To the delight of dance music lovers across the West Coast, Eddie Vela and Rolando Alvarez, the partnership behind Los Angeles parties Midnight Lovers and Dialogue, have announced a brand new ‘Rare Vinyl’ record shop in downtown LA.

Chapter One Records will supply new, used and rare records curated by some of LA’s most esteemed audiophiles including TK Disco, Club Tularosa, SONN’s of Making Shapes and Dublab’s Daddy Differently. Resident labels include Stones Throw, Visionquest, and Let’s Play House.

The news of this new store comes alongside the launch of Vela and Alvarez’s new vinyl-only label Dialogue Records. The imprint's first release lands Friday 23rd April from Romanian minimal mainstay Ada Kaleh. His ‘Solace in Repetition' EP can be pre-ordered now.
