Dial Africa is extremely excited to welcome back Chris Menist, co founder and owner of the record label Paradise Bangkok and all-round music enthusiast.

He has compiled, over the course of spells spent living in Thailand, Yemen and Pakistan, a collection of records to make even the biggest world music fans go weak at the knees with excitement.

Known for his capacity to search that little bit harder, to dig that little bit further, Chris Menist delights in shaping his constantly-surprising DJ sets around the latest unearthed gems. Capable of seamlessly bridging cultures, every set he plays is a new chapter in a life story dedicated to musical discovery.
