    Who said Vinylmania is dead?

    “VINYLMANIA STILL ALIVE”

    Owner Charlie Grappone opened the Vinylmania’s doors in 1978. He opened the store with a sparse selection of Rock records, but after crowds from the Paradise Garage started showing up, he realized his market was with the house heads. Vinylmania quickly became the goto spot for house in NYC, eventually spawning a record label under the same name, and it’s legacy began. Sadly Vinylmania closed its doors in 2007 after almost 3 decades of business. Charlie has since moved his inventory into Downtown 161, a record distributor in Lower Manhattan, where he opens one day a week for a select group of shoppers.

    DailySession and Charlie Grappone are going to revive the life and legacy of New York’s premiere House record store — Vinylmania. The doors may have closed in 2007, but Charlie’s love for records still lives on. DailySession will open the Vinylmania pop-up shop in Zakka. So all you people who thought the record store ended when the lights went out, come into Zakka to feel the beat again.

  • NEWS: BIRDEL’S RECORDS CLOSE ?

    By  TIM STELLOHNY Times
    Joe Long has tried closing his legendary Brooklyn music shop, Birdel’s Records, before.

    Two years ago, Mr. Long posted a going-out-of-business sign in the windows of his Bedford-Stuyvesant storefront, which opened in 1944. With the decline of the music industry and of his profits, and the fact that no family member wanted to take over, he’d had enough. Mr. Long, now 73, began working at Birdel’s in 1957 and had owned the shop since the late 1960s. He was ready to retire, he said.

    But to hear him tell it, the neighborhood wouldn’t let him. [Read More]

    In humble deference to the top flight touring talent they regularly bring to NYC, the dynamic duo behind BLK|Market Membership are too often relegated to opening duties at their own parties, but make no mistake, these guys are a downright wicked pair of DJs in their own right. With the holidays approaching and everyone returning home to appreciate their families, we thought it was overdue to have a family night of our own at The Bandwagon so f@#k everyone else. We’re taking a ride with our own for this one, son.

    “Bless Up!”
    On the fifth day he created bass, then he took an Amen break. And so it was, that on Thursdays the high priests of low frequency would gather at the record store in Brooklyn to perform the ancient rites of the turntable… It is in this solemn spirit of praise to all that rumbles the jungle that the cult we call halcyon presents our latest, soon to be habitual ritual, Bless Up! – Thursdays from 6-9pm at halcyon the shop and broadcast live on dailysession.com. Funky monks take note, Bless Up! is three hours of anything-but-silent devotion to the woofer ripping trinity of Drum and Bass, Dubstep and Dub Reggae. Our own pied pontiff, Liondub administers the wax sacraments alongside a rotating cast of cardinals representing NYC’s holiest DJ diocese. Visiting saints make miraculous appearances and as always, there’s no tithe at the door and plenty of alms for the poor, so you can save while being saved.
    Bless Up with us on Facebook!
