Jamie Jones & Richy Ahmed @ Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE
One of the biggest names on the house market, Jamie Jones is joined by fellow Hot Creations DJ and new Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE ambassador Richy Ahmed for the last night of 2014. We caught up with the latter to find out how the year’s been…
Welcome back to the city, what have been your best NYE's to date?
My best New Year’s Eve to date was probably before I was really professionally DJing about 5 years ago, maybe 6 now in Sydney with loads of my best friends. We just got on a plane, went over there on a whim and my friend was having a big party. I was facing the Sydney Harbour Bridge watching the fireworks in the biggest mansion you’ve ever seen, just out of the blue and it was just something that was completely new to me.
You're always a big draw here – do you feel at home when you play? And is Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE your favourite Dubai venue?
Yeah I do feel at home actually, the crew and the owner always make you feel welcome. They always really know their music and the minute you get there you feel at home. They’re really good promoters and a really good crowd.
What's big in your sets at the moment, what should we look forward to on NYE?
New Year’s Eve is the biggest party of the year and I’m expecting a really big set from myself. I’ve just finished the Essential Mix and I’ve had a lot of gigs all summer so I’m armed to the teeth with records for this night and I’m just gonna give it all that I can.
