What’s On and Hype look at clubbing in Dubai, profiling nights like Globalfunk and others on the growing underground club scene in Dubai.

Music policy: Drum ‘n’ bass.

Biggest moment? Maintaining the record for the longest-running nightlife brand in the Middle East, we’re now into our 12th year.

What sets it apart? GlobalFunk has always been about putting on a night with purely good vibes that you can turn up to on your own or in a group and still have a good night. There is no pretentious couple or dress code policies and we don’t waiver from our music policy.

Describe your clubbers: Cool cats, fly girls and real music lovers.

Tell us about your residents:  Well that’s me, MACH4. I like to deliver a lot of unreleased music ready to be broken to Dubai’s party people. Ultimately we’re all about spreading the music we love, and do that in a way that shows promoters can work together, as we illustrated with the success of the GlobalFunk v Bassworx event in September with dBridge.
