A Sad Day In Music

We found out through our friends over at that record store Fat Beats will be closing its two remaining stores: one right here in New York and the other in LA. The store will shift over to online retail but many are taking the news hard “The closing of Fat Beats is just like one of my friends passing away,” DJ Premier said in a statement. “They promoted vinyl at its highest degree for the culture of good music and that makes it more difficult to say goodbye.”

RIP Fat Beats!
