Xclusive Events is proud to bring Duane Stephenson Live in Dubai at XL Dubai on Friday 7 September 2018.
Join a host of artists and DJs at the Habtoor Grand Resort for a night like no other. Visiting from Jamaica, reggae star Duane Stephenson headlines, with support from DJs Creme Delacreme and Pierra Makena.
Duane Stephenson is more than just a reggae singer. His work exhibits the versatility of many of music’s greatest artists in the pop realm; mixing poetic lyrics that address social issues, romance and global issues with excellent phrasing, potent hooks and melodic changes - all delivered in an extremely nimble tenor that wakes the soul and challenges the mind.
His first album titled ‘From August Town’ was released on Cannon/VP Records in 2008 and was produced by one of his musical mentors, the legendary Jamaican saxophonist Dean Fraser. The album was heralded by Billboard magazine as one of six albums, “collectively galvanizing a roots reggae revival” with “lyrics that convey romantic longings and the anguish of ghetto realities with equal conviction.”
Duane’s second album ‘Black Gold’ was released on VP Records in 2010 and was nominated for the 2010 Album of the Year at Jamaica’s EME (Excellence in Music & Entertainment) Awards.
The album peaked at number one on the Jamaica Music Countdown. Duane also notably collaborated with legendary musicians 'The Wailers' to write ‘A step for Mankind’ which was done in benefit of the United Nations World Food Programme.
Throughout the course of his career Duane has toured much of the world, with frequent tour dates across North, Central and South America, and parts of Europe. In 2014 Duane released the album ‘Dangerously Roots’ to critical and popular acclaim. For many, this third album solidified him as a Reggae singer of exceptional quality.
Meanwhile, DJs Creme Delacreme and Pierra Makena hail from Kenya, where they command massive followings. Consistently voted among the top female DJs in Africa, DJ Pierra promises to get the dance floor bouncing, while DJ Creme Delacreme has been voted the top DJ in the Kenya Book of Records, and the "People's Favorite" DJ.
In the King and Queens Edition on September 7, you'll also enjoy tracks from the UK's DJ Silva, who will be playing old skool RnB. Rounding out the night, Dubai's very own turntablist DJ Wasswa and DJ Fantafire will keep you moving with reggae, afrobeats and dancehall.
