Journeying through the fascinating and bass-heavy musical landscape of the Middle East’s burgeoning electronic music scenes, Hishek Bishek has emerged as London’s most pulsing underground Arabic party. From cutting-edge pop releases to cheesy classics, killer Mahraganat tracks and hypnotic Dabke remixes from the Levant, Hishek Bishek is back at Garage this time for a night of non-stop bass, mijwiz and beats.
SPECIAL EID EDITION
MINISTRY OF DUB-KEY
Ministry of Dubkey (MDK) is the crossroads of musical genres in exodus and a cunning homage to the vibrancy of Palestinian Dabke dance and performance. Established in 2009, DJ/Producer Bruno Cruz (DAM) and Performer/MC Walaa Sbait (47Soul) brought their homegrown Dabke Dance and Mijwiz sounds to match with the beats of hip-hop, dancehall and dembow, announcing with it the emergence of their unique Arab-A-Dub style. Bridging the sounds and movements that connect the shores of the Caribbean with the hills of the Galilee, sound system culture meets a late night Palestinian street party – and not a beat is amiss.
On the decks:
– Resident DJ SuperMike from Haifa –
Best known for his seamless blends and nostalgia for the 90s, his sets will take you on a musical journey across the Arab world with a wide range of music including top of the chart Lebanese hits, Syrian Dabke, underground Rai and alternative grooves.
