I did meet a Emirati drug dealer once, Ava Daba Dat was his name..
And that's exactly what's happening here as well. There's an amazing local scene here which is growing just like it would in any other country.The intelligent way to export clubbing is to build local scenes slowly & organically which is what some people I know have been doing in Hong Kong, Bali, Melbourne - places without the history but where there is a tiny core of passionate people.
I completely understand that. I guess I didn't phrase my sentences correctly. There's a great local music scene here and hopefully it'll grow the way it has in these other countries.I'm not talking about corporate brands though. I'm talking about localised underground music scenes. Apples and carrots. If people want to go to El Row or whatever, that is their choice but that has nothing to do with local music scenes.
Well you did do those missions to and from Dubai/Ibiza didn't you just kiddingHopefully you don’t class me as insane?
My arrival back 2 years ago was interesting...left space direct to airport...same clothes and someone left something in my pocket...then my bag was lost..i double locked my door and was checking how I could dive out of my third floor apartment. It took 2 days for the bag to turn up. Not a pleasant timeWell you did do those missions to and from Dubai/Ibiza didn't you just kidding
I'm not saying it doesn't go on as drugs are everywhere but I wouldn't even think about taking the risk. Fair play if you do.
I was bricking it just passing through 2hours in Dubai airport en route to the southern hemisphere for being more than tipsy. I blame the timezones
Exactly. Even if you talk about any type of drug there people move away from you.. ive experienced this on visits. People talking about going to goa or going home on visits saying "can't wait to.get mashed".. fastest way to clear a table in Dubai..
