DRUM AND BASS DUBAI FEAT. NICKY BLACKMARKET @ THE BASEMENT
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.
