Buying vinyl online
So where is everyone buying their wax from these days? I haven't regularly bought vinyl for a few years now and it seems like the cost of shipping has gone up massively in that time. I've bought a few things off Discogs but the prices vary depending on the retailer.

Unfortunately the digital era killed off most of the local record stores so there isn't as much variety as there used to be.

Any suggestions?

Depends what you're after really...I long ago stopped buy 12" dance singles, they're just too damned expensive! But buy albums/LPs from various places, direct from artists websites, Amazon, JB Hi Fi online...shipping has gone up a lot...I remember back in the day an order from Juno would land you records in NZ for cheaper than most stores charged per plate. Not so much anymore...has to a total gem or a bargain to get me to buy it!

Slower tempo but still with balls, deephouse, slow-mo, futurehouse, nudeep, indie, nudisco, hints of progressive, whatever the fuck you want to call it, just good shit! Get on it

Yeah I used to buy quite a bit from Juno and an Australian online store, Vinyl Warning. I used to be able to get 12 inches for between $10 - $14 as opposed to $20 + in store.

I buy a pretty broad range of stuff these days but mostly on the soul/funk/house tip.

Usually Juno, deejay.de, or discogs there are a few overseas record shops on discogs with decent collections who do bulk shipping rates.
Check it ****s.
