Pose for a photograph in your styley-est digs and with your Record Store scores, and make your mark on Tokyo Record Style!!

Organic Music + Planet Baby are side-by-side select shops nestled in the serene outskirts of Suginami-ku, Tokyo, offering a curated collection of very interesting used records from the edges of music (read: ECM, Leftfield, Avant-garde, Free and Fusion Jazz, Avant-garde), CDs, cassettes, books, and hi-fi on the “Organic Music” side, and vintage clothing, art pieces, handmade goods, and more on the “Planet Baby” side. With a cozy café-bar attached, it’s a lovely little haven for music enthusiasts, art appreciators, and record-loving homies. Founded by DJ, and author Chee Shimizu, a pivotal figure in Japan’s club culture since the early 90s, the store embodies his diverse musical knowledge and taste that span genres from ambient to experimental and everywhere in between.

You’re invited to join us at Organic Music + Planet Baby, and mix up, with homies new and old! We’ll meet there for some digging at 3pm, then maybe a beer or coffee in the cafe, then bye-bye, but not before a Tokyo Record Style Photo!

See you all Saturday, June 8th at Organic Music + Planet Baby! Everyone is invited!
