Yeah, we know what you’re thinking – has it really been two years already? It only seems like yesterday that they were celebrating their first anniversary! They grow up so fast, don’t they? They, of course, are Back 2 Basics.
On Friday 27th of March, B2B are set to return to Fairmont Nile City‘s Skypool to raise their glasses in a toast to two years in the clubbing game. Entertainment at the all-day party – which is set to kick-off at 2PM – comes in the form of a three-act line-up that includes local favourite, DJ SHawky, as well as Russian deep house, indie house and nu disco DJ, Anton Ishutin, and Franco-Greek house duo, Inner Rebels.
As one of the hottest up-and-coming DJs in his home country, Ishutin has been a busy bee as of late, with several releases under his belt raising his profile across Europe. Meanwhile, Inner Rebels will arrive in Cairo in a rich vein of form having released new EP, Struggle Swing, just over a week ago and they’ve also developed a reputation on ‘the continent’ for their energetic live sets.
Standing now as one of the most prolific event series in Egypt, B2B’s Ismail Kassem has proven himself to be a shrewd operator in the minefield that is Egyptian nightlife. Whatever your partying preferences are or what you think of Back 2 Basics, it’s certainly left a mark wherever it’s pitched its tent. From Cairo to Sahel, Summer Gate to Beach Bang, Cairo’s clubbers seem to follow wherever B2B goes and they’ll sure enough follow them to Fairmont on the 27th.
