was founded by Ben & Natalie McDonald in June
2003. Since 1999 they have been the most active promoters
of alternative electronic music in Dubai. From the
outset Ben has taken care of all the musical aspects
of their events, while Natalie has been responsible
for information collection and the general sanity
of all parties involved!
They kick started this alternative scene in June
2000 with the first LIQUID event held at Atlantis
above the Hard Rock Café, co organized with
DJ POINT and CHEDDA. Music policy was Trance, Funk,
Breakbeat and Drum & Bass.
The success of this event led to the second LIQUID
in January 2001 which attracted over 600 partygoers
bouncing to the sounds of KC SMOOTH & MACH4 alongside
MC’s FURY, VIPER and Dented Records’ DROP
Ben & Natalie then felt it was time to test the
waters with some international names and in April
2001 JUMPING JACK FROST graced the decks and gave
the crowd two hours of musical bliss.
After a month’s recovery from the antics of
Mr. FROST, it was time for MACH4 and the UK’s
ANDY PROFILE, playing back2back, to warm up the crowd
before the rolling sounds of Metalheadz residents
J MAJIK & MCMC touched down at what was to be
the last LIQUID event.
The last two years have seen Ben & Natalie push
the music to a wider audience, with regular D&B,
Breakbeat and Progressive shows on Radio 1, while
trying to find the perfect venue for Globalfunk
