Well here’s a lovely thing – enjoy the sounds of three people (Hugh Herrera, Andi Hanley and Alicia) who really know their music backwards. I asked for some words from Hugh Herrera, the man behind Pacific Beach Vinyl – US-based online store, distribution and more, which I have appropriated below… This is a lovely one.
Since starting the shop, we’ve had an ongoing series called PBV Office Mixes which you can check here.
The idea at the inception was to showcase current records carried at PBV. That has changed somewhat as the more recent mixes have records we don’t carry any longer simply because it’s impossible to keep up with the velocity of sales activity, and of course, many things sell out quite quickly in the limited edition world we’re in, as you know.
The DJ has always been a “mystery,” and remains so.
The name of the series speaks for itself, I gather stuff to listen to at the office, though it is meant to suggest we are listening to the jams at the PBV HQ at the moment ourselves.
