8 massive parties in Dubai this week



“Twisted techno for twisted people” is the strapline for the Dysfunktion parties, which have recently found a new home at On42 in Media One Hotel. Their first event of the year looks like it will set a high bar for the remainder of 2017. Headlining the night is British techno whizz Whyt Noyz, formerly a duo and now just the performing and producing moniker of David Sidley. Growing up with a drumkit and the sounds of soul and funk from his parents’ record collection, beats have always pounded away in his head – and they initially found a release as a house DJ before techno tightened its grip. Table packages from AED2,500.
