Oonops Drops – A Grand Central Records Special

Start listening

Besides my regular »Oonops Drops« show on Brooklyn Radio I thought of serving you a little special vinyl mixtape about my musical influences. When I started djing and bought my first vinyl records from beyond my country, Fat City Records (UK) was my first address. Lots of amazing records popped up which I didn’t know from my local record stores. It wasn’t long before I discovered the amazing releases from Grand Central Records which was founded by Mark Rae who also managed the Fat City store. Artists like Fingathing, Rae & Christian, Aim, Boca 45, Jon Kennedy, Only Child, Funky Fresh Few, Tony D and many more joined their roster. So I thought it would be time to dig into my vinyl crates for a little tribute mix to GCR (1995 – 2006, R.I.P.)!

Yours truly,
