Record Store Day 2013 Wrap Up

Turntable Lab East Village was out of control from open to close for Record Store Day 2013. Our instagram (@turntablelab) was so busy, my phone unfortunately bit the dust a little early… apologies to some of our guest DJs for the lack of coverage. Regardless, thanks to everyone, DJs and customers, for rolling through and supporting us. Always good to have the homies hanging around the shop with the BBQ vibes. More soon!

More wrap up photos coming soon. Thanks again to everyone for making it through and be sure to follow us on instagram (@turntablelab) for more up to date freshness.

Top Thing That Happened In The World
Obviously the circumstances are awful but maybe Obama’s speech last night in Newtown. I felt really proud of him for saying what needed to be said but in such a respectful manner. I can’t imagine how difficult it must have been.

Top YouTube
Forever and always:

Top Instagram Lurk
I don’t do that but Roctakon put me on to Rihanna’s train wreck of an Instagram. I was into it for like 6 minutes.

Top Tang Of The Year
I dunno but I was just watching Higher Learning which is laughably awful but yo, young T Banks and J Con, so sick.

Knicks Or Nets?
Knicks duh. I feel like the Nets are for people who moved here like 2 minutes ago and “rep” BK.

Top Life Advice
Way too hard. Just try and be nice to everyone and go for walks and listen to LL Cool J’s first, second and fourth albums daily.

Best Hangover Cure
The bloody Mary at Roberta’s got me through a lot of Sundays this past summer. I love the whole hot pepper in it!

DJ Eli Escobar Interview


so after Roc offered such an interesting interview, I switched it up for Eli’s interview by asking Roc to pose the questions. i guess these guys know each other pretty well (or Roc is a stalker)… which is interesting cause whenever am hanging out with djs, sometimes I wonder how we’ll they really do know each other. you always see djs bro’ing it out at clubs, but do they really know each other?

so by the time you finish reading this, you’ll know a lot more about Eli and even Roc… go up to them in the club and ask them to be your bro… (ok maybe not the Roc)…


also remember to pick up the Roc x Eli Money Lotion 12″…

buy 12″ at the lab
