Situated just around the back of Carnaby Street after moving from Soho, Deal Real was the go to place for Hip Hop records old and new; if you knew, you knew. A place where like minded people could come together, network and collaborate, Deal Real’s legendary open mic nights and in store events showcased new talent alongside legendary artists from the UK and USA in the most intimate of settings. The store unfortunately closed its doors in 2007, but for record store day this year, the Deal Real Legacy is reopening the store as a pop up for a six week stay on Newburgh Street, W1. The store will host an opening party, curated by Kano, on Saturday 18th April along with a host of other upcoming events in the coming weeks. Check Deal Real’s website to the right for more information and dates and we’ll see you there!

Have a good one.
