About Hip City Records

Rob Messer started Hip City Records in 1989. Mainly mail order at first specialising in Northern Soul, RnB, and mod jazz. As years progressed so did the vinyl obsession. Nowadays we have a bricks and mortar store at Battlesbridge Antiques centre in Essex.
We buy and sell all kinds of music. From the 50s through to modern day. LPs, 45s, EPs, 12″, CDs, even a few 78s. Rock, pop, blues, soul, jazz, reggae, folk, funk, punk, metal, hip hop, soundtracks, country. You name it we probably have some of it. We’re open every day except Monday. We still sell mail order with stock listed on our eBay store and Discogs too.
