This Weekend! Joel Stones’ NYC record store Tropicalia in Furs will open again at Rappcats in Los Angeles for a 2-day popup shop for Record Store Day Weekend

April 13 & 14 (Sat & Sun) 12-6 PM
Rappcats, 5638 York Blvd, L.A. CA 90042

This year’s collection will have a special focus on 45s, in addition to Joel’s usual Brazilian and worldly gems: “I will bring tons of Brazilian records, LPs, some jazz, funk, soul, prog, psych, garage, and thousands of 45s with good French, Turkish, African, American and beyond from my own private collection.”

Tropicalia in Furs, East Village NYC, was a record store like no other, a spot for rarities, psychedelic sounds and unparalleled chit chat. The shop closed in 2013.

“This is a soulful city…this is an R&B city” – Ron Trent

Just finished watching the first episode of the great new series from Wax Poetics called Soul City.  This episode focuses on the South Side of Chicago, hometown of writer Ronnie Reese.  He interviews Todd Mayfield, the son of Curtis Mayfield and author of Traveling Soul. They discuss the pioneering indie labels of Curtis Mayfield, music ownership, as well as his devastating injury.    Reese then links with house legend Ron Trent who chronicles his career as a DJ and producer.  As a bonus, Reese also visits a Crate Diggers/Discogs record swap with both Mayfield and Trent to do a little digging.
