After the huge success of last year’s opening Move the Record the return of record stores opening to diggers across Europe meant the return of this great initiative was a certainty. There has been no shortage of record stores being affected by the pandemic and the subsequent economic issues that come with it. So, the poignancy of Move the Record has never been so prevalent as it is today.
Without further ado, it is time to introduce the record stores and artists that will be in charge of the streams each week. Kicking off the first week is Birmingham and one of their most ardent vinyl heads Adam Shelton and his favourite spot Café Artum. He will be joined behind the decks by Jayson Wynters. The middle slot will be taken care of by Edinburgh’s finest wax emporium Underground Solu’shn and they will have a streamed set from none other Prosumer with Fryer (Athens of the North). The closing stream of the night will take place Mad Piano in Bucharest. In charge of the sounds will be Demete and Iona.
The next week’s stream that will take place on Thursday, July 8th will begin in Amsterdam and the site of the stream will be Seawolf Records. Brothers in beats Samuel Deep and Julien Alexander aka Ingi Visions will be in charge. Once the Slapfunk duo are finished it is off to London and Vinyl Pimp will be playing host to owner Hon and he will be playing b2b with Johnathan Greenwood. Rounding out the night will be Barcelona’s NUT Records and the all-star duo of TC80 and Molly will be working the decks.
The third week’s stream will take place on Thursday, July 15th and will begin at Doogan Records in Den Bosch. Repping Move the Record will be the pairing of Carista and San Proper. The middle slot will be back in the UK and Manchester’s Eastern Bloc will play host to Willow and Kerrie. Perugia in Italy will be last on the stop and they will be closing out at Music Box with Nick Anthony Simoncino and DJ Ralf.
The last week’s streams will take place on Thursday, July 22nd and Berlin’s KMA60 will see sets from owner Dana Ruh and Jus-Ed. London will again be part of Move the Record and this time it will take place at Kristina Records. Taking charge of the stream will be fabric resident Anna Wall and she will be joined by OdD. The last set of the project will come all the way from Montreal and La Rama will play host to Glowzi and Gene Tellem.
This initiative is all about supporting your local record store and ensuring their survival. You can also give what you can to the crowdfunder page too.
