Hats off to Joe who I believe is the force behind all this goodness. As he ran around for most of the night trouble shooting the booth, checking the sound and getting his own dance on toward the end of the night.
and the another that I missed
Cheers to everyone involved for pulling out some old DnB heads out of the wood work.
See you all next month.

This little write up is long, long over due. Some where about 6+ months ago I was desperate for a record store. With the death Yoshie Toshie, Capital City Records and finally DJ Hut. The DMV was looking wicked bleak for my vinyl addiction. Sure, I could roll to Crooked Beat, Som Records, or even CD Depot but their I would only be able to fine a record possibly two. This was starting to really force my hand to looking at Digital DJing as a real alternative. Then some where on a DJ forum I found a mention to a record shop called Turnstyle down in Richmond.
Now at the time my reaction was probably similar to yours, how long is that going to take me to drive? Especially when driving 6 miles in DC can take up to 45 mins depending on the time of day. Yea, I was little apprehensive, however one day the need for new tunes was just to great. After a coffee and a quick stretch, I was off on fine Saturday morning!
The drive was a breeze, finding Turnstyle on the main drag was easy, and parking was like shooting fish in a barrel. EPIC WIN.
A brief run down of the joint...
Turnstyle is a boutique electronic vinyl record store with a moderate injection of clothing & art work. Just thinking about this store puts a smile on my face. Joanna and Jessie the owners of Turnstyle have to be the nicest people I've meet in ages. Seriously, their comradely, costumer service and excitement for the dance community is infectious. This combined with a sick DnB/Jungle selection makes it totally tops as far as I'm concerned.
If your in need for scratching that vinyl itch. Take the time, make the drive and go visit Turnstyle. You will be glad you did.
