UK DJ/producer Jamie xx has opened his own pop-up record store in Hackney.
Opening yesterday at 73 Kingsland Road, the Good Times Store London is set to stock a selection of records from local imprint Kristina Records, signed copies of Jamie xx's latest LP 'In Colour', a bunch of the original records Jamie sampled during the making of 'In Colour', plus a host of other "assorted gems".
The shop will also be used to record a series of live broadcasts this week, that'll include Mica Levi, Oneman and Benji B as guest hosts, and are scheduled to play on local radio station NTS.
The shop is open until next Friday 23rd October.
So my Good Times Store is properly open today. Find it at 73 Kingsland Road, London. I've picked a bunch of records to be sold, including a selection from one of my local favourite store Kristina, a bunch of the records I sampled for In Colour (bought off Discogs), some of my releases (a few signed) and other assorted gems. I've also curated a series of radio shows to be recorded live from the store and go out all week on NTS.
