Rarekind Records on Trafalgar Street in Brighton is a Hip Hop, Funk & Soul record shop with a massive collection of rare Hip Hop, both new and second hand. Every time I go to Brighton it’s this place I’m looking forward too most. A massive selection, sound staff, good vibes and I always seem to end up walking away with a free compilation or album from up coming UK artists that have a habit of being really good. They’ve also recently opened a d&b shop upstairs, RK Bass, which is always a good addition, although I generally end up getting lost in the Hip Hop section till my moneys gone.

Although it’s three monthly episodes deep, I somehow only just clocked onto the fact that they launched a podcast over on Mixcloud. It features monthly mixes, roughly an hour long, showcasing Hip Hop, Funk and Soul. There’s some really good tunes featured so it’s definitely worth a listen!
