Dr. Freeclouds is a favorite amongst Southern California residents, and the shop has been preparing rigorously for Record Store Day the past three months. This small homey record store in Fountain Valley has an excellent selection of records, and is always a great place that caters to the DJ’s. With an excellent selection of house, techno, and everything in between, Dr. Freeclouds is a hidden gem for those in search of some fresh wax. For those in the greater Southern California region, Dr. Freeclouds is a must-visit come Record Store Day. Owner of Dr. Freeclouds, Ron D. Core, had a few things to say about Record Store Day and the vinyl industry in general.
6AM: Can you tell me some of the exclusive house/techno/electronic releases you’ll have for Record Store Day?
Dr. Freeclouds: Some of the electronic music artists we ordered for our shop are: Amon Tobin (Ninja Tune), Machinedrum (Ninja Tune) & Goldfrapp. Unfortunately RSD doesn’t cover too many electronic artists. RSD in Europe is where you see tons of electronic music support, hopefully that will change someday here in the U.S.
Some of the records I’m personally excited about are:
A-Ha “Take On Me” 30th anniversary 7″
Badbadnotgood & Ghostface Killah “Sour Soul Instrumentals”
J Dilla “Fuck The Police” badge shaped die cut picture disc
Wu-Tang Clan “Protect Ya Neck”
Tears For Fears “Wants To Rule The World”
6AM: What do you think is the most important aspect of running a record store?
Dr. Freeclouds: The most important aspect of running my shop is making our customers happy. We love our customers and appreciate all the business and support we get from our longest time customers to the newer faces we see. Also we listen to our customers needs and bring in the records they want. We work aggressively in keeping the store fully stocked and refreshed with the newest releases coming in every week and tons of classic used records which come in several times a day” We make everyone’s shopping experience personal when they set foot in the store or order from us by phone or online.
