Cairo Jazz Club was packed with party-loving House-heads once again, as Egypt's Karim Morsi and Holland's Patrick Hagenaar played back to back. A Dancestock virgin, Conor Shiels checks out the scene...
Cairo's beautiful people packed into the Cairo Jazz Club on Wednesday night for a midweek feast of yummy House beats. The CJC faithful arrived early and it was pretty clear from the outset that the night was going to be just little bit special. As a Dancestock virgin, I had heard good things but I wanted to test the hype for myself – even if it did mean going out on a school night.
Egypt's own DJ Karem Morsi got proceedings underway with a varied selection and whipped the crowd into a frenzy with a euphoric mix of hands-in-the-air, melodic House music. The result: A happy, fun and friendly crowd lapping it right up off his decks.
As midnight approached, it was time for headliner Patrick Hagenaar to take to the CJC stage and the Dutchman certainly didn't disappoint, keeping the carnival atmosphere flowing until far too late. In short – Dancestock provided a solid start to the weekend, some quality House tracks and, most of all, a bucketload of fun.
The fourth and final Dancestock of this season will be next Wednesday, 27th Novemberm and features Aguizi & Fahim from Egypt and Rachael Starr from the US. For more info click here.
