Dubai Street Jam #1 2015


Information
Date: 19th January 2015
Location: The Fridge, Al Quoz, Dubai

Dubai Street Jam, what better way to enjoy new underground artist, then to attend the first Dubai Street Jam.  This was a great way of bringing a lot of people from all around the UAE together, all for the love of Rap and the urban street culture.   The event itself was organized by Aj Adams and Wekafore Jibril, (some of you might now them as the creative guys from the new street-wear brand Wekafore) and was also hosted by Hype Monster, who recently attended Sole DXB last year. 

 The street jam was located at The Fridge, a new underground music space for up and coming artists. These new upcoming artists were able to get up on stage and show everyone their talent of spitting bars and their love for music.  The list of musicians who performed included;  Menon Freshman Moh flow Abz N1yah (note: she was the only female rapper)  Majeed Masuvious Black .

What was inspirational about the event, was that every rapper who performed onstage had their own distinct  way of freestyling, which is what made each artist unique.

Amongst Few @ Zoo Concept


Information
 Yesterday I attended the Backyard BBQ event, which in my opinion, is the best way to end the weekend!  It had a very laid back vibe, with the idea of having a BBQ,  an old school DJ, who was playing records ( vinyl records) all night long. They even had a  video game session of Street Fighter, so people were able to sit on beanbags and play street fighter for the evening!

This event was in collaboration with The Zoo Concept. The Zoo Concept is a quirky store located in Jumeriah Beach Road, as well as in Dubai Mall ( in the Level Shoe District area). In this store, you can find the quirkiest gadgets from Memo Mugs, to fashionable pieces such as; Sunglasses and funny t-shirts. You can even find books and stationary. If you like quirky gadgets, this is the place for you!

The event was the launch of Amongst Few's new collection. They an up and coming street-wear line and were selling their latest collection of Snapbacks, backpacks, hoodies and t-shirts.
They also showcased some of their pieces at Sole DXB( the last event that I blogged about).
From now, this brand has my support 100%!! I love their designs and the quality.

So if you are interested in new, undiscovered street-wear, go follow their journey.
