Morcheeba at Dubai Opera

If ghost trains and horror films aren’t your thing, then there are mellower ways to spend your evening come October 31. British trip-hop pioneers Morcheeba are heading to Dubai Opera with a medley of old favourites and brilliant new tracks on their setlist.

For 2018, Skye Edwards and Ross Godfrey have reunited as a twosome, and their 10 songs strong album, Blaze Away is what they have to show for it. Think their signature chilled tunes updated with a pop-like touch. 

But for the old-school fans heading to the venue, fear not. Tracks that saw the band rise to fame in the in the 90s, such as Rome Wasn't Built In A Day, Otherwise and The Sea, will boom through the venue, too.

And fans can be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets to the one-off gig with ShortList, too.
As you prepare yourself for Skye’s soulful voice and Ross’s psychedelic guitar, here are the key moments in the band’s three decades to refresh your memory.

As you prepare yourself for Skye’s soulful voice and Ross’s psychedelic guitar, here are the key moments in the band’s three decades to refresh your memory.

The break out years

The original band was comprised of brothers Paul and Ross Godfrey and Skye Edwards.
The siblings are said to have met the singer during a party in the 90s, and soon realised they’d make a pretty sweet trio after chatting away.

They wasted no time in working together, and in 1996 Morcheeba’s debut album "Who Can You Trust?" was released, helping to carve their well-deserved place in the emerging trip-hop genre, with more incredible hit albums to follow.

Singles such as The Sea and Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day became mainstream hits.

The roller coaster years

Bumps came in the road after finding fame, and the talented artists wanted to explore their skills in different ways.
Firstly the brothers split from Skye in 2003 to explore new avenues, releasing an album in 2005 with Daisy Martley’s vocals instead, while the former worked on solo music

The killer comeback

In 2010, the original trio reunited and began working on new music, and Morcheeba’s seventh album Blood Like Lemonade came out in June of that year.

By 2014, Paul decided to leave the band, establishing his own recording studio. But in 2016, their new identity was established as Skye & Ross, and two years later Blaze Away was released, capturing time-old fans and newcomers alike.

And to celebrate the new album, the amazing duo are hitting the road, playing everywhere from festivals in Brazil to debut shows in Cape Town. And for one night only, a gig at Dubai Opera.
