Where to dig for non-breaks old gems in town...


TRIBE Member
I figured I would spend this Saturday crate digging and blowing dust off jackets, it's been a while since I wasted an afternoon doing this...

Looking for old motown, 60's-70's R&B, funk (of course), disco, 80's new wave/dance (maybe I'll come across a Blue Monday original, never know), movie soundtracks, kitch for break loops and samples, maybe some newer indy rock/punk that's come out in the last couple decades (not essential though)...

One of those places you can spend several weekends digging, and not get through em all... and hopefully not spend more than $5-$10 per. A listening station would be bonus... a place like Dr. Disc in London (RIP).

I'm new to town, where's a good place like this in the GTA?

there's this place on queen west near bellwoods called electron i think. i dropped by a few years ago and they had a TON of amazing 80s stuff - new wave, early electro, etc... all in great condition for good prices.

it's on the north side of queen upstairs...
