Buchan. Each playing for an hour apiece, the bill presents a fascinating snapshot of the local house scene today and, best of all, they’ll be pulling out all the stops to impress one another. For fans it’s a chance to say one last goodbye to their favourite decksmiths ahead of the summer wind-down; for newbies it’s a chance to get acquainted with many of the scene’s main players in a single afternoon.
