Combining an eclectic mix of music, art, and photography, it’s a hidden haven for beat-makers and audiophiles in Shanghai who want to relax to a curated selection of Vinyl’s funk, soul, jazz, and hip-hop.

The space is rather compact and is beautifully designed by Prism Design. During the day, café-goers can browse the inspiration books upstairs, or preview records on in-store turntables.

The shop’s Vinyl’s music selection is curated by Both’s Kobayashi Yoshiharu, a Nagoya native whose passion for obscure records is evident when browsing the walls.

Kobayashi travels to Japan and the U.S. regularly to bring records back to the café.

At night, Both Music becomes a venue that hosts weekly DJ workshops, discussion forums with musicians, and film screenings.

As a collector with thousands of records back in Japan, Kobayashi wants people who come to the shop to be engaged and exposed to all kinds of music, old and new.
