Groove on the Grass



Open-air festivals seem to have taken hold in Dubai in recent years, with Dubai Sport City’s Picnic Electronik already a winter staple. There’s an argument that Groove on the Grass is the original, though. Season III is about to draw to a close with the last party taking place on May 15 at Emirates Golf Club. On the bill to close us out are Berlin-based Italians Tale of Us and Ukraine’s Woo York.

Tale of Us
Talk about eclectic. The North American born, Italy raised, Berlin-based DJ and production partnership of Karm and Matteo pull together house and techno with a wider pool of influences that range from pop to new wave to disco to ambient, resulting in textured dance music that veers between the crowd-pleasing and the pleasingly abstract.

We love their genre-busting track “Big Sins” with Ryan Crosson.

Woo York
Although originally from Kiev, the duo first made their mark on Glasgow’s Soma Records label and have since developed into globe-trotting megastars. They released their first tracks, remixes Truncate and MRSK alongside their own compositions, which they then followed up with the likes of “Solar Diet”, “Acid Rain” and “Ancient Light” gaining traction with DJs around the world. The pair now manage Planet Rhythm, expanding its roster to include Eduardo De La Calle, Oscar Mulero and Christian Wünsch. It’s live, though, where they really come into their own.

Check out their track “The Valley of Songs”, a throbbing, floating minimalist stunner.
