One day about 4 years ago, a week before Curtis was even open to the public, this man walked by, read our sign, smelled vinyl, and sneaked in under the half-closed metal door.
– are you guys open?
– well, not really. We are here just getting things ready to open…soon
– do you mind if I take a quick look at the records?
– yes man, no problem. Have a look
10 minutes later he approached the till with a pile of 300€ worth of records.
He paid and left with a smile on his face and a stack of new wax under his arm.
Wow! This causal encounter sure gave us a massive boost of confidence. We thought «…well, in the end maybe there is going to be a public who will appreciate our simple concept of a bar devoted to our love for good records and good sound. We were not so sure about it back when we were starting.
The man, being an old-school DJ and a voracious record collector, came back every single week after that, looking for more records and a Vichy Catalan sparkling water on ice and lemon
Talking to him we discovered that we have met each other about 3 decades ago, when he was a battle DJ and member of a breakdancing crew, and later when we were producing club music for the same local record label. Small world.
