"Most of my memories from my teens and early 20s are of hanging out in record shops. Now DJs have software that means they get sent all their promos on MP3. But it's not the same as having to make sure you're in the right shop on the right day, just so you can get your hands on the new Notorious BIG track and be the first to play it in a club that weekend."

Warner Bros. Records is not only a partner in Record Store Day, but readies more vinyl for release than any other label. This year, we are outdoing ourselves with even more special releases to meet the demands of vinyl enthusiasts nationally and internationally as well.
A limited edition pressing of white vinyl version of the deluxe box set will be available for MetClub.com members and on www.becausesoundmatters.com on this Thursday, February 24 at 1:00 PM PST. THIS WILL SELL OUT QUICKLY.
Every order from Because Sound Matters will now come with a FREE "What Is Hip?" album (while supplies last). "What Is Hip – Remix Project, Volume One" features remixed classics from the Warner Bros vault.
