MELLOW MUSIC MAESTRO Laidback Luke will kick off a series of Yas Island clubnights on Thursday, April 5.

The Dutch-Filipino star, real name Lucas Cornelis van Scheppingen, was last year named among the world’s top 20 turntablists by DJ Mag.

Luke heads to the Flash Forum with his brand of dance-happy house music, having remixed for acts including David Guetta (himself playing Yas Island on March 2), Kanye West, Coldplay and Beyonce. The 35-year-old also releases his own music, last year alone collaborating with Lil Jon and Example.

Event organiser Flash Entertainment, in association with international clubbing brand Cream, have confirmed that there will be numerous acts following Luke to Flash Forum in 2012.

Ticket prices start at Dhs195 for general admission (18+) and are available from and select Virgin Megastore outlets in the UAE.
