24 of the BEST Indie Music tunes from the middle east in 2017

I am easily the luckiest guy in Dubai. Every week Adam, the guy in the picture above, joins me for the price of a cup of decaf, to talk about the coolest indie music in the middle east and along the way we actually get to play the tunes. So, not only do I get […]

Your Weekly Music Fix

One of the things you learn very fast when you have the opportunity to listen to radio from around the world is that there is not a lot of local music being played anywhere. What is going on with the indie music scene in the UAE is not much different anywhere around the world, it […]

A little Indie Music

How often do you get to sit down with a great cup of coffee, some really good friends and talk about music that is great and not being heard by enough people? For me this happens on a weekly basis. I rock up at RAW Coffee, they turn down the house music and we talk […]

The Middle East Indie Music JukeBox

Every week I get the chance to sit down with Paul Kelly from Triplew.me and play some fantastic music. This is an hour of radio I personally look forward to creating every week. Maybe I dream of being Scruff Connors from Q107 days in Toronto or Derringer or Tim Klassen (who is in Dubai now I listened […]
