Ever fancy flicking through Gilles Peterson’s record collection?

Well, Brownswood Recordings is setting up a special pop-up record shop in conjunction with Record Store Day. An avid record collector himself, Gilles knows all too well the buzz one gets from digging in the crates. So for one day only, the East London venue C.A.M.P gets a Brownswood makeover. Here, fellow vinyl enthusiasts can browse to their heart’s content courtesy of a marathon Brownswood move (and enforced vinyl cull). There will also be rare soul, jazz, groove, funk, and African records via his favourite UK dealers…. PLUS generously donated finds from celebrity ‘fans’ including Thom Yorke, Erykah Badu, Four Tet, Zane Lowe, Rob Da Bank, Jamie Cullum and more…

Brownswood’s resident visual artist, Josephine Ade Chinonye Chime will customise the shop into a traditional African street fair with her elobarate illustration cut-outs and textile prints.

All record sale proceeds will go to the Steve Reid Foundation. Steve Reid was an amazing drummer with a long and illustrious history that stretched from working with James Brown, Miles Davis and Fela Kuti through to his own Steve Reid Trio and more recently working with Kieran Hebden (Four Tet). He died from throat cancer in the US in April 2010 without money for treatment that could have saved his life. The aims of the foundation are to fundraise on behalf of struggling musicians in need of help and support.

Record Store Day is an internationally celebrated day observed the third Saturday of April each year. Its purpose is to celebrate the art of music.
