KR Newsletter June 2019 | Our New Permanent Home

Karl Mann

Hello, and welcome to the latest KR newsletter.

Firstly we wanted to extend a big thank you to all the support you have given us since out move from Dalston last September ☺️. It’s been a different and at some times challenging experience for us perched above the The Cause nightclub here in Tottenham and we’ve done our upmost best to make the most of running a smaller shop, maintaining a quality selection of both old and new music and generally becoming more online savvy whilst aiming to offer the best record shopping experience we can.

Over the past 6 months or so we have been slowly but surely working towards the opening of a new retail space so we can get back to the high street and make ourselves more accessible to both existing and new customers alike. Therefore, it makes us very happy to announce that in a few weeks time you’ll be able to find us at our new location at: 194 Well Street, E9 6QT - smack bang in the heart of bustling East Hackney 🚲🍻☀️☕️.

This move and the new shop will allow us to reach the wider community, not only through a mutual love for records but also the inclusion of a small cafe space nestled inside the shop. With more room and scope for in-store events, live DJs and a carefully thought out selection of hot and cold drinks, snacks and 🤞a premises license; we’re both eager to start the next chapter of Kristina Records.

Look out for more concrete information on an expected opening date, launch party and future plans to come in the following weeks! In the meantime we recommend you have a browse of our Discogs store and be sure to keep an eye on our website for new arrivals from our favourite distributors as we stock up in anticipation of the new shop 🎶.

That’s all for this month folks. Make sure to stay locked via our social channels for updates on the new shop, recent releases, store shenanigans and 2nd hand highlights. In the meantime, come pay us a visit in Tottenham and help us shift the now 2500+ records we have in stock 😅. All that’s left now is to round up with a selection of our current choice new and 2nd hand picks from the last few weeks 🎧.

🚨 Pre-Order Function Now Live 🚨

Karl MannComment

Here at Kristina Records we’re always thinking of better ways to get the music you love into your hands as soon as possible 🤙 and so to that effect we are going to trial a pre-order function where you can reserve copies of the latest releases from some of our favourite distributors from across the UK 🇬🇧 and Europe 🇪🇺.

Head over to the Pre-Order page of our website 👉 here and browse through a curated selection of forthcoming titles which will be dropping over the coming month 👀.

Including labels such as Roger Gerressen’s hotly tipped ‘Irenic’ for all your dub techno needs, Juan Atkin’s release on ‘Partout’ which sees four of the Detroit Legend’s tracks re-released on a killer 12”, super fresh electro/tech-house productions from rising Parisian duo Charonne on ‘LowMoneyMusicLove’ and a US import V/A 4 tracker from Brazil based label ‘Modified Electronic Behaviour’ filled with groovy minimal cuts + many more 👌.

It’s worth a reminder that any orders including pre-order titles won’t be shipped 📦 until all items are available and so please place separate orders to avoid delays 💨. Although we will be everything in our power to ensure pre-order titles are shipped out to you as soon as possible, release dates are at the mercy of labels, distributors, and pressing plants and so may change without notice 🗓.

All that’s left to do now is to round up a few of our choice selections from the pre-order titles. Most are quite limited so it’s always worth getting in there soon to avoid disappointment 😉.

KR Newsletter May 2019

Karl MannComment

Hello all and welcome to May’s edition of the KR Newsletter.

Lots has been going on behind the scenes here at KR as we’ve been beavering away with a couple of big projects, one of which we can finally reveal. 

Back at the start of the year we met a lovely couple who had recently moved to the UK from Canada with a dream of opening up a retro clothing and gift shop. An opportunity arose to secure a shop in Margate which they pounced on and have now since officially opened down on the east coast.

463f9589-74ea-4c87-b82b-126774702637.jpeg

As part of their vision for the shop they wanted to sell a carefully curated selection of vinyl records and so a collaboration was born. We’re very happy to announce then that you can now find a KR concessions stall stationed in the ‘Margate Gift Shop’. We’re really excited to see how this all evolves and will be restocking as regularly as we can get

Another shout out has to go to our friends here at The Cause where we have taken up residency since November 2018. They have worked tirelessly over the past year curating excellent events, hosting some of London’s most in demand promoters, raising money for charity and showing others how a nightclub and community events space can be run without the need for greedy corporate backing. Make sure to check out their 1st Year Anniversary party 'XXX’ this Sunday 26th May when a whole host of killer DJs and acts will play over the best part of 18 hours here at The Cause. Event info and ticket can be found HERE

Back to KR now and a short round up of what’s been going down at the shop here in Tottenham. First up, the quest for 2nd hand collections never gives up and we’ve recently taken on board a load more digging gold spanning a vast array of musical tastes. You check out all the listings on our Discogs page or come pay us a visit in Tottenham where we have even more to browse through. 

It’s not only 2nd hand music we’ve been buying in. The website is currently stocked with a load of fresh releases alongside a healthy back catalogue. If you’re looking for a bargain we currently having a big clear out in anticipation of moving to our new shop (more to come on that very soon!) Click HERE to browse the SALE items and remember, free shipping deals also apply in both the UK and Europe so make the most of them and save yourself some serious £££!

That’s about all for now; keep your ears to the ground for imminent news on our next permanent location and check out a round up of current new arrivals below.

KR Newsletter April 2019

Karl Mann

Hello, and welcome to the latest KR newsletter. 

April is upon us and spring is well and truly in the air. We’ve been keeping ourselves very busy over the past month with a steady stream of 2nd hand collections hitting our Discogs page and physical shop, covering a wide array of genres, moods and budgets :) As always we’ve kept the racks (and website) full of new releases and the dance music scene in general feels really healthy at the moment with killer music from a host of both new and established labels alike. 

It wouldn’t be an April newsletter without mention of Record Store Day 2019 and it seems to have crept up again this year surrounded by similar levels of excitement and scepticism from both punters and store owners alike. This year we’ve joined up with our friends here at The Cause and are getting in the spirit with an all day event with a pop up shop, DJs, cheap drinks and general appreciation of all things vinyl. Check the Facebook event page HERE for details and hopefully see you down there on Saturday 13th April from midday.

55875350_1157250304446148_3630384449121681408_o.jpg


Next up on the agenda - we’re getting involved in a new series of music events taking place in the newly refurbished bar area of Earth Kitchen in the heart of Dalston. On Easter Friday, 19th April you can catch KR's very own Karl Mann down at Earth Bar for an extended 5 hour set on Earth Kitchen’s newly installed Tannoy sound system. Playing the very best that the store has to offer alongside his own extensive record collection, all in outstanding high fidelity sound. Entry is free all night and all event details can be found HERE.

That’s just about all for this issue. Make sure to stay locked via our social channels over the new couple of weeks when we’ll be revealing some big news re: our next permanent KR home and in the meantime come say hello in Tottenham and get in touch if you fancy a dig outside of normal opening hours. All that’s left now is to round up with a selection of our current choice picks from the last few weeks. 

Peace!

KR Newsletter March 2019

Karl Mann

Hello, and welcome to the latest KR newsletter. 

Just over a month has passed since we revealed our new online shop and since then we’ve uploaded a flurry of vinyl shipments which have hit our shelves over the past few weeks. There’s plenty of digging to be had too, with new 2nd hand record collections going into the racks this week as well as on our Discogs store. As always, please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you want to come and have a dig, night or day as one of us is normaly around to cater to your vinyl obsession!

With recent boxes arriving from some of our favourite distributors, there’s more than enough fresh new music to browse and so we kick off with a round up of some killer dance 12”s in stock now. 

First up, the latest from Yoyaku’s sub label ‘YoY’ and a super solid 4 track club orientated 12” from Janeret. Full of bleeps, breaks, creeping pads and the drum work we’ve come to expect from the YoY imprint; there’s tracks here to suit all moods and dance floors. Now down to our last few copies so get in there quick!

Long time party starter and leading lady in modern club music, tINI brings her musical vision and distinctive DJ aesthetic to new label ‘Part Of The Gang’. This inaugural release sees tINI collaborate with Steffy Argelich and JAW in full-on club mode with stuttering synths, rolling kicks and infectious grooves, backed with a huge remix from Brummy legend Mr. G, ticking all the boxes we’ve come to know and love him for. 

'Art Of Dark' affiliate and vinyl loving DJ/producer Omar has brought the heat this month with two tech-house leaning affairs, sharing 12”s with Unai Trotti on the aforementioned Art Of Dark label and a collaborative 12” with Uruguayan export Nicolas Lutz. Both show Omar’s skill for blending current minimal sounds with the more well established tropes of house and techno encased by weighty production guaranteed to move those feet. 

Alongside all this we’ve also got a whole host of harder electro, techno and hot acid tracks from the Pinkman camp, Undersound and the always lauded Drexiyan back catalogue. Lots more where these came from too so pop into the shop over the next week for more treats of this nature!

That just about rounds things up for this update. If you don't already, please follow and contact us through our social media channels (FacebookInstagram or Twitter) or via email here for regular updates on what’s in store and exciting new developments in the pipeline.  Like we said above, drop us a line of you want to come a dig outside of hours.

KR Newsletter February 2019

Karl Mann

Hello, and welcome to our first newsletter of 2019! 
 
The lack of contact hasn’t meant we’ve not been busy - on the contrary we have some very important developments to tell you about over the next few weeks, the first of which being the launch of our brand spanking new website!
 
Along with a complete re-design, the new site is now fully responsive so you can browse to your hearts content, whether on desktop, laptop, tablet or your mobile device.  Preview and purchase all the latest arrivals, utilize your new customer account and enjoy a stress free checkout process – now with FREE shipping deals to both the UK and mainland Europe.  We are also happy to combine orders made via our website and our Discogs shop so please get in touch and we can facilitate that.
 
We’ve had a heap of new arrivals to mark the occasion with much more to come so keep checking back.  Latest highlights include a reissue of underground 90s classics from Bushwacka!, a new one in the Traumer series, an excellent new 12” from The Mole, a mysterious white label of forward thinking breaky minimal from Octobo and two releases from KR label favourite ‘Childhood Intelligence’ (along with a couple of restocks). This, plus a whole lot more is now all available to browse through here. Being a new site, we’re always looking to improve the user experience and so any feedback from you is much appreciated!
 
It’s been a very busy few months for us at current Kristina Records HQ over at The Cause in Tottenham, and we’re currently brimming with both new arrivals and quality 2nd hand stock.  As always please get in touch if you fancy a dig and we’ll do our best accommodate you rain or shine.  You can also browse our Discogs store here - currently with almost 2000 items listed with titles being added daily  - collections spanning US deep house, 90s & early 00s minimal, dance music obscurities and sought after modern day classics.  You can also order and collect from us to save on postage!
 
As hinted at we have more news coming soon – we’ve been working hard towards the set up of a permanent home and exciting new beginnings (more to come on that soon), the website being the first step so we hope you enjoy using it!
 
Watch out for more regular updates from us going forward as we move into this new chapter for Kristina Records! Check out our store highlights for this month below…
