Shadi Megallaa of Flip Side DXB named the five best-selling records across his counter.

1. Rhythm & Sound - See Mi Yah (Burial Mix)

This record sold out in about three days. It's timeless. It is the very first record played in the store.

2. Constantine - Hades (Bedouin Records)

This album practically sells itself out when it's played on the store sound system. It's by our great friend Constantine Skourlis and was released by our own Salem Rashid's Dubai-based Bedouin Records label.

3. The Latinization of West Africa (Honest Jon's)

No one could resist the hypnotic grooves of this various artist compilation. An absolutely brilliant collection by the great Honest Jon's label.

4. Salah Ragab and the Cairo Jazz Band - Egyptian Jazz (Kindred Spirits)

This record flew off the shelves before we could blink. Another killer re-issue by Kindred Spirits. Egyptian jazz at its finest.

5. Arthur Verocai - Arthur Verocai (Mr Bongo)

This is an incredible self-titled album by the Brazilian master. Thank heavens Mr Bongo decided to re-issue this record. It had been the holy grail for many record collectors.
