We make no secret here at Le Visiteur that Razor-N-Tape are one of our favourite labels. Their output across the last few years has been sensational both across their edits label and their originals label Razor-N-Tape Reserve. Indeed we have covered many of their releases which you can check HERE. They are a label who have very much helped shape the sound of disco right now.
Now the team behind Razor-N-Tape are taking things one step further and showcasing their love for vinyl by opening a bricks and mortar record shop in their home borough of Brooklyn. Opening as part of their 10th Anniversary celebrations the shop will be open every Friday to Sunday stocking a wide range of vinyl from across the globe both straight from the presses and pre-owned. As you would expect you will also be able to pick up all the Razor-N-Tape releases as well as a host of sought after apparel.
The shop will feature a framed DJ booth in their window which will play host to guest DJ’s streaming across the web to the rest of the planet and giving us a real feel of Razor-N-Tape’s world.
The store design is by Elsa Arsenault and will feature “custom millwork furniture, a bespoke hifi sound system, and an oversized aluminum Bill Bernstein photo print, donated by the photographer himself”.
The shop will serve as the backbone of the Razor-N-Tape label operation, offices and shipping hub for the labels international operations.
Razor-N-Tape are currently hosting a GoFundMe campaign featuring exclusive merchandise, vinyl bundles, unreleased digital samplers, podcast USBs, & in-store savings to help raise money to fund the custom buildout & operations of the new space. Donators from around the world will receive special packages based on their giving level and NYC based participants have the option of choosing a more locally focused pack of gift & event rewards.
You can check out all of the different packages on offer here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/razor-n-tape-flagship-store
