Sitting on the edge of Bethnal Green and Whitechapel, new community-driven record shop Hidden Sounds will open this weekend with a three-day party happening between the shop on Cambridge Heath Road (Friday and Saturday), and Grow Tottenham (Sunday).
Having drawn a nuanced clutch of DJs from London’s underground populace (and beyond), founders Alessandro and Francesco have invited 30 DJs to perform over the weekend on an audiophile soundsystem supplied by Audio Gold. They aim to nurture a diverse, progressive community built on the tenets of inclusiveness and individuality in the music industry, with the shop offering a multi-disciplinary platform for buying records, hosting workshops, and putting on concerts, exhibitions and radio.
Heads appearing this weekend include Jaye Ward, Fizzy Disc, Miro Sundaymusiq, Bruits De La Passion, Jonny Rock, Amit & Aneesh (Brilliant Corners), Donna Leake, Beauty & the Beat, Coolant Bowser, Stockwell, Body Motion, and the Hidden Sounds residents amongst many, many more (If-Only included).
