The duo responsible for bringing authentic Mexican street food to Miami with the opening of their popular taqueria – Coyo Taco – are bringing the first record and convenient store to Miami’s popular Wynwood neighborhood. Alan Drummond and Sven Vogtland, in partnership Gabi Chiriboga, are launching “Lucky’’ Records, a boutique vinyl store that will bring classic records and exclusive releases to the heart of Wynwood.
Scheduled to open this fall, Lucky Records is expected to play a vital role in promoting the renaissance of growth and activity in Miami’s music landscape. With a music lineup curated exclusively by Tony Garcia, aka DJ YNOT, and founder of Nature Sounds record label, Devin Horwitz, music collectors and visitors will find a mix of new releases and vintage records with music ranging from old school favorites to present day beats. Necessary electronics such as turntables, headphones and DJ equipment will be available, as well.
“Lucky Records will work with the best DJ’s, producers and tastemakers to present a curated selection of vinyl that will rotate on a regular basis,” Horwitz said. “One month we might have a special old school hip-hop exhibit and another month, a collection that focuses on 60s/70s Latin music.”
Next to Lucky Records will be Wynwood’s first convenience store, offering everyday items such as bottled water, cigarettes, lottery tickets, assorted ethnic food, candy, and more.
“Working in the neighborhood, we realized Wynwood desperately needed a convenience store,” Vogtland said. “We decided to open one with a little bit of an Asian flare to complement Wynwood’s diverse aesthetic. It’s an exciting new venture to take on, and we look forward to watching it evolve into something bigger for our Wynwood community.’’
