Words by: Mike Styles Our pal and highly sought out Brazilian record collector and merchant from East Village NYC by way of Brazil is traveling with his amazing vinyl to Los Angeles! Joel Stones is bringing the heat, spirit and legacy of his shop Tropicalia in Furs to Rappcats, pop-up location this weekend in Highland Park.
It’s been almost three years since Tropicalia In Furs has gone Underground to Otherworldly Constellations to dig for the known + Unknown Raw Beats. Only you have the power to uncover the results of this Intergalactic Voyage. The Vault will finally reopen on July 25 – 26 at RAPPCATS!!!
“I will bring tons of Brazilian records, 45s, LPs, some jazz, funk, soul, prog, psych, garage, boxes of 45s with good French, Turkish, African, Northern Soul, tons of crazy stuff.” – Joel Stones
With this road trip/record caravan of course comes a long-awaited mix of gems by the man himself, Abobora Mechanica, previewing some of the stuff that will be up for purchase at this very exclusive engagement. We’ve been bumping this set all week, its a hour long and perfect for the season. If you’re into collecting records from around the world, or new to the style you don’t want to miss this. Take advantage, you won’t find original pressings and quantities from Brazil like this anywhere else in the city. See you there!
