Join us Monday, June 26th at our next From the Counter destination with Discogs. We're travelling to Beirut, Lebanon to broadcast from the historic Chico Records – home to the largest collection of Middle Eastern records in the world.
This iconic space will host our next 100% vinyl session. Chico Records came up on the map in the sixties. And featured on this event's flyer is one of the first photos ever taken inside the record shop of the original Chico Records crew. An archive that's rich with Lebanese groove history, it's an apt next addition to our From The Counter series.
On the bill we have expert digger Jannis Strutz, aka Habibi Funk. Strutz specialises in Arabic music, matching the setting of Chico Records perfectly. Alongside him will be Ernesto Chahoud, aka Spindle. Chahoud's musical colour promises an eclectic set – from the deepest funk to Northern Soul and beyond.
