As with every year, we present our annual round-up of our favourite records of the year, including 2018 albums, singles, compilations, reissue singles and reissue albums. We also have individual staff picks and artist picks for you to browse.
Aside from the incredible releases that have landed in store, its also been a great year for Phonica’s own labels, with artists such as Peggy Gou, Justin Cudmore, Secretsundaze, Kassian, Harrison BDP, North Lake and Pional serving up the goods. Keep an eye out for our 2019 series, we have some real gems lined up.
Events-wise we’ve seen in-store DJ sets from Leon Vynehall, Peggy Gou, Louie Vega (twice!), Nightmares On Wax and Auntie Flo to name a few. The summer months saw our resident DJs take over whole stages at Kala Festival and Alfresco Festival and our monthly London club residencies saw them working the crowds at Number 90, NT’s and House Of St. Barnabas. These will continue to roll through 2019, so we will look forward to seeing you there!
