First Word x Record Store Day 2014

Posted by Chris Airplays, 13th April 2014 08:52pm

It’s like a Hip Hop super group coming together for Record Store Day 2014. Looking forward to this release.

“On a Saturday morning at the start of November 2013, First Word Records took 3 of our favourite producers out of London to spend the day browsing through the vinyl shelves of the biggest record nerd we know – the incomparable Mr Thing. This was the culmination of an idea that first manifested itself on Record Store Day 2012. Like most ideas it was a natural conclusion to a conversation about records and music -kidkanevil had expressed a desire to dig through Mr Thing’s sizeable collection for some inspiration. Chatting to Mr Thing it seemed unfair to limit this to only one producer - Tall Black Guy and Eric Lau were top of our wish list. So – a double 7″ (Mr Thing would make a beat too – they are his records after all) in time for Record Store Day 2013 (yes, we’re a year late). There was however one stipulation about the records from the usually mild-mannered Mr Thing:

‘The guys can sample anything they like, but Nothing Leaves The House….’

And who were we to argue…..

The result is four tracks that celebrate our love for record digging, sample chopping and the simple love of a dope beat.”

Don’t be a wanker

Keeping with tradition, I’ve put together a flyer calling out the pricks who use Record Store Day as an opportunity to fuck people over. Don’t be a wanker.

It’s that time of year again, Record Store Day is nearly upon us and to celebrate I’m offering a 10% discount throughout April on everything in the shop. Just enter RSD2014 at the checkout.

I’ll hopefully be somewhere selling tees and listening to records on the day. Judging by the street party in Soho last year that’s probably a good place to be if you’re in London.

Keep The Vibe Alive

Roy Denim

Hardly the most affordable pair of jeans but when you see how much work goes into a pair of Roy’s denim you know why they cost so much. Really great video for those who like to know how things are made. Purchase here.
