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.
