Another record shop has succumb to the economic vice grip that is squeezing everyone's pocket so tight of late. I have been frequenting the SOUL & DANCE EXCHANGE in Notting Hill for more years than I can count on my fingers and toes, so I was gutted to find out the shop is now empty. Neither can I count the amount of crazy dope records I have scooped outta here over the years (including several of my PETE ROCK & CL SMOOTH promos). LUCKILY the shop has not completely disappeared but instead amalgamated with their ROCK EXCHANGE branch which is only a few doors down. But even though, it is still the end of an era. I wanna give a shout out to all the SADE staff that have supplied my dope over the years .... including TOMMY, SEAN, TONY, JOHN, RICHARD, and ZACK. Thanks fellas, I will of course be supporting the new spot.
Good news! It's reopened! I was in there today...all that hip hop goodness found upstairs now.
The previous comment is incorrect, it has not reopened, was still an empty shop yesterday. Great shame, I really liked this place as they seemed to price far more reasonably than the other exchanges! At least they got the space upstairs at the rock exchange, but then again i really liked the space upstairs there before :(
