Might want to remove dancerecords.com from the list. They've officially gone under. :(

I'd love more sources to by 12" in the states.... Shipping form The Uk or rest of europe is pricey.... It keeps me on a steady diet of Ramen noodles and saltine crackers. Mosly specializing in house, dub, and breaks would be amazing! Believe it or not Juno is usually my go to connect
I was standing next to her and farted... Then Blamed it on a squeeky floorboard. She bought it, that was the first sign it was going to be a good night!

I would avoid giving Vinyl Know How your business. I ordered 100 pounds worth of records 6 months ago in January and they never sent them. I have asked for a refund or the records so many times but have just got excuses in return from Move-Ya saying that they had a computer virus and that they would send out "in a few days". This was a couple months ago and at this point he has stopped replying to my emails. They have no phone number either so its impossible for me to get a hold of them being halfway around the world. Its a shame because I have always respected my fellow lovers of breaks and represent UK breakbeats here in Seattle, WA. I was borned and raised in London and am sad that the Award Winning Know How Records has stolen my money. Now I have to go elsewhere to get fresh vinyl breaks.
I can only speak from my own experience but I have always had a pleasnt experince doing business with these guys in the past although, they do seem to have fallen on hard times - havent seen the shop open in ages, infact last I heard Move-ya was behind the counter in Vinyl addiction and their website seems permenantly down. So dont be too hard on them if an award winning breaks shop can go under, times must be tough for them. Can anyone shed any more light on the situation? Will they be back?

Thanks for the heads up on the TID stuff.....didn't realise NSB got a cut. Just spent SOME time transferring my existing wishlist from Juno to TID! Almost all on there too!!

Ashamed to say I am entirely in the realm of digital these days. After over ten years on the wax platters, space, time, money and 2 kids have conspired against me and vinyl is no longer viable if I want to continue at all!

All i can say on the subject (only been dig for about a year) is that BP rip you off for WAVs (separate 'handling fee') Juno DL have been good to me so far, but I'll be using TID wherever possible from now on.

Nice one.

Pretty sure Knowhowrecords in Camden has closed down now? But I used to get lots of my Breaks from there....

My first post, the one which is supposed to hurt the most, so here goes.....

Never quite understood why it matters if the shop is online only or a traditional physical premises, as long as you can buy what you're looking for at reasonable prices then why does it matter?

I personally love Juno Records, for its simplistic no thrills layout, the Tesco's of electronic music!
