  • Sydney promoter Something Else has opened a record store in the city's Inner West. The shop has been launched by Dave Stuart and Alex Dimitroff, the pair behind the once-weekly house and techno party series which has been running since 2014. Located on King Street in Newtown, Something Else Records will sell an assortment of new and secondhand vinyl, as well as new and refurbished turntables, DJ mixers (including the CanElectric Taula 4 tabletop rotary) and a range of accessories including headphones, cartridges and earplugs. In terms of the store's music policy, Stuart explains, "the artists that have played at our parties have really influenced the music that will be stocked in the store. If you've heard it played at one of the parties there's a good chance we'll be stocking it." Local labels and artists will be a focus as well, with releases from Nightime Drama, A Touch of Loft and Southern Lights already on the shelves. "There will also be a selection of more chilled out electronic for listening at home," Stuart adds. Check out some shots from the store.
    Something Else Records will be open from Thursday to Sunday each week, with visits on other days available by appointment.
