Another independent vinyl purveyor for the capital – that’s two in as many months!
More excitement from London’s retail world as we learn that “a mecca for dance music lovers” is coming to East London in June.
Love Vinyl is the brainchild of four pillars of the local scene: record dealer Zafar Chwodry, aka The Mighty Zaf of Reckless Records and Zafsmusic.com; BBE affiliate and former owner of Village Vinyl in Walthamstow, Jake Holloway; producer, DJ and promoter Stuart Patterson; and James Manero of London promoters Another Party.
The shop will be split between two counters, one focusing on the latest house, techno, disco and edits (plus some of the best new reggae, soul and jazz) and one offering second-hand records and rarities.
A recent Facebook post states that the shop owners are currently looking for collections to buy up: “Will consider any genre and amount… please hit us up, we will pay fair prices for good records in good condition.”
The announcement follows news that Peckham will soon have its own vinyl specialist, Rye Wax, in the basement of the Bussey Building.
Love Vinyl opens on June 14 at 5 Pearson Street, E2 8JD.
