What a great way to end the season…
The Penthouse’s Skyline Thursdays have brought a number of big-name DJ superstars this season, with Eli & Fur, Solardo, Disciples and Wanklemut all spinning over the last few months.
But it’s not over yet, the stunning rooftop spot has announced a major line-up for April, which includes Felix Jaehn, Hannah Wants and Lost Frequencies.
Due to the increasing success of the weekly night, The Penthouse now also offers an evening brunch featureing live cooking stations and unlimited drinks from 9pm to 11pm. Priced at Dhs149 for women and Dhs249 for gents, it’s a great way to warm up for a big night out.
Here’s who you’ll catch spinning this month…
Thursday April 4: Felix Jaehn
German producer, DJ and song-writer, Felix Jaehn, rose to fame when he remixed OMI’s Cheerleader into the number 1 hit version that we know and love today. He then went on to produce incredible tracks such as Ain’t Nobody, Feel Good and All The Lies. He has also collaborated with Steve Aoki and Adam Lambert on Can’t Go Home, with ALMA on Bonfire and Marc E. Bassy & Gucci Mane on Cool. He will be taking the stage at The Penthouse for the first time with Johannes Hohls on April 4, due to play from midnight until the early hours.
Thursday April 11: Booka Shade
Berlin-based duo, Booka Shade, will play at The Penthouse’s Skyline Thursdays on April 11. Legends in the European electronic dance music industry, you might recognise the 2005 song Body Language as the bassline was sampled for Jax Jones’ hit You Don’t Know Me. The pair, who have remixed the likes of Depeche Mode, Moby, Hot Since 82 and Kings of Leon, have been making music and playing shows for almost two decades with no signs of slowing down.
Thursday April 18: Hannah Wants
Iconic Brit-DJ Hannah Wants will return to Dubai to a no-doubt sell-out crowd of loyal fans. The award-winning DJ and producer is best known for her debut single Rhymes with Chris Lorenzo, she has since gone on to launch her own label and is due to release a new record titled When I Think of You soon. She has toured all around the world, remixing some of the biggest songs of the past decade including La Roux, Disclosure and Tough Love.
Thursday April 25: Lost Frequencies
Not content with only one performance at The Penthouse this year, Lost Frequencies is due to return just two months later for another epic show. The Belgian Are You With Me hit-maker reached number 1 in 18 countries at just 20 years old. He’s since gone on to further his success with remixes of Major Lazer/Justin Bieber/MØ’s Cold Water, Miley Cyrus’ Malibu and LSD’s Thunderclouds as well as his own follow up singles Reality, Beautiful Life, What Is Love and All Or Nothing.
