This week in clubland: 50 Cent, Jeremy Orlander and Steve Bugg
A look at which DJs are playing this weekend across the clubs in Abu Dhabi and Dubai
The US rapper may not have had a hit in almost a decade, but the success of TV crime drama Power (which he produced, available for streaming on Starz Play), his hilarious social-media accounts and string of classic hits, such as In Da Club and Candy Shop, allows the 43-year-old to be an evergreen club performer.
Friday at Base, Dubai Design District, from 10pm. Call 055 313 4999 for reservations
The US-Swedish DJ will be celebrating a decade of club work this year, a time that saw him rise through the progressive house scene, release 2017 hit Last Dance and land a residency at renowned Los Angeles dance spot Sound Nightclub.
Thursday at Soho Garden, Meydan, Dubai, from 10pm. For reservations, call 052 388 8849 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The German DJ has been on the quest for the perfect groove since 1993. That path allowed him to not follow the trance and hard-dance scenes of the 90s, and instead emerge with a fresh sound merging various styles, such as deep and acid house. Bug’s vibrant and sensuous musical vibe has seen him remain a DJ in demand, with sets at the Miami Winter Music Conference, German Festival Fusion and a run of epic club appearances across the Mediterranean in the summer.
Friday at Blue Marlin, Golden Tulip Al Jazira Hotel and Resort, Ghantoot, doors open at 2pm. For reservations, contact 056 113 3400 or email email@example.com
