US hip-hop talent Talib Kweli is to DJ the launch of a new club night in the UAE. The former Mos Def collaborator will be behind the decks at The Act Dubai on Thursday (February 25).

The booking marks the launch of a new clubbing concept aimed “specifically for the swaggiest of swag”.

Dubbed Dubai with Attitude, the new night aims to channel the outrageous and “ultra glam” vibe of a Grammy after-party, running until 3am, but begins at a serene 8.30pm with a Peruvian dinner.

Kweli found early fame collaborating with Yasiin Bey, the artist formally known as Mos Def, forming the group Black Star, before striking out with a solo career which has included collaborations with Kanye West and Pharrell Williams. In 2011, Kweli founded Javotti Media, “a platform for independent thinkers and doers”. For reservations call 04 355 1116 or email reservations@theactdubai.com
