Hidden away beneath the hustle and bustle of Liverpool’s iconic Bold Street lies Dig Vinyl, an independent record shop built around a medieval well and a true passion for music.
Established in March 2014 and quickly becoming a destination for tourists and locals alike, Dig Vinyl was the inevitable product of decades worth of record dealing, DJing, band managing, record label running, and music making of it’s founders, Anthony Nyland and Carl Emery.
Stocking a wide range of wax from deep psych to spiritual jazz and all stops in-between, Dig Vinyl aims to be a vinyl paradise for collectors and heads of all ages, budgets, and musical tastes. Managing pop-up shops at Liverpool Sound City and Liverpool International Festival Of Psychedelia, in addition to its over-achieving staff (Elliot Hutchinson, Al Sundvall, Nina Franklin) hosting radio shows on local stations (Melodic Distraction, IWFM) and spinning vinyl everywhere from Africa Oye and Anti-Social Jazz Club to Positive Vibration and Soul Weekender, Dig Vinyl has become more than just a record shop – it’s a success story and a testament to the love of music that drives Liverpool.
Having expanded twice in its current location, it’s clear that being underground hasn’t stopped this shop from rising up and creating a name for itself in the city. Now, Dig Vinyl are thrilled to announce a move out of the basement and down Bold Street, to their new premises on the first floor of Resurrection.
“We’re really looking forward to the move as we come up to our fifth birthday – it’s the right time and the right space. We are so excited to be staying on Bold Street, which, although there’s lots of amazing up and coming areas all around the city, is still regarded by many as the heart of the city’s independents. We’ve always felt that Bold Street is a huge part of our identity and that it’s been integral to our success, so this really is the perfect move,” says shop manager, Yvonne Page.
As sales supervisor Elliot Hutchinson points out, “we’ve worked hard to build personal relationships with our customers, which is an essential part of running a shop in the heart of the city’s music community. Our knowledge and taste has grown over the years, along with our selection and one-to-one recommendations. This move is just a natural progression of our desire to provide the city with a great independent record shop that caters to everyone.”
The new shop will be located just down Bold Street from Dig Vinyl’s current location in Soho’s, to the first floor of Resurrection, at 27-29 Bold Street, joining other independent businesses such as Rebel Barbers and Idol Hand Tattoo. Dig Vinyl will open in its new location on Friday, 25 January, 2019, with the same extensive stock, knowledgeable and friendly staff, and love for Liverpool and music that it was built on.
