  • Bristol label Shall Not Fade is opening a record shop. Located on St Nicholas Street in the Old City, Shall Not Fade will open on Saturday, December 4th. As well as a record shop, the space will host label management courses, DJ lessons and a new plant shop called Plant Works. The shop will stock releases from Shall Not Fade and their new Time Is Now outlet, as well as merch and music from artists associated with the label. Recent releases come from the likes of Jaymie Silk, Felipe Gordon and Earth Trax. From January 2022, the team will also run biweekly DJ lessons and label management courses at the shop. In a step to help make the music industry more diverse and accessible, 50 percent of places will be offered to young people aged 18 to 24 from disadvantaged backgrounds. The courses will be available online via a Patreon subscription. Register your interest here. "After operating online for the last six years, opening a physical space focussing on records, plants, in-store sessions and industry workshops felt like the next step," says label founder Kieran Williams. "For me personally, opening the store means a way of giving back to Bristol and creating a creative hub to hopefully help shape the industry for the future. This space is for everyone and we can't wait to meet other Bristol creatives in the store." Launch parties will take place in-store on December 4th and December 10th, coinciding with the release of the 6 Years Of Shall Not Fade compilation. Laurence Guy will play the first weekend, followed by Cinthie, Ejeca, DJOKO and more on December 10th. The party will then move from the shop to the club, with a party planned at Motion.
