Nosaj Thing + Friends

in the Al Qudra Desert

“The desert provides such an inspiring atmosphere which instantly clears out the mind and boosts the creative juices.” - Tarek Yamani (from the Fader interview)

For Dubai Originals Nosaj Thing, Dubai-based DJ Essarai of the 264 Cru and jazz pianist Tarek Yamani were jamming and drifting in the desert. Luckily some drones were able to catch these captivating images.

“It was unconventional, obviously — we had sand in our eyes and got baked by the sun. But it wasn't even about jamming, it was about being in the Dubai desert with everyone that was there just doing something we can remember. It was a real special moment.” - Nosaj Thing (from the Fader interview)
