Today’s Big Ups come courtesy of Beirut Groove Collector founder Ernesto Chahoud. A man who will go to great lengths to get the right records (as you will read in this interview), it is always a pleasure to talk to someone who is passionate and serious about the black crack. We have been following his escapades for years here at Flea Market Funk, and we are happy to have finally pinned him down for this Big Ups feature. So without further delay, here’s Ernesto Chahoud, one of the most interesting interviews we have ever done here at Flea Market Funk. Enjoy!
