Welcome to issue 19 of Deluxe. This edition flips the usual parameters as we’re focusing on the content of the shops rather than the bricks, mortar and shelves that confine them. We’ve produced a list of 100 albums - compiled by the staff at Drift Records, our own shop - that have turned our ears and heads throughout 2019.
As we’re based at Drift for this edition, we’ll also talk about their Sea Change Festival - that runs annually on the last May bank holiday weekend - and also the Dinked Collective of independent shops, a motley crew that includes Drift as one of its founders. These days, record shops play an ever bigger part of the creative community. We’re proud to have a home and we’re proud to be needed.
