He may have been nominated for a Mercury award on Friday, but Jamie xx hasn't spent his weekend resting on his laurels. He's just opened Good Times - a pop-up record shop on Kingsland Road in Hoxton, having already ventured into the retail game with a similar pop-up in New York earlier this year. The shop is jam-packed with his own releases - some of which will be signed, a hand-picked selection of vinyls from local shop Kristina Records, as well as some of the records sampled on his new album, 'In Colour'. Good Times will also host a series of in-store DJ sets, which will be broadcast live on NTS Radio. But blink and you'll miss it because the shop is only open until Friday (October 23), so get down there pronto because everything must go!
So my Good Times Store is properly open today. Find it at 73 Kingsland Road, London. I've picked a bunch of records to be sold, including a selection from one of my local favourite store Kristina, a bunch of the records I sampled for In Colour (bought off Discogs), some of my releases (a few signed) and other assorted gems. I've also curated a series of radio shows to be recorded live from the store and go out all week on NTS.
