House/Techno //­so­cial

Dance mu­sic has never been big­ger in Dubai, so it’s fit­ting that the city now has its own al­bum, a 21 track se­lec­tion that brings to­gether nu- disco, house and techno.

Named Ma’ana ( which is Ara­bic for to­gether), the al­bum was pulled to­gether from over 70 sub­mis­sions, which alone tells you how vi­brant the scene is. The com­pi­la­tion fea­tures sev­eral cuts from In­fu­sion Records sign­ings Andy Buchan, Co­nan Liq­uid and Matthew Charles, while big guns like Raxon, Smok­ingroove, Ar­cade 82 and Nick Hussey are also in­cluded. Stand out tracks come in the form of Tom Chubb’s bass­bin both­er­ing ‘ Still Drive,’ Ilona Maras and Stel­lar Disco’s deep and soul­ful ‘ In­vi­ta­tion’ while Ray Soo, NFLNT, Sam Farsio & Reddub and Shaun Warner take things into techier ter­ri­tory.

It’s wrong to cherry pick from an al­bum this well put to­gether though – dance mu­sic is alive and kick­ing in the re­gion, some­thing this al­bum sums up per­fectly.
