A group of ten DJs from across Leeds and Bradford will be flying out to Dubai this summer as they join some of the biggest names in music in an attempt to smash an official Guinness World Record.
On Friday 31st July, music will take over the prestigious Marina Yacht Club in Dubai as a non-stop DJ rally takes place with up to 500 professionals spinning discs over three days.
Amongst the star names in attendance, such as David Guetta, Tiesto and Bob Sinclair, will be Keighley music promoter, Saby Khan.
Real name Sabir Hussain, the music enthusiast was selected by chief organiser of the event, Nadeem Chaudhry – of World Top DJs, to be one of the judges after successfully working in the country previously.
Despite having worked alongside some of the biggest names in the music industry, including 50 Cent, Snoop Dog, Black Eyed Peas and The Outlawz, the local promoter says the record attempt will still be a whole new experience.
“For the past 15 years I have treated the Entertainment and Music Industry like a family and worked in different types of Music Genres,” he said.
“This is an once in a life time opportunity to work alongside the best of the best in the DJ industry.
“World Top DJs chose me to be involved because I understand the world of diverse music cultures and genres.”
He added: “I strongly believe that working in the entertainment and music industry, you have to be open minded and diverse to achieve your goals and reach out to mass audiences with you talent.”
Saby, a former Keighley College student, began his promotions career shortly after leaving Greenhead School, arranging events in Bradford and Leeds before broadening his horizons.
He currently works with Bradford’s largest recording studios at Factory Street, helping aspiring musicians in the studio.
In Dubai, he will be joined by a number of other local talents including singer, Alibi Adam.
The longest club DJ rally will run over three days from Friday 31st July and ends on Sunday 2nd August.
