From 3rd to 6th October, Brick Lane will be transformed in to a crate diggers paradise.
Following the successes this year of Record Store Day and The Independent Label Market, it is the turn of the London Record Fair to satisfy the capital’s vinyl junkies. The 50 stall market will run the roost over Brick Lane’s Old Truman Street Brewery for the four day period, with labels Brownswood, Rush Hour and Soul Jazz to set up shop for the fair, with Brownswood label boss Gilles Peterson is also set to play the fair’s official after party on October 5th alongside Simbad. Reputed dealers set to appear at the fair meanwhile, include Hugo Mendez of Sofrito’s tropical discotecque and Psychemagick‘s Danny McLewin. With DJ’s set to appear at the fair, which is free to attend all week, it would appear this is an event for both avid collectors and casual fans alike.
More info on the fair can be found on the official website here, whilst you can watch a video of Gilles Peterson talking about musical variety and his label below.
