We are a Chicago-based record dealer since 2002. We specialize in the obscure and classic - Soul, Funk, Jazz, Latin, Rock, Blues, World Music, New Wave / Industrial, Hip-Hop, Disco, House in LP, 12inch single, & 45rpm formats. Influenced by the hyper-curated, hidden away vinyl shops of Tokyo, Japan, our goal is to become your 'secret spot.'

As DJs / performers who also collect vinyl, music is our passion and holds a special place in our lives. You'll find that the shop's selection represents our individual (and wildly varying) tastes. Whether it's a rare drum break from an obscure Psych band, a lost Disco 12inch from a group that should've 'made it', or the Blue Note pressing you've been after for years, we dabble in it all!

Our selection is available for browsing online (only certain items are listed digitally) or come visit us in real life and dig through EVERYTHING, including our massive bargain section. The Pop-Up is open every 1st Saturday by appointment only, and our website is open 24/7!

To help keep costs down, we offer flat-rate Media Mail shipping for U.S. customers. $5 for up to 5 LPs and/or 45s. $1 for each LP and/or 45 after. International orders will be shipped by USPS International First Class, which at the time is the cheapest & quickest option.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
