Since 2013 Third Eye Crew have been consistently bringing some of the best artists to Dubai and count artists such as No Regular Play, Slow Hands, Joyce Muniz and Fur Coat as close friends of the family and will all perform at Summer Vibes over the course of the season. With the Third Eye Crew excelling in their brand of “pop-up” events and the way in which they are marketed, Summer Vibes have in the past few weeks held stand out parties at their long-time home Tamanya Terrace at the Radisson Blu hotel in Media City as well as branching out to hold their recent party with Magda at the plush Treehouse rooftop at the Taj Hotel, Downtown.
All these parties and international guests are all well and good, but what makes Third Eye Crew so successful and well-loved is their talented, tight knit group of resident DJs’ and this season a diverse group of selectors has been assembled. Having been trusted residents for some time Amy Wells and Jacob Bailey know the Vibes crowd better than anybody and are well equipped to keep up with any international artist that performs at the Vibes rooftop parties. Whether they are opening up or shutting down the dancefloor, Amy and Jacob are equally deft at doing.
A newer edition to the Vibes crew is Egyptian artist Madlou, having supported some of the bigger Vibes guests such as Lake People, Pillowtalk, Atish and more recently Fur Coat. Madlou is also consistently playing further afield and has been confirmed to be returning to ADE as well as dates in USA including 2 confirmed sets at this year’s Burning Man Festival.
Also joining Madlou at this year’s Burning Man Festival is summer season resident, living legend and head honcho of this very publication, none other than Charl Chaka. There is little that Charl hasn’t accomplished in the Dubai clubbing sphere, so you can rest assured that he will bring a touch of soul to whatever line-up he appears on this season.
Another new member to the team of residents is Dubai based Parisian DJ Julien James, an up and coming spinner who has already warmed up for one of the hottest bookings of Night Vibes last season – Sailor & I and will also feature heavily over the coming summer seasons events. Lastly, but by no means leastly is Ejaz, an artist that has since last summer began receiving some serious support from some of biggest names in the game, namely John Digweed amongst others. Ejaz is also one of Dubai’s most in demand DJ’s and can usually be found spinning at the cities best parties as well as guesting around Europe as well as his native India and beyond.
Next up at Summer Vibes is none other than Joyce Muniz on Friday, July 28. For more information go to facebook.com/vibeseries.
