4 parties in Dubai this week
A lot has happened since my last takeover. I’ve started up my 90s hip-hop event, Because We Can, again for this season. This time at Cymatics in The H Hotel and the first night was all about Jay Z vs Nas. It was sweaty and a lot of fun!
I’ve also been running my weekly event Neo Soul Waves on Wednesdays at Brunswick Sports Club. I dedicate the first hour of the night to one neo soul album. So far I’ve played albums by Erykah Badu, Common, The Roots and Jill Scott – I’m keeping next week’s a surprise, so come on down!
I’m also launching a new party at the beginning of December called Let’s Funk, which is basically soul and funk karaoke and will be at the new karaoke hotspot Lucky Voice at the Grand Millennium Hotel in Tecom. Expect to hear sounds by Sly and the Family Stone, Betty Davis, James Brown and an added Motown feel to the night. I’m really excited about the venue and the funkalicious music.
So that’s me for now. It’s going to be a packed few weeks. Enjoy!

I know, I know. This is not a party, not even close. But the hotel has an incredible offer this month and I just had to include it. If you fancy easing into your weekend, you get pool access, a 60-minute spa treatment and an authentic Turkish meal in Lalezer restaurant for AED520.

Cuts Above presents The Sand City Social
A sunshine drenched all day party every Saturday that offers up a high-in-the-sky laid back space with a cool garden, wheelbarrows and bean bags and international DJ names serving up some banging beats. Love.
