New Dubai music

Check out new music in Dubai at the Movida Corona final...

Dubai has had a thriving club culture for years now, but it seems as though the world has only just realised. Not only has Dion Mavath become the UAE’s first DJ to be signed to a major international label, but Dubai has now been folded into the world-spanning Movida Corona DJ competition.

Spread right across the planet, the contest sees the world’s brightest DJing talent competing in local heats, each of which will see one triumphant winner becoming king of their region. From there, the winners will then travel to Berlin for the grand finals, to compete for the title of Movida Corona Amateur DJ of the Year. And even if they don’t win the grand prize, they’ll still walk away with some tasty Pioneer CDJ 2000 decks.

What does that mean for you? Well, it means you get to check out some of the city’s upcoming talent at Barasti, Time Out’s official Bar of the Year. And when we say talent, we mean it: these guys may be amateurs, but – based on what we’ve heard – they’re not amateurish. It really should be a cracking event.
The Movida Corona final is at Barasti, May 7, free.
