Phonte to Hit the Mic in Dubai

25 Apr 2012

MC, singer, songwriter and producer will be a special guest at Deep Crates on Thursday

Grammy-nominated MC Phonte, of Little Brother and The Foreign Exchange fame, will hit the mic at club night Deep Crates on Thursday.

Our sources tell us that the singer, songwriter and producer is in town to catch Aloe Blacc at The Dune Over at XL Beach Club on Friday, but told the organisers he also wanted to perform for a Dubai crowd while he was here.

Deep Crates is all about funky block party sounds and the best turntable skills you’ll find in the UAE. Regulars DJ Lobito, and DJ Frezidante will be joined by Phonte to keep the crowd on the dance floor with tracks spanning funk, hip hop, latin, afrobeat, reggae, soul and Brazillian.

Phonte's critically acclaimed solo album, Charity Starts At Home, which dropped last year, has some sweet party tracks, so expect to hear them at Casa Latina on Thursday night.
