Love Vinyl turn 1!

10669291_292109844309156_1187725257176581919_oSeems like only yesterday Love Vinyl, London’s newest record shop opened in East London but not so. This success story is now turning a year old and they will be celebrating in style all day long at the shop and later that night at Shutterbug down the road.

Although we highlight how time has flown at the store, when you take into consideration the incredible number of in store performances during this time from the worlds most influential DJs, artists and labels, it is a wonder the place hasn’t been open for years! I could go on with a list of around 50+ names, but to give you a taste the likes of Timmy Regisford, Danny Krivit, DJ Pierre, Roger Sanchez, Osunlade, Greg Wilson, Crazy P, Faze Action, Sean P, Floating Points, Karizma, Horsemeat Disco, Bill Brewster, DJ Spinna, Chez Damier, X-Press 2, Mr. Thing, Farley N Heller, DJ Spen and Jimpster have all been on the decks behind the counter during the last 12 months (see facebook event link below for the full list).

So to the birthday celebrations, during the day there will be a host of talent offering in store DJ sets with already announced names Kon, Ashley Beedle (with Earl Zinger on the mic) and Ralph Tee with an Expansion records showcase, plus some heavyweight additions and a very special surprise guest all said to be announced in the very near future.

Onto the evening, the Love Vinyl weekly session continues as always at Shutterbug with their group of All Stars in attendance but word is out that there is a very very special US guest booked in! We are digging with those Love Vinyl boys to try and get you the scoop on this one. Both the day and night events are completely FREE.

People said they were mad to open a vinyl record store up this time last year, but seems they were the perfect team to make a success out of this venture. Long live the black plastic and long live Love Vinyl.
