Outstanding Contribution

Mike Bufton

The man behind audio tonic, the longest-running weekly house night in the Middle East (which comes to a final showdown at 360° on Friday May 20) has been a vital part of the music and clubbing scene in the UAE over the past ten years. As founder of audio tonic, he has been responsible for bringing some of the biggest underground house names to the city and helped make DJs including Raxon household names. As a DJ, he’s known as Mr Mr and has played at much-loved Dubai institutions Trilogy (now Pacha Ibiza Dubai) and has entertained celebrities including Michael Schumacher at The Abu Dhabi Formula One. His weekly Radio 1 show has entertained listeners from across the city, with his upfront house beats, and his work on albums such as Ma’ana Volume 2 has been applauded by his peers and the industry.
