DJ Sets Up Vinyl Store and Cafe in Stockport


A top DJ and music producer has set up a vinyl store and cafe in the heart of Stockport.

Joe McBride started SK1 Records with an £8,000 loan from Stockport Business Finance Scheme.

Based on Little Underbank in Stockport SK1 Records will specialise in new and second hand vinyl records along with CDs, cassettes and accessories such as art prints and label merchandise.

The business already trades successfully online, and the new premises will include a café selling locally sourced coffee, soft drinks and cakes.

Performing as Synkro, Joe has been making music and DJing at festivals and clubs across the world for the past ten years, amassing a collection of more than 7,000 records which will form the initial stock for the new shop.
