There’s a distinct European feel about events across Cairo bars and clubs this weekend, with three of the biggest parties hosting DJs from Greece, Italy and Spain. But our boys are in the mix, as the city’s local talent steps up, too. Have fun, and listen to house music responsibly.
MS. LEFKI @ TAMARAI
She might look like that English teacher you always wished would unbutton her cardigan in class, but having been in the game for almost twenty years, Greek DJing stalwart, Ms. Lefki, is no prude.
THIS IS ROME @ O BAR
The Fairmont Nile City’s O Bar is going all Italiano this weekend, with Rome native, Tradelove; a DJ and producer that was nominated for Beatport’s 2012 Breakthrough Artist of the Year award, which I’m told is a big deal.
DAWSHA @ VENT
Rappers are few and far between on Cairo’s otherwise eclectic music scene, but VENT’s Friday night booking, Darwasha, is one of the best around. Just look at his cool hip-hop hat.
THE AXEL FOWLEY TOUR @ TAMARAI
Shipped in from the sunny shores of Sahl Hasheesh to bring some sunshine into our miserable city lives, Ibiza DJ, Axel Fowley, kicks off his Cairo tour at Tamarai, where he’s sure to enjoy the ice-cold, rooftop breezes.
NACELLE HOUSE SESSIONS: ALY B & HISHAM ZAHRAN
With House Sessions recently moved back to Fridays, Nacellians all over the city have found meaning to their lives again and will be pleased with this week’s line-up, as the elusive Hisam Zahran joins Aly B.
