Stella Polaris Celebration of the local record store...RSD 2014 is coming

On the 19th april, just when you think it's time to leave the city for easter holiday and forget all about records and music, think again. Nope.. It's the annual RSD day that started back in 2007. And it's now you have to focus if you are a record collector. Vinyl is coming to you. And you better be prepared.

Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1000 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. There are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica.Read more and get into the background of RSD here

I am old enough to think back on the ”good old days” they are still here..actually
When it was all about being there on the day the records arrived. The excitement and energy in the room of the local record store when you came down. Packed with djs at the turntables, loud music, tons of records flying through the air. New tracks, remixes.... and the ”nooooo damnn, last one is gone” or the relief when getting the tune of the day..
And just imagine… How much music has and still is coming out of record digging ?  Where would hip hop been without + club music ?….and you ?
But... thats all gone. Many of my local hero stores around are gone..history. But ther are still beaitful islands of vinyl around if you take a closer look. And that's what its all about now. Getting you out in the streets, out in the shops and re-discover the vinyl digging.

The latest Moodymann album
But don't forget your local record store. Keep coming back. Keep digging. Celebrating your local record store is not just one day. It's a weekly routine, maybe even daily. Dropping in, getting inspired. Buy that old jazz record with Art Pepper and pay a bloody fortune. Or being one of lucky ones to get the new Moodymann LP before its gone – sold out.
Getting a quick coffee with the kids and your local vinyl pusher. Letting him keep you addicted by digging that record out that day and making you realize, that you can't continue life without it.... and home you go with a record you never thought of, and you in heaven. Feeling being spoiled.

And just maybe..maybe this record that I worked on getting ready for RSD 2014 is just that one, that will save your day. Together with StellaPolaris we have produced a limited edition 12'' inch in clear loving deep bloody murderous red. It's a first time vinyl release of these two classic Stella Polaris tunes, some of the most popular ever lasting remixes especially produced for the Stella Polaris event in mind:

Side A: Choir of Young Believers
"Hollow Talk "Lulu Rouge's Stella Polaris Remix"

Side AA: Tina Dickow "Break of Day"
"The Stella Polaris Allstars Remix"

If you are not one of the lucky ones living close to a RSD shop, you can have a chance to order it online via the official Stella Polaris store. Stella Polaris cannot ship until the 28th april due to the release in intendted for the shops. But we acknowledge, that there are fans out there who simply do not have access to the sacret rooms of a local record store. And you should still have the chance to purchase this wonderful peace of vinyl.
