What sparked the idea to open it – is there any particular story behind it?
We started in 2009 as an online music community for sharing and discovering music in 2009 called The Mixtape Club. The record (and coffee) shop is an extension of our original project.

What was the most awkward/funny request you have ever received?
Surely in time we will have more interesting stories, but most recently a prop stylist was looking for white label records to customize for an advertising commercial. It made us think about the lifespan and future home of those records.

What is currently one of your most valuable/ sought-after record on your wall?
An original pressing of one of Kenny Dixon Jr.’s (Moodymann) first EPs: Moody Trax EP from 1994. He is one of our heroes so it’s an honor to have this record on our wall while it lasts!
