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

KK

reissue label of the year: Habibi Funk

HF

HF2

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:

Kh

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

Record Store Day 2014

Posted in Die CD, Musik Department Berlin, Musik für alle with tags , , , , , , on 24. März 2014 by Musik Department

mmmh? last year I asked and I do it again – does the RSD makes sense for a normal, small, private,  independent old school record store – no!! why ?  – because i don’t have that play money i need, to order these tons of releases for again higher prices. I don’t have the good old Dukatenscheisser in the basement. Buying price for a RSD 7Inch in 2014 five to ten € – each. How many do i need 1/3/5/10 – more? That means for just one interesting article prepayment from realistic 20 to 100 Euros. How many releases? LPs, Boxes, …..up from 15€ to 50€ each – how many make sense – 1, no – 2, not really, 3, more ?

For this year we mainly concentrate on 7Inches and will hopefully offer a nice, interesting mixture . For preorder, of course also on 10/12Inches and Boxes, please use the german list !

Berlin on Vinyl – der Bildband

nach zwei Jahren Planung starte ich das Buchprojekt – Berlin on Vinyl. Der Blick auf die Stadt Berlin über Schallplattencover. Die Kontakte zu Verlagen gestalteten sich schwierig, da am Ende die Kontrolle über die Umsetzung, die Möglichkeiten einer eigenen Gestaltung verloren gegangen wären. Daher nun der Weg via crowdfounding.
