wax record fair

Amoeba Music will be on hand at Wax, a record fair happening just up the street from us at the Capitol Records Building parking lot on Vine Street October 24-25. We'll have a massive selection of rare test pressings available, as well as autographed albums and more to pick up, as well as our famous prize wheel—come by and give it a spin!

Tickets for the event start at $10 and are on sale now. The even starts at noon each day and runs until 6 p.m., but early access passes are available for purchase.

Vendors include such labels as Capitol, Harvest, Blue Note, Virgin, Caroline, Stones Throw, Astralwerks, Federal Prism, Innovative Leisure and more. Expect artist signings, DJ sets and moderated panel discussions on ever aspect of producing vinyl.

You can even take a tour of Capitol Studios and Mastering. Mastering and vinyl engineer Ian Sefchick will lead intimate, 30-minute demonstrations showing how vinyl is cut from analog tape on one of the Capitol Neumann lathes, which have cut albums from such artists as Pink Floyd, R.E.M., Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alabama Shakes and N.W.A. (Tour tickets are $40 per person and limited to 36 people per day; buy admittance to the tour as part of your ticket package.)

Laid 11

Dial's sub-label Laid presents tracks by UK's Juergen Junker and Lowtec. Junker enters the Laid zone with two deeply-rooted house pieces. Lowtec has always been a main influence on the Dial/Laid family, and here he presents a dirty Rhodes stomper to hit the house floors again. Freaky alert!

Panorama Bar 03
Ostgut Ton

This is part three in a vinyl series of exclusive tracks off of Panorama Bar 03 (OSTGUT 017CD), compiled and mixed by Prosumer. Hitherto unreleased, the three tracks on this 12" tick all the boxes that make Prosumer such a unique DJ: house in its various identities. Soundstore starts the triptych with frantic fever visions of Chicago's second wave. Steffi slows down the pace with some serious deep house. To close, Hunee teaches you a freestyle lesson.
