Sound Shelter lets you shop the world's best record stores from one place.

Sound Shelter was set up for two reasons.

- to help music lovers find more music they love.
- to help independent record stores thrive.

We've spent a lot of time in record stores and owe so much of our music collections to them. Record stores are essential to a thriving music scene and we need to keep them alive.

As more people buy records online, we wanted to create an easier way for music fans to buy records, and to also support independent record stores.

How does it work?

Use Sound Shelter to dig through hundreds of thousands of vinyl releases across all genres - both new and old. When you're ready to buy, we'll find a record store selling the one you want and link you to their website.

We're very selective over which stores we list. We only list record stores we've tried and tested ourselves - stores that provide great packaging and fast shipping.

Who's using it?

Hundreds of thousands of record diggers from all over the planet use Sound Shelter to find stores to buy their new favourite record from. We list some the best record stores around the world including market leaders in the UK, US and Europe, and our store list is constantly growing.

Many of the worlds best DJ's and taste makers use Sound Shelter, including some of our all-time favourites.

What kind of music do you feature?

We specialise in underground electronic and soul jazz music but support all genres in our ever-growing inventory of over 150,000+ vinyl releases.

What happens if I sign up to be a member?
