Introducing, The New Wave Records.

A Liverpool based (mostly) online record shop that’s curated like an indie bookstore. The shop is home to a growing selection of independent electronic music including ambient, Afro-boogie, highlife, balearic, house, jazz, techno and much more. All of the shop’s music has been lovingly compiled by Kelvin SM, a local records collector with a deep rooted passion for vinyl.


The New Wave
 online shop is the spot to hit up for Kelvin’s latest stock and to pre-order new releases and listen to snippets of records for sale. Order online for direct delivery or choose free collection and have your records boxed up and ready to collect from our radio studio in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle.

The New Wave Records is also a co-host of The Independent Record Fair alongside Melodic Distraction. Together, we put on regular gatherings of independent record labels and have so far welcomed the likes of Rhythm Section, Rainy City Music, Mr Scruff, Black Beacon Sound and many more to Liverpool. Lining up alongside The New Wave Records pop-up are a myriad of local sellers, labels, artists, clothes merchants and musicians.

Stay locked for news of the next Independent Record Fair dropping very soon!

The New Wave Records goal is to (slowly) work towards opening a bricks and mortar record store that compliments Liverpool’s existing offer. Until then, tune into their monthly radio show on MDR, catch them at a record fair or why not begin adding to your collection by checking out their brand-new site.
