Rückblick 2017

Posted in Musik Department Berlin, Musik für alle with tags , , , , , , , on 31. Dezember 2017 by Musik Department

2017, a fast and perceptively year. The ongoing medial coverage, about an assumed renaissance of vinyl culture is the big misunderstanding between apparenty interest and the daily hard life of a store owner. The growth rate concerns online sales, less the analog existence without web store, discogs business, …

The new enthusiasm about vinyl or vinyl culture is simply an appearance and less a reliable movement. A simple example on not reliable rapture showed the Berlin based RadioEins on a video, produced for the “vinyl day“ on their channel. Be stunned here

Therefore, here a few notes about our daily business, light spots and alienations.

main challenge of the year:
the new quality on perception that means the dislike to spot something. Curiosity is slowly dying, spontaneity already disappered. In other words decorators versus music lovers.

realization of the year:

tons of releases. Mean is the new spearhead

positive surprise of the year:

King Krule, The Ooz


reissue label of the year: Habibi Funk



wrong stock of the year:
customer: do you have bird sounds on vinyl?
we: yes, have a look ( 9 records with 324 bird samples from three continents).
after 8 minutes – no business. He missed the bird, he was looking for.

maybe you missed or looked for list variable here

anticipation of the year, means release january 2018:


Berlin classic of the year:

ambition of the year:

2018 we start our 7Inch Label. Right of ownership already save.

question of the year: …. do you have normal records?

poem of the year = Peace, wherever !

the earth is my altar,

the sky is my dome

the mind is my garden

the heart is my home

and i’m always at home
