  • Do you keep large stocks of vinyl and CDs and can you source me a rare record?

    Yes. Our website has over one million vinyl and CDs in-stock; we also act as a record finding agency locating records for customers that are generally unavailable elsewhere. If locating the record for our customers takes one day or one decade, we will keep on searching free of charge through our huge list of worldwide suppliers and second hand record contacts.

    We constantly purchase second hand record collections, this enables our customers to access deleted and rare records that are no longer available. We�re specialists in all genres of dance music, so we are experienced in whatever genre you need.

  • I've heard that many of the world's top DJs sell records to you, is this true?

    Many professionals in the dance music industry will use us as their first port of call when offloading large quantities of vinyl. With a longstanding interest in vinyl, we have built up a massive client list of Pro DJ�s who both purchase off and sell to Hard To Find Records.
