Record Store Day was mooted in 2007 by independent record store owners and employees to celebrate and spread the word. The first event took place on April 19th 2008 and now the culture is spread throughout the world.

Kenya was among the countries that held their first Record Store Day in 2017 courtesy of Crate Society and Nairobi Soul Club; two groups that are championing the revival of vinyl records in the country.

The 500  limited-edition turntables will be available for purchase from participating record stores and independent hi-fi retailers from 21st April for aprox. $370.
