Selling second-hand vinyl, the shop will have a range of genres including house, techno, hip hop, jazz, soul, boogie, prog rock and more
New releases will also be available from labels such as First Word, Eglo, Tiff’s Joints and Group BraCil on offer.
“With Steak Records I want to contribute towards a record shopping culture that demystifies the ‘grumpy record store’ stereotype and encourages music discovery, while cultivating a creative hub for labels and artists operating in the South London area,” Jon Phonics told RA, confirming that release parties for his labels and more will also be hosted at the store.

He added: “The stock largely will be updated fortnightly with bits from recent trips to Japan, New York and Brazil, and there are plans for regular events that will act as launch parties for releases on both Astral Black and Scenic Route as well as spotlighting other creatives doing great things in the local community.”
