We love record shops. Of all shapes, sizes and locations - see our inaugural Record Shops of New York City feature here. Mexico City resident and film photographer Stephanie Aguirre picked these fine establishments in our look at record shops around the Mexican capital - all of them having participated in Record Store Day this year.



Retroactivo

Retroactivo Records started out as just a guy selling old records in his mum's vintage shop, but soon enough he had enough cash to move into his own space (he even has a vinyl assembly plant!). The shop features one of the biggest second-hand vinyl collections around. It includes limited edition records, along with all the latest releases. The owners are planning to expand the space so they can hold in-store sessions. Head over to their official website for more information.

Besides selling records, CDs and cassettes, Discoteca also provide workshops where they address many of the issues that shape the world of electronic and independent music. They've been in the business for years and have an online shop well worth checking out.
