It’s that time of year in LA, not too hot.. not too cold.. Kanye said it best, “The weather’s so breezy, man why can’t life always be this easy?”  Get up and get some Cali sunshine this week, but first get the freshest gear at Backside. Peep the perfect outfit grid with all your summer essentials, from that new Quiet Life tank to the classic G-Shock watch. We gotchu down to the Rebel 8 deck of cards and Backside lighter. Oh and of course, you know you need those Shwoods. Come thru or shop here for more summer finds.

On Saturday April 19, people from all over Southern California came to Backside Records for Record Store Day. For those of you who don’t know what Record Store Day is, I’ll briefly explain what significance it holds. On Record Store Day, many artists and bands release limited edition and reissued vinyl records on the third Saturday of April. Fans from all over the world go vinyl shopping in search of these limited edition releases. We at Backside had our shop flocked with customers. The majority of our limited edition records were sold to customers who were waiting in line outside the shop and behind the record bins. We had many talented DJs provide the store with all sorts of music by strictly spinning with vinyl records. Overall, Record Store Day at Backside Records was always exciting because there was never a dull moment within the vicinity of the shop. Our customers definitely had a good time.

On Tuesday April 15, 2014, Los Angeles based hip – hop producer Ras G released his second full length instrumental double LP, ‘Raw Fruit Vol:1-2.’ Ras G is the co-founder of Poo Bah’s Record Label along with Ron Stivers. He is also affiliated with Stones Throw Records, Leaving Records, and Brainfeeder Records, which was founded by Flying Lotus. ‘Raw Fruit Vol:2′ was  originally released on cassette on January 14 earlier this year, but I don’t think I need to emphasize on the difference in sound quality on a vinyl record. This is what Ras G had to say about Raw Fruit Vol:1-2; “Yup…U already know…..Raw Fruit 2!!! Same agenda, another raw “cold pressed” blunt smoking….green drink sippin…. beat adventure made at my SpaceBase for I&I to vibe out to Stay tuned for Raw Fruit 3 & 4 …..and yes they are done and ready to go!!!!!!” In my opinion, this double LP is very raw, psychedelic, and jazzy/futuristic. Overall, it’s a must buy and any beat junkie should add this piece of music to their collection. We at Backside carry this record, so feel free to stop by and pick one up for yourself.
