Fans of the underground will be flocking down to Al Ghantoot to catch one of the most respected names on the scene. Bosnian-born, Hamburg-raised Solomun has been a pioneer in both the studio and behind the decks, with his labels Diynamic and 2DIY4 helping to set the template for the genre over the last decade. His Diynamic Radio Show is also broadcast to over 30 countries – so you should know exactly what you’ll be getting.

Decibel with Alex Bau
Decibel’s final event for the 2016/17 season marks a pretty special event as they welcome German DJ, producer and label boss Alex Bau to Media One Hotel. His Credo label is currently celebrating its ten-year anniversary and it continues to harness important names in the Euro techno scene – Vloyd, Dirty Basscore, Nastia Reigel and Klaudia Gawlas. In short, expect to hear a mix of classic dance music and some underground tunes when Bau shifts from one record to another. We say record because he’s one of the view DJs that still use vinyl records in his set.
When: Thursday, May 11, 10pm-3am
Where: On42, Media One Hotel
