Mike D talks DXB
Being asked to give a point of view on music is like being asked to comment on politics. No matter what I say, it is best to agree to disagree. That said, I am not going to comment on any specific type of music, but rather on the “State Of The Union” as it where. Dubai is in a very strange place musically, radio is nothing more than fodder for your ears, clubs pretty much play the same thing and despite the efforts of a few, to break the mould, our underground music scene is pretty lax.
I for one listen to and appreciate a variety of different kinds of music and while the internet has proliferated the number of bands / musicians out there, we’re still lacking when it comes to access and consumption…. I get it, people are content and if you are like me, you hoard all the good music, and play it out when asked on special occasions. Well, there is nothing more special than SOLE DXB, so I hope you will take a chance and lend me your ears, with that said, in the spirit of fostering and building a culture and community, aspire to be bold and try new things and above all else be better than the radio! See you all on the dance floor.
Mike Daniel will be on the decks at Sole DXB 2014.
