Is there any better fit for this vinyl only series than a record shop owner? We traveled (virtually) all the way to Dubai, UAE, to meet Shadi Megallaa, a man of many alter egos: record shop owner at The Flip Side, the only record shop in Dubai, head honcho at Ark To Ashes record label, record selector, record collector and sneakers addict. So yeah, his lifestyle revolves around records, no matter the genre.
Electronic music is part of his life, even if there’s more than electronic music in his super eclectic DJ sets. So, behind his glowing charisma, let’s meet Shadi’s vinyl alter ego with a neat selection of some of his favourite records:
The record that never leaves my DJ bag
Last record I checked its price on discogs
Last record I bought for my home listening pleasure
