STROUD is set to become a vinyl haven as another record shop officially opens its doors this Saturday.

With a number of popular DJ collectives in Stroud and Dursley and new venues such as the Marshall Rooms opening, it only seems fitting that Stroud now has two record shops.

The new shop, Sound Records in Gloucester Street, hopes to meet the growing demand for vinyl records in the town, which is thought to be due to the explosion of DJ culture in the district.

Sound Records is a partnership between local DJs and record dealers Sean Roe and Tom Monobrow.

Both have an extensive knowledge of all genres and they also promise regularly rotated stock to draw collectors to the town.

Tom explained that a varied selection of vinyl will be on offer.

“We’ll have everything from modal jazz to break beat, as well as all the classic albums,” he said.

His business partner and fellow record dealer Sean Roe said that he believes that the shop would be well-placed to meet a growing need.

“We both know a lot of local folk and what they like, so we think that we’re quite well placed to serve this growing need.”

In addition to the all-important vinyl treats, the pair promise special events and festival tie-ins, but most importantly, the best possible selection of records for everyone to enjoy.

Sound Records will be open today, Saturday, March 17, for anyone looking to buy or sell vinyl at 24 Gloucester Street, Stroud.
