If you've been living in the UAE for any amount of time you've probably heard of Abu Dhabi's Boogie Box and Dubai's Analogue Room.
But, if for some reason you're unaware of these two legendary club nights, you should probably keep it to yourself and nod along in agreement anyway.
For years now, Boogie Box has been putting on brilliant house and techno nights here in the capital, with a string of top-class international guest DJs lining up alongside the brilliant residents.
And up the road in Dubai, Analogue Room has been doing pretty much the same thing.
Now, the two are coming together for the first edition of 'Boogie Box presents', which will see different local nights, DJs and promoters hitting the capital on the third Thursday of every month.
First up is Analgogue Room residents Siamak Amidi (also co-founder) and MAAT on Thursday, June 20.
Siamak has brought talent such as Ben UFO, A Guy Called Gerald, Kevin Saunderson, and Roman Flugel to his club event and, as a producer, has released on labels such as Rawax, Indigenous Electronic, and Blue Orb Recordings. He runs his own record label Volt Music- a vinyl only project focused on productions from "all four corners of electronic music“.
The warm up comes from Italian Mattia Stragapede, aka MAAT, who makes his Boogie Box debut.
Get yourself down to ANNEX on Thursday for the great music. YOu'll have to reserve a spot on the guest list in advance.
Free (but book in advance). Thu Jun 20, 10pm-4am. ANNEX, The Abu Dhabi EDITION, Al Bateen, email@example.com.
