What makes us different from other specialist shops is our attention to essentially independent underground releases. We have very good relationship with the industry. This ensures us getting upfront promo copies of forthcoming releases and keeps us ahead of many other shops.Vinyl Addiction, as the names suggests specialises in 12″ dance music from right across the board from Drum & Bass to Breakbeat, House to Trance. We also have a good back catalogue and a very strong selection of artist albums.
