We are very excited to be able to introduce you to our new label Disko Kids. This is an amazing new label created by music loving parents Helen and Chris. Helen spent her 20's & 30's DJing around the country while Chris produces his own music. Being a festival loving, party person myself this family run label is music to my ears and felt like the perfect fit for our shop. So with no further ado, get yourselves comfortable, grab a glass of vino and read all about the creator behind the brand.
