The Brooklyn Flea Record Market returned for its ninth anual fair. Set up along the East River you couldn’t ask for a better backdrop than the Manhattan skyline. The Flea market worked in collaboration with the Red Bull Music Academy to bring in over 50 stalls of record labels, shops and independent traders. RBMA also got local label heads to dj their portfolio.
There was so much to choose from and you would probably need a couple of days to actually go through all the stalls. I stuck to the second hand dealers and got a few gems. The stall that stood out was run by the guys at Sweat Equity Records, an independent online trader that had stacks and stacks of wax. The pricing wasn’t too bad with most records costing between $2 and $4 although some were going for silly money. Sweat Equity had an abundance of house and disco cuts. Here are a few we picked up.
