DEEP CRATES @ ALKERSAL AV­ENUE

Infusion Magazine - - BACK LOOKING -

The venue calls the day of the gig to say per­mis­sions aren’t in, and the show can’t go on… dis­as­ter right? Three in­ter­na­tional acts ready to go on and nowhere to play. Luck­ily, the Deep Crates Car­tel are a re­source­ful bunch and turned a catas­tro­phe into one of the most unique and en­joy­able nights Dubai has seen. In a stroke of luck/ ge­nius/ what­ever, a venue was found in the form of the cAR­Tel ware­house in Al Quoz and Prince Fatty, Horse­man, and Tippa Irie played an as­ton­ish­ing set to ea­ger reg­gae fans. The venue pro­vided as close to a dance­hall vibe as it’s pos­si­ble to get; gone were the queues, bounc­ers, ho­tel lob­bies, ex­pen­sive drinks, and posers, and what was left was a crowd skank­ing away to the clas­sic and mod­ern reg­gae and dub vibes of some of the great­est in the in­dus­try. If this is the re­sult of nights go­ing wrong, more of the same please.
