Record Store Focus: Eastern Bloc, Manchester

The record store, cafe and events space for the vinyl purist

An integral icon in Manchester’s buzzing music scene, Eastern Bloc has been supplying the city with the sounds of drum & bass, jungle, dubstep, house, techno and electronica for over 30 years.

As part of our series profiling the best record stores and celebrating the people behind the counter, we’re delighted to be partnering with Eastern Bloc on Friday 9th August for a collaborative night of vinyl-appreciation. Alex T and Yuri from our DJ directory join Dimensions friends So Flute residents (Danuka & Yadava), and Eastern Bloc DJs: Means&3rd
Kerrie, Jim Bane, Tom Houghton and Cutterz from 4pm leading you into your weekend with slick selections…
