BMI UAE HAPPENINGS

November 4: BMI UAE presents Used + Abused with Loco Dice and Caleb Calloway. It’s time for Tribal House to take centre stage as the 10-year DC10 veteran, Loco Dice, brings the unique heart-thumping genre to the UAE shores. Loco Dice, famous for tracks like Menina Brasiliera, and Seeing Through Shadows, takes you on a cinematic journey through his North African and Middle Eastern folkloric musical influences. He’ll be joined by Caleb Calloway on that night, a DJ rooted from the tropical sounds of his native country Puerto Rico and influenced by the melting pot of music he encountered in Chicago, Texas, and New York. After having opened up for Loco Dice, Calloway sparked the interest of talent booker Louis Diaz from Club Space Miami. He was then presented with the amazing opportunity to tour with Loco Dice and become his supporting act. Now you have the chance to catch both artists and their infectious sounds at BMI UAE.

November 11: Jackmaster will take to the decks along with Joseph Capriati. “I don’t think about music in terms of genre, I think about it in terms of energy levels,” he says – and as his star has risen over the past few years, this has been on perfect display at parties in places like Glasgow, Berlin and New York, and superclubs such as Berghain and Fabric to legendary underground warehouse parties. Now recognised as one of the principal profiles in techno, Joseph Capriati has established a reputation as a universally popular and in-demand talent. A naturally charismatic DJ with a back catalogue of standout productions, Joseph is an instinctive performer with a genuine enthusiasm for entertaining.

November 18: Cocoon makes a return with Illario Alicante and Markus Fix on Friday. Ilario’s journey began with his regional DJ community, resulting in a long-running residency with Pachamama Club. After the success of his first hit track “Vacaciones En Chile” (Tenax Recordings), Ilario had an increasing number of invitations from clubs around Europe, further honing his DJ’s ear and fine-tuning his unique production sound. Markus Fix had a notable residency at U60311 where he was left free reign to his musical passion. He has played with top Djs like Tiefschwarz, Dominik Eulberg, Loco Dice, Tobi Neumann, Ewan Pearson and Martin Landsky amongst others. ✤

Party hard on F1 Weekend!

Taking the meaning of lit to a whole new level, Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE has something special planned for F1 weekend; a huge Circoloco party and one of the venue’s most successful Saturday brunches, the Spiritual Brunch. The last weekend of the month presents the popular Circoloco party with Jamie Jones, Kerri Chandler and Art Department. The beginnings of Circoloco started at DC10 back in Ibiza 1999. The now-famous night shaped modern club culture and the Crazy Clown face went on to travel around the world as a beacon of the party ethos of Circoloco, becoming a symbol for the underground spirit of dance music culture.

Making a return to Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE on Friday 25th November, Circoloco brings along Jamie Jones, who is renowned for his cross genre band, Hot Natured; his ground-breaking label, Hot Creations; and his world renowned event series, Paradise. In less than a decade, he has catapulted himself to stardom by shattering genres and breaking out of the confines of minimal techno.

Kerri Chandler’s influences can be traced back to New Jersey growing up in a family of jazz musicians. His father, a respected deejay, provided Kerri with a rich background in the origins of soul, disco and the New York Underground Sound (known also as Garage music). The future is very bright for Kerri who is now signing and releasing productions through his new record label imprints: Max Trax, Grei Matter and Lost Tribes of Ibadan.

Last but not least, the returning Art Department has transcended scenes and broken down walls as underground artists as few others have, garnering accolades including number one track of the year at the Beatport Awards in 2011. They have been installed as Circoloco residents at arguably the most revered club on earth – DC10; upon request have taken their immersive live show to esteemed nightclubs like Fabric and Panorama Bar and have been invited to perform at trendsetting international events.

Art Department

On Saturday 26th November, the last brunch of the season welcomes Schooly and Dubai electronic music staple, Charl Chaka.With music in his blood and funk in his soul, he has championed a distinct deep, funky jackin’ house sound and to this day is credited as being the first DJ to introduce this sound to Dubai. He will be joined by Schooly’s soulful tunes, another Dubai favourite from Radio 1.
