The fellas behind bohemian music events company Boho Baha have dreamed up another new night, this time with tropical club sounds from around the world. The event, which launches on Friday April 15 at the newly renovated Sky Lounge in Hotel Diva, will see international DJs Nickodemus and James Locksmith perform.
Nickodemus, from New York, has been touring the global DJ circuit since the mid-90s and his style is rooted in club music, incorporating influence from across the world. The multi-awarded Dubai-based Australian James Locksmith also has nearly 20 years of experience and his sets are dedicated to new style tunes, spinning electronic, house, techno, disco, funk and world beats. For Tropicaliente, the pair is focusing strictly on tropical house and techno.
For this night, Boho Baha has teamed up with Dubai-based Jembe Music, the independent specialists well known for UAE events of their own such as Dust and Vibe Series.
To launch the event, the team has chosenJuffair’s Sky Lounge, a rooftop bar inspired by the Beirut nightlife scene which has recently undergone a transformation of its own and relaunched as a sophisticated indoor venue (but still boasting those lovely city views it’s known for, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows). On the night, it will be transformed yet again with colourful décor to set the tropical scene.
