We recently went record shopping with Nick Powell, where he talked us though some of his favourite spots to go digging in the big smoke.
Soul & Dance Exchange, Notting Hill:
â€œA shop Iâ€™ve been frequently since the age of 14 or so (creaming myself over Defected promos lolz), this moody little shop has been a mainstay of my London record shopping sprees for a reason. The sheer quantity of largely essential House, Disco and Techno 12s in great condition is drool worthy. Notable â€œYES!â€ moments that are included in my mix are that fruity Pal Joey number and that Boo Williams track on Green Velvetâ€™s label Relief.â€
Phonica Records, Soho:
â€œAn obvious choice but I been buying one record a fortnight there for yars darling. A track I would of probably missed out on if I hadnâ€™t been there at the right moment is that cheeky Wyndell Long bumpy track. And JTCâ€™S â€œRecallâ€. Rare.â€
Alanâ€™s Records, East Finchley:
â€œI must admit to only having frequently this joyous place once, but what a time it was. I, a young man, venturing to the outer fringes of zone 3, NORTH London (gasp), and in the middle of suburbia most sinister I find one of the friendliest marts Iâ€™ve ever happened upon. Any record (and there were thousands) I was allowed to hear through the shopâ€™s soundsystem. Possibly my favourite cut on the mix, â€œTrackwerkâ€, was found here. Even if I couldnâ€™t hear the track before buying, â€œ2 Men From Jerseyâ€ = shoddily produced late 80s hip house and â€œTrackwerkâ€ = Kraftwerk samples galore. Winner.â€
He’ll be playing all night long on the Recession Sound System Funktion One custom rig, expect nothing more than the best party mix Shoreditch has to offer.
