DRUM AND BASS DUBAI FEAT. NICKY BLACK­MAR­KET @ THE BASE­MENT

Infusion Magazine - - BACK LOOKING -

Those in the know about drum’n’bass were treated to an old school ex­trav­a­ganza at Base­ment when they hosted Nicky Black­mar­ket, and leg­endary MCs, Shabba D and Sk­ibadee. Rem­i­nis­cent of the early 2000s, Nicky Black­mar­ket con­sis­tently rolled out clas­sics of the glory days of jun­gle and DnB; how­ever, the night was all about the MCs, and the SAS were re­lent­less in lay­ing down tight, en­ergy filled vo­cals. Still able to give lyrics in dou­ble time and flow to­gether seam­lessly, Shabba and Sk­iba showed us what true DnB MCing is all about, an el­e­ment that has been miss­ing from most mod­ern DnB par­ties ( at least in Dubai). Sup­port from Woo­dle’s 3 hour set filled with clas­sics also com­pli­mented the night well, en­sur­ing a joy­ous evening for all the ravers.
