The door of the plane flung open and its passengers began making their way down the stairs onto the hot tarmac. It was a world a way from the place they’d left; every inch of the sky was bright blue and the trees that surrounded the runway were all bursting with life. All she’d ever known was the cold and dark, just harsh winters and dreary summers, all colour and brightness squeezed out of everything. She squinted up at the sun, letting the warmth bathe her whole. This is what she’d been missing; for the first time she felt like she was really living.


Dublin-based producer and DJ Jamal Sul is on quite the roll recently. Under his moniker Moving Still he recently made his debut on Palms Trax’s CWPT label with a collection of original cuts, and he’s also responsible for a catalogue of top notch edits that breathe new life into old Arabic gems. His next project is for Amsterdam’s Disco Arabesquo and Kuwaiti cassette label Al Nazaer, which sees him inaugurating a new 12″ series of edits called ‘Yallah Ya Ashab’, with two fresh takes on 90s Kuwaiti songs: the first a flip of singer and actor Bashar Ali Sultan’s ‘Omrena’ and the second a rework of a one hit wonder by a band called Firkit el Lotus.
