UK GARAGE PIONEERS SUN CITY THROW IT DOWN IN DUBAI
Since 1996, the Sun City brand has provided some of the biggest promotions throughout UK and Europe in the house and garage club scene. The brand started thanks to its unforgettable weekly events every Saturday at the ‘ Adrenalin Village’ in Chelsea. The legendary event ran for over 4 years, and attracted 2000 energetic party people from all over the UK on a weekly basis.
During Sun City’s peak years they held parties in the heart of the West End, in venues like The Hippodrome, Astoria, Emporium, and Equinox. Sun City soon became infamous within the UK through the release of tape recordings of each of the events, called Sun City tape packs ( yes, cassette tapes!). These tape packs would sell in the thousands, often more than commercial album sales.
The release and sale of these tape packs made the DJs and MCs household names. Up and down the UK, people saw the likes of Heartless Crew, Pay As You Go Kartel, The Dreem Team and So Solid completely take over the UK charts and radio waves.
The Dream Team went on to become the ambassadors of UK Garage with their weekly prime time show on BBC Radio 1, becoming a staple listen for all UK Garage fans across the UK. Heartless Crew and Pay As You Go Crew went on to have top ten- chart success that later led to the legendary sound clash at Destiny’s in Watford which was the most treasured tape recording of every UK Garage fan in the world.
Maxwell D of Pay As You Go, also achieved solo success in the UK National charts with his single “Serious” charting in the Top 20. So Solid Crew stormed the UK charts with numerous top 10 singles and one number 1 single, ‘ 21 Seconds’. The group consisted of a large number of members, the most notable being Romeo, Lisa Mafia and Harvey all of whom went onto bigger and better things, and are well known TV personalities.
In Europe, Sun City hosts extremely successful annual summer events in Ayia Napa, Falaraki, Malia, Magaluf, Croatia, Bulgaria, New York and now Dubai. Sun City provides memorable party nights like no other. Over the years Sun City has attracted the elite of UK Garage artists and for their next installment they have pulled out all the stops to bring one of the biggest UK Garage lineups Dubai has ever seen to Level 41 at Media One Hotel. Whistles and horns at the ready for what is shaping up to be a truly memorable night.
