Dedicated solely to underground dance music, The Ghost is officially the first record store of its kind – that is the world’s first on-the-move record shop that caters to house, techno and other musical offshoots of the underground electronic music scene.
Located in a 1970s Mercedes camper van, The Ghost travels around Berlin armed with listening stations and crates of vinyl, allowing record collectors throughout the city to peruse and buy from its collection. Mostly sourced from retired DJs throughout Europe, the roster of music available at The Ghost features heavily on house and techno, mirroring the sounds and styles of play of the stores two founders, Berlin-based Brits Josh Tweek and James Creed, both of whom have been DJing for years and are now also performing together as The Ghost.
As of right now, The Ghost has found a semi-regular spot outside Club der Visionaere, while also making appearances at several one-off parties. Those wishing to visit the store can make private appointments directly through The Ghost’s Facebook page.
Resident Advisor caught up with Tweek and Creed to talk about the vision for their project. You can read the full interview here.
