Post-rock on the Dubai metro

We’re heading underground today, to the plush, air-conditioned environment of the Dubai metro. Le Tuan‘s 20-minute field recording takes you on a trip from the Mall of the Emirates Metro Station, Sheikh Zayed Road, through to Union Metro Station, at the corner of Al Marktoum Road and Omar Bin Al-Khattab Road. 

The sound was taken on by new Brazilian contributor Rodo Ramos, who has produced an extraordinary reimagined sound – a full guitar-and-drums post-rock track built around the original recording – fantastic stuff.

We love moments like this – a field recordist from Vietnam and a sound artist from Brazil collaborating across the oceans via a digital project based in the UK!
