SUMTHING SPE­CIAL

Infusion Magazine - - THE LAST TIME DJ KOZE -

Cult house night Plus Mi­nus are back in ac­tion this sea­son with a string of monthly par­ties at Level 41, push­ing the best in for­ward think­ing live elec­tronic mu­sic, with Diy­namic’s David Au­gust first up. We caught up with Adrian Grech and Karim Jivraj of Blitz Pro­duc­tions ahead of their March 6 opener

There’s so much com­pe­ti­tion now in the club scene, how are you look­ing to stand out?

We al­ways strive to cre­ate spe­cial en­vi­ron­ments for our events and are very fo­cused on the qual­ity of our artist bookings and crowd. We have been fo­cused on bring­ing live acts as there are not many oth­ers that are bring­ing them and there is a big de­mand for this very niche mar­ket. There is so much go­ing on within the genre at the mo­ment that we are just fo­cused on our own core val­ues and ac­com­plish­ing what we know best. We do not com­pro­mise on our pro­duc­tion qual­ity at all and we strive to de­liver good qual­ity events that leave our crowd want­ing more and talk­ing about it for days

af­ter.

What can you tell us about David Au­gust, have you seen him be­fore? And

how live is it?

We have been try­ing to book David for al­most a year

now. We

saw him in Ibiza in 2013 at Diy­namic Neon Nights at Sankeys and again in Sonar in 2014 at the Diy­namic Show­case in Teatre Prin­ci­pal where his live sets blew our minds. We knew we had to bring him and at only 22 years only, this is just the start of a very promis­ing ca­reer. His setup in­volves 1 key­board, 1 syn­the­siser and a lot of other gear so get ready for a very spe­cial live set from him!

What do you like about Level 41 as a venue?

It’s a blank can­vas and a raw space for us to work with. This en­ables us for us to put our own sig­na­ture on the venue and project our own ideas in a way that we can’t in a typ­i­cal night­club. We are able to cre­ate a dif­fer­ent en­vi­ron­ment, some­thing more down to earth where peo­ple can come and be them­selves and ex­press them­selves in the way that they want to.

And who’s lined up for this sea­son?

We can’t tell you as yet but we have some more great live acts to come as well as a few artists that have never been here be­fore.

And what can live mu­sic give you that DJs can’t?

What’s nice about live acts is the ver­sa­til­ity that the artist has. The crowd also re­act dif­fer­ently to a live act – you hear a track that you think you know but it’s not quite the same and never will be… It will al­ways be a lit­tle dif­fer­ent and the artist can use that to play with the crowd! Plus Mi­nus feat. David Au­gust, Fri­day March 6, Level 41,

8.30pm-3am, Dhs120 in ad­vance, Dhs150 on the door.

We have a pair of tick­ets to give away, head to in­fu­sion.ae
