Al Serkal Avenue brings us Dubai’s first independent record store!
We visited Flip Side DXB and our first impression was… ‘authentic’. The store boasts a stacked vinyl collection covering genres like Hip Hop, Reggae, Blues/Jazz, Electro/EDM and Local UAE artists. For collectors out there, there’s a special section with Rare Arabic Classics on wax, and they’re all original copies so you know what that means – no repeats! Once it’s gone, it’s gone. Aside from the vinyl selection being timely and fresh, it exhales classics from all different eras and features one of the best compilations of UAE based musicians.
