The Esplanade Mall, located at 8 Raffles Avenue, is home to the renowned Analog Vault, a vinyl record store.
Established in 2015, this store is now a premier destination for vinyl records among music aficionados, especially in genres such as jazz, hip-hop, contemporary/experimental classical, world music, local music, and electronic.
The record store boasts an extensive array of thousands of new and pre-owned vinyl records spanning multiple genres, with the majority of used records being jazz recordings. Furthermore, the store is an officially recognized dealer of Audio Technica turntables.
When it comes to music genres, there is a wide selection of categories available, such as African Roots, Ambient, Electronic Music, Funk & Soul, Future Jazz, Global Sounds, Hip Hop, Indie/Folk/Pop, Japanese Music, Jazz, Latin Inspired, Modern Classical, Reggae/Dub/Rare Groove, RnB/Modern, School of Rock, Singapura, Soul-Jazz/Jazz-Funk, and Soundtracks/Library Music.
The shop’s name conveys its mission: to promote analog music culture. The team running it firmly believes that listening to music on vinyl with an analog sound system is one of the best ways of enjoying music.
As a demonstration of this commitment, TAV Records was launched in 2019 as an independent record label.
At TAV Records, we focus on spotlighting the work of up-and-coming Asian artists in a variety of genres, such as jazz, hip-hop, soul, and electronic music. We are not limited to any one style but instead emphasize progressive and unique sounds.
At the record store, one can not only buy vinyl but also books about music and music culture.
