- They are having a farewell party at Griessmühle on January 26th.
Bass Cadet Records will close at the end of 2016.
The vinyl and clothing shop was situated for three and a half years on Weserstrasse in Berlin's Neukölln district. In a written statement, the team behind the store said "roadworks that choked us since August" were behind their decision to close. The store had forged relationships with the likes of Levon Vincent, DJ Qu, Jus-Ed, Fred P, Ron Trent, AYBEE, Lerato and others over the years. They also started an eponymous label and a sub-label called Orbits, which has released a record from Trent and has a forthcoming 12-inch from Jenifa Mayanja.
The store's farewell party is taking place at Berlin club Griessmühle on January 26th, with Deadbeat, rRoxymore, Telephones and more than 30 other acts on the bill.
