There's not too many spots nowadays but here in Montreal I do like Cheap Thrills:

Looks cool. We have a lot of old heads around here that still listen to records. We have a few record spots around here in my city. Also we have a lot of people looking for records just for vintage listening.

Yeah that's it. There used to be tons of stores but now it's difficult to find stuff but there are some stores that cater to the new generation, so they have lots of new releases.

I tend to sample CDs bc I don't have a vinyl player, so second hand CD shops can be full of hidden gems. CEX is the main one in the UK

I dig more for records to listen to. Sampling, when I do partake, is a byproduct.

I've literally sold my entire record collection cause i could find 90% on Soulseek.
I regret selling some of my singles which had acapellas on it that aren't anywhere on the net.

May sound crazy but Spotify has a lot of beautifully arranged piano music and other instrumental music.

Look for: "Peaceful Piano" or "Peaceful Guitar"

Not sure about copy-rights though...

Yeah that's how it is today. For those that still buy vinyl it's just for collection really. Other than that you can just download stuff and use Traktor/Serato.

Remix Records in Orlando. Probably the best record shop ever.

When i came up making beats we didn't have a record shop. and I was more into sampling opera and orchestra pieces so I ended up in the habit of using places like mp3va.com.. Pretty sure it's just some shady ukrainian site that is definitely not giving money to the artists, but i don't make money off this shit. It's easy to browse by genre and i always find obscure stuff, especially international artists. And you can preview every track too.. super convenient. Like 10c a download.
