  • Deep Dive #5

    DJ Ishtah

    After a lengthy hiatus (he was last seen behind the decks in 2006), DJ Ishtah - aka Haitham Asfahani - is back with Deep Dive #5. Apart from rhyming - which we appreciate - the 90 minute set  is planted firmly in the deep house and nu-disco schools of musical thought, utilising remixes of old tunes. The set is part nostalgia for those of us who were partying in the 90s, and part happy-go-lucky ear candy for musical newbies. A musical veteran in every sense of the word, Ishtah was pivotal to the World Trade Centre's Upstairs/Downstairs/Pomodoro nightlife scene, before going on to work with Tabasco, Sangria and Absolut. With Deep Dive #5 - a rocking good time - Asfahani reminds us why he was was a big player in the 90s.
