Our friends at FACT.TV send local DJ Bart Sibiel to discover the best record shops in the Belgian capital.

Belgium’s capital is known for operating at a slower pace than many of Europe’s key cities, and that translates to their vinyl culture – as the staff of The Collector tell host Bart Sibiel, they don’t want to take part in the “online craze” that dominates much modern-day record buying.
Later in the show, Sibiel heads to the “more specialist” Veals and Geeks and Doctor Vinyl, the dance store that Jeff Mills, Dave Clarke and others visit when they’re in town, and explores the general differences between people’s approach to record shopping in Brussels and that of other European cities.
