INTERVIEW: DJ Secondcity on Dubai, career highlights and more!
360°, Jumeirah Beach Hotel’s secluded and exclusive venue at the end of the pier – is celebrating its 13th birthday on Thursday November 9. That’s thirteen years of top quality parties, fantastic brunches with perfect sunset views and, of course, world class DJs. To celebrate the big day, 360° is flying in chart-topping DJ Secondcity for a special night.
We caught up with the “I Wanna Feel” star ahead of his turn at the iconic club.
This isn’t your first time playing Dubai – what do you like most about performing here?
The weather is amazing all year round, so most of the parties are outdoors and everyone is on such a good vibe too. It makes a nice change from always playing inside clubs.
How do the crowds differ in Dubai to the other places you’ve played?
This is only my second time playing here so it will nice to start learning more about the crowds out here, but so far I think there is always such a good energy out here.
What can party-goers expect from your set?
I have finished a lot of new music recently that will be coming out over the next couple of months, so it will fun to test some of them out at 360°.
What’s been your career highlight of 2017?
Reaching a #2 chart position on the whole Beatport with my record "Kwelanga" a few months ago. It’s something that means a lot to me, so I was very happy to see the support and love around it.
If you wasn’t a DJ and producer what would you be?
Something that involved sharks or an underwater photographer.
If you could be known for one track from history, what would it be and why?
The 1999 house hit, “To Be in Love” by Masters at Work. The record, and generally anything they’ve made, is what got me into house music in the first place - they are unreal.
What’s next for you this year and beyond?
I have lots of new music coming out, a remix on Circus, and more tunes coming on labels such as Sola and Toolroom. I also have others that I can't talk about yet, but I’m very excited to share the records with everyone soon.
