This is part of uOpen’s ‘Meet The Maker’ interview series - your exclusive opportunity to get to know the real people and personalities behind the subscription boxes you know and love, and the ones you will soon come to!
As the high-street record shop struggles to survive, a vinyl; subscription offers a great solution for collectors and vinyl enthusiasts to discover new and essential reissues from all genres. Let's hear from Mike to tell us more about it and how it all got started :
What sparked your decision to start up your box and how did you get started?
I've always been a fan of music on vinyl. Some of my earliest memories are of music playing in the house, & I've worked with music my entire life, running club nights and DJing all around Europe.
When the chance to do Wax and Stamp came along, it was a natural progression from recommending music within my friend group to sending new and obscure vinyl to a larger audience.
