Jamie XX opens pop up record shop in London for just one week

'Good Times' is located in Kingsland Road, and will feature unique Jamie XX goodies

Jamie xx has opened a ‘one week only’ pop-up shop called ‘Good Times’, which will host radio shows and sell a few curated goodies.

The shop opened on October 16, and will remain open until October 23. It’s located at 73 Kingsland Road in Hackney.

Posting on his Instagram, Jamie XX explained the contents and goings on in the store, as follows:

“I’ve picked a bunch of records to be sold, including a selection from one of my local favourite store Kristina, a bunch of the records I sampled for [latest album] In Colour (bought off Discogs), some of my releases (a few signed) and other assorted gems. I’ve also curated a series of radio shows to be recorded live from the store and go out all week on NTS.”
