I think when i first started buying from them they were quite reasonable.....but the prices did start to creep up a bit...

from what i remember the postage was a flat rate so I tended to do big orders rather than the odd record here and there.....if you only wanted a couple of records it probably would work out expensive...

they had a great website though where you could listen to 45 seconds of every 45.....both sides

I used to buy off them sometimes. They were good for big orders and had a massive selection of quite cheap stuff on labels like jammys. But the postage started to get really expensive from Europe.

I believe the sound system is still going though.

Still on facebook for mixes, and the sound as Steve T says:
https://en-gb.facebook.com/soundquake/

They were pretty cool because they had a massive stock so would have tunes when other people had run out of them. Plus being able to search their database by riddim and then listen to it all was very helpful - this was before most things were on Youtube.

I stopped buying tonnes of new reggae vinyl about 10 years ago though...

I used to buy Jamaican 7s wholesale from them for reggaemusicstore and they were great to deal with. I think the bottom fell out of the dancehall riddim stuff which they specialised in - the 16 artists on one riddim style and there was no longer enough business to support it. A number of other online stores fell by the wayside for similar reasons....

Their facebook seems to be getting updated pretty regularly maybe they will start another record selling operation soon from another premises. They had huge stock if I remember correctly

But the media keeps saying vinyl now is at a all time high and sales are excellent. Vinyl is making a comeback. This must be a marketing strategy by the big fish. But still more record shops closing not like new record shops opening everyday. So where is this demand the media keeps jiving about? When There aren't any producers who actually say their records sell really well.

People who buy vinyl are buying repress Beatles and Pink Floyd LPs for 30 quid. They’re generally not buying JA sevens.

I saw a Liam Gallagher LP today in HMV, was gatefold with a few pages of LP sized book in the middle.
Asking £47.99 for it.
I'm not a Liam Gallagher fan but if I was I would not be shelling out that sort of cash for a fancy LP.
The irony is the turntables they sell in HMV to play these overpriced records are are absolute pieces of S H I T.

This ridiculous ludicrous pricing is in every genre of music for new music which has just been newly recorded and released. They should not be charging these prices for a newly sung song. Never heard of Liam Gallagher thought he was footballer. The strategy seems to be gatefold or limited pressing etc and if you want your music to sell seems like you have to produce artists like Liam Gallagher and not any reggae artists.
