Mod_ular Blanc: Acid Jazz 25th Anniversary Pop-Up
Iconic east London indie label Acid Jazz, commence their 25th
anniversary celebrations by announcing their residence within
Mod_ular Blanc; a conceptual space to be found on the first floor of
Ben Sherman’s Commercial Street store, opposite London’s famous
The Acid Jazz Vinyl Store will be curated by label boss Eddie Piller, who has hand-picked a mixture of rare and hard to find album re-issues from around the world to compliment a comprehensive selection of ‘pre-loved’ vinyl. Eddie Piller co-founded the label with fellow DJ Gilles Peterson back in 1987, and the past 25 years have seen Acid Jazz spawn genres, spearhead new movements and establish themselves as something of a national treasure.
In spite of a perceived irrelevance in the digital age, the demand for vinyl has grown exponentially in recent years, and has surprised everyone by making a comeback. Today, the vinyl record is seen as a luxury; a premium item offering not only unrivalled sound quality, but also a sense of nostalgic sincerity, and has seen its popularity rise accordingly.
The Acid Jazz Vinyl Store opens its doors on September 20th, and on selected Thursday’s throughout their residency will host special events with special guest DJs and drinks.
Monday – Sunday: 11:00 - 19:00
