Second hand record stores in Berlin

Post by MartyHofstra » Wed Jul 04, 2018 10:44 pm

Hi there,

At the end of July I'm visiting Berlin with some friends for some goold old partying (& to check out the city). Me and one mate want to spend one day digging during the trip. I was wondering if somebody has a recommendation for a second hand record store with electronic music? Preferably minimal/(tech)-house/ techno but I'm open for other (electronic) stuff too. I've been to Audio-in before which was nice but I would like to check out something else. At HHV, Spacehall and Hardwax ordering online is also possible so I don't really feel the urge to digging there.

From what I've heard, the Record Loft is supposed to be a good place for second-hand digging. Can any of the Berliners (or people that have visited) share their experience? Or recommend another store ofcourse. :)

Thanks in advance!
Marty

Probably too late on the response, but Bikini Waxx in Kreuzberg and The Record Loft are my favorite digs in Berlin. Bikini Waxx has a really well organized selection, lots of new and used records. The Record Loft is a little more of a dig, similar to A1 in NYC if you're familiar.

It was a little too late indeed, thanks for the reply though ;) I ended up going to the Record Loft twice, amazing store if you want to get your hands dirty. Best find: Villalobos remix of the Sinner in me by Depeche Mode. Since it is a white label it was a nice surprise. I will check out Bikini Waxx next time I visit Berlin.

record loft used to be a great place for digging 4-5 years ago. spacehall also has a huge stock of second-hand records. others are marla and black-round-twelve
