Lebanon: Various artists - Jakarta Radio 010 Mix
With a collection of over 10,000 records and no space for them all, Ernesto took over his grandfather’s shoemakers’ shop to have somewhere to keep them.
"... Oh my, this is good. I don’t know much about the compiler of this great mix, apart from the fact that he’s called Ernesto Chahoud aka DJ Spindle, he’s Lebanese, he’s the founder of the Beirut Groove Collective and a big collector of Middle Eastern belly dance music. This particular mix, Middle Eastern Heavens II, was made for Jakarta Radio, and there are apparently more mixes to follow. Follow him on mixcloud here. And … strong look, Ernesto!"
